When President Donald Trump was finally exonerated in the Russia hoax in 2020, he was furious about the whole thing. Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton had facilitated the hoax in a coup attempt against him. He took to Twitter and asked when all the arrests were going to happen. The mainstream media and their bestie-for-life, Attorney General Bill Barr, got their panties in a bunch. They assured us that it was super-bad and totally not possible for the Department of Justice to arrest anyone on the president’s orders.
The Fordham Law Review published a huffy, 85-page legal opinion that it would be the worst thing ever if a president could tell prosecutors what to do. What did Donald Trump want to do—turn us into a banana republic or something? It would be the most unethical and immoral thing you could think of – a threat to democracy, if you will – if a president started telling prosecutors to get his political enemies. What they really meant was that the DOJ shouldn’t arrest someone when the president was Donald Trump.
It’s fine when Joe Biden does it. The New York Times has a stunning piece out in which they admit that Joe Biden gave his Attorney General Merrick Garland a direct order to Get Trump.
Even Joe Biden himself has said that he doesn’t technically have the power to tell the DOJ what to do. He has publicly stated, “What the Biden Justice Department will do is let the Department of Justice be the Department of Justice. Let them make the judgments of who should be prosecuted. They are not my lawyers. They are not my personal lawyers.”
Privately, however, it is very much a different matter. According to the New York Times, the nasty and cranky dementia patient Joe Biden even called Merrick Garland names when ordering him hurry up and arrest Donald Trump.
From the Times:
“Biden privately told his close circle of advisers that Mr. Trump posed a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted for his role in the events of Jan. 6, according to two people familiar with his comments. He also told confidants that he wanted Attorney General Merrick B. Garland to stop acting like a ponderous judge and to take decisive action.”
This isn’t a New York Times article that appeared in the past week. This was published back in April, just two months before special prosecutor Jack Smith indicted Trump. Joe Biden obviously issued a direct order to Merrick B. Garland via the New York Times, and sure enough, Merrick B. Garland took decisive action.
If you think back a few months, Biden also gave an everybody-be-quiet order to everyone in the Executive branch when Trump was indicted by that big, fat prosecutor in New York. Biden himself had nothing to say about the indictment:
Would the indictment divide the country? “I have no comment on that.”
Was he worried about protests? “No. I’m not going to talk about the Trump indictment.”
What did the indictment say about the rule of law? “I have no comment at all.”
Are the charges politically motivated? “I have no comment on Trump.”
President Donald Trump has been indicted on 78 charges this year—so far. We know the Georgia dingbat prosecutor is going to throw more fake charges at him for his phone call with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Jack Smith will undoubtedly level more charges against Trump when more evidence against Joe Biden’s bribery schemes come out.
Democrats can never imagine that the shoe will be on the other foot one day when they engage in reckless, Constitution-destroying actions like this. President Trump gets it, though. Here’s his statement from Truth Social following his latest indictment over January 6.
“Look, it’s not my fault that my political opponent in the Democrat Party, Crooked Joe Biden, has told his Attorney General to charge the leading (by far!) Republican Nominee & former President of the United States, me, with as many crimes as can be concocted so that he is forced to spend large amounts of time & money to defend himself. The Dems don’t want to run against me or they would not be doing this unprecedented weaponization of ‘Justice.’ BUT SOON, IN 2024, IT WILL BE OUR TURN. MAGA!”
