One legal analyst, speaking last night on Fox News, drew a line between bribery allegations against President Joe Biden and the sudden indictment of former President Donald Trump in a classified documents case, which he predicted will eventually go all the way to the Supreme Court.
Mike Davis, who previously served as chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, sarcastically called the timing “coincidental” after Republicans on the House Oversight Committee unveiled details of an FBI investigation where one informant alleges the president took millions of dollars in bribes to ease the path for first son Hunter Biden to conduct business dealings in Ukraine.
“This is clearly election interference by Joe Biden. Isn’t it funny that the day Joe Biden gets caught taking $10 million from Burisma, Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland greenlights this indictment of his leading Presidential rival?” Davis asked.
Davis added that there is a path for President Trump to bring his case before the Supreme Court, arguing no legal precedent exists for such a case.
“Trump could try to move to dismiss the indictment, the sufficiency of the indictment early on because there’s not a legal basis for the indictment. The Presidential Records Act, not the Espionage Act, applies. I doubt a uni-party judge is going to go along with that, and so this will probably have to get resolved by the Supreme Court… At the end of the day Trump may get elected in 2024 as a convicted felon who the Supreme Court has to reverse his conviction because it’s a bogus fiction,” Davis added.
The Justice Department has dealt Trump seven charges including obstruction of justice which the former president will answer for Tuesday when arraigned in Miami. The news was broken by Trump himself shortly after federal prosecutors informed his legal team of their plans.
“Very sadly, we’re a nation in decline,” Trump began. “And yet, they go after a popular — a president that got more votes than any other president in the history of our country, by far. And they go after him on, a boxes hoax. Just like the ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ hoax, and all of the others, this has been going on for seven years. They can’t stop, because it’s election interference at the highest level.”
On the same day, House Republicans confirmed their intention to bring articles of impeachment against President Biden for allegations he took between $5 million and $10 million in bribes, charges that were levied by an informant speaking with the FBI going back to 2016. Asked for comment, President Biden denied the allegations, asking, “Where’s the money?”
