The Democrats are going after Donald Trump, no matter the consequences.
They don’t care if they trample all over the rule of law.
And Trump’s latest indictment is so much worse than you thought.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has officially brought an indictment against Donald Trump and 18 other defendants for attempting to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
Democrats are particularly eager about this case because it’s a state crime that cannot be pardoned at the federal level, and Georgia is one of a handful of states where the Governor does not have pardon power.
So if Trump were convicted in Georgia, he would have to do mandatory jail time.
And legal scholars on both the Left and the Right have called out the obvious political hit job at play.
What is racketeering anyway?
According to the Wall Street Journal, the term may come from those who made noise while someone else committed a crime.
In other words, people who committed no actual crime.
Lawyer and conservative pundit Will Chamberlain wrote, “Fani Willis just indicted a bunch of lawyers for doing legal work. Real banana republic stuff. Look – Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, John Eastman, and Jeff Clark were lawyers doing good-faith legal work. Insane to charge them with racketeering. These are good lawyers and good people.”

Trump’s lawyers are essentially being charged as part of a RICO case for testing out a legal theory.
The Democrats are literally weaponizing lawfare with highly-politicized prosecutions.
What’s the real crime Americans are being deafened to by these prosecutions?
Liberal legal scholar Alan Dershowitz ripped the four indictments against Trump.
During an appearance on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Dershowitz explained that “the whole strategy of all these four cases is to get a conviction before the election, even if they’re going to lose on appeal. I used to teach my students, many of them future prosecutors, if you bring a RICO case, that increases your chances of winning a trial and losing on appeal. The same thing is true with conspiracy and other cases involving mental states.”
Willis is using the RICO law to try Trump and his lawyers as if he were a mob boss.
Dershowitz added that “all four of these cases are designed to get quick convictions in jurisdictions that are heavily loaded against Donald Trump and these prosecutors don’t care as much as prosecutors generally do about having the convictions reversed on appeal, because that will happen after the election, which only goes to prove what I’ve been arguing now for months.”
The prosecutions against Trump effectively add up to election interference.
Dershowitz continued, “If you’re going after the man who’s running against your incumbent president, you had darn well better have the strongest case possible. And these are among the four, at least three of them, three weakest cases I’ve ever seen against any candidate…Otherwise, it becomes a banana republic. Anybody can prosecute anybody. And we’re opening the door to prosecution of Democrats by Republicans, Republicans by Democrats. It’s what Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist [Papers] is the most dangerous threat to democracy, and we’re seeing it unfold in front of our eyes. Very, very tragically.”
Democrats have crossed a serious line in their pursuit of Trump.
