Biden Wastes No Time in Going After Trump

A special counsel is announced just after the Biden Democrats lost the House, and as they’re running scared about losing the Senate and the White House in two years. I’ll leave it there.

It’s been only three days since President Trump announced his bid for the White House, and the Biden administration and of course its politically weaponized justice department have suddenly announced a special counsel to investigate charges against the former president. Well, it didn’t take them long, did it?

The three charges: retention of classified documents; obstruction of justice regarding the documents; and alleged interference with the peaceful transfer of presidential power, meaning of course the January 6 episode.

This will be the third independent prosecutor in five years to examine issues involving this former president. By the way, according to a Wall Street Journal report, the exact scope of the special counsel’s remit hasn’t yet been specifically determined.

So, in other words, as Mr. Trump seeks the presidency for the third time, President Biden and Attorney General Garland are going to do everything they can to prevent him from garnering a second term.

This Biden war against Mr. Trump has always been uppermost in the current president’s head, and the Trump presidential fear has run through the entire Democratic Party.

We saw some of it during the midterm elections, with Mr. Biden constantly talking about the “mega-MAGA, mega-MAGA republicans” — that of course was always aimed at Mr. Trump.

A former Trump aide, Stephen Miller, termed it, “Democrat Prosecutor running a team of more Democrat Prosecutors (with no oversight).”

The special counsel is a former justice department official and assistant U.S. attorney, Jack Smith, a DOJ chief of public integrity. Well, we can be sure that there won’t be much integrity regarding Mr. Trump’s presidential quest. Why? Well, I hate to be too cynical, but get ready for a barrage of leaks aimed at Mr. Trump.

Now, let me be clear: I don’t know if Mr. Trump will get the GOP presidential nomination, and I don’t know if he’ll be president. No one could know that. To quote the late Donald Rumsfeld, “This situation is a knowable unknown.”

What we do know is that Mr. Biden unhesitatingly will weaponize all his law authorities to attack Mr. Trump. We know that. It took the Bidens only three days to ratchet up their war on Mr. Trump.

For his part, the former president told Fox News Digital he “won’t partake in it,” and he called it “the worst politicization of justice in our country.”

The ex-president further said, “I have been proven innocent for six years on everything — from fake impeachment to Mueller who found no collusion, and now I have to do it more?”

Of course, I’m not a lawyer, but as I have said before regarding the Mar-a-Lago documents, the solution is for Mr. Trump’s people to just sit down with the national archives people and work it out. Mr. Trump has said that he’d give them whatever they want.

Regarding the January 6 Democrat committee, I’ve always believed it was just a political witch-hunt. There’s never been any evidence that Mr. Trump incited violence or prevented the peaceful transfer of power.

These charges that this special counsel is going to investigate seem like pretty thin gruel to me. Totally political.

You know, though, the Biden Democrats just lost the House, and they’re running scared about losing the Senate and the White House in two years. I’ll leave it there.
