Will Democrats regret the massive chaos they have created by trying to destroy Trump?
Many Democrats have raised concerns about alleged election theft in recent times. Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, shared his thoughts on Newsmax, suggesting that if Fani Willis, the District Attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, was genuinely interested in pursuing those making such claims, she should be targeting not just former President Donald Trump, but also other Democrats like Stacey Abrams and Hillary Clinton who have contested election results in the past.
Huckabee expressed that Democrats have a history of disputing election legitimacy and questioned why they haven’t faced legal actions for such assertions. He further discussed the indictment of Trump in Georgia, where he lost to Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Trump, along with several co-defendants, was indicted on various charges, including violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law and violating his oath of office. Notably, Trump’s former attorneys, including Rudy Giuliani and Mark Meadows, were also indicted.
In transcript provided by Newsmax, Huckabee stated, “She’d have [former Georgia gubernatorial candidate] Stacey Abrams in leg shackles by now, [be] arresting Hillary Clinton and a bunch of Democrats who have never accepted the results of the 2016 election or, for that matter, the election in 2000 or 2004. Democrats have a long history of saying elections [were] illegitimate, that this person isn’t right, and that the election was stolen. They get away with it.”
Huckabee criticized the situation, stating that it could set a troubling precedent where political opponents are targeted through legal proceedings rather than electoral competition. He highlighted the apparent mishap on the Fulton County court’s website, where information about Trump’s charges was temporarily displayed before the grand jury’s decision. Huckabee considered this a sign of a dual justice system, favoring politically empowered individuals on the left.
In Huckabee’s view, this situation demonstrated a concerning trend of labeling Republican actions as federal crimes while downplaying actions by Democrats. He expressed concern about the potential ramifications and urged for a halt to this perceived injustice.
