(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Former Biden White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, now an MSNBC host, publicly expressed frustration over Republicans refusing to condemn Donald Trump, even as they continue to decline in GOP nomination polls.
Filling in for MSNBC host Chris Hayes on the segment “All In,” Psaki pointed out Trump’s ongoing legal troubles that most Republican candidates have remained relatively tight-lipped about. The criticism comes as the former president has been charged with numerous felonies across two indictments, one by New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg and another by the Biden administration’s Department of Justice.
The news also comes as Department of Justice Special Counsel Jack Smith sent a target letter to the former president, letting him know that he is the subject of yet another investigation into his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. The letter is a sign that Trump is likely to be indicted for the third time.
Psaki played a clip of former Vice President Mike Pence saying that he is not convinced that Trump engaged in any criminal activity, even though he was the subject of the rage of Trump supporters who rioted at the Capitol building on Jan. 6, when Pence refused to attempt to overturn the election in Trump’s favor.
Psaki also made a note of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, now-presidential candidate, airing a clip of him saying that he hopes the former president is not criminally charged. Psaki also said that the Republicans’ “political calculation to stand by” Trump simply “isn’t working.”
While Psaki may be confused over why Trump’s primary challengers aren’t hammering him over his legal troubles, many Republicans, regardless of how they feel about Trump, believe he is being persecuted by Democrats weaponizing the law against him.
Trump continues to lead his party in GOP nomination polls by over thirty points, as his largest competitor, Ron DeSantis, has declined to a meager 18 points since peaking at 31 points in February.
