Biden’s Hands Are Clean? Yeah, Right – Who’s Buying That?

President Joe Biden recently dismissed claims that he was orchestrating the criminal conviction of former President Donald Trump. With a smug laugh, Biden remarked, “I didn’t know I was that powerful,” when asked about Trump’s assertion that the Biden administration was behind the 34 felony counts Trump was convicted of.

Outside the White House, journalists questioned Biden on whether the conviction might actually benefit Trump in the upcoming election. Biden replied, “I have no idea.” The media pressed further, asking if Biden was worried about facing criminal charges after his term ends. Biden, unfazed, responded, “Not at all. I didn’t do anything wrong. The system still works.”

When directly confronted with Trump’s claim that Biden was manipulating the justice system to damage him politically, the President laughed it off. But this isn’t a laughing matter. We’re talking about unprecedented actions here that are shaking the foundation of American democracy.

Former President Trump was found guilty on May 30 of 34 counts of falsifying business records. These charges were connected to non-disclosure payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign. This conviction marks a dark chapter in American history—the first criminal conviction of a U.S. president. Trump’s immediate reaction was to denounce the verdict outside the courthouse, calling it a “rigged trial” and accusing the Biden administration of orchestrating it to eliminate a political rival.

“The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5, by the people,” Trump proclaimed defiantly. He promised to keep fighting until the end and win. And you know what? Millions of Americans believe in that fight. Within 24 hours of the verdict, Trump’s campaign raked in a record $52.8 million in donations, showing just how many Americans are fed up with what they see as a politically motivated attack.

Biden’s dismissive response to Trump’s “rigged trial” claims is worrying. He called it “reckless” for Trump to question the fairness of the trial, which was supposedly conducted by a jury of 12 unbiased Americans. Biden stated, “Donald Trump was given every opportunity to defend himself. It was a state case, not a federal case.”

Biden defended the trial process, saying the jury had deliberated carefully after hearing five weeks of evidence and unanimously found Trump guilty. He stressed that Trump, like any American, had the right to appeal. “That’s how the American justice system works,” Biden said, adding it was “reckless, dangerous, and irresponsible” for anyone to claim the trial was rigged just because they disagreed with the outcome.

But let’s get real. How many of us trust the so-called “justice system” when it’s been weaponized against a former president who’s a clear frontrunner for the next election? This isn’t just about Trump; it’s about the integrity of our entire political system. It’s about ensuring we keep a sitting president from eliminating competition through shady legal maneuvers.

Trump’s sentencing is set for July 11, just days before the Republican National Convention, where he’s expected to be officially named the GOP nominee. His legal team has pledged to appeal the verdict. House Speaker Mike Johnson has called on the Supreme Court to overturn the conviction, arguing it undermines public faith in America’s justice system.

Let’s not forget that no laws prevent Trump from running for President as a convicted felon. An overturned verdict before Election Day would likely boost his chances. Still, even with the conviction, Trump’s support base seems more energized than ever. They see a man fighting not just for his dismissal but for the very soul of America.
