In multiple blistering critiques of the ongoing persecution against former President Donald Trump, commentator and constitutional lawyer Mark Levin gave his own indictment in the handling of the case on Fox.
Levin pointed out the involvement of political bias, misuse of the justice system, and an unprecedented attack on a former president during appearances on the network Thursday and Friday.
He opened his remarks yesterday by highlighting the potential severity of the consequences facing Trump. He explained the indictment represents a “disgusting mark on American history for the future to come,” while attributing it to the actions of “bandits in the White House by the Democrat Party that don’t play fair anymore.”
Levin voiced his concerns about the current administration’s alleged misuse of the Department of Justice and the FBI to achieve their political ambitions, referring to Attorney General Merrick Garland as a “mob lawyer.” He accused the Democratic Party of seeking one-party rule and leveraging the justice system to that end.
The Presidential Records Act, under which Trump is allegedly being charged, is not a criminal statute, nor was it intended to be, according to Levin, as he suggested a misuse of law could be in play in the Trump case.
“What did he do with the documents? Did he sell them to the enemy? No! That’s why we have an Espionage Act, not the trick of a president. What did he do? Did he burn them all? No! The government has all the documents back.”
Then, Friday, Levin blew a massive hole in the case in another monologue on Martha MacCallum’s show with one simple question: “Was anything destroyed?”
The charges brought against Trump are based on a “document case,” where the former President could face extensive prison time over issues related to document retention. Levin questioned the logic of this, asking, “Is this some kind of a sick joke on the American people?”
Many have criticized the legal technicalities that have been used to prosecute Trump. Levin agrees the charges brought against the former president are essentially process crimes that have been amplified due to the politicized nature of the investigation.
“The idea that this man is not under a criminal investigation and that they criminalized that damn document case to go after Donald Trump is sickening.”
The lawyer also criticized the handling of the case by the prosecutor, whom he accused of expanding statutes and consequently undermining the country. Levin emphasized that the decision to indict Trump was made by the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, and suggested that it was intended to interfere in the election.
Levin’s comments underscore a deep-seated concern about what he views as a politically motivated and biased attack on a former president, arguing that it represents a disturbing trend in American politics and the justice system. He concluded with a call to action, urging Americans not to be deceived by biased media outlets and to recognize the ongoing “war on Trump” as a war on the Republican Party and, by extension, the Republic itself.
