ABC cuts off the mic on Trump's lawyer during interview

 June 3, 2024

ABC News, over the weekend, cut off the microphone on former President Donald Trump's lawyer, Will Scharf. 

The decision to do so, according to the Daily Mail, was made by George Stephanopoulos, the former Clinton communications director who has gone on to become one of the Democrats' chief television propagandists.

Scharf, as you probably have guessed, appeared on ABC on Sunday to discuss Trump's recent guilty conviction in the so-called hush-money case.

There, however, wasn't much of a discussion, because Steaphanopoulos essentially censored the attorney.

"I'm not going to let you continue"

What really got under Stephanopoulos's skin is when Scharf claimed that it is President Joe Biden and his administration that are behind the prosecution of Trump - that the Biden White House has been weaponizing the American legal system against their chief political rival.

"Of course, the attorney general of Manhattan has nothing to do with the Department of Justice," Stephanopoulos claimed.

Scharf shot back, "I vehemently disagree that the district attorney in New York was not politically motivated here, and I vehemently disagree that President Biden and his political allies aren't up to their necks in this prosecution."

Perhaps afraid that his viewers might get to hear the truth for a change, Stephanopoulos said:

There's no evidence here of that sir... I'm not going to let you continue to say that — there's zero evidence of that. This has nothing to do with President Biden. Do you want to answer the question about the sentencing process or not?

Scharf said that he "completely disagrees" with the idea that Biden is innocent in all of this, and the interview continued on a slightly different topic.

The missing link

One would have to be incredibly naive to believe that there would be clear-cut evidence of Biden's involvement in the case. As Stephanopoulos says, there is not.

But, there is extremely strong circumstantial evidence.

The Washington Examiner explains how Matthew Colangelo,  the number three man in Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ), left the DOJ to join Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's (D) office just ahead of Bragg's prosecution of Trump.

That is a fairly significant demotion. One has to ask him- or herself why Colangelo would take that demotion. Could he be a White House plant? Did the Biden people choose him to be their surrogate in Bragg's office to make sure that they "got Trump"?

This is something that each American has to decide for him- or herself. But, Stephanopoulos's claim that there is "no evidence" of the Biden White House's involvement in Trump's prosecution is simply false.
