Trump indictment ‘a grand waste of this nation’s time,’ head of Reagan Library says
Yahoo News’ Tom LoBianco reports:
Democrats are directing a partisan investigation of former President Donald Trump and have a very weak case in the New York indictment, John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Foundation and Institute, told Yahoo News in a Friday interview.
“He is enemy number one of the Democrat Party and they will choose whatever weapon, whatever technique is at their disposal, to make that known,” Heubusch said. “Like they say, ‘any grand jury can indict a ham sandwich.’ Trump is no ham sandwich, but they’ve just proven the idiom once more. So I just think it’s just theater, it’s politics, it’s prodding and poking at Trump to disturb him as much as they can.”
Heubusch, a former executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, also said that campaign finance cases are incredibly hard to prove because of the significant “gray area” in the law.
“He’s going to win that one hands down. And we’re going to see that it was just badgering or pestering of a former president,” Heubusch said. “There is absolutely no way that Donald Trump will end up behind bars as a result of a supposed violation of federal election law. It’s not going to happen. And, therefore, it is a grand waste of this nation’s time.”
