Trump Guilty Verdict: It Could Happen to You

by Stephen Green

The fix was in against Donald Trump. You knew it, they knew it, everyone knew it. The Left didn’t even try to hide it. New York DA Alvin Bragg campaigned on nailing Trump, and he received money from a George Soros-supported group. Judge Juan Merchan repeatedly slammed down Trump’s defense, let the prosecution run wild, and gave the Manhattan jury instructions that took them by the hand and walked them directly to a guilty verdict.

This miscarriage of justice was so conspicuous and outrageous that Trump’s 2024 campaign site crashed from people trying to donate. Even Sen. Susan Collins — the MAGA-averse RINO from Maine — warned that “The political underpinnings of this case further blur the lines between the judicial system and the electoral system.”

After Trump was sworn into office way back in 2017, he declined to have the Department of Justice investigate, much less prosecute Hillary Clinton. Despite his “Lock her up!” chant, he later said that going after Clinton would be too divisive.

But stacking the deck in a court of law against a political opponent wasn’t too divisive for Democrats. Another old X acquaintance — an attorney and not a Trump fan — reminded readers that “Our justice system depends on having a critical mass of honest prosecutors and judges, and straight juries. It also depends on the public believing in the system. All of this corrodes it like rust.”

National Review’s Jeff Blehar really nailed it when he posted to X last night, “Gonna be wild when Trump appeals a conviction based upon questionable legal theories all to the way to the Supreme Court and you suddenly realize why the Left has been methodically laying so much groundwork in advance trying to tar SCOTUS as corrupt.”
