The recent verdict in Trump’s trial is indicative of a troubling trend where former presidents may now be subject to widespread criticism and scrutiny, according to a report by Fox News:

“Former President Donald Trump’s trial in Manhattan was a ‘modern day Salem witch trial’ that has opened the floodgates to district attorneys across the nation prosecuting former presidents, experts told Fox News Digital.

“‘No matter how you twist and warp the traditional role of the prosecutor, it’s always going to have a bad outcome. It’s bad for the legal system. And you now see two DAs — both of whom are Soros, rogue prosecutors — using their office to go after somebody who, if his name had not been Trump, no DA would have even blinked an eye his way. [They are using] the law in a perverted way for purely political reasons,’ Heritage Foundation legal fellow Charles “Cully” Stimson told Fox News Digital in a phone interview.

“‘It doesn’t even pass the laugh test,’ he added.

“Bragg charged former Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree last year, with Trump pleading not guilty and slamming the case as a ‘scam.’ He was found guilty on May 30 by a Manhattan jury.

“Trump has maintained his innocence since the verdict, and he has launched an appeal in the case.”
