Manhattan prosecutor Alvin Bragg is even more desperate. He is now prosecuting Trump for campaign finance violations from nearly a decade ago, claiming a nondisclosure agreement with a purported sexual liaison somehow counts as a campaign violation.
Federal special prosecutor Jack Smith claims Trump should be convicted of improperly removing classified documents after leaving office. In the past, such disagreements over presidential papers were resolved bureaucratically.
Biden, for example, improperly took out classified files after leaving the Senate and vice presidency and stored them in unsecured locations for over a decade.
All of these prosecutors are unapologetic anti-Trump progressives.
Some have communicated with the White House legal eagles, even though Biden is likely to face Trump in the November election.
Some prosecutors are themselves facing controversies if not scandals. Some wish to synchronize their drawn-out investigations and indictments to hinder the Trump reelection effort.
At other times, the effort to neuter Trump is waged by his rival Biden himself.
He has hammered Trump as an insurrectionist and guilty of a number of egregious crimes against democracy — even as Biden’s own attorney general has appointed a special counsel to try Trump on just those federal charges concerning the January 6 demonstrations, a dead horse that Biden periodically still beats to death to scare voters.
Biden periodically smears half of America who supported or voted for Trump as “ultra-Maga” extremists and “semi-fascists” who would destroy democracy.
Yet the more Biden and the Left weaponize the judicial system to prevent Trump from running, and the more Biden screams and yells that Trump supporters are anti-American and anti-democratic, the more Trump soars in the polls while Biden sinks.
The left privately knows that its historically unprecedented strangulation of democracy is increasing Trump’s popularity. But like an addict, it cannot quit its Trump fix.
In sum, the Left is creating historic, anti-democratic precedents that will someday boomerang on Democrats should Republicans win the November election and follow the new Democrat model of extra-legal politics.
Democrats are tearing apart the country in a manner not seen since the Civil War era — apparently convinced democracy cannot be trusted. So, itself must be sacrificed at the price of destroying Trump.
