Senator Chris Coons believes that the criminal charges against former President Donald Trump are well-founded, rejecting Trump’s claim that they are politically motivated.

Coons emphasized that the cases against Trump have both legal and political consequences and are rooted in well-founded charges.

He expressed confidence that Trump’s attempts to characterize the charges as baseless political theater will ultimately fail, citing the rejection of Trump’s legal challenges to the 2020 election (Trending: GOP Rep. Mace Clashes Directly With Hunter Biden At Hearing)

“Let me show you what Donald Trump has said about this. He says, ‘We can’t have every four years there’s a cycle of political recrimination where one administration attacks the prior administration. We open the Pandora’s Box to political prosecution after political prosecution after political prosecution. In fact, Joe Biden could be prosecuted for trying to stop this man from becoming the next president of the United States,’” said MSNBC Anchor Ali Velshi.

“It’s nonsensical because that’s not actually how it’s worked. You’ve been in the Senate for a minute. In a functioning democracy, that doesn’t actually happen?” she asked.

Sen. Coons replied, “What Donald Trump is trying to say there is that all of the cases against him are merely politically motivated, trumped up charges. I think in the end, the real judge of that will be the American electorate, but also a jury of his peers in several different actions.”

“In state court, in federal court, some of these have economic consequences, the action in New York. Some of them have a personal or political consequence, the action in Georgia and the federal actions.”

“They are all rooted, in my view, well founded charges. It is true that we have never had a president of the United States indicted, charged, criminally, certainly not for 93 counts across four different major cases that former President Trump is trying to characterize all of this as baseless political theater may play to some who are his strong supporters, but I think in the end will fail,” he continued.

“Just as his 60 legal challenges to the legitimacy of the 2020 election all failed,” added the senator.
