As the former guy has been indicted and is now preparing for yet another trial – this time on probably the most serious charges he’s facing yet, he’s also awaiting what could be a sizable case in Georgia, that could also implicate a number of prominent Republicans as well.
As this is happening, a whole lot of right-wing pundits and politicians are desperately trying to spin it as a political attack. This is of course, ridiculous, as just about every witness lined up against Donald Trump so far is a Republican – many from his own administration, who are now finding themselves in the undesirable position of having to testify against their old boss.
Their other strategy has been to push a story about President Biden – though what exactly he’s being accused of isn’t really quite clear, and hope that it somehow gains traction through the media in a sort of “both sides are just as bad” way.
This is the real reason right-wingers are melting down as Donald Trump is facing legal trouble: Their constant investigations of Democrats like Hillary Clinton, President Obama or the Bidens are never really meant to yield meaningful results – or even to actually indict anyone. They’re really just a way to waste everyone’s time and money, while also casting doubt on the legitimacy of criminal investigations.
This is precisely why everything needs to be done methodically – as much as the media wants to find out what the next step is – and it’s why this investigation actually made great strides in such a short time – it’s the real deal and Republicans are finally being held accountable for their actions.
