McCarthy Nails Biggest Problem Over The Charges Against Trump
The potential indictment of President Donald Trump is drawing a lot of attention, although his spokesperson insists there has been no formal notification of an arrest, and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s office has not confirmed the matter. This has George Washington law professor Jonathan Turley pointing out a lot of problems with the case, including potential statute of limitations questions, the fact that the feds refused to pursue the case and the Manhattan DA is seemingly trying to “effectively prosecute a federal case that was long ago rejected by the Justice Department.” Turley also noted that there was no push for prosecution when “Hillary Clinton faced a not–dissimilar campaign–finance allegation.” He concluded that this is a “terrible weapon when used for political purposes,” and something he believes is “all–too–familiar” in countries where political foes can be targeted by the party in power.
Andrew McCarthy, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is also speaking out against the possible indictment of President Donald Trump. In a recent National Review column, McCarthy called the reported indictment a “disgrace” and said it was a “nakedly political” move by a progressive prosecutor to benefit the Democratic party in the “long term.” McCarthy added that the case is “not only unworthy as a prosecution of Trump” but also something he believes Bragg would never bring against anyone other than Trump. He also told Fox’s Brian Kilmeade that the case hinges on the testimony of Daniels and former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, both of whom have credibility problems.
This case is a political witch hunt being used to target President Donald Trump. It is a clear example of the Democrats’ desperation to get rid of Trump. The facts don’t support their case, and they are relying on questionable witnesses, who have credibility problems, to make their case.
