Everyone knows that Donald Trump is currently tagged with two felony accusations that the SDNY has brought against him. Instead of trying to defend himself against the mountain of evidence, Trump has decided to take a new and rather strange approach. He’s trying to paint a picture of himself as a criminal, who’s the victim surrounded by other criminals.
This ridiculous nonsense isn’t going to fool anyone. Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s current attorney, continues to make matters worse for his client. Just this week, Giuliani said these two felonies were “not a big crime”, basically admitting that Trump is in fact guilty of a crime, but it’s not a big “crime”, so we should just sweep it under the rug.
Adam Schiff points out:
Seriously, here’s what Rudy Giuliani told the Daily Beast about the two current Trump felony counts:
“Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed… This was not a big crime,” he said. “I think in two weeks they’ll start with parking tickets that haven’t been paid,” he added.
Whether right, wrong, or indifferent, by saying that the crime was not that big, he perhaps inadvertently implied that they were in fact crimes. However, what Guiliani probably doesn’t realize here is that this is exactly what Mueller was waiting for, which could spell disaster for Trump.
Trump, making matters worse for himself, posted a strange tweet that implies former Governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich is the real victim for going to prison for corruptly trying to sell a U.S. Senate seat. Trump said, “If that doesn’t tell you something about what has been going on in our Country, nothing will. Very sad!”
No sane person on this planet would try to argue that Rod Blagojevich was a victim, but Trump is trying to argue that this man isn’t that bad in an effort to align himself with the man, because he sees himself on a similar path.
Once again, Trump’s tweets and comments from his legal team are just giving us more clues as to what is going on behind the scenes. Trump has also insisted that prosecutors are “entrapping people for misstatements, lies or unrelated things that took place many years ago.”
So, he’s admitting that his crew of followers are in fact criminals, but he wants to convince us that prosecutors are abusing the system by punishing them. Clearly, Trump is grasping at straws and will try anything to paint himself in a better light.
