Conservative Judge slams “political immorality” in GOP over the Trump mania

Conservative former federal judge J. Michael Luttig called the Republicans “spineless” and slammed them for convincing “Mr. Trump of his political immortality.”

The Judge bared it all

Writing an op-ed to The New York Times, a retired judge who worked in the Bush administration stated, “If the indictment of Mr. Trump on Espionage Act charges – not to mention his indictment for conspiring to obstruct Congress from certifying Mr. Biden as the president on Jan. 6 – fails to shake the Republican Party from its moribund political senses, then it is beyond saving itself. Nor ought it be saved.”

The Judge said Trump was asking to be prosecuted

Talking to MSNBC’s Ali Velshi, Luttig continued discussing the second federal indictment for Trump. The Judge said, “On any given day over the past two and a half years, Donald Trump could have avoided and prevented these prosecutions. He didn’t want to.”

The Judge continued, “He wanted to be indicted and prosecuted for his conduct on Jan. 6. So instead, for two and a half years, he dared, taunted, and provoked both DOJ and eventually Jack Smith to indict him.”

GOP is as responsible as Trump, claims the Judge

The former Judge continued, “Jack Smith had no choice but to indict the former president, lest he make a mockery out of the Constitution and the rule of law.”

Luttig declared that “the Republicans are as responsible for these indictments as Donald Trump is himself. Their unwavering support for Donald Trump since January 6th convinced him of his political immortality.”

Luttig added that Republicans, “in the meantime, they also convinced him that he could recapture the White House in 2024 on their behalf.”

But, in his op-ed, the retired Judge gave conservatives some hope. After all, he titled his piece “It’s Not Too Late for the Republican Party.”

Luttig wrote, “The former president’s behavior may have invited charges, but the Republicans’ spineless support for the past two years convinced Mr. Trump of his political immortality.”

The Judge added how the GOP is responsible for “giving him the assurance that he could purloin some of the nation’s most sensitive national security secrets upon leaving the White House — and preposterously insist that they were his to do with as he wished — all without facing political consequences.”

Luttig, also an informal advisor to former Vice President, Mike Pence, shared, “The stewards of the Republican Party have become so inured to their putative leader, they have managed to convince themselves that an indicted and perhaps even convicted Donald Trump is their party’s best hope for the future.”

The solution?

The Judge previously called Trump’s support a “colossal political miscalculation.” While he suggested that the GOP may be “beyond saving itself,” it is clear what the Judge’s message is.

The warning

He repeatedly said that Trump’s continued push to decertify Biden’s victories in several states threatens democracy. In 2022, he warned, “Trump and his supporters in Congress and in the states are preparing now to lay the groundwork to overturn the election in 2024 was Trump, or his designee, to lose the vote for the presidency.”
