This is a dangerous time for America.
Because as the Wall Street Journal states, “for the first time in U.S. history, the prosecutorial power of the federal government has been used against a former President who is also running against the sitting president.” (WSJ, 6-10-2023.)
Using the power of government to eliminate political opponents is what happens in dictatorships. It’s what happens in places like China, N. Korea and Iran and banana republics like Venezuela where the strongman in power uses the military to crush his political opposition.
It’s not supposed to happen in America, but it is happening here.
The Trump indictment is nothing other than the Biden forces trying to destroy their chief rival for the presidency and they have formally weaponized our federal government to do it.
We can stop pretending this decision to indict was removed from the influence of the Biden White House. That’s laughable. The Special Counsel who brought this indictment was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to create the appearance of separation, but the special counsel’s recommendation can be overruled by AG Garland who is going to do what the Biden White House tells him to do.
That’s why many Americans believe the Biden White House is orchestrating this political persecution.
Former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes stated she believes President Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been treated “so differently” when it comes to allegedly mishandling classified documents. (Newsmax, 6-12-23).
“She (Hillary Clinton) was treated so differently,” Hakes stated. “She was brought in to interview at the FBI. She was allowed to have her lawyers with her. Her lawyers were given immunity before they were allowed to sit with her. Nobody ever seized her server to look at it, to do any kind of forensic review of it and you have here President Trump … his lawyers were actually brought into the grand jury and ordered by a judge to testify as to things that would ordinarily be considered privilege. There was a raid on Mar-a-Lago and then there was a grand jury investigation and then there was a special counsel. Trump and Clinton were definitely treated differently so it’s hard for me to see Lady Justice with her blindfold on at this moment.” (Newsmax, 6-12-23)
Former law professor, liberal Democrat Alan Dershowitz has stated his grave doubts about the strength of this indictment.
“Is it strong enough to justify an indictment of the leading candidate to challenge the president in next year’s election? Even with the recorded statements, this case isn’t nearly as strong as the one that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974. Nixon was almost certainly guilty of destroying evidence, bribing witnesses and other acts of obstruction. Many of the charges in this case are matters of degree. Nor have prosecutors any evidence that Mr. Trump’s actions damaged national security more than those of Mr. Biden, Mr. Pence and Mrs. Clinton did.” (WSJ, 6-12, 23).
Former Asst. U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy underscores this point stating “we have a long record that now goes on for years with Hillary Clinton the most notorious case of it, where you have a two-tiered justice system and its obvious that the quality of justice that people get is dependent on their partisan affiliation or whether they are connected to people in the ruling class or not.” (FOX News).
Hillary Clinton kept 33,000 classified emails, Joe Biden had multiple locations including the floor of his garage at home with classified documents he could not legally possess as Vice President; even Barack Obama withheld documents—but none of them were raided by the FBI as Trump was, and certainly none but Trump was ever criminally charged.
And all of this is to say nothing about the latest information that then-VP Joe Biden took $5 million dollars in a bride from a higher up at Burisma, the Ukrainian energy giant. Are we really supposed to believe that the rushing out of the Trump indictment as the Biden bribery case explodes is coincidental?
This is also to say nothing of the coverup of the Hunter Biden laptop by the FBI and DOJ, all the while Biden’s own classified document scandal has disappeared from the public radar.
Again, this is the weaponization of the federal government against the chief political opponent of the regime in power. As Americans who believe in equal justice under law, we simply cannot tolerate it.
