(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – The majority of former President Donald Trump’s rivals have been cautious when talking about his recent federal indictment; however, some have taken a more direct approach to their criticisms.
Bill Barr, who had served as attorney general during the Trump administration, claimed that Trump would be “toast” if “even half” of what is described in the indictment proves to be true. He later stated that the defenses that Trump and his allies have been using are “farcical” and that Trump had engaged in obstruction.
John Bolton, the national security advisor from 2018 to 2019, stated that the indictment was “devastating” and argued that it would mark the end of Trump’s political career. While former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told the Washington Post that Trump had never before been held accountable and that he was probably “scared s**tless” following the indictment,
Barr, Bolton, and Kelly have all grown to be vocal critics of Trump; however, they are often differentiated from “Never Trump” people, including former Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.). This helps provide them with some credibility in their attacks on the defenses that Trump’s allies have been providing about the 37 counts, which include conspiracy to obstruct justice, retention of sensitive documents, and false statements.
Trump’s allies have repeatedly claimed that the indictment is an attempt at election interference to block Trump from winning the White House again.
Trump is currently the front-runner in the Republican presidential primary race, according to the polls from both before and after his indictment. Many of his supporters want to see him win the White House regardless of the results of this indictment.
