Until now, American voters have been allowed to select our next president without interference by federal prosecutors. In a free election the People can decide which issues are significant, such as entanglement in foreign wars, and which are petty, such as the location of some old papers from the previous administration. But the federal workers who pursue political prosecutions of Trump and his supporters are as hostile to democracy as they are clueless about the loyalty of Trump voters. Special prosecutor Jack Smith, who disgracefully prosecuted Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell until Smith was reversed by the Supreme Court, now demands that Trump face a speedy trial, so that Smith’s office rather than the voters can decide the reelection of Trump.
Jack Smith’s unprecedented indictment was randomly assigned to Judge Aileen Cannon, who had previously smacked down the feds after their excessive raid of Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago last August. In that case she told the federal Trump-haters to back off, and she properly appointed a respected former judge to review the documents that were seized in the raid. On appeal to a higher court, Judge Britt Grant, whose husband worked for nearly a decade for the Deep State at the CIA, showed improper rudeness to Trump’s attorney. Also on the panel was Judge Bill Pryor, who is often a rubber-stamp for prosecutors, and they reversed Judge Cannon’s fair ruling.
Yet now the liberal media, led by the New York Times, complain about the random assignment of the Trump indictment to Judge Cannon, despite her lack of any conflict of interest. What liberals dislike is her independence from politics, which is what a good judge should display. The obvious political bent of this indictment is designed to give the Deep State exactly what they want. The left will ignore the political nature of the charges because they want to destroy Trump at any cost. The primary opponents of Trump will use the political nature of the charges to claim that Trump is somehow unelectable “damaged goods.” Yet, Trump supporters know better than anyone that basing voting decisions on “electability” is the quickest path to defeat. Americans crave a choice, not an echo of the disgraceful Deep State cronies.
