Indictment Hurts Hillary and Joe, Not Trump

Indictment Hurts Hillary and Joe, Not Trump

My polling, conducted this past Monday has not hurt Donald Trump.

We found that Trump still gets more than 60% of the vote in the Republican primary, way outdistancing Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and the rest of the field, among our national sample of 500 likely GOP primary voters.

The real loser here is Hillary Clinton.

The indictment has had the effect of turning the political clock back to 2016 and Hillary’s e-mail scandal.

Even as people see President Trump in the dock for keeping a small number of classified documents at his home, we all wonder why Hillary, who did not just have classified documents but actually erased more than 30,000 of them, has escaped trial.

And, if Hillary is the real defendant in how this case is playing out politically, her co-defendant is Joe Biden.

As Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has charged, this indictment was obviously timed to crowd the startling evidence of President Biden’s alleged corruption off the front pages.

We now have a U.S. senator saying, on the floor of the Senate, that he has in his possession, two audio tapes that suggest then Vice President Biden agreed to take $5 million to get the case against Mykola Zlochevsky — the owner of Burisma Energy Company — dismissed.

Zlochevsky had already purportedly bribed Hunter by putting him on the Burisma board at a salary of one million dollars per year even though he knew nothing about energy.

That these two developments — the one unfolding on the Senate floor and the other emblazoned in our memory of Hillary’s escapades — are not dominating the news shows us how effective the coverup of the Biden scandal really is.

The Trump indictment is nothing but a tactic to take coverage away from the $5 million bribe Zlochevsky is alleged to have paid to then vice-president Biden.

To many the indictment itself is a coverup of the Joe Biden’s alleged crime.

Prosecutor Jack Smith has admitted that it is unlikely that the Trump trial can be held before the 2024 election. So what was its purpose?

Solely as a publicity stunt to distract the media from the real story — that President Biden has the most serious allegations that indicate he committed a crime.
