In a stunning conclusion to the months-long trial, former President Donald Trump was found guilty on all 34 charges brought against him in Manhattan. The verdict was met with outrage and disappointment from Trump’s legal team, who have been vocal in their belief that the trial was nothing more than a political persecution.

Trump’s attorney, Todd Blanche, spoke out on Friday, expressing his disgust with the entire process. He stated that the team was even more upset than Trump himself, as they had been warning for over a year that they could not get a fair trial in Manhattan with the judge presiding over the case.

Blanche’s claims were seemingly validated by President Joe Biden’s decision to hold a campaign event outside the courthouse just before the verdict was announced. This blatant display of political bias only added to the mounting evidence that the trial was anything but fair.

The former president has been adamant in his belief that he was targeted by the left, and this trial only solidifies his claims. The gag order placed on Trump throughout the trial further violated his constitutional rights and hindered his ability to defend himself properly.

Blanche continued to outline the ways in which Trump’s rights were violated, including the use of personal records from 2017 as evidence against him. He also pointed out the impact that the trial had on the American people, stating that it not only silenced Trump but also limited the voices of his supporters.

“There’s a lot that’s happened over the past year that I think that Americans should look very hard at, just that the whole way this case was charged,” he continued. “The district attorney says that this type of case is a bread-and-butter, that they do these cases all the time. That is not true. It’s just not true. This is a case that the records of — President Trump’s personal records, his personal checkbook from 2017, is what he was on trial for.”

The attorney went on to accuse the district attorney of being dishonest, claiming that these types of cases are not common and that Trump was being unfairly singled out. Blanche believes that the whole case was charged with ill intent and that this is not the way our country should treat its political leaders, past and present.

Ultimately, the former president’s reaction to the guilty verdict was not one of surprise or shock. He has been well aware of the biased nature of the trial from the beginning and has been preparing for this outcome. As Blanche stated, the team was more upset than Trump himself, as they had been fighting for months for a fair and just trial.

The American people should take a hard look at the events of the past year and question the integrity of this trial. This was a political attack on a man devoted to serving our country. This is not the America we know and love, and it is certainly not how our political leaders, including President Trump, should be treated.
