Psaki Warns Hillary Clinton and Democrats Not to ‘Celebrate’ Trump’s Arraignment Tomorrow

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has warned the Democrats not “celebrate” or “brag” about the indictment of President Donald Trump.

Trump flies to New York today and is due to be arraigned tomorrow.

In an apparent reference to Hillary Clinton, Psaki said that “no one is above the law.”

However, she called on her fellow Democrats to let the process play out rather than gloat about what they hope will happen.

“Now is also not the time for Democratic candidates to celebrate, to brag, to predict the outcome of the legal cases,” Psaki said on her new MSNBC show.

“If you can, I’d actually just put your head down and stay out of it for now.

“If you’re sitting in the White House right now, you are making the right bet that the public cares a whole lot more about what the president is doing to actually make their lives better than what he thinks about a hush money payment to adult film star.

“It turns out their intended campaign message, the Biden team’s, of competence versus chaos may actually even play out before he enters the race.

“They don’t need to spell out and project what chaos means on the Republican side, the leading candidates, leaders in the House, are doing that for them.

“But the thing is, there is absolutely nothing to gain by adding more fuel to that fire.

“So if you want to say something, if you feel you have to say something, stick with the frame that has been in the statements of a number of democratic leaders.

“One, ‘no one is above the law,’ that’s how our country works.

“Two, Trump will be able to avail himself of the legal system.

“And three, there should be no intimidation, and any protest should be peaceful.

“That is how the judicial system is supposed to work,” Psaki said.

“And a functional judicial system is vital to a thriving democracy.

“The defense of those values is also part of how Democrats held onto the Senate and came close to holding on to the House in November.

“It turns out defending democracy and the rule of law is not only morally right, it’s good politics too,” she said.
