Hollywood legend James Woods broke his silence over the stunning indictment of former President Dinald TRump and humiliated Merrick Garland and the entire Department of Justice.
Woods said simply: “Breaking: The President of Russia just had the opposition leader arrested after a seven-year campaign of harassment. Oh, wait…”
Alan Dershowitz agreed with Woods. He said: “If this indictment is as weak as it appears to be, from what has been disclosed so far, it may be the most dangerous indictment in political history.
“As everybody knows it’s the first time that a man who is the leading candidate against the incumbent president has been indicted by the incumbent administration in an effort to prevent him from running.
“It’s an extraordinarily dangerous indictment, potentially dangerous to the rule of law, dangerous to the neutral application of criminal justice, and dangerous to establishing a precedent that each side will weaponize the criminal justice system against their political opponents.
“That’s not America.”
“For the first time in American history, the leading candidate to defeat the incumbent president has been indicted by the incumbent’s Justice Department.
“Former President Donald Trump has been indicted by a federal grand jury for illegally retaining classified government documents and obstructing justice.
“This is a momentous occasion, and not only for President Trump. This moment portends a massive change in the norms of this nation that all Americans who care about the neutral rule of law should pay close attention to, for it raises the specter of the partisan weaponization of the criminal justice system—not just by the Democrats targeting Trump but by Republicans who will certainly retaliate when they regain control of the criminal charging process.
“How do we know this is about political retribution, not the rule of law? Look at the case. One would expect that such an unprecedented criminal prosecution would be the strongest one in political history.
“And yet, what information we do have suggests a weak case that would never have been brought if it wasn’t being brought against Donald Trump.
“Indeed, in my book Get Trump, I predicted that Trump would be indicted. But even writing a book about the massive attacks President Trump sustained from his political adversaries, I could not have imagined that the DOJ would suffice with a charge as meager as the mere possession of classified documents.
“I thought they would go after Trump over some process crime growing out of the investigation. I assumed that before proceeding, they would develop a far stronger case—certainly stronger than the extraordinarily weak case put forward by District Attorney Alvin Bragg in Manhattan.
“It appears that I was wrong. I gave them too much credit.
“The indictment has yet to be unsealed, and there is still a slim possibility that there is a smoking gun, as there was in the obstruction cases against Richard Nixon that led his Republican colleagues to demand his resignation.
“We will know better when the seven-count indictment is made public, presumably on Tuesday.
“But based on what we know now, this does not seem like a strong case, especially if it is based on the Espionage Act of 1917, as a charge of illegally retaining documents is,” he wrote.
