The Wall Street Journal editorial board claims that Democrats intended for Donald Trump’s televised trials to become a focal point of focus for his 2024 presidential campaign.
The editorial board claims the Democrats’ ultimate goal in the run-up to the 2024 election is to have an extended trial similar to that of O.J. Simpson dominate political and public debate.
Trump was recently indicted on four federal charges related to Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the event at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The editors wrote that the Democratic Party’s claim that televised court proceedings would increase public acceptance of a ruling appears unlikely, given the nature of the case and the current political climate in the United States. The Justice Department under the current President is prosecuting his primary challenger. According to the board, this is highly combustible.
Trump pleaded not guilty on Thursday to four charges related to alleged efforts by him and his associates to manipulate the 2020 presidential election.
The Wall Street Journal expressed concern that the trials, including Donald Trump, would be distressing enough without people’s desire for publicity and their reviews on the Nightly News.
Speaking of selfish publicity seekers, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and thirty-eight other Democrats in the House sent a letter to federal authorities on Friday asking for broadcasts of Trump’s federal criminal charges.
Schiff said the Conference must give fast access to accurate and honest information on these cases and their processes because of the cases’ essential national relevance to our democratic institutions and the need for transparency.
This comment is from the same guy that suppressed Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The policymaking body for the federal courts, the Judiciary Conference, has long advocated for more transparency and public access to the judicial system. Given the unprecedented scale of the claims, the leftist lawmakers stated it is difficult to conceive a situation that would be more important for televised hearings.
So far, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has indicted Trump on state counts, while Special Counsel Robert S. Smith has filed two federal indictments. Fulton County, Georgia’s district attorney Fani Willis is considering filing a fourth criminal prosecution against Donald Trump.
