U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) recently argued that President Joe Biden is looking to "give Donald Trump a death sentence for documents."
Mace made the remark during an appearance on the Fox News Channel's Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo.
The topic of conversation was the recent indictment of former President Donald Trump by Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ). Trump stands accused of 37 crimes in relation to his possession of classified materials.
Significantly, the indictment is the first time in U.S. history that the DOJ of a sitting president brought an indictment against that sitting president's chief political opponent.
Also significant is that Trump was indicted on the same day that FBI Director Christopher Wary decided to finally give Congress access to the document that describes an alleged bribery scheme involving Biden and a foreign national. Many have argued that this is no coincidence - that the indictment was to distract from Biden's alleged wrongdoing.
In case you missed it, lawmakers who saw the document - which comes from a source whom the FBI has used for years and has described as "highly credible - say that it alleges that Biden, back when he was vice president, received $5 million after pulling strings to get the prosecutor fired who was investigating Burisma - the Ukrainian energy company where Biden's son - Hunter Biden - was working.
Bartiromo began by asking Mace about the connection between the Trump indictment and Wray's decision to finally allow Congress to view the Biden bribery scheme document.
"That is right and honestly, no one’s made the connection yet either, Maria," Mace said.
The congresswoman continued:
But when we got access to the suspicious activity reports, the day we got access to the SARS reports, [Manhattan District Attorney] Alvin Bragg indicted Trump in New York. The day that we got access to this 1023 form showing bribery between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden in Ukraine, they indict Donald Trump again. Every time the Oversight Committee has evidence of corruption, bribery, money laundering on the Biden family, they indict Donald Trump.
There certainly does seem to be a pattern here.
Mace went on to argue that, "whether you agree with Donald Trump politically or not, most of America sees this for what it is, weaponizing the executive branch to take out political enemies."
Mace added, "And look, Joe Biden wants to give Donald Trump a death sentence for documents. He’s facing hundreds of years for mishandling documents, and they want him to die in jail. And yet, Hillary Clinton is standing free today."
Mace, here, is referring to the fact that Hillary Clinton was not prosecuted despite the fact that she illegally kept confidential materials on a private server and destroyed them. And, Mace is also referring to the fact that if Trump is found guilty of all charges that Biden's DOJ has brought against him he could be sentenced to a maximum of 400 years of imprisonment.
Mace is right on the money here.
