There has been a singular, resounding theme that has permeated the Biden administration’s every move since January 2021: a seething, obsessive hatred for Donald J. Trump.
In the eight years of investigations and political witch hunts that have attacked the 45th president’s personal and business life, our nation’s weaponized levers of justice have ceaselessly thrown numerous allegations into an echoing void.
No allegation has managed to stick, but today’s media cycle seems to have become the new courtroom. For years, mainstream outlets have considered Trump guilty until proven innocent, taking giddy satisfaction in the un-American persecution of a duly elected president of the United States.
So far, President Trump has remained an untouchable and indispensable American champion. “They have closely studied 11,000,000 pages of documents, financial records and tax returns, some gotten illegally, billions of dollars’ worth of deals and transactions, and they’ve got NOTHING,” Trump said in a recent video.
Indeed, even after a shockingly over-the-top 34 felony counts of “falsifying” business records were charged to Trump in April at a Manhattan arraignment, the unsealed accusations have highlighted the shaky and desperate lengths that his enemies have gone to in their attempt to accomplish one goal: stop him from running for office in 2024.
The persecution of Donald J. Trump began when he announced a bid for the presidency in 2015, but the Biden regime has only kicked the political attacks into high gear.
Witch Hunt One: Manhattan
Right now, President Trump is embroiled in five major investigations. Oddly, they seem to have hit all at once, beginning with the president’s early April arraignment after a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict him. Incredibly, the basis for the case rests on “hush money” payments issued by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whom the president has facetiously nicknamed “Horseface.”
In late March, Trump shared a statement signed by Daniels in 2018 on Truth Social, where she emphatically denied having an affair with the president. “The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 2011, 2016, 2017, and now again in 2018,” the letter read. “I am not denying this affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.”
Newsweek reported that New York’s Criminal Procedure Law determined that the statute of limitations for felonies was five years. It is important to note that the charges against President Trump in this case are each noted to have allegedly taken place in 2017 – six years ago.
Witch Hunt Two: Letitia James
Just one week after Trump’s arraignment, he was deposed for a reported seven hours in New York again in a civil suit brought forth by New York State Attorney General and verified Trump-hater Letitia James.
“An interesting day spent with the Attorney General and her representatives,” Trump wrote on Truth Social following the deposition. “I strongly made my ‘points,’ they are IRREFUTABLE, and it is a case that should not go forward. My company and overall value is actually far stronger and higher than shown in the so-called Financial Statement.”
James openly integrated her distaste for Trump into her campaign for attorney general, vowing to “be a real pain in the ass,” RSBN reported.
The Trump campaign further scorched James in a searing message, stating, “Letitia James is a Soros-funded Democrat attorney general, who made clear that ‘getting Trump’ was the motivating force behind her campaign. On the campaign trail, James promised to start an illegal and unconstitutional witch-hunt against President Trump, ‘I look forward to going into the Office of Attorney General every day, suing him. . . and then going home!’”
Witch Hunt Three: E. Jean Carroll
A fourth case is slated to begin next week – also in New York – as writer E. Jean Carroll will bring forth her allegations against Trump in court after accusing the president of assaulting her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. As reported by the New York Times, Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina stated that if the president were to appear, he would request that the courthouse be locked down for security purposes.
Carroll, once a columnist for Elle Magazine, has gained significant notoriety for her allegations, which go back a whopping three decades. Per RSBN, Trump ripped Carroll last year for her accusations, stating that “she has no idea what day, what week, what month, or what decade this so-called ‘event’ supposedly took place.”
In another statement, he continued, “I don’t know this woman, have no idea who she is, other than it seems she got a picture of me many years ago, with her husband, shaking my hand on a reception line at a celebrity charity event. She completely made up a story that I met her at the doors of a crowded New York City Department Store and, within minutes, ‘swooned’ her. It is a Hoax and a lie, just like all the other Hoaxes that have been played on me for the past seven years.”
Witch Hunt Four: Georgia
The fourth major witch hunt that has targeted Trump is the ongoing Georgia investigation into phone calls that he made to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. RSBN previously reported that these calls have been the center point of a dramatic criminal investigation spearheaded by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
The subject of the phone calls between Trump and Raffensperger was focused on election integrity. Following sectional releases from the Georgia grand jury’s report on the investigation, which purportedly is looking for evidence that Trump allegedly tried to “find” more votes in Georgia to sway the election results, the president released a statement.
“The President participated in two perfect phone calls regarding election integrity in Georgia, which he is entitled to do – in fact, as President, it was President Trump’s Constitutional duty to ensure election safety, security, and integrity,” the statement asserted.
Like the three cases in New York, the Georgia investigation seems to be desperately looking for some evidence of wrongdoing to fit the parameters of their case. Unsurprisingly, they’ve come up short.
Witch Hunt Five: Mar-a-Lago
Perhaps the most egregious example of political persecution is the Biden DOJ’s weaponization of the justice system. Last year, the FBI conducted an unprecedented raid on President Trump’s private residence, Mar-a-Lago, in Florida.
The raid was supposedly launched to seize suspected “classified documents” from the president’s home. RSBN revealed in early April that a report from America First Legal (AFL) found that, despite the Biden administration’s emphatic insistence that they had nothing to do with the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home, evidence exhumed via a FOIA request contradicted their claims.
AFL stated in their report, “…new NARA records obtained through America First Legal’s investigation into the circumstances surrounding the Mar-a-Lago raid further confirmed that the FBI obtained access to these records through a ‘special access request’ from the Biden White House on behalf of the Department of Justice (DOJ).”
In other words, evidence strongly suggested that the Biden administration did indeed appear to insert themselves into the investigation in a “coordinated” effort with the DOJ to “obtain the Trump records and perhaps create a pretext for the law enforcement raid by way of a ‘special access request.’”
It is worth noting that countless classified documents belonging to former Vice President Joe Biden have been found in multiple locations, including in his private garage in Delaware, on the floor, next to his Corvette. Per RSBN, nine more boxes were taken from Biden’s attorney’s office in Boston, Massachusetts in March.
“Many of the so-called ‘documents’ that the ‘Gestapo’ took in the Raid of Mar-a-Lago, unlike the ‘No Raids of Biden,’ were merely inexpensive and very common folders with words such as ‘Presidential Reading,’ ‘Confidential,’ Classified,’ or other words stamped on the front cover,” Trump explained in February.
The special counsel assigned to Trump’s classified documents case, Jack Smith, has come under fire for his alleged impartiality due to his reported connection with the Democrat Party and a previous IRS scandal that targeted conservative nonprofits while Obama was president, RSBN found.
What could possibly go wrong?
An era of prosecution
There is no doubt that the Biden regime’s favorite pastime is targeting President Trump. A 2024 presidential bid from Trump is a threat to the tyrannical power that the administration is holding onto with a white-knuckled grip.
The political system and the justice system has been catastrophically weaponized against Trump and the American people. The stronger the America First movement becomes, the more the elite tyrants tighten their fists.
Despite this, Trump continues to fight, pushing ever onward in the face of these dogged and vicious attacks. He promised Americans last week, “With your vote and with a Republican House and a Republican Senate – and we have a really good chance at both -I will lead the great rebirth of American freedom.”
A rebirth of American freedom has never been more needed.
