New Questions Raised About Joe Biden's 2022 Remarks Regarding the Prosecution of Donald Trump


Share post:

Joe Biden has said in the past that he isn’t interfering with or involved in the prosecutorial efforts against his campaign opponent, former President Donald Trump.

In June 2022 Biden said, “I never once, not one single time,” suggested to the Justice Department anything about bringing charges. “I’m honest,” he said, pounding the podium. He sounded a lot like Bill Clinton in his infamous Monica Lewinsky speech, and we know how honest that was. It also sounded a lot like the fervor of Biden’s repeated remarks denying that he had ever spoken to his son about his business, which we know is not the case.

But now some are calling out that statement from Biden and raising questions about what Biden allegedly said about prosecuting Trump in a couple of old New York Times stories.

Kayleigh McEnany raised the issue of what a Times article published on March 31, 2022, said about Biden.

But he does have opinions. In the past, Mr. Biden privately told his close circle of advisers that Mr. Trump posed a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted for his role in the events of Jan. 6, according to two people familiar with his comments. He also told confidants that he wanted Attorney General Merrick B. Garland to stop acting like a ponderous judge and to take decisive action.

The Times also wrote this in another article on April 2, 2022.

The attorney general’s deliberative approach has come to frustrate Democratic allies of the White House and, at times, President Biden himself. As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments. And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events of Jan. 6.

It sounds like they knew that their earlier article would raise natural questions, so they stuck in “has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland.” The follow-up question would be: Has he communicated this frustration indirectly or through anyone else in any way? The fact that he’s mentioning it at all to his staff when he should be saying nothing and staying out of it is concerning. And one has to wonder if the people who leaked that nugget to the Times may perhaps also have been concerned about it, which is maybe why they leaked it.

Then we see a subsequent indictment from Special Counsel Jack Smith that is weak on the face of it, that looks like it’s going after Trump about his free speech regarding the election. Multiple legal experts have pointed out how flawed the indictment is.

Some are also questioning these comments from Biden from November.

All of this naturally raises questions about what is going on here. Why do we suddenly see a flurry of indictments and actions all as polls are showing Trump is not only the leading GOP candidate but in some cases, is leading Biden? Why do the recent indictments/actions against Trump seem to be announced coincidentally after something breaks big in the Biden foreign business dealings scandal?

Chalk up still more things that Congress is going to have to look into.

Unfortunately, we can’t rely upon Joe Biden’s assertions that he’s “honest,” as he’s shown time and again, that is not the case.
