[ Editor’s Note: Will Trump make an insanity defense case when he is finally cornered? Will evidence emerge that he paid a shrink to claim he was not responsible for his past ‘mishaps’ due to the ‘delusions of grandeur’ disease?
Whatever it is will be entertaining to some and painful for others, specifically, all those he will be taking down with him.
I am still confident we will see Jan6 justice, not necessarily due to the kingpin confessions at the last minute, but via all the staff people who know almost everything that their bosses knew, and who can give testimony against them for aiding and abetting an insurrection.
Trump is a man who added invisible floors to Trump Tower and over a half dozen huge mansions to one of his golf courses to pump valuations. Things like this are only done by people who have been getting away with it for a long time… Jim W. Dean ]

On Tuesday night, former President Donald J. Trump, rattled by information that his longtime accountants had declared that years of his monetary statements weren’t dependable, issued a press release of self-defense with new claims about his wealth. These, too, didn’t add up.
In a rambling emailed message, Mr. Trump referred to a “June 30, 2014 Assertion of Monetary Situation” ready by the accounting agency, Mazars USA, exhibiting that the yr earlier than his first presidential run his web value had been $5.8 billion. However that isn’t what he mentioned again then.
When he declared his candidacy in 2015, he produced what he referred to as his “Abstract of Web Value as of June 30, 2014” with a really totally different quantity: $8.7 billion. A month later, he upped the ante, releasing a press release saying that his “web value is in extra of TEN BILLION DOLLARS.”
…Amongst different issues, based on courtroom filings, Mr. Trump claimed his triplex penthouse residence in Manhattan was 30,000 sq. ft, when in truth it was 11,000 sq. ft — inflating its supposed worth by about $200 million.
Equally, the worth of his property in Westchester County was mentioned to have been exaggerated by $61 million via the inclusion of seven nonexistent mansions.
