The Prosecution and the Persecution of President Donald J Trump
George explores the ongoing legal battles and vilification targeting former President Donald Trump since leaving office. It analyzes the two impeachments brought against him, the investigations into his finances and business dealings, the probes of his role in the Capitol riot, and other efforts to hold him accountable through the courts. Detractors claim Trump's fiery rhetoric and disregard for democratic norms have subjected him to warranted prosecution. But supporters see the moves to punish Trump as political persecution, vengeance by elites upset by his populism. This video examines the merits and motives on both sides. Have legal limits been reasonably enforced on Trump, or is he facing unjust reprisal? Viewers can decide for themselves if the treatment of the controversial ex-president has crossed into overzealous persecution rather than fair prosecution.
