Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned that if Democratic Party succeeds in indicting President Donald Trump, it will mark the end of America’s justice system.
Trump faces charges relating to an alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels and is accused of paying g $130,000 in ‘hush money’ to disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen just before the 2016 Presidential Election.
Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison in 2018 for campaign finance violations and tax evasion, ad lying to Congress.
Despite Cohen’s testimony, federal prosecutors for the Southern District of New York decided not to charge Trump at the time.
The investigation into the case was closed in 2021.
However, radical left Democrat and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg brought the case back to life, vowing to indict Trump and imprison him, one of his campaign promises.
While Bragg embarks on a politically motivated attack on Trump, he also allows violent criminals to terrorize New York City.
There is also the real possibility that Bragg is working for the Biden Department of Justice to drain Trump on donors and smear him ahead of the 2024 presidential race.
The House Judiciary Committee is demanding that Bragg submit the documents and testimony he is using to indict Trump.
Carlson went on to warn America that Trump’s potential indictment edges the country closer t the of America’s justice system.
If the Democratic Party succeeds in indicting Trump, Carlson warned, they will have succeeded in subverting the will of the American people, something that happens in third-world banana republics.
Below is a transcript of Carlson’s monologue:
If the Democratic Party is allowed to do this, allowed to crush the presidential front-runner, the main threat to their power, with a bogus criminal case, where does that leave us? We’re done because that precedent will live forever and voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election. It’s remarkable when you think about it.
After all the yelling from permanent Washington about January 6 and how it was a threat to our democratic norms and the peaceful transfer of power, they’ve decided to completely short circuit our democratic norms, not to mention the peaceful transfer of power using the courts and prosecutors.
What happens if they get away with this? No one seems to be thinking this through. Everyone’s all spun up, but what happens if they get away with this?
If they use the Justice Department in full view of everyone to settle a political score and to keep the White House just to take a guy out of the race who seems to be doing fairly well. We’ll destroy the justice system and that’s not a small thing. A functioning justice system has kept this country peaceful for hundreds of years.
The purpose of a justice system is to administer justice so that citizens don’t have to do it themselves. You outsource that duty to the government. But what happens when you take that away, when there is no justice system?
What happens when the Department of Justice decides that its goal is not justice, but protecting the ruling class at all costs? Think about that. People are still going to demand justice. The desire for justice is an inherent human desire. We are born with it. But if there’s no neutral place to do it, some people will decide they’re going to have to do it themselves.
Now, we don’t know exactly what that’s going to look like, but we can say for certain it’s going to be really ugly.
So, they hate Donald Trump. Fine, but they don’t get to destroy America’s justice system because they do. We would never recover from that.
