According to former GOP Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, several Democrats have complained that recent elections were stolen. He believes that if Fani Willis, Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney, were genuinely interested in indicting such people, she would also pursue investigations into them, not just former President Donald Trump.
“She’d have [former Georgia gubernatorial candidate] Stacey Abrams in leg shackles by now, [be] arresting Hillary Clinton and a bunch of Democrats who have never accepted the results of the 2016 election or, for that matter, the election in 2000 or 2004,” said Huckabee. “Democrats have a long history of saying elections [were] illegitimate, that this person isn’t right, and that the election was stolen. They get away with it.”
The former president and numerous co-defendants were indicted Monday night in Georgia for allegedly meddling in the 2020 election results in Georgia, where he ultimately lost to now-President Joe Biden.
The grand jury brought 13 felony charges against Trump, including violating his oath of office and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law.
The grand jury also indicted several of the former president’s attorneys, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“I think this only solidifies those of us who are Donald Trump supporters to say, ‘Hang in there, sit tight,’ and we say to other Republicans, don’t let Donald Trump go down with this nonsense,” said Huckabee. “This is going to be the new template for Democrats to run against Republicans. They won’t try to beat them at the ballot box. They’ll just indict them, tie them up in court, and make a shambles out of our system of government and the election process.”
County website briefly showed a preview of Trump’s charges before deleting
In the meantime, the Fulton County court’s website on Monday showed briefly a document that appeared to be a preview of the former president’s criminal charges, and Willis deferred blame and said she doesn’t know how the office of the clerk works.
“I think that’s pretty incompetent on her part, doesn’t know how the clerk’s office works,” Huckabee said. “If it gets posted prematurely, the grand jury hasn’t even voted; I think there ought to be an investigation into that now.”
“It’s another example of a dual system of justice in this country. There’s one for the politically empowered, for those who are leaning left of center, and there’s another one for those of us who are unapologetically America-first Republicans,” said Huckabee.
Huckabee said that the Georgia indictments, along with the other three former President Trump is facing, are a “cover-up” for Hunter Biden’s and President Biden’s actions.
“When Hunter sneezes, somebody goes and indicts Donald Trump for something just to cover up what Hunter and Joe, the ‘big guy’ are doing,” said Huckabee.
However, Huckabee said, “This is not about justice. This isn’t about looking objectively at who broke the law, what they did, and how serious it is to the United States of America. We’re talking about influence peddling, selling our secrets, selling our influence to the second highest person in office, the vice president, not the president.”
Somehow it’s “not important,” added Huckabee. “But a person who was said to have lost an election is questioning it, but only because he’s a Republican; that’s a federal crime. Let’s lock him up. This is insane. We have to stop it.”
