Dozens of Senators Officially Condemn Trump’s New York ‘Show Trial’: ‘Destruction of Due Process’

Dozens of U.S. senators have joined forces to officially condemn President Donald Trump’s “show trial” in New York for his so-called “hush money” case.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) led 28 other Republicans in a scathing rebuke of Democrat President Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland over the anti-Trump lawfare attack.

In a Wednesday letter, Sen. Paul wrote:

“The conviction of President Trump in Manhattan is nothing short of the evisceration of the American judicial process.

“In their zeal to imprison Donald Trump, Democrat prosecutors successfully dissolved the constitutional protections afforded to defendants and the barriers that protect every American from the abuses of arbitrary rule.”

The majority of the Senate Republican conference signed onto the condemnation.

Those signing the document include all three contenders for GOP leader in the next Congress, Minority Whip John Thune (R-SD), and Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL) and John Cornyn (R-TX).

Trump was found guilty of 34 felony counts by the jury in deep blue New York City.

The “guilty verdict” came after a controversial trial which many have slammed as politically motivated.

The trial, overseen by a Biden donor judge, was stacked against Trump from the beginning.

During the trial, Trump was even subject to a gag order.

The lawmakers claimed the 45th president’s right to due process was violated in the process of his trial.

“Even if we disregard Judge Juan Merchan’s financial contributions to Democratic candidates and causes, the prosecutors were permitted to convert alleged time-lapsed business records misdemeanors into felonies because the records violations were supposedly in furtherance of a second crime.

“Yet, even after the jury rendered its verdict, we do not know what constitutes that specific second crime.”

He further pointed the finger at President Biden’s administration.

Paul slammed the Biden admin for being “complicit in the destruction of due process of law.”

The Republicans accused the trial of marking “the attempt to imprison a leader of the loyal opposition.”

They further condemned the case for threatening “the existence of due process of law, without which a constitutional republic dedicated to the protection of individual liberty is not possible.”

Trump is expected to seek an appeal in the case.

His sentencing is scheduled for July 11.

Conveniently, the judge set the date to be just days before the Republican National Convention.

On Thursday, Trump visited Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to meet with both House and Senate Republicans.

The Department of Justice has not yet responded to the condemnation.
