We stand on the brink of war with Iran and its proxies, with a president who is barely functional mentally and physically, a Secretary of Defense who remains in the hospital being treated for prostate cancer after allegedly being missing in action for most of last week, and a Secretary of State who is wandering around the Middle East muttering about a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict when it is further away than ever.

This week the deceit from the Biden administration and the political nature of the various prosecutions against former President Trump has been further exposed. President Joe Biden has stated on several occasions that he and his team were not directing the prosecution of Trump, but the evidence indicates otherwise. New evidence also shows that the administration lied about other matters, such as that there was a written agreement with the art dealer selling Hunter Biden’s masterpieces to keep the Bidens from knowing who the purchasers were, according to Just the News.

In 2022, Biden told his inner circle, according to The New York Times, that Trump should be prosecuted for his involvement on January 6. This week we learned of prosecutors in two of the cases against him consulting with the White House counsel’s office, or someone else at the White House.

In June of last year, Biden told the press that “I have never once, not one single time, suggested to the Justice Department what they should do or not do relative to bringing a charge, or not bring a charge. I’m honest,” he finished.

But in three of the cases against Trump, White House involvement has been directly shown this week. First, in the Fanni Willis RICO case in Fulton County, Georgia, it is alleged and has not been denied that she hired a special prosecutor, Nathan Wade, who was a private attorney, with whom she was having an affair, and who was going through a divorce. From early 2022, when Wade was hired, through 2023, her office paid him nearly $700,000 taxpayer dollars. It appears that they went on luxury trips together. This would be a clear conflict of interest and a misuse of public funds.

Part of what he invoiced her office for was two full-day meetings with White House staff, including the White House counsel, in Athens, Georgia, and the other appears to have been with undisclosed White House staff in Washington in November 2022, just three days after Trump announced he was running for president again. The invoices were part of a filing by one of Trump’s 18 co-defendants in the Fulton County, Georgia RICO case, who is seeking to have his case thrown out over this alleged conflict of interest.

Willis’ case against Trump and his co-defendants depends on the notion that Trump knew he had lost the election but chose to get all of these people together in a criminal conspiracy to overturn the results. Thus, if Trump really believes, as do millions of Americans, that the election was rigged and stolen in a number of ways, then he wasn’t trying to overturn a duly won election but rather was challenging results that he believed were wrongly and corruptly achieved.

Another case, this one a civil case, not criminal, is the one Trump was in court in New York for this week where he was found liable last September for fraud, without a trial, for allegedly falsifying the values of properties that he used to get bank loans. The state is trying to fine Trump and his business for $370 million, though the facts clearly indicate that this whole case has no merit. In the process, New York Attorney General Letitia James visited the White House three times, as the White House visitor logs show, more evidence of Biden administration involvement and direction of the various cases being waged against Trump.

As documented by Bloomberg News last November, and reported and analyzed by Gateway Pundit, no bank or company claimed to be defrauded, and the nature of business between real estate developers and major banks bears that out. Here is how Gateway Pundit described it:

A Deutsche Bank AG executive gave testimony that could bolster Donald Trump’s defense in his civil fraud trial, telling a New York judge that prospective clients can get loans even after reporting a net worth far higher than the lender’s own calculations.” Bloomberg reported in November. 

“David Williams, who worked on at least one of three loans Deutsche Bank made to Trump in the years before he was elected president, testified Tuesday that it’s “atypical, but not entirely unusual” for the bank to cut a client’s stated asset value by 50% and approve a loan anyway, as it did with Trump,” Bloomberg reported. 

Williams testified that Trump’s stated assets are merely an opinion and a difference of opinion in asset values does not disqualify the potential borrower from a loan. 

“It’s just a difference of opinion,” Williams said, according to Bloomberg. 

Trump’s defense attorney argued that Deutsche Bank conducted its own due diligence and made their own decision to loan Trump money. 

And there’s more. This week Just the News reported on the Biden administration’s active involvement in the Mar-a-Lago case, being prosecuted by special counsel Jack Smith, involving Trump’s alleged retention and mishandling of classified documents:

In the summer of 2022, the Biden White House also facilitated the criminal probe by the Justice Department into his predecessor by waiving executive privilege claims and directly requesting the National Archives to provide the FBI access to documents delivered by Trump to the agency. 

The memos, reviewed by Just the News, showed that President Biden’s then-Deputy White House Counsel, Jonathan Su, worked closely with the DOJ, FBI, and National Archives after former President Trump returned 15 boxes – which contained classified materials – to the Archives and helped facilitate FBI’s access.

The DOJ’s probe into Trump over his alleged retention of classified documents turned into a special counsel investigation and charges for the former President for allegedly mishandling the documents. 

“On April 11, 2022, the White House Counsel’s Office — affirming a request from the Department of Justice supported by an FBI letterhead memorandum — formally transmitted a request that NARA provide the FBI access to the 15 boxes for its review within seven days, with the possibility that the FBI might request copies of specific documents following its review of the boxes,” National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall wrote to Trump’s lawyers. 

Special counsel Jack Smith also has indicted Trump on four counts related to his alleged efforts to “overturn” the 2020 presidential election, when in reality, Trump was attempting to challenge the results and have the elections in several states investigated.

And there is also a strong indication of the Biden administration’s involvement in the fourth indictment of Trump, which combined with the other cases has amounted to 91 felony charges, meaning he is facing more than 700 years in prison, according to the New York Post. The fourth criminal case is the so-called Stormy Daniels “hush money” case, for which Trump faces 34 counts for allegedly falsifying business records as a means of hiding the payments, a case being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

For an overview of that case, I turn to Mike Davis, of the Article 3 Project, who has served in all three branches of the federal government, including as the former Chief Counsel for Nominations to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

CNN decided to bring Davis on last year to talk about the case, which it looks like CNN anchor Pamela Browne quickly came to regret. Or you can read the transcript here.

The key takeaway from Davis was this:

DAVIS: Okay, so it was George Soros’ money that went to support Alvin Bragg’s campaign. The prior Manhattan DA declined to prosecute these charges at Alvin Bragg’s urging when Alvin Bragg worked for the Attorney General’s office. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney declined to prosecute these charges. The Federal Election Commission declined to prosecute these charges, and Alvin Bragg himself declined to prosecute these charges until he started taking heat from the left. And so then Alvin Bragg recruited one of the top officials from the Biden Justice Department, Matthew Colangelo. He was in the number three office in the Biden Justice Department to come to revive this dead case in the Manhattan DA’s office. They brought these bogus, political charges against President Trump, and then he finds out that this judge actually donated to Biden’s campaign, so that at least raises the appearance that this judge could not be impartial against President Trump. 

These cases will continue on, though they seem to be strengthening Trump in the polls against his GOP rivals for the presidential nomination, as more people come to realize the partisan, political nature of these various cases brought against the former president by the current president and his political allies.
