Legal Scholar Supports Trump’s Claim Of ‘Weaponized’ Justice System

Former President Donald Trump and many of his supporters have long asserted that the legal challenges he is currently facing are evidence of a politically biased justice system being “weaponized” against his bid for a second term in the White House.

That argument gained even more steam in light of the Justice Department’s decision not to indict President Joe Biden for mishandling classified documents after such charges were filed against Trump.

“It was just announced that Joe Biden’s Department of Injustice will bring zero charges against crooked Joe despite the fact he willfully retained, willfully retained, undisclosed droves of ultra-classified national security documents,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said last month. “Now, that’s not what I’ve been hearing and he’s not under the Presidential Records Act, which is a big thing; I am. It’s a protective act.”

Trump went on to declare: “If Biden is not going to be charged … that’s up to them, but then I should not be charged.”

A growing number of legal experts have begun to echo Trump’s claim of a biased justice system, including George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley.

In the wake of reports that Trump was struggling to post a bond set at nearly half a billion dollars in a New York civil fraud case, Turley took a holistic look at the various court cases that are hamstringing the former president’s ability to run a cohesive campaign.

“It’s becoming increasingly difficult to deny that we have a legal system now that is being heavily distorted by politics,” the professor said. “And you cannot look at all of these cases and see blind justice; you see the opposite. “You see a justice that is being weaponized, and in many ways the Democrats fulfill the narrative of President Trump. He is now right.”

Even those who scoffed at Trump’s “witch hunt” rhetoric early on in the process, Turley reasoned, must now admit that politically motivated prosecutors “proved him to be right with this pile-on from Florida to Georgia to Washington, D.C., to New York.”

Aside from the sheer number of indictments and civil complaints against Trump, Turley argued that the “improvisational” nature of the court cases provide even more fuel for criticism.

“Now, will he have a trial before the election?” he asked. “It’s possible, but with this pile-on, it may be becoming increasingly irrelevant to voters. I think they have so damaged the image of the legal system both in the federal and state process that many voters no longer trust these cases or these courts.”
