Rep. Smith Blasts Trump’s Conviction: “Justice Has Been Exploited”

Rep. Chris Smith today issued the following statement on the New York v. Trump verdict:

“Today’s wrongful conviction of President Trump—prosecuted by an absolutely biased Democrat district attorney and presided over by an equally politicized judge—tells all Americans and the world that justice in America can and today has been exploited in an attempt to destroy a political opponent. This blatant abuse of power begs the question: is this the harbinger of judicial dirty tricks and an expanded use of unethical legal tactics to defeat a political opponent?

It’s outrageous and disgraceful and parallels what happens in countries like Nicaragua, where Daniel Ortega jailed all of his presidential opponents on bogus charges.

Has President Biden or his Justice Department been complicit in any way in this political witch-hunt?

On appeal, however, I am confident this egregiously flawed verdict will be overturned, but not before the November election—precisely what the architects of this eleventh hour abuse of power are hoping for.”
