I went on CNN to talk about the bogus, political indictment of President Trump.
If this were anyone but Trump, would this New York District Attorney even take up the case? It’s a simple question that I asked the CNN audience to honestly consider. Because when you put your political biases aside and view this through a nonpartisan lens, the answer is obviously that there is no way any prosecutor would bring this case UNLESS they wanted to go after Donald Trump politically.
Regardless of your opinion of President Trump, we should all be able to admit this fact: this decision to indict a former president and current presidential candidate on a very weak case is going to have serious ramifications for the future.
It weakens everyone’s faith in the integrity of America’s judicial system. And for all the left’s talk about “threats to our democracy,” I would certainly classify a weaponized justice system against political opponents as a threat to democracy. The fairness of our judicial system is essential to our nation’s rule of law, and the rule of law is essential to our democracy. This bogus case against Donald Trump undermines both.
