Donna Brazile says Supreme Court hearing Trump's case is 'election interference'

 April 29, 2024

The Supreme Court heard arguments late last week over whether former President Donald J. Trump enjoys legal immunity for actions that he took following the 2020 election.

While it is far from clear how the justices will rule, one prominent Democrat recently accused them of engaging in election interference by hearing his case.

According to Breitbart, that claim was put forward by Democratic strategist Donna Brazile during a Sunday appearance on ABC's "This Week."

"I've never been here before, and I never thought in the years, almost 30 years that i worked in presidential politics and campaigns that I would ever have to figure out some talking points when your opponent in the case of Donald Trump is sitting in court all day and not on the campaign trail," Brazile began.

"I have to make a statement, because I remember Bush v. Gore as if it were yesterday," she continued, referring to the case which decided the outcome of the 2000 election.

"They should go ahead and allow this trial"

"I do believe that the Supreme Court is dangling into election interference by slowing it down. I’m not a lawyer, but I had to listen to the oral arguments the other day," Brazile was quoted as saying.

"What I heard again was, they weren’t talking about the facts of the case. They were coming up with all these hypotheticals," the longtime political activist stressed.

"They should go ahead and allow this trial on January 6th to go forward in the district court, and we should know the results before the election," Brazile insisted.

"You can still argue the timing. I mean the district court of appeal rendered this decision in February," she went on to point out.

"Jack Smith said all along, the special counsel said back in December, go ahead. Make the decision and they are dragging their feet," Brazile complained.

Brazile helped Clinton in 2016 primary debate

That Brazile would be making allegations of election interference struck some social media users as being odd given her own history.

Brazile served as head of the Democratic National Committee in 2016, and Fox News highlighted emails made public by WikiLeaks.

They showed her providing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with advanced notice of what she would be asked during a primary debate against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
