Trump’s indictment on Thursday by the federal government has received a resounding response. Trump is defended by his primary opponents over what they perceive to be a two-tiered justice system. Trump referred to it as “the biggest witch hunt in history” and claimed officials were trying to influence the 2024 election.
“Very sadly, we’re a nation in decline, and yet, they go after a popular president,” he said. “A president that got more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country — by far — and did much better the second time in the election than the first, and they go after him on a boxes hoax. Just like the ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ hoax, and all of the others. This has been going on for seven years, and they can’t stop, because it’s election interference at the highest level. There’s never been anything like what’s happened. I’m an innocent man. I’m an innocent person.”
Some on the left are unconcerned with the abuse of the justice system. Others, like Chris Cuomo, who hosts a show at NewsNation, are not impressed by the recent indictment. He called the charges weak.
Cuomo predicted, during a conversation with Matt Taibbi, an independent journalist, that Trump would benefit from these accusations in the 2024 election.
I’m not sure if I am being honest if these investigations do not end up helping former presidents intentionally or unintentionally. Each time they hit him, the investigation level is lower or equal to the standard that would impress those who are looking at the documents.
Taibbi, who is also not a Trump supporter, echoed this sentiment.
I think that both cases fail to meet these criteria.
Cuomo stated, “I think that most people will not like it if you are swung at during an election by someone who does not have anything to offer. ”
Taibbi said, “Trump’s indictments are similar to situations that occur in countries in the Third World”.
Chris Cuomo and Matt Taibbi scoff and cast doubt on the charges Trump was reportedly indicted over.
Cuomo says they appear “at or below a level” anyone would deem “impressive.”
Taibbi say, “A person who grew up in a third world country, you would recognize this kind of thing… ” pic.twitter.com/LpXHp1rGTo
