“Lawfare” is the term used to describe what happens when corrupt regimes use the legal system and institutions to damage or delegitimize a political opponent. Most Americans aren’t very familiar with the concept, because it’s never happened in our country before on such a wide scale. It’s happening now.
It’s happening to peaceful January 6 prisoners like Joe Biggs, who was sentenced to 17 years in prison for basically saying words that made Joe Biden feel all butthurt.
Lawfare is also being used against President Trump. That’s all these indictments are. They’re trying to delegitimize and demoralize him and falsely paint him as a demon, and they’re illegally using the legal system to do so.
Since last year, Donald Trump has been forced to pay $101 million in legal fees. He did so using funds from the Save America PAC which he founded.
The reason why his legal fees are so high is because lawyers are now terrified to represent him, which is a right that he’s guaranteed under the Constitution. But for the first time in American history, lawyers are being prosecuted for offering Donald Trump legal counsel. The lawyers that he has now are charging an arm and a leg, because they know that their own freedom is on the line just to defend him.
The Save America PAC only has $4 million in cash on hand right now, because of the legal fees. Save America PAC is a plain old PAC, rather than a super PAC, so it can disperse funds for anything it wants (different rules for different types of PACs). In order to stay out of the red, Trump’s campaign has transferred funds from a couple of other affiliated super PACS into the Save America PAC.
Because they’ve indicted him four times now—not to mention the $5.5 million legal judgment against him in the crazy rape lady (E. Jean Carroll) civil trial—Trump has been forced to pay $101 million to defend himself and his colleagues (he’s not spending it all on himself, in other words). Trump has spent more fighting these lawfare tactics than all other 2024 presidential campaigns have spent on their campaigns combined.
And that’s the point.
Ron DeSantis has blown through $20 million so far and there’s no new campaign cash coming in. He got no bump whatsoever in the polls from the first GOP debate. The “Ron to the Rescue” super PAC that opened last year with $50 million in donor pledges has just shut down. The owner of the super PAC, John Thomas, says the donors have been spooked by all the bungling “rookie sh*t” mistakes by the DeSantis team.
The other super PAC supporting DeSantis, Never Back Down, is shutting down all of its door-knocking and other operations in Nevada, California, Texas and North Carolina. They’re bleeding money and they have nothing to show for it. Any perceived animation at this point is just the corpse of the DeSantis campaign twitching. It’s over.
Amazingly, Democrat voters think that Trump is even more of a villain for defending himself by paying these legal fees. Most of the cash that he’s had to spend on lawyers and court costs has come from small dollar donors. Yet if you read the comments on articles about his legal expenses, Joe Biden voters are stunned.
“Do his campaign contributors realize this is what their campaign contributions go towards?” asked one doofus on Yahoo News.
As if Trump is the bad guy here, and not the banana republic regime that keeps indicting him on “novel legal theories” that don’t involve any violations of law. I hate these people.
Am I angry that Trump has been spending campaign donations on his legal fees? Yes, absolutely. But I’m not mad at Donald Trump. I’m furious at Joe Biden for forcing Donald Trump to do this. I plan to write him another check soon.
Trump is now leading Joe Biden by a minimum of 4 points in all the battleground states. There are roadblocks and hurdles that our side has put in place in most swing states that will prevent them from stealing the 2024 election. They know they can’t beat him at the ballot box, so they’re resorting to lawfare to try to crush him.
