Trump Word For The Day: Indictment

What is an Indictment?

An indictment is a formal accusation against an individual suspected of committing a crime. Indictments are generally only obtained for felony charges. An indictment is used as an alternative to a complaint in a trial court. A complaint is also an accusation against an individual, but the individual generally must have been arrested as a result of probable cause against him before the complaint can be entered.

However, an indictment against an individual can be obtained before any arrest is made. Further, while a complaint is an affidavit signed by the prosecutor, an indictment is the product of sworn testimony, sometimes by several witnesses, and therefore holds more weight in court. Indictments are used most in the federal court system but can be used in the state court system as well.

What this means to Donald Trump?

It means he won’t be getting much sleep while he waits to see who among his people are being indicted. Will it be one of his Campaign Managers? A treasonous General, his son-in-law, or his son? Once you find out who’s charged, you then have to start figuring out what they know about you? Are they so loyal to you that they’ll go to jail in your place? Will they flip on you faster than an IHOP pancake?
