The sham indictment of Donald Trump in D.C. may be just one of the indictments facing him, but this one in particular has given many Republicans a sour taste for the federal government weaponized for political gain against them. The army of prosecutors going after Trump includes campaign donors to Biden, and their indictment is as contrived as any ever seen in federal court.
Biden’s politicized DOJ even demanded that the court gag Trump while he campaigns for president, which would infringe on the First Amendment rights of Americans to hear what the leading candidate has to say about vital national issues. As Trump summarized on his Truth Social platform, “So, based on yet another Radical Left Hoax, I’ll be the only ‘Politician’ in American history not allowed to SPEAK.”
The charges against Trump pretend that he entered into a conspiracy, which means an actual agreement with others to do something unlawful. Disputing an election, speaking out against suspected election fraud and encouraging others to do likewise, is protected by the First Amendment and not unlawful.
The Biden donor-prosecutors misuse the conspiracy charge to litter the indictment with statements and actions by people other than Trump, and then wrongly accuse Trump of them. Charging someone with criminal conspiracy based on the actions of someone else can be a trick misused by prosecutors when they lack criminal evidence against their target.
This indictment is a textbook case of lawfare, a portmanteau of law and warfare which describes when the left uses excessive litigation to punish their political opponents. Trump has proven in the past that he doesn’t take kindly to efforts to silence him, but a gag order from a judge during the campaign could spell disaster for both our legal system and our election systems. The future of Trump is not the only matter at stake here. This is bigger than even the larger-than-life 45th president. This is about the way Americans view our judicial system, and every eye is watching for the outcome in our nation’s capital.
