Trump Vows To Prosecute Biden Family If Re-elected

( – If nothing else, the years from January 2017 through January 2021 showed the world that Democrats, neoconservatives, and RiNOs (Republicans in Name Only) — along with their Left-leaning media partners — feared and loathed then-President Donald Trump and that they were more than willing to… let’s call it massage any truth. Now that he’s all but assured to be taking on President Joe Biden in the 2024 election and is leading him in many polls, a recently published article by Time Magazine could be viewed as a reversion to the fearmongering of old.

Linguistic Gymnastics

Eric Cortellessa interviewed Trump for more than an hour in person at his Mar-a-Lago home and then had a 20-minute follow-up talk via telephone; in fairness to the interviewer, the former president will ignore attempts to go to the next question until he has made what he feels is a complete answer to the current one. That said, much of what was published takes what the available transcript shows and shades it a bit blue for Time’s target audience.

Cortellessa wrote that Trump has “vowed [through a] special prosecutor to go after Biden” for potential crimes in office solely based on how the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) rules on his claims of presidential immunity as they relate to the criminal prosecutions he is currently facing. The transcript, however, shows the president responded that he believes that the country’s chief executive should have that protection, including Biden, but that should the SCOTUS decision to go the other way, that could happen to the current president but would “probably [have] nothing to do with me.”

Other Discrepancies

When it comes to one of the pet peeves for Liberals, abortion, Cortellessa made every attempt that he could during the interview to get Trump to commit to vetoing any legislation for placing federal restrictions on the practice since the end of Roe v. Wade that, he opines, had given women a “constitutional right to an abortion.” The former president made two arguments against that notion, the first being that when SCOTUS undid the court case in question they did not ban the procedure, they merely decided that it was up to each state to regulate it. His second point was that unless the Republicans could get to 60 votes in the US Senate (the number needed to end a filibuster), he believes it will never become an issue.

Cortellessa listed his grievances against the former POTUS in his opening paragraph including the potential of pardons “for every one of his supporters” who were in the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021. Trump clarified that he would not do that for people who had acted in a “bad or evil” way, but noted that many of those put on trial were actually escorted by and talking with police.

The article also claims that his administration would be filled with “acolytes who back his false assertion that the 2020 election was stolen.” Cortellessa once again used the tried-and-true hostile tactic of interrupting his interviewee with different versions of the question but the only one he posed to the president about any kind of “litmus test” for employment was about the Republican National Committee (RNC).

The strange sound that one might hear is likely just ACTUAL journalists like Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite spinning in their graves.
