Former President Donald Trump's attorney, Joe Tacopina, claimed during an interview with CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday that the only reason Trump is being indicted is because he is running for president in 2024.
Anchor Dana Bash asked Tacopina, "I’m going to speak to Michael Cohen’s attorney next. He says that there is actual evidence that your client, the former president, participated in falsifying business records. Have you seen any such evidence?"
Tacopina responded by saying, "Yeah. I know there’s no such evidence. I mean, look, Michael Cohen’s lawyers spitting Michael Cohen’s side. Michael Cohen is a pathological convicted liar. We are going to take the indictment, evaluate all our legal options and pursue everyone most vigorously. This is a case of political persecution. Had he not been running for office right now for the office of the presidency, which, by the way, the polls have shown since this has been announced, his numbers have gone up significantly. Had he not been running for presidency; he would not have been indicted."
Democrats are terrified that Americans will vote for Trump in 2024 after four years of disasters caused by President Joe Biden.
The indictment of Trump appears to be the last resort move by the left to try and stop Trump from even getting to compete with Joe Biden.
The left knows that Joe Biden is a massive liability and will do anything to prevent Donald Trump from stepping foot inside the White House. If it means destroying our legal system, the left is willing to make that sacrifice.
