I have done a good bit of political litigation in my home state. What the Democrats are unleashing is stunning. It’s not just Trump and “his associates” that are being railroaded. It includes lawyers who did nothing more than provide legal advice on complex constitutional and election law issues. That’s all they did and they are being criminally prosecuted in GA and several disbarment proceedings are pending against them. Simply for providing legal advice to the wrong political party and politician.

Your going to be able to spend the rest of your life exposing the two tiered justice system that is destroying the country. What Carroll did to Trump can be replicated against any man at any time. Zero evidence is needed. Just hatred for the accused in the court and local community.

What will it take you to vote for Trump, Alex?

I would only disagree with the part about lawfare not being heard of much before Trump. The Republican Governor Scott Walker beat a recall effort in Wisconsin, then had the homes of his most prominent supporters raided by Democratic DAs in the "John Doe" investigations, until the courts intervened. And Rick Perry was a popular four-term Republican governor in Texas when he was charged with two absurd felonies by a Democratic DA's office. They've been trending in this direction for quite a while, and California filed a criminal complaint against Ron DeSantis -- for "human trafficking" -- in case he won the Republican nomination. See also the ten Republican legislators in Oregon barred by the courts from running for reelection.

Great piece to recognize the political nature of these suits and charges. However, I am curious about your comment "In those, at least, he has the protections that criminal law gives defendants, and the financial resources to use them." I don't believe he has been given the protections criminal laws are supposed to provide. The biggest one is the fraud case against him. Valid information was not allowed in testimony. The defense team was basically handed the only questions the judge was allowing in his courtroom. All legal and financial experts, who are considered the best in their field, were treated like liars themselves. You have to scratch your head and wonder how a judge, who is supposed to be impartial, was discussing seizing Trump's businesses prior to day 1 of the trial. This is all an attempt to break Trump so he doesn't run against Joe, leaving the only person left on the Republican ticket is a known RINO.

Our society cannot function if prosecutors and judges abuse their power to harass, bankrupt and jail political opponents. Furthermore, in the case of Trump, it is election interference. It is criminal whether committed by hackers or prosecutors and judges cloaking their actions in legal proceedings. In fact, election interference masquerading as legal proceedings is far worse. The prosecutors and judges need to be held accountable for these crimes, just like rogue cops who arrest someone knowing that arrestee committed no crime and that they planted the evidence on which the arrest was based.

Bending the law and loosening interpretations to try and bring Trump to “justice” is setting the stage for future tit-for-tat challenges that will prove far more damaging to the country than anything that Trump’s opponents think they’re preventing.

I wish the Democrat party would just go-ahead and change their name to the Communist Party. This is Russian Star chamber/ show trial type stuff. The bought and paid for media should be the most ashamed of themselves.

When the legal standards and framework are ignored, everything else goes to: medicine, diplomacy, borders, drug approvals, vaccines. corruption infiltrates everything in this dystopia

The left bastardizes everything until the fateful day arrives when they get sent to the reeducation camps, or to the gallows. They aren’t playing with fire, they are playing with neutron bombs. Blowing up civilization and leaving the Potemkin village intact. It’s insane. They simply don’t get it. They won’t be running things, their bodies will be fertilizer for next phase of the insanity.

I try not to engage in the inevitable hyperbole that happens every time any event, disagreement, revelation or whatever takes place and is immediately dubbed "an existential crisis" as if these occur every couple of weeks. Even climate problems--whatever that turns out to be --is NOT an existential crisis. So these Dems shouting these oft repeated claims that he is a threat to democracy and it's "existential" ring so ridiculously false I always think only the most profoundly under-read and simple of voters could believe this. This will help us keep our perspective and not over-react. You know what will cause over-reaction, fear and evoke a much more dramatic response? --politicizing the courts, the DOJ, the FBI, every 2 -bit AG and every editorial board of most newspapers. These double standards will foment a rash response or a serious reaction to "judgments". People burn down police stations and nothing happens. People pray in front of an abortion site and the gov't goes for 11 year sentences. Car jackings go unprosecuted in DC but a Daniel Perry defends others from a lunatic and that's who the system has to go after. I find it very hard to believe how some judges--judges for God's sake--are going along with this crap. Juries are idiots too often. But even States AG's must recognize the dangers here. How blind are these people? Adults should always take a step back and seek their own failings and motives when such blatant discrepancies occur, and see the wider implications of their narrow jaundiced eyes, particularly if you stand around defending the current corrupt regime. Moral questions must call out from your depths, no? I have never seen anything like this.

Alex, you brought a smile to my lips when I read the following passage: "Left-wing politicians, prosecutors, and lawyers may be sincere when they say they believe Trump is an existential threat to democracy who must be stopped by any means necessary. But they would be wise not to become what they fear."

It is not a matter of Democrats becoming what they fear. To the contrary, they are and have been exactly what they claim they fear in a stunning instance of projection. The Democrats do not and have not supported the Constitution or the rule of law for many, many decades.

Rather, they have used stealth and duplicity to demolish law schools and bring activist judges to the bench, where the Democrats' destructive agenda can be realized. They are enjoying success not because of their clever deceptions, but rather because of a vacuum of true warrior patriots in the judicial system prepared to fight against the conversion of the law into a totalitarian tool.

Alex, can I introduce you to Mr. Kafka?

I lived in a Banana Republic my whole life. I have never experienced such brazen political persecution and abuse of power as the one I am seeing now. It is astonishing and sad to see the Land of the Free in such a state.

I doubt you'll find a non-partisan judge anywhere in the entire state of New York. That's the new world we're fining ourselves in. The same is true of many other "blue" states. Justice is no longer blind. I'm just wondering what it will take to reverse this.

The only reason the Biden Administration is getting away with all of this is the corrupt main stream media. If this were reversed, a corrupt R going after a D, they would be all over this. It has taken an outsider like Trump to expose we are no different than any of the banana republics that are out there. Only by millions voting for Trump can we ‘maybe’ save our country. It must be overwhelming because the Democrats have a plan to rig the 2024 elections (as they did the 2020) . If it should get this far.

The demoRats have revealed who they are. They have gone 100% evil. Never ever vote for a demoRat again. At this point, anyone still calling themselves a democrat or supporting them is a bad person too.
