New in PJ Media:
When you’ve lost Andrew Cuomo, you really should take it as a sign that you’ve gone way too far. But there was the randy former New York governor on Saturday, as Democrat as Democrats can possibly be, charging that the ongoing prosecutions-in-search-of-a-crime directed against the America-First president were nothing less than a “cancer in our body politic.” Who does Andrew Cuomo think he is? Roger Stone?
Cuomo knows a thing or two about prosecutions: he was attorney general of the state of New York from 2007 to 2010. On Saturday, he declared that the investigations of Trump were politically motivated, which the whole world knows but which Democrats have up to now been steadfast in refusing to admit. Cuomo decisively broke ranks, declaring that “the expression, for prosecutors, is you can indict a ham sandwich because the prosecutor controls the entire indictment process.”
The ham sandwich in this case is Trump, who could still be indicted next week on charges that he paid $130,000 to a prostitute, Stormy Daniels, in order to buy her silence over their liaison, which both Trump and Stormy Daniels now deny ever actually happened. Even before Daniels’ denial came to light, the New York Times admitted that the entire case was a far-fetched basis for handcuffing a former president and subjecting him to a perp walk, conceding in a March 9 article that “hush money is not inherently illegal.”
Daniels’ letter was just one of the many ways in which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump has unraveled in recent days and been revealed as a banana republic witch hunt. Speaking at a campaign rally in Waco Saturday, Trump himself said, “I think they’ve already dropped the case. It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing.” However, the grand jury in this case is set to reconvene Monday and could still indict Trump.
Cuomo, however, wondered why Bragg was “putting such an emphasis” on getting Trump, as if it weren’t obvious, and warned against politicizing a legal case in order to discredit a presidential candidate: “You have a cynical public, they don’t believe anyone. And when you start to see these prosecutors bringing political cases, it just affirms everybody’s cynicism.” Could this be the first time that patriots in large numbers find themselves agreeing with Andrew Cuomo? That’s likely.
Cuomo added, “I don’t believe any of this. I don’t believe a Democratic prosecutor just happens to be attacking a Republican.” Neither do I, Andy, but I never thought I’d see a Democrat, much less a leader of the far-Left, saying it. “I think it’s all politics. It feeds the cynicism, and that’s the cancer in our body politic right now.” Indeed.
There is more. Read the rest here.
