Tuberville: Trump guilty verdict shows American justice system ‘no better than Venezuela or China’

Former President Donald Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts is evidence the American justice system is “no better than Venezuela or China,” according to Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala.

Alabama’s senior senator, a staunch ally of the former president who attended Trump’s trial in New York City, called the guilty verdict on the falsifying business records counts “a very dark day in American history.

“This ‘trial’ was a political witch hunt from the start,” Tuberville said in a statement shortly after the verdict.

He attacked Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as a “liberal activist” and Judge Juan Merchan as a “Biden donor” with a “shared goal” of putting Trump behind bars.

“Whether you consider the lopsided jury, the gag order issued to silence only President Trump, the prosecution’s failure to outline the alleged underlying crimes … this trial was a complete joke and massive misuse of taxpayer dollars,” the senator continued.

He said the trial was “pure election interference” and that the American people won’t be deceived by it.

“We can’t have a two-tier justice system,” Tuberville said. “If we don’t return to our Constitution, which guarantees every U.S. citizen the right to free speech and the right to a fair trial by an impartial jury, we are no better than Venezuela or China.”
