A bright political future awaits Republican leaders who stand against the misuse and abuse of prosecutorial power by a Democrat county prosecutor. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis of Georgia has taken it upon herself to interfere with the 2024 presidential contest by unjustifiably indicting leading candidate Donald Trump. So far, too few Republican officials have spoken up against it, which if allowed against Trump would be replayed against other conservative candidates in the future.
But grassroots Republican voters have been energized by this latest assault on President Trump, and his primary rivals should form a united front so that Trump can focus on overcoming this 19-ring circus in Fulton County, Georgia. The big donor dollars being wasted by Republicans In Name Only should be reallocated to provide a legal defense to the Republican victims of this atrocity.
The First Amendment rights of Trump and his supporters are not to be burdened by political hacks disguised as county prosecutors. Political speech rights should be better protected against an out-of-state indictment by a partisan prosecutor, and laws should be strengthened to prevent this sordid spectacle from ever happening again.
Every Republican candidate running for every federal office should be compelled to answer the question of what they will do to prevent the ongoing abuse of prosecutorial power by Democrats to try improperly to win elections. Voters deserve more than mere platitudes about the weaponization of government by the Left. Congress should begin by issuing subpoenas on prosecutors who misuse their offices to interfere with a presidential election.
This issue is too important to be ignored by American voters. This is about whether we will allow two of our sacred institutions to be undermined in order to favor one candidate for office over another, all at the expense of the American people’s voice. Our justice system and our electoral system cry out for champions who will defend them against this assault. What Republican candidates and officials would be willing to answer that call?
