Donald Trump just became the first U.S. president to be indicted by the Department of Justice on federal charges, and while many on the left are rejoicing, others see this as a purely political move.
The former president is facing seven counts related to his storage of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home.
“Some will say,” Pat Gray begins, “Donald Trump was indicted simply because of political reasons and, uh, wow — it’s true.”
He believes that if Donald Trump had been leaking top secret documents to the public like the kid who had leaked information on the Ukrainian war to his friends on Discord, it would be a “real problem.”
However, he also believes that the motivation in the kid's case was attempting to be cool among his friend group.
“I don’t know that this indicates that he should be in prison for the rest of his life, but I could understand why that would be a big story.”
“But, what basically is going on here is Donald Trump was president of the United States. He could see any of these documents. He had all of this information already,” Stu adds.
And no one is accusing Trump of selling the documents to foreign nationals or using them to launch a secret war in another country.
Rather, Stu says that “what they are accusing him of is not giving them back in a timely fashion when they wanted them.”
“What did he put it in the wrong filing cabinet? This is what we’re going to bring a president down on?”
Gray believes the indictment truly is politically motivated.
“They’re trying desperately to stop him from running for president,” he says.
“At this point, I think they’re pretty afraid that he’ll beat them,” Gray adds.
