Trump Verdict Is Indictment Of GOP Leaders Who Can’t Be Bothered To Resist Republic-Wrecking Lawfare

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

Former President Donald Trump was convicted Thursday by 12 jurors in Democrat-dominated New York City for a crime no one can articulate that was brought by a George Soros-funded district attorney and overseen by a Biden donor. But the conviction wasn’t just an indictment of Democrat lawfare — it was an indictment of how feckless Republican “leaders” have become.

As radio host Michael Berry quipped in a post on X, the sham verdict in New York “probably made some Republicans in Congress so mad that they will even consider holding some hearings.”

It’s funny until it’s not.

Republican leaders have remained largely tight-lipped about Democrats’ anti-Trump lawfare despite holding the House and control of several states in which Biden surely could be brought up on charges pertaining to the porous border or defying the Supreme Court. But Republicans did and continue to do nothing.

Take, for example, the belated and worthless response from Senate Minority “Leader” Mitch McConnell.

“These charges never should have been brought in the first place. I expect the conviction to be overturned on appeal,” McConnell posted to X hours after the verdict was delivered.

McConnell is right that the charges never should have been brought. So then why did Republican leaders sit on their hands for a year while Bragg devised his lawfare campaign?

But are we really surprised that the party that, as independent journalist Julie Kelly put it, “stood silent for 3 years as Biden’s DOJ/FBI investigated, raided, charged, prosecuted and incarcerated 1,400+ Trump supporters for Jan. 6,” did nothing to combat the lawfare against Trump? And are still doing nothing to combat the three other lawfare cases?

When Bragg first indicted Trump, McConnell “refused to condemn the overt weaponization of law enforcement,” as my colleague Tristan Justice pointed out. McConnell’s muteness was so deafening that even CNN couldn’t help but acknowledge how “GOP leaders” were “silent” on the unprecedented indictment.

It is time for Republicans to “start figuring out how to wield the political power you have,” as Larry O’Connor said.

“Democrats don’t seem to hesitate to do that, why do you?”
