Trump Verdict Exposes GOP Inaction Amid Democrat-Driven Legal Battles

0:00

Former President Donald Trump was found guilty on Thursday by a jury of 12 in New York City—a Democrat-heavy area—for an indefinable crime initiated by a district attorney linked to George Soros and supervised by a Biden supporter. The verdict not only underscores Democrat-driven lawfare but also highlights the ineffectiveness of Republican “leaders.”

Radio host Michael Berry remarked on X that the dubious verdict in New York “probably made some Republicans in Congress so mad that they will even consider holding some hearings.”

It’s amusing until it becomes serious.

Republican leaders have mostly stayed quiet on Democrats’ anti-Trump legal maneuvers, despite holding the House and having control over several states where Biden could face charges relating to the porous border or defying the Supreme Court. Yet, Republicans chose and continue choosing inaction.

Consider the delayed and ineffective response from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“These charges never should have been brought in the first place. I expect the conviction to be overturned on appeal,” McConnell posted on X hours after the verdict’s announcement.

McConnell is correct that the charges never should have been brought. So, why did Republican leaders remain inactive for a year while Bragg planned his legal campaign?

Are we really surprised that the party, as independent journalist Julie Kelly aptly described, “stood silent for 3 years as Biden’s DOJ/FBI investigated, raided, charged, prosecuted and incarcerated 1,400+ Trump supporters for Jan. 6,” did nothing to counter the legal moves against Trump? And are still doing nothing to fight the three other legal cases?

When Bragg first indicted Trump, McConnell “refused to condemn the overt weaponization of law enforcement,” as noted by colleague Tristan Justice. McConnell’s silence was so pronounced that even CNN remarked on how “GOP leaders” stayed “silent” on the unprecedented indictment.

When McConnell finally spoke out against lawfare, he advocated for increased funding for federal law enforcement agencies, which serve as the enforcers of such lawfare.

Republicans must “start figuring out how to wield the political power you have,” as Larry O’Connor suggested.

“Democrats don’t seem to hesitate to do that, why do you?”
