This week Donald Trump was indicted after rumors of felony charges started to circulate.

The former President and his allies blasted the Democrat prosecutor for leaking details of the case to the Left’s media allies.

And Donald Trump turned red with rage after Bill Barr’s stunning reaction to his indictment.

Barr says Democrats are in a “no-lose situation” amid Trump indictment

Former Attorney General Bill Barr has made a lot of enemies since his time working for the Trump White House.

He departed the administration shortly after the 2020 election, and went on to blast Trump’s allegations about the Presidency being “stolen” from him.

Now, Barr is weighing in on what he called a “no-lose situation for the Democrats,” adding that the situation is “going to be damaging… to the Republican Party.”

During an appearance at the National Review Institute’s “Ideas Summit,” Barr explained that he believes Democrats’ goal is to “focus” on Trump to antagonize Republican voters into making him their Presidential nominee for a third time.

“I think the impetus is really to help Trump get the nomination, focus the attention on him for two years, have this thing swirling around, plus whatever else comes, which I think will be damaging to whoever gets the nomination,” Barr explained.

He further assessed that the case would “hurt” the political environment surrounding the 2024 election cycle.

This is the “archetypal abuse of the prosecutorial function”

The former Attorney General went on to say that the “weak” case against Trump was nothing more than prosecutorial abuse.

He said that it will ultimately lead to a particularly contentious Republican Primary, and an even more controversial General Election.

“Judging from the news reports, it’s the archetypal abuse of the prosecutorial function to engage in a political hit job,” Barr said.

Barr warned that this “disgrace” would sow discord amongst politicians, and divide the country even further.

He even went so far as to say that Manhattan Democrat District Attorney Alvin Bragg doesn’t even have a case, and that he is simply “bootstrapping” felony charges against Trump.

He called the move “outrageous,” and said it would take years for the country to recover from the unprecedented move.

He went on to explain that the federal government didn’t even see reasonable cause to prosecute the alleged “hush money” payments as a campaign violation.

Fraud will be difficult for the Manhattan DA to prove

The charges against Trump are based on alleged payments the then-candidate for President made to porn star Stormy Daniels in order to keep her from discussing an affair.

Barr said that even the Department of Justice wouldn’t “support this interpretation of the statute.”

“It wasn’t done because of the election,” Barr explained. “It was done to protect Trump’s reputation.”

He added that there’s not enough evidence to suggest that falsification occurred, and if it did, it’s not necessarily considered “fraud.”

“There still has to be some victim of fraud… some value is somehow taken away from and benefited, you know, the perpetrator,” Barr said, adding that he doesn’t “see an explanation to that anywhere.”

Barr said that he thought the “whole thing is a very weak case” and that it was founded on faulty legal theory.

If convicted, Donald Trump will likely appeal, and the case could move all the way up to the Supreme Court.
