Cedric Richmond, the
co-chair of President Biden’s reelection campaign recently said that Biden is
not looking to make former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles central to
his 2024 message.
In an interview with ABC
"This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz, Richmond stated: "The
president has said from the beginning that he wanted an independent Justice
Department ... so we're not going to comment. We're not going to focus on
Donald Trump's legal problems. We will let the justice system take care of what
the justice system should take care of.”
An “independent Justice
Department?” Biden’s “Justice Department” is as independent from his
administration as the Waffen-SS was from Hitler’s Nazi Party.
On the evening of August 24th, as former President Trump's
motorcade was arriving at the Fulton County, Georgia, jail for his surrender on
trumped-up charges related to his alleged attempt to overturn his alleged 2020
election loss in that state, Biden (or more likely his handlers) put out this
online and social media appeal for monetary donations: "Apropos of
nothing, I think today's a great day to give to my campaign.”
That appeal-- snarky, vile, mocking, and vaguely threatening—is
apropos of everything pertaining to the Biden administration.
the Biden administration isn’t “going to focus on Donald Trump’s legal
problems.” It created them. Of course Biden will leave it to his
Department of Injustice (DOI?) to take care of what he and his administration
want to “take care of.”
Biden is not looking to
make former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles central to his 2024 message
because his message has already been sent: he wants Trump indicted and in jail.
To Biden, it’s simple:
no Trump, no issue…and no further message required.
