Trump says an “establishment hack” was appointed to give Biden “white glove treatment,” while he is being “persecuted” by a “Trump-deranged person .. When I return to the WH, we will end the era of partisan witch hunts.” pic.twitter.com/qZzGwSOv70— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) January 19, 2023
If elected President again, Trump probably would go after a few Democrats, ones which he finds threatening or particularly annoying. But his prime motivation for conducting witch hunts, or completely baseless investigations, probably would not be partisan. He has told us as much:
Trump has a solution to the leak of the Supreme Court brief, which is not a crime. pic.twitter.com/Y0WQrKajRB— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) January 19, 2023
How about preventative detention for exercising freedom of the press? Take it away, Mr. ex-President!
Given the fact that the brief leak is not a crime, just an ethical violation if it was a lawyer, this statement is illegal, unconstitutional, and fascist. pic.twitter.com/xzN2T5jIf3— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) January 19, 2023
On a positive note, Mr. Trump is not Matt Gaetz, who suggests Democrats staged the document crisis to get a "younger crop of candidates engaged in the next presidential race." On a negative note, a President Donald Trump evidently would do whatever he could to get around that pesky First Amendment.
