CNN talking heads dejected at news Biden’s classified doc debacle spells good news for Trump
Despite the spin machine’s best attempts to downplay the news that President Joe Biden kept “a small number” of classified documents at a private office, one CNN analyst believes this complicates the White House’s case against former President Donald Trump.
During the Tuesday morning edition of “CNN This Morning,” analyst John Miller laid out why he believes the Department of Justice is going to have a difficult time going forward.
“We’re talking about political street fighting here that is going to go on, with control of the House now, at a fairly high pitch,” he said. “And, you know, if you take the purely legalistic side of it and you get into the optics and the politics, what happened here is going to make it almost impossible to charge Donald Trump with any violation of classified documents.”
CNN anchor Poppy Harlow was clearly surprised to hear that, eliciting a stunned “Really?”
Don Lemon had a theory of his own to posit.
“I said that last night, it puts Merrick Garland in a very odd position. Did they know this was coming? This was November? I said, well, you know, look, I’m just asking here. Maybe Merrick Garland didn’t. Everyone’s wondering why he didn’t act, did he know this was coming?”
“The White House knows how to get news out fast and they know how to get news out slow,” Miller continued. “The idea that we went through the contretemps of last week and once that was all clear, you know, they announced this probably, you know, speaks for itself in terms of analysis.”
At this point, Kaitlan Collins stepped in to press Miller on his suggestion that this announcement may be to Trump’s benefit.
“I’m so interested that you said it helps Trump because I was talking to people close to his legal team yesterday and they were saying this is a huge gift to them because they believe, you know, politically speaking, of course, the obstruction is obviously the big part of the Trump story,” she revealed. “He resisted for so long, turning them over. But they believe it helps make their argument that it’s pretty easy actually, to innocently and mistakenly perhaps take classified documents. Does that actually hold up in court?”
“Sure, it holds up in court as an argument. But, you know, the law is clear on both. It’s just, you know, the balancing act of you’ve got a special prosecutor, you know, Jack Smith, who’s going to is going to make a recommendation, and then the attorney general is going to have to make a decision. And these developments have put him in a very awkward place in terms of the decision-making,” Miller clarified.
