Op-Ed: Brace Yourself for the Anti-Trump Lawfare
As the 2024 presidential campaign heats up, the booming of anti-Trump lawfare can be heard rising over the hills. With so much coming at Donald Trump these days, it’s hard to keep track of it all. But fear not, there’s one place that’s performing this service well: Resurgence, a Substack published by Andrew Thomas.
Who is Andrew Thomas?
Thomas is a Harvard Law graduate who was twice elected Maricopa County attorney, or district attorney for the Phoenix metro area. He and Rachel Alexander, a former prosecutor, were early targets of leftist lawfare. Thomas draws from those experiences to write about Trump’s ordeal.
What is Resurgence?
Resurgence is a Substack that tracks the many attacks on Trump. Thomas has a podcast with a dedicated series, “Trump Under Siege,” that delves into the details of the lawfare. His articles on anti-Trump lawfare have been recommended by people as varied as Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, popular patriot attorney Robert Barnes, and Trump campaign attorneys Sidney Powell and John Eastman.
What are the Main Lines of Attack?
Thomas identifies five main lines of lawfare attack on Trump:
- The Stormy Daniels payment, already resulting in an indictment
- The Georgia investigation of Trump’s alleged election interference
- Three investigations controlled by special counsel Jack Smith into Trump’s conduct on J6, classified documents at Mar-a-Lago and Trump campaign solicitations after the 2020 elections
Pulling no punches, Thomas writes, “The pending pile of Trump indictments will signify as great a transformation of the American Republic as Caesar’s crossing the Rubicon meant for the Roman Republic. Once fully unleashed, the leftist lawfare targeting the preeminent critic of the ruling class will mean our republic, as bequeathed to us by the founders of this nation, will cease to exist.”
Why Aren’t These Threats Being Tracked and Analyzed More Systematically?
Obviously, this work takes a fair amount of time and analysis. But conservatives just haven’t steeled themselves for the horror show that is coming. Our republic is being destroyed by these attacks, and many a good patriot flinches from admitting just how awful the situation is for Trump and the rest of us.
