Throughout his tenure in the White House, former President Donald Trump frequently and publicly lamented attempts by his opponents to find dirt on him, his family, and his business dealings, referring to the broader crusade as a “witch hunt.”
The dogged determination of the former president’s foes appears to be continuing apace now that he has left office, with former Nixon White House counsel John Dean predicting the imminent indictment of Trump by Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance, according to Just the News.
Dean’s prognostication came in the form of a tweet, which also included a news report indicating that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was meeting with the district attorney’s office for a seventh time.
From personal experience as a key witness I assure you that you do not visit a prosecutor’s office 7 times if they are not planning to indict those about whom you have knowledge. It is only a matter of how many days until DA Vance indicts Donald & Co. https://t.co/OaqribQBQO

According to the Reuters report included in Dean’s tweet, Cohen has been participating in Vance’s ongoing probe of whether the Trump Organization engaged in “possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct,” but refused to comment when asked about the topics likely to be discussed during his latest meeting with the D.A.’s office.
Late last month, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to block a grand jury in New York from obtaining Trump’s corporate and personal tax records in what had been a protracted fight over their disclosure, as NBC News noted.
The records, which Cohen referred to as the “holy grail” for Vance’s probe, include millions of pages of material turned over by Trump accountants Mazars USA LLP, such as tax returns, related records, and written communications to and from the Trump Organization, according to Reuters.
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision not to block release of the documents, Trump assailed the move as an extension of a politically motivated “fishing expedition,” adding:
This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Despite their heretofore unsuccessful efforts to finish him once and for all – first with the Russia hoax and then with two failed impeachments – it appears there may be no end in sight when it comes to the left’s unrelenting pursuit of Trump.
