Former Rep. Gabbard accused Biden and the Democrat “elite” of leading “political prosecution” of Donald Trump. She claimed the party is trying to drain Trump of resources and keep him off the campaign trail. In the hopes, she said, of weakening his re-election chances.
Gabbard accused her former colleagues of having “utter contempt for democracy and the rule of law.” Many pundits and legal experts have commented on the legal legitimacy of these indictments.
The Hawaiian lawmaker claimed that Democrats are scared Trump might win. And she said they are committing an “egregious abuse of power.” She said they are setting a precedent that will reduce the United States to a “banana republic.”
Gabbard’s comments echo what many Republicans have said. Her statements might resonate with moderate and independent voters who have tried to decide what to make of these indictments. At any rate, she is adding to a growing chorus of critics who have condemned these indictments and undermined the left’s narrative.
- Former Democrat Tulsi Gabbard condemned the Democrat-led indictments against Trump.
