Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina has already shown how he will defend the former President. He will smear individuals and institutions with the same foul odor that is emanating from Trump.
Mr. Tacopina’s client considers himself above the law, so Tacopina is already trying to make Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg look every bit as loathsome as his own client. As Tacopina tells it, D.A. Bragg is placing Trump “below the law,” not even giving him the fair shake ordinary folks would get.
Trump defender Rep. Jim Jordan says this prosecution is not “equal justice.” It is low life justice meted out by a low life prosecutor for someone he considers to be a low life defendant. In effect, the government is the criminal here, and Mr. Trump is the victim.
This legal strategy is as old as the story of Cain in the Bible. Cain believed God was discriminating against him because of his farming profession, not for anything ethical or substantive. Angry, he killed his brother Abel. When summoned to God’s “court,” he said he did not know the whereabouts of his brother.
God found that Cain had committed murder and banished him. Let’s hope that Abel prevails in Manhattan today, not Cain.
