In a joint statement on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) called for former President Trump’s “supporters and critics alike” to allow the federal case against Trump related to classified documents to “proceed peacefully in court.”
The top Democrats in the Senate and House made their remarks after a judge unsealed special counsel Jack Smith’s historic indictment of Trump, which revealed 37 criminal charges against him.
“No one is above the law — including Donald Trump,” they wrote. “This indictment must now play out through the legal process, without any outside political or ideological interference.”
The New York Democrats added that they “encourage Mr. Trump’s supporters and critics alike to let this case proceed peacefully in court.”
What laughable hypocrisy. First, Democrats never hold any of their own accountable to the law. Second, the only political violence in America today comes from the Left, but the Left paints conservatives as domestic terror threats, provokes them, than blames the backlash right-wing “violence.”
