Trump Brought a Surprise to the Courthouse Today – This Is Pure GOP Firepower

When Democrats hatched their lawfare schemes at Trump a year ago, some Republicans turned on Trump. They used the cases generated by Democrats as reasons for voters to reject Trump’s return to the White House.

It is possible that Democrats launched their cases when they did, to convince the GOP to back away from a third Trump campaign.

Despite this, voters made their voices heard. Trump crushed his GOP rivals to secure the nomination for a third time. Even as the criminal trials heat up, liberals might expect Republicans to flee from the candidate. But he just showed up to court with an unexpected entourage.

From The Post Millennial:
Joining Donald Trump in Manhattan on Monday as DA Alvin Bragg’s falsified business records case continues in court were Senators JD Vance and Tommy Tuberville as well as House Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of Brooklyn and Staten Island.

The three were seen outside the courtroom where Trump spoke ahead of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen taking the stand as a witness for the prosecution. Reading out articles on the trial for reporters outside the courtroom, Trump said the case was a “baseless, politically motivated prosecution” and a “political witch hunt.”

Several top Republican figures attended court with Trump this week. Those included Sens. JD Vance and Tommy Tuberville. Tuberville has long been a Trump supporter. Vance has been in the running to become Trump’s next VP pick.

Along with them was New York Republican Nicole Malliotakis. The group flanked Trump as he entered the courthouse. He decried, once again, the trial as political “prosecution” and a “political witch hunt.”

The appearance of these Republican leaders alongside Trump shows they agree with his assessment of the trial. Republicans are uniting behind Trump, even as Democrats try to get him convicted.

More and more Republicans have spoken out against the civil and criminal trials thrown at Trump. They have accused Democrats of using the legal system to manipulate the election. Some believe Democrats are trying to keep Trump off the campaign trail, while also draining him of money.

But polling suggests that these trials are not hurting Trump’s popularity among voters. On top of that, a recent poll showed that even if Trump is convicted, Biden’s chances at reelection are not improved.

It seems to be a lose-lose for Democrats at this point. But they are unlikely to stop these schemes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Several top Republican lawmakers were seen with Trump at the NY courthouse.
  • Those included were Sens. Vance and Tuberville and Rep. Malliotakis.
  • Republicans are uniting behind Trump despite Democrat-run cases against him.
