A columnist for the Daily Caller News Foundation is offering proof that the Democrats' multiple prosecutions of President Donald Trump are political.
It's because of the bail demanded by DA Fani Willis in the latest case, in Georgia, a case that largely tries to criminalize ordinary things like making a phone call and holding a meeting.
It is JD Foster, the former chief economist at the Office of Management and Budget and former chief economist and senior vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who wrote, "Whether you love Donald Trump and are daily festooned with MAGA paraphernalia, or despise everything about him, if you reflect on Trump’s trials you may have a real whiskey, tango, foxtrot moment."
He explained, "The problem isn’t the indictments and whether they are bogus and political or sound and prudent. The lawyers and the courts will duke it out and someday we’ll know, or at least we’ll have the best answer the system can produce. No, the issue is Trump’s bail."
He said bail is money demanded of defendants to make sure they appear for trial.
In the Fulton County case, Trump's bail was set at $200,000.
"Perhaps the Fulton County court is unaware Donald Trump is running for president of the United States, is dominating his Republican competition, and often leads his likely opponent in the general election, Joe Biden. Skip town, Donald? Biden should be so lucky," explained Foster.
"Or maybe the Fulton Country court is unaware Donald Trump may be the most recognized man on the planet. There may be an igloo in Antarctica he could hide in, but that’s about it.
"Is the court aware Trump is surrounded by a large team of Secret Service agents? Slip away unnoticed? I think not."
The goal of the bail set by Willis, he explained, is "to try to embarrass Trump further."
And that shows, he said, Willis "is far more interested in the politics and the fame than she is the law."
Foster pointed out his comments are not a defense of Trump, but they are "yet another indictment of our justice system run amok in political mud. And it is a call to American jurists to remember that the rule of law only prevails when lady justice holds the scales, blindfold securely in place."
