President Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, has warned that the United States will “no longer be a constitutional republic” and become unstable if Trump is sentenced over the latest charges in the Georgia election indictment.
During an interview with EpochTV’s “Crossroads,” Harrington said the public should understand “what’s really at stake here.”
Trump was charged with 13 counts in Georgia’s indictment alleging he and 18 co-defendants attempted to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.
Anti-Trump Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told reporters all the defendants listed in the indictment must voluntarily surrender in Georgia by Aug. 25 at noon.
Harrington said the latest charges against President Trump were an “insult to the rule of law.”
“You had here a corrupt district attorney and an office that filed an indictment before the grand jury had even met before they had heard witnesses before they voted,” Ms. Harrington said.
“I mean, if that doesn’t say it all, it says that this was another ‘show me the man, I’ll show you the fake crimes.'”
“And we’ll try to pin anything on President Trump, and reading through these charges; it honestly is the biggest joke and affront to the rule of law that I’ve ever seen.”
“And the big takeaway, I think, is if they can do this to President Trump—he says it all the time, ‘They’re not after me, they’re after you, I’m just standing in the way’—they can try to make it a criminal act, to send tweets to encourage people to watch public hearings, to write speeches and deliver them as a president of the United States, to be in the public square and bringing your grievances to the government,” Harrington said.
“They can do this to anyone, and they will do this to anyone. And that’s what’s really at stake here,” she added.
“Our country will no longer be a constitutional republic. There’ll be just another run-of-the-mill banana republic that imprisons anyone who disagrees with the government,” she warned.
Harrington also noted “countless” individuals have challenged election results.
“The American people saw what was happening in that election. They were very concerned, they were very upset, they wanted answers, they wanted transparency, and President Trump was speaking on behalf of them,” she said.
“But he also petitioned the government for his grievances. And that is the bedrock of this nation. That is how this nation was formed. It is just a number one founding principle. And if you’re not allowed to do that, if that’s not just a crime but a conspiracy of racketeering, we’ve gone down a very different path,” she said.
“And it proves that these corrupt district attorneys, these corrupt prosecutors, and the federal government have nothing but disdain for our Constitution and the way our system is supposed to work,” Harrington added.
“This is not about President Trump. This is about our country. This is about really a corrupt system that is running this great nation into the ground, and they’re going to continue to harass anybody who is a political dissident, anyone who disagrees with the ruling class; they’re not going to stop at President Trump,” she concluded.
On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Kash Patel said Fani Willis “lied to the world.”
“She just lied to the universe, as the district attorney, your name, your stamp is on every single indictment,” Kash Patel told Fox News, referring to Fani Willis.
“You do not have those copies of indictments floating around and blame the clerical system and the judicial officer in the clerk’s office for a mishap,” Patel said.
“She just said she has no idea how that indictment was presented and posted online. She just lied to the world,” Patel continued.
