Shocker: Even Andrew Cuomo Is Blasting Bragg's Anti-Trump Witch Hunt, 'Talk About a Threat to Democracy'

Share

On rare occasions when liberal Democrats make principled comments, their fellow liberals can do little more than squirm.

In an appearance Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Andrew Cuomo, the former Democratic governor of New York, warned that an overwhelming majority of New Yorkers rightly regard former President Donald Trump’s May 30 conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records — a trial orchestrated by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, and abetted by Judge Juan Merchan, a Democratic donor and father of a Democratic operative — as politically motivated.

“And you want to talk about a threat to democracy,” Cuomo said.

Earlier in the segment, the former governor had noted that 66 percent of New Yorkers viewed the justice system as “politicized” in light of both the Bragg-Merchan trial and an earlier trial brought by Democratic New York state Attorney General Letitia James — presided over with obvious bias by deranged Democratic Judge Arthur Engoron — which resulted in a $454 million judgment against Trump.

“When you have this country believing you’re playing politics with the justice system, and you’re trying to put people in jail or convict them for political reasons, then we have a real problem,” Cuomo said to applause from the audience.

Maher looked deflated by the former governor’s honest and principled observation.

In fact, while the “Real Time” host has anti-woke credentials, he remains a detached, low-information liberal wedded to the lie that the Democratic Party actually represents democracy.

For instance, Maher responded by treating the coordinated attack on Trump not as a  Soviet-style persecution rooted in fundamental lies but as a mere strategic error by Democrats.

In the wake of the former president’s conviction, Americans flooded the Trump campaign with record donations. Thus, a despondent-sounding Maher lamented that conviction as “the greatest fundraising bonanza ever.”

To his credit, Cuomo did not follow Maher in taking the political expedience angle.

“That case, the attorney general’s case in New York, frankly, should have never been brought. And if his name was not Donald Trump, and if he wasn’t running for president, I’m the former AG of New York, I’m telling you that case would have never been brought,” the former governor said.

“And that’s what is offensive to people,” he added. “And it should be, because if there’s anything left, it’s belief in the justice system, right?”



Coming from Cuomo, perhaps only an endorsement of Trump in this fall’s election would have sounded more shocking than this.

That endorsement, of course, will not happen. Although the former governor made a principled objection to political persecution, he remains committed to the Democrats’ false and tyrannical core narrative.

Adam Kinzinger, an anti-Trump Republican and former congressman from Illinois, also appeared on the panel.

After Maher complained that Democrats should have focused on prosecuting Trump for the Capitol incursion of Jan. 6, 2021, which the delusional host described as part of an effort to “overthrow the government of the United States,” Cuomo agreed and even applauded Kinzinger, a former member of the House of Representatives’ Maoist Jan. 6 committee.

“And good for you for Jan. 6,” he told the former Republican congressman.

Will Trump be able to overcome Alvin Bragg and the rest of the swamp’s efforts to stop him from winning?

In other words, Cuomo is no friend to Trump or to the whole truth about the tyrannical establishment. Yet even the former New York governor could see the sinister motives behind those New York trials.

Meanwhile, his comments made Maher squirm — not because of the catastrophic damage done to the justice system but because, in Maher’s safe little illusion of a world, Democrats defend democracy.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
