The Trump Trial: Biden Running An Unhinged Campaign Of Revenge And Retribution

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MAY 30: Former U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media after being found guilty on all 34 counts in his hush money trial at Manhattan Criminal Court on May 30, 2024 in New York City.

On Thursday night, in a historic breach of all historical norms, in a move that puts the Republic on the precipice of serious constitutional disorder, chaos, and disaster, a jury in New York unanimously found Donald Trump guilty of 34 separate felonies, all stemming from hush money payments that were made to Stormy Daniels all the way back in 2016.

The legal case is an atrocity. It’s a ridiculous case — a political put-up job by Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg, who came into office pledging to “get” Trump.

Not pledging to find his criminal behavior that was actually criminal. Pledging to get Trump under any circumstances.

That, of course, mirrored the language of attorney General Letitia James, who was elected to her position in the state of New York on the basis of “getting Donald Trump.” The trial was a put-up job by the judge, Juan Merchan, who clearly wants Trump behind bars, which is why I believe he is probably going to send him to jail in July.

This was a put-up job by the Biden administration, which has been attempting to brand Trump a criminal and a felon since the day they got into office. Not to mention the Democratic Party, which has been attempting to label him everything from a Putin Cat’s Paw to a traitor to the country since 2015.

President Trump responded precisely the way you would think he would, with absolute sheer outrage. That was absolutely appropriate. He stated:

This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt. It’s a rigged trial, a disgrace. They wouldn’t give us a venue change. We were at 5% or 6% in this district, in this area. This was a rigged, disgraceful trial. The real verdict is going to be November 5 by the people. And they know what happened here. And everybody knows what happened here.

You have a Soros-backed D.A. and the whole thing, we didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a very innocent man. And it’s okay, I’m fighting for our country. I’m fighting for our Constitution. Our whole country is being rigged right now. This was done by the Biden administration in order to wound or hurt an opponent, a political opponent. And I think it’s just a disgrace. And we’ll keep fighting. We’ll fight till the end, and we’ll win.

Todd Blanche, one of Trump’s attorneys, said, “The timing of this most recent grand jury, meaning the 2023 grand jury that ultimately indicted President Trump, kicked into action less than two months after President Trump announced he’s running for reelection. And there are coincidences and then there’s coincidences and I don’t think that’s something that just happened.”

Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan D.A. who brought this case, spoke after the guilty verdict was delivered in a Manhattan courtroom that was stacked from the start, saying, “While this defendant may be unlike any other in American history, we arrived at this trial and ultimately today at this verdict in the same manner as every other case that comes to the courtroom doors — by following the facts and the law in doing so, without fear or favor.”

That is an extraordinary lie. There’s never been a case like this, where they used a novel legal theory specifically to get Trump before the election.

When Democrats say that all they want is the law followed without fear or favor, it’s weird how they were perfectly fine with James Comey letting Hillary Clinton off the hook for obvious criminal conduct in 2016 with the excuse that she was running for president.

They don’t want election interference, but they’re totally fine with Trump being prosecuted for charges that are absolute trash.

WATCH: The Ben Shapiro Show

They are also perfectly fine with the DOJ letting Joe Biden, the current President of the United States, off the hook, even though he clearly involved himself in criminal conduct in terms of mishandling classified material because he’s a doddering old fool who then goes out and rips the prosecutor for mentioning that he’s a doddering old fool and in the process shows himself to be even more of a doddering old fool.

You are totally fine, apparently, if you’re a Democrat, with the DOJ originally trying to cut such an extraordinary sweetheart deal with the president’s son. It was only scuttled when a judge looked at it and said, what the hell is this? And the only reason that Hunter Biden is being brought up on charges now is because a judge looked at the original sweetheart deal brought by Merrick Garland’s DOJ and said it was so obviously corrupt there was no way he could greenlight this prosecution deal.

As far as the political obviousness of the situation, one of the big prosecutors in this case was Matthew Colangelo. The DNC paid him $12,000 in January 2018 for political consulting. He donated to Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008. He was the third-ranking official at President Biden’s Justice Department. He then joined Bragg’s office in December 2022, and just a few months later, they launched this current investigation into Trump.

And we’re supposed to believe there was no coordination, that Joe Biden knew nothing about this, that this was just the workings of the “gears of justice”? That’s all this is?


Meanwhile, the judge, obviously a partisan Democrat, donated a small amount to the Biden presidential campaign in 2020, as well as to ActBlue, which is an activist group. His daughter, a Democratic activist, serves as president of Authentic Campaigns, a firm that does digital campaign work like online fundraising, and they work with Democratic political candidates. Not only that, but she was also apparently the director of digital persuasion for Vice President Kamala Harris’s 2020 presidential campaign, according to CNN.

So there is a partisan Democrat judge, a partisan hack prosecutor, and a set of charges that are just garbage.

This thing was rigged from the start the same way that the O.J. Simpson trial was over the minute they moved it from Brentwood to downtown L.A. because of the jury pool. The minute that this was a case initiated in Manhattan, the trial was over.

This is a cataclysmic circumstance for the country. Because when you have the chief political rival of the president of the United States being brought up by allies of the president of the United States in a court on spurious charges so the entire media and Biden can claim he’s a convicted felon, you are looking at incipient tyranny.

Democrats are playing with fire. They don’t seem to care if they burn down every institution in the country in order to get Trump. Nor do they seem to care if they blow up the law in order to get Trump.

The most important thing is getting Donald Trump. And then they have the temerity to project that Donald Trump is the threat to democracy.

The Biden-Harris campaign put out this statement:

In New York today, we saw that no one is above the law. Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his own personal gain. But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president.

The threat Trump poses to our democracy has never been greater. He is running an increasingly unhinged campaign of revenge and retribution, pledging to be a dictator ‘on day one’ and calling for our Constitution to be ‘terminated’ so he can regain and keep power. A second Trump term means chaos, ripping away Americans’ freedoms and fomenting political violence – and the American people will reject it this November. 

That last paragraph is one of the greatest examples of projection I’ve ever seen in my life. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who have trumped up a series of charges in four separate jurisdictions against Trump, say the threat Trump poses to democracy has never been greater.

Here is just a short list of ways in which Joe Biden is a threat to our democracy:

  1. He and his party have activated apparatchiks at the state level to use federal charges, of which they have no jurisdiction, to attempt to jail his political opponent, who is currently leading him in the swing states in the polls.
  2. He activated his DOJ to target Trump in three separate jurisdictions. 
  3. That same DOJ was activated in order to scuttle a case against Joe Biden and scuttle the case against Hunter Biden. 
  4. He tried to use OSHA to force 80 million Americans to vaccinate against their will. 
  5. Biden defies the Supreme Court on a regular basis by alleviating student loan debt in violation of law, and then brags about it.
  6. He continues to falsely claim in front of black audiences that if he loses, it will be because Republicans suppress the vote, which is a blatant, outright anti-democratic lie. 
  7. He has used government agencies to repeatedly threaten social media companies. 
  8. He has attacked states for enforcing border law. He has used federal predominance over border law to keep the border wide open. 

But Donald Trump is the tyrant? Are you kidding me? 

Biden is running an unhinged campaign of revenge and retribution. His entire campaign is based on the idea that Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy, and he must be stopped by any means necessary. 

“A second Trump term means chaos”? Have you looked around lately, Joe? The Middle East is on fire. Ukraine is on fire. Taiwan is being routinely threatened by China. Inflation has raged out of control for over three years. Our economy is stagnating. Our social fabric is ripped. 

And in the middle of this, you throw the lit-fuse bomb at your political opponent, who might be jailed, and you have the temerity to say this is about upholding the law?
