Democratic strategist James Carville is not known for being shy with his opinions. But lately he has been pushing this thought: Donald Trump’s behavior is motivated by one overarching worry: going to jail. Last night on Twitter, Carville wrote:

A nutty week by any standards. But I want to call attention to what Donald Trump is really aiming for. It’s not a distraction, it’s not to motivate his base, it’s not based on anything other than fear

The orange perp knows that what awaits him in 39 days is a resounding electoral defeat. Yes, his cronies may pardon him on federal level but his bigger issue is w/ the distinguished Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance whose team has sniffed out this Trump family scam.

They are ready to pounce. Everything Trump thinks/breathes everyday is aimed at 1 thing, staying out of jail. He wants leverage to get a pardon from New York Gov. Cuomo before he will leave 1600 Penn. Prison won’t suit him or family well and his survival instinct has kicked in.

The Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr. says his office is investigating “public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization.”

Vance and his office have also announced that his office has the grounds to investigate the president and his businesses for tax fraud, according to New York Magazine.
