The ABC talk show “The View” hosts appeared to revel in the indictment of former President Donald Trump, but soon faced a sobering reality. The case against him is weak, lacking an underlying crime, and there are serious questions regarding the statute of limitations and even the jurisdiction of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
On the day following the indictment, the hosts’ celebration was more muted. Host Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic, stating that Trump had faced justice in a Manhattan courthouse. However, her enthusiasm waned when co-host Sunny Hostin had to read a legal note from Trump’s team, in which he denied any wrongdoing and any affair with Stormy Daniels or Karen McDougal.
The future of the case against Trump and District Attorney Bragg looks uncertain. The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee is “seriously weighing” the issuance of subpoenas for Bragg and two prosecutors who resigned from his team after Trump’s indictment and arraignment. These prosecutors had resigned in 2022 when it appeared that Bragg would not indict Trump.
Their resignations, during a monthlong freeze in presenting evidence to a grand jury, suggest a lack of confidence in the case by Bragg. The New York Times reported that the inquiry’s future is in serious doubt, as Bragg had expressed doubts about proceeding with the case against Trump. Furthermore, Bragg faced roadblocks in presenting his case, as he could not get Trump Organization executives to testify against Trump.
Nevertheless, a year later, Trump was indicted by Bragg, a move that many Republicans and some Democrats believe was politically motivated rather than based on the law.
This week, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records in a Manhattan criminal court. The House Judiciary Committee is “seriously” considering issuing subpoenas for Bragg and the two former prosecutors to testify before the panel, according to a Fox News Digital source.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has staunchly defended Trump and threatened to defund any government agencies engaged in election interference. He emphasized the need to uncover the facts and pass legislation, possibly limiting funding to agencies like the DOJ and the FBI, which have exhibited egregious behavior.
Jordan also called for the government to stay out of the election process, citing the numerous instances in which Trump had been politically targeted during previous elections. In 2016, his campaign was spied on; in 2018, the Mueller investigation took place; in 2020, the Hunter Biden story was suppressed; in 2022, his home was raided 91 days before an election; and now, in 2024, the former president and top candidate, leading in every poll, has been indicted.
It is crucial that we recognize the political motivations behind these actions and question the true intentions of those pursuing weak cases against Trump. The American people deserve a fair and unbiased election process, free from interference by government agencies.
