Election Interference? Maybe Trump Is Right

We are learning this week that three separate prosecutors reportedly met with White House aides before indicting former President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden’s political opponent.

The reported meetings suggest a coordinated attack against Biden’s 2024 political rival. 

If coordination occurred, it certainly lends credence to Trump’s belief that the indictments are election interference.

Here's what we learned yesterday.

Be informed, not misled.

The timing of the indictments against Trump has always seemed odd. Peculiar.

After Trump announced a reelection bid against Biden, four indictments hit Trump in four separate jurisdictions, each following revelations about the Biden family business.

Breitbart News is reporting this:

In three cases, prosecutors reportedly met with the Biden administration before indicting Trump:

  1. Alvin Bragg: New York – “Stormy Daniels” Case (state)
  2. Jack Smith: Miami – “Documents” Case (federal)
  3. Fani Willis: Fulton County, Georgia (state)

First Case: “Stormy Daniels”

The first indictment occurred on April 4, 2023, the same day that former Biden aide Kathy Chung testified about Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, contradicting Biden’s version of events.

On March 17, 2023, Bragg asked for a meeting with federal law enforcement ahead of the Trump indictment Trump, a court source told Fox News. A year earlier, Bragg’s office hired a former senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official, Matthew Colangelo, who spent years targeting Trump at the Justice Department. He also attacked Trump in his role in the New York Attorney General’s office.

"Bragg has been very discredited by the indictment because the people that read it, even Democrats—they’re saying this is not an indictment,” Trump exclusively told Breitbart News after the indictment.

Some are saying this is unconstitutional because there’s no crime. He’s been absolutely discredited. It’s a shame. They’re willing to destroy our country. This is all run by the White House, by the way, just in case you have any questions. In fact, they put a man from the White House into one of the top White House/DOJ officials is right there—Matthew Colangelo. He’s the one that’s leading it. He was sitting in the front row in the court during the whole thing. He was in the front row. This is all done by the White House because they don’t want to run against us.

Second Case: “Documents”

Smith filed the second indictment on June 8, 2023, the same day an FBI 10-23 form surfaced alleging Joe Biden was bribed $5 million. Later in June, Smith filed a superseding indictment in the case the day after Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal in Delaware fell apart.

Months prior, in March, a member of Biden’s counsel’s office met with a top member of Smith’s team, just nine weeks before he indicted Trump in the classified document case. 

The meeting “raises obvious concerns about visits to the White House after [Bratt] began his work with the special counsel,” George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told the New York Post. “There is no reason why the Justice Department should not be able to confirm whether this meeting was related to the ongoing investigation or concerns some other matter.”

Trump slammed the indictment as election interference. Biden does not want to “run” against him, Trump said. “They didn’t want to run against me. That’s why they did it,” he said.

Third Case: Georgia Case

Willis filed the third indictment against Trump on August 14, 2023. The official court website of Fulton County, Georgia, published what appeared to be an indictment against Trump before deleting it.

Months before the indictment, Willis’ top county prosecutor met twice with Biden’s White House counsel on May 23 and November 18, 2022, a year before Trump’s August indictment. 

Willis’ prosecutor reportedly charged Fulton County taxpayers $2,000 for each meeting, billing $250 an hour for eight hours. Neither Willis nor the prosecutor dispute the allegations, but a spokesperson for Willis’s office told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she would later respond in court filings.


In January, The Hill said, "Former President Trump on Tuesday insisted the case against him and several others in Georgia over efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results should be dropped after another defendant filed a motion accusing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) of improper behavior.

“You had a very big event yesterday as you saw in Georgia where the district attorney is totally compromised. The case has to be dropped,” Trump said after a hearing in Washington, D.C., over presidential immunity arguments in a separate, federal 2020 election interference case against him. “They went after 18 or 20 people. … She was out of her mind. Now it turns out that case is totally compromised.”

“It’s illegal. What she did is illegal. So we’ll let the state handle that, but what a sad situation it is,” Trump added.

Mike Roman, a Philadelphia-based political operative who served as Trump’s director of Election Day operations on his 2020 campaign and faces seven criminal charges, claimed in court filings Monday that Willis and a top prosecutor in the case are engaged in an “improper” romantic relationship, making the indictment “fatally defective.”

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive" is a very "Shakespearean" phrase; however, it is not from Shakespeare. It comes from an early nineteenth-century Scottish author, Sir Walter Scott, a best-selling writer of novels, plays, and poems.

Like so many of Shakespeare’s lasting observations, it’s a beautifully expressed aphorism that uses just a few words to describe one life experience so perfectly and is so true that it enters into the English language and becomes one of its most powerful idioms. 

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive" means that when you lie or act dishonestly, you initiate problems and a domino structure of complications that eventually run out of control.

The organized attempts to keep Trump off the ticket in November are out of control.
