Trump Lawyer: Democrats Care More About Keeping Trump Off Campaign Trail Than They Do Winning In Court

 One of former President Donald Trump’s top lawyers explained this week that he believes that Democrats used their criminal cases against Trump to try to keep him off the campaign trail.

Attorney Chris Kise made the remarks during a Fox News interview when asked by host Jesse Watters what he believed was happening.

“Well, I think, you know, the Democrats claim that Trump is a threat to democracy,” he said. “The real threat to democracy is the willingness to abuse the power of your office to influence what should otherwise be a free and fair election. And that’s exactly what’s going on downtown in the courtroom. I mean, look at just this week. You’ve got a hearing in a civil case about essentially nothing. You’ve got a criminal trial starting. And later this week, there’ll be a Supreme Court argument. All in cases that were made up specifically for the purpose of influencing the outcome of an election.”

Kise said that the trials that Trump faced all had a “similar pattern” and he wasn’t even sure if the Democrats even cared that much about winning them.

“I’m not even sure that they really care what the outcome was,” he said. “We went downtown and had a hearing to determine that $175 million of President Trump’s cash that he posted, is actually worth $175 million. And a bond form that has been in use for 100 years in the State of New York is actually valid, but we wasted time, money, and resources. And I think that’s the goal. Let’s drain the President’s time. Let’s drain his focus. Let’s drain his resources. All while now President Biden is somehow magically out of the basement campaigning. He’s on the campaign.”

Speaking on the draining impact that being on in the courtroom has on a person, Kise said: “It does take a toll. I think that President Trump will withstand that toll, because he’s an extraordinarily resilient individual. But it’s demonstrative of exactly what they want. The Democrats have President Trump where they want him: Trump on trial, President Biden on the campaign trail. That’s what they’re looking to do. They’ve realized, you know, there’s two ways really to influence human behavior. You can inspire it, or you can manipulate it. President Trump inspires people. But I think the Democrats have realized that President Biden isn’t going to inspire anyone. So now we have to manipulate the outcome. And that’s exactly what they’re doing. They’re using the weapon that they have, the power of these court cases. I mean, in 30 years, I’ve never seen any one defendant face multiple cases in multiple jurisdictions all at the same time.”
