WATCH: Greg Gutfeld Goes Scorched Earth On New Trump Indictment: ‘It’s Criminalizing Speech’


Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld pulled no punches when criticizing the Biden DOJ’s latest indictment against former President Donald Trump during Tuesday’s episode of The Five. The longtime Fox News contributor did not downplay the seriousness of the Biden Administration’s motives in bringing yet another indictment against their top political rival, though he did dismiss the flimsy legal theories employed by special counsel Jack Smith’s office.

“It’s really hard for me to take this seriously. And I don’t think any sensible American should take what’s happening very seriously, should anger them,” Gutfeld said. “But the actual charges you can’t take seriously. Their feelings masquerading as facts, their opinions trying to be passed off as crimes, it’s garbage dressed up with a legal thesaurus.”

“And it’s criminalizing speech. You have every right to think an election might be rigged or fixed. I mean is every institution perfect? I mean what if we criminalize the idea that if you said the justice system was flawed, but if we told you that you know what you’re saying the justice system is rigged, you’re going to jail,” he continued. “But that’s been the common refrain. So I think it’s amazing to me how hatred for Trump has turned the haters into what they claim to condemn.”

“These are all the things that they would have accused him of that he never did. This is why I can’t take it seriously. I have a hard time.”

The Biden DOJ’s latest indictment against former President Donald Trump includes four new felony counts, including one charge that falls under the Civil Rights Act of 1866. Charges include Obstruction of an Official Proceeding, Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding and Conspiracy Against Rights.

Between the latest indictment and the ongoing, 40+ count classified documents case, Trump faces hundreds of years in federal prison if convicted.
