Adam Kinzinger is one of the biggest Never Trump RINOs in politics.
He spent years trying to get rid of Donald Trump.
And now Kinzinger predicted this is what will cause Republicans to ditch Donald Trump.
Manhattan’s Democrat District Attorney Alvin Bragg is preparing to indict Donald Trump on phony, politically-motivated charges that a $130,000 payment by Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels in October 2016 violated New York State campaign finance laws.
Trump was running for federal office at the time and even The New York Times called Bragg’s theory “exotic” and “risky.”
Bragg’s indictment may backfire in another way.
Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina appeared on CNN and said if Bragg brought a sham, politically-motivated case against Trump then it would cause a rally around the leader effect that would propel Trump to not just the GOP nomination, but the White House in 2024.
“I’m not saying it’s a great thing if he gets indicted. I said if they indict him, if they indict him, it will embolden him because he will win this case. It will catapult him to the White House,” Tacpoina declared.
CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper asked former RINO Congressman Adam Kinzinger if Tacopina was correct about Republican voters rallying around Trump in the wake of an indictment by the Manhattan Democrat District Attorney.
“His reasoning is any indictment will embolden Trump supporters, will embolden Trump. Do you agree, and do you think him even talking this way suggests it is a fait accompli? The lawyers themselves think Trump will be indicted,” Tapper asked.
Kinzinger claimed only the Trump base would still support Trump if Bragg indicts Trump.
“Yeah, I certainly think they’re out there prepping the ground. It’s a smart political move to go out and basically try to take the narrative before the prosecutors to take the narrative from you. I do think he is a little right within the kind of Trump circle. This will be a circle the wagon moment,” Kinzinger began.
But then Kinzinger explained exactly why Bragg was bringing the charges by claiming voters on the fence deciding between Trump and another candidate may elect to move on, reasoning that even if the charges were unfair there was too much drama involved.
“But what this will do is those who are on the fence between, say, a DeSantis and Trump or Nikki Haley and a Trump, here is where they might going. I think it’s time we have to move on. Whether you agree with this or not, it may be time to move on. You add this to Georgia and potential January 6th charges now, I think could spell real doom for Trump politically,” Kinzinger concluded.
That is exactly the point.
Bragg and the Democrats know these charges are a joke but polls show that Trump is the GOP frontrunner and stands a strong chance of defeating Joe Biden.
Democrats are worried they can’t stop Trump at the ballot box so they are turning to politically motivated prosecutors to wage lawfare to keep Trump out of the White House.
