Good evening comrades, welcome to the brave new world in which political enemies aren’t considered “innocent until proven guilty” — but rather, are graciously afforded “the right to a trial to prove their innocence.”

Don’t take my word for it, listen to former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  In reaction to Manhattan Alvin Bragg indicting former President Donald Trump, Pelosi tweeted: “The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”

Right now, Trump is “guilty” in Pelosi’s eyes. In fact, he has been considered “guilty” by the Democrats ever since he beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s why for nearly seven years, Congress, the Justice Department, the FBI, the State of New York, and more have been trying to nab the “Bad Orange Man.” They just haven’t been able to actually get him in handcuffs as they’ve dreamed about.

Finally, the Left found just the guy to do it for ’em: A Soros-backed prosecutor who demoted 52% of felonies to misdemeanors in 2022.

In reaction to Pelosi’s stunning tweet, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, tweeted: “Pelosi confirms malicious political prosecution by suggesting Trump is guilty until proven innocent!”

Gerry Callahan, writer and of host of “The Gerry Callahan Show,” tweeted: “Holy sh**. Someone has to tell this hag that no one has to PROVE THEIR INNOCENCE in America. At least that’s how it worked for the first 240 years. Then Trump came along and broke their brains.”

What exactly is Trump accused of again? Well, as explained by attorney and law professor Jonathan Turley, it seems like it will be a “legally pathetic” case that defies precedent by claiming that an alleged hush money payment to a porn star was really a political expenditure, not a personal expense, that ran afoul of the law. If that seems like political chicanery to you, it’s because it would be and would lead to far more volatile politics in America. As Turley said on Fox News, “Donald Trump may be the first former president to be indicted, but if this is the precedent, he won’t be the last.”

It certainly seems America is heading in that direction.

When the most powerful woman in Washington doesn’t even bother to hide her blatant disregard for a cornerstone of America’s justice system — innocent until proven guilty —  then it is plain as day that this case is rotten to its core —as if you needed any more evidence.
