Biden deals another blow to primary rival with new Trump indictment.

Former President Donald Trump Indicted on Federal Charges

Former President Donald Trump‍ was indicted Tuesday based on four federal charges brought ‍by corrupt Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into Jan. 6. The charges include ⁣conspiracy to‍ defraud ⁣the United States, conspiracy to obstruct⁤ an official proceeding, obstruction of and an​ attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and ⁣conspiracy against rights.

Here is a flashback to Trump on Jan. 6, 2021, when he allegedly incited an ‍insurrection ⁣by telling people to “peacefully‍ and patriotically make [their] voices heard.”

“As ⁢you know, I did nothing wrong. ‍It’s well-documented that I told Americans⁣ to act ‘PEACEFULLY’‌ and discouraged⁣ the use of any violence,” Trump wrote in a statement after the indictment announcement. “This is nothing but an egregious act of Election Interference and a final act of desperation from Crooked Joe as he ‌crashes in‌ the polls.”

Unprecedented Abuse of Power

Last week, Special Counsel Jack​ Smith added ‍three more charges against Trump for his alleged‍ mishandling of ⁤classified​ documents. Notably, Smith ‌turned a blind eye ‍to the Biden‌ family’s corruption as head of the Department of Justice’s (DOJ)‌ public ⁤integrity ⁢section‌ during the Obama administration.

This is the third indictment President Joe ⁢Biden’s ⁣Department of Justice has levied against his⁤ primary political⁤ opponent, marking an unprecedented abuse of power usually only seen in banana republics. Biden’s actions are a ⁢severe departure from the “unity” messaging‍ he ran on ahead of the 2020 election.‍ During a 2020 NPR interview, Biden ‌ said that prosecuting Trump, his chief​ political rival, ‌would “not [be] very… good for democracy…”

Selective​ Prosecution

Fast forward to this year when The New York Times reported ​that Biden was “frustrated” with U.S.⁣ Attorney⁤ General Merrick Garland for not prosecuting Trump ‌yet. The Times wrote that the president “wanted⁢ Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous ​judge and more like a prosecutor who⁢ is willing to take decisive action over⁣ the events of Jan. 6.”

The indictment comes only⁤ a​ day after ​Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Devon Archer,‍ testified that Biden‍ was on more than 20 calls with his son Hunter and Hunter’s business partners, who ‍were paying for access to the Biden family.

Similarly, Trump was indicted for his alleged ⁣”mishandling” of classified documents a day after ⁣Congressional Republicans released‌ a declassified FBI document ‍in which a confidential human source ‍alleged that Joe and Hunter Biden ‌took ​a $10 million bribe from Burisma⁤ to fire the Ukrainian​ prosecutor ‍investigating the energy company.

“The entire Biden Administration ‍knows that I’m​ the ONLY candidate who would defeat Crooked Joe in a free and⁣ fair election,” said Trump. “If these illegal ⁣persecutions​ succeed, if they’re allowed ⁢to set fire to the law, then ‍it will not stop with me.”
