(LibertySociety.com) – In a campaign ad released last week, the Trump campaign took a break from attacking his primary opponent Ron DeSantis to compare President Joe Biden to a “corrupt, third-world dictator,” The Hill reported.
But instead of hammering Joe Biden over the damage he has done to the country, the campaign ad blames Biden for Trump’s mounting legal woes.
In the ad, a narrator accuses Biden of unleashing “unscrupulous government bureaucrats” to “attack his greatest threats.”
As the video shows images of the various prosecutors investigating Trump, including special counsel Jack Smith, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, and New York State Attorney General Letitia James, the narrator accuses President Biden of “launching one of the greatest witch hunts in history.”
Of course, Joe Biden was not the president when Alvin Bragg and Letitia James began their investigations into Donald Trump. Donald Trump was.
The ad also features the headline of an NBC News article from June after he was indicted in the classified documents case, titled, “Trump’s GOP lead grows after latest indictment, poll finds.”
The ad was released the day before Jack Smith announced the 4-count indictment against Trump in the investigation into the former president’s attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
In the latest indictment, the special counsel accuses Trump and his campaign of making “knowingly” false claims that the election was stolen to pressure federal and state officials into altering the election results.
The indictment details the Trump team’s scheme to assemble a slate of fraudulent electors in multiple states and accuses Trump and his allies of trying to compel then-Vice President Pence to enter the fraudulent slate of electors when Congress met on January 6 to certify the election to declare Trump the winner.
Trump appeared in a Washington DC District court last Thursday where he pleaded not guilty to the 4-count indictment.
US District Judge Tanya Chutkan, an Obama appointee, scheduled the next hearing for August 28 when she is expected to set the date of the trial.
