Democrats Celebrate Lawfare Keeping Trump Off Campaign Trail

Democrats have a knack for saying the quiet part out loud. As former president Donald Trump finds himself locked up in a court room over sham charges brought against him by a liberal New York prosecutor, Biden supporters are praying that it gives the president a chance to campaign without competition in hopes of reigniting his floundering reelection campaign. 

That’s likely what the point of “hush money trial” was all about in the first place.

Democrats are celebrating the success of their lawfare, The Hill writes:

The president is spending several days this week covering crucial ground in Pennsylvania, including a visit to his hometown, while Trump sits through what’s expected to be a monotonous jury selection process.

“Trump lost the popular vote twice and has a lot of ground to make up from his 2020 loss. It’s going to be hard to move any swing voters while there’s wall-to-wall coverage of Trump campaigning from a courtroom,” Jim Messina, former President Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, told The Hill.

It’s unlikely Trump will get a break from the New York trial. The judge denied his request to attend historic Supreme Court arguments next week in D.C., opened the door to the trial being five days a week if it falls behind and even punted a decision on whether to let Trump attend his youngest son’s high school graduation.

“First, for anyone who was starting to feel nostalgic for the past, the daily courtroom news will remind them how exhausting it was to live through the never-ending drama of a Trump presidency and why they voted for normalcy in 2020,” said Democratic communications strategist Katie Grant Drew.

Alvin Bragg’s charges against Trump have been slammed by all sides of the political spectrum. New Conservative Post wrote a year ago when the indictments dropped that “it’s not often that liberals like The Washington Post‘s Ruth Marcus and Vox‘s Ian Millhiser, Never Trumpers like National Review‘s Andrew McCarthy and Senator Mitt Romney, and Donald Trump himself all agree on something. But, that’s exactly what happened following District Attorney Alvin Brigg’s flimsy indictment of the former president.”

Trump faces 34 felony counts of “falsifying business records for allegedly disguising hush money payments issued to porn star Stormy Daniels. He has pleaded not guilty.

On his way into the Manhattan courthouse Monday morning, he said without evidence that the trial is ‘political persecution’ and ‘an assault on America.,” reported USA Today.

The trial is expected to keep Trump locked away from the campaign trail for six to eight weeks.
