The Center Square [By Tom Gantert] –
Criticism of Thursday’s indictment of former President Donald Trump focused on claims of election interference and political corruption akin to a banana republic and raised fears of potential persecution of Trump supporters by the FBI.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office handed down the indictment Thursday after its grand jury investigation into whether Trump paid money to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election to secure her silence about an alleged affair. Trump denies there was ever any such a relationship and he went on to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump went on to lose to President Joe Biden in 2020 but he is running again in 2024.
Lawyer Alan Dershowitz called the indictment the “thinnest case” he’s ever seen on the Greta Van Susteren Fox TV show.
“For it to be the first prosecution of a former president and the first prosecution of a man who is running for president against an incumbent Democrat, being indicted by a Democrat – a popularly elected Democrat – on a case as thin as this,” Dershowitz said. “I tell you, it’s banana republic time.”
Carol M. Swain, a retired political science professor from Vanderbilt University and a TV analyst, feared the indictment will lead to the FBI targeting Trump supporters.
“Be very afraid of what the Left will do while the world is distracted by the #TrumpIndictment. It gives the FBI an excuse to focus on triggered Trump supporters rather than hate crimes perpetrated against Christians,” Swain tweeted. “It also interferes with the electoral process by crippling the strongest opposition candidate. #2024Elections”
A Republican congressman said the indictment was about controlling the 2024 presidential election.
“Tonight’s indictment of Donald Trump isn’t about the law. It’s about power. Raw power,” U.S. Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, R-MO, tweeted. “It’s the Democrat Party telling the nation they will stop at nothing to control the outcome of the next presidential election. It is an assault on our democracy, pure and simple.”
Democratic U.S. Sen. Adam Schiff of California tweeted that Trump had to be held accountable.
“The indictment of a former president is unprecedented,” Schiff tweeted. “But so too is the unlawful conduct in which Trump has been engaged. A nation of laws must hold the rich and powerful accountable, even when they hold high office. Especially when they do. To do otherwise is not democracy.”
Another Democratic congressman from California said to trust the courts.
“The indictment of a former president is a somber day for America,” U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell tweeted. “It’s also a time to put faith in our judicial system. Donald Trump deserves every protection provided to him by the Constitution. As that unfolds, let us neither celebrate nor destroy. Justice benefits us all.”
One thought on “Dr. Carol Swain Fears Trump Indictment Will Lead To FBI Targeting MAGA Supporters”
The Dems-Leftists-America Haters are already targeting “MAGA Supporters” and call them White Supremacists, even if they are POC. They called parents who complained about Public Schools “Domestic Terrorists”. Jan. 6 was a set-up by Pelosi and the DOJ to create an “insurrection” – we still don’t know who Ray Epps worked for. In Michigan, the FBI planned, funded, made a fake bomb, and even drove the car in the supposed Whitmer “kidnapping” – it was a set-up. The FBI paid Twitter $3 million to censor people the FBI told them to censor. FBI Whistleblowers have said that the DOJ has ordered the FBI to find Domestic Terrorists and they have infiltrated many groups like the Proud Boys and encouraged them to take actions that can be called Domestic Terrorism. Yet they totally ignore Antifa and BLM. You can’t trust the FBI.
Trump supporters need to be very careful.
