HBO late night host Bill Maher anticipates that Republicans will slap President Joe Biden with criminal charges the day after he leaves office.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s historical indictment of former President Donald Trump has set a legal precedent that the “Real Time” host fears will be catastrophic for Biden and other future presidents.
Maher began a segment on his Friday night show by lamenting to guest panelist, Republican Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears, about how Trump’s indictment was an “impossible choice.”
“For me, it’s like, you can’t not go after him, because he’s always guilty,” Maher claimed, adding that he believes Trump was guilty of both impeachments brought against him by the Democrats.
“I always ask myself the question, ‘What is actually better for the future of the country and my future?'” he continued.
“Because I don’t want to live in a country where we are one of these places where whoever is president, as soon as they get out of office, they go after them.”
“It’s almost Greek tragedy-like because you set off this cycle of revenge like The House of Atreus. And I guarantee you when Biden is out of office, Day Two, they will try to arrest him,” Maher concluded.
Sears noted that “everybody deserves due process,” and that the public is unaware of the actual charges, which are currently under a judge’s seal.
“I think what my grandmother said, ‘be careful that you don’t dance on the grave of your enemy because you may fall in,’ so let’s just wait and see what plays out,” she asserted.
Fellow guest panelist, Tablet Magazine columnist James Kirchick, said the “tragic part” about Trump’s indictment is that there are “three other investigations going on right now, all of them far more serious than paying off a porn star.”
He pointed out that Trump is currently being investigated for “his potential responsibility’ for Jan. 6, the classified documents that were kept at Mar-a-Lago, and his involvement with the Georgia 2020 election results.
“If you’re gonna indict the first president ever in the history of this country for something, and the real potentially dangerous prescient that sets, why couldn’t it have been for one of these other investigations?”
Kirchick said that Bragg’s case was based on a “novel legal theory,” and it’s “unclear if he’ll even be able to get a conviction.”
Maher said that either way, the indictment “unites Republicans,” and also makes Trump the GOP nominee.
According to the New York Post, Republican prosecutors are already gearing up to go after Biden and his Democrat allies.
“All bets are off. You can expect grand jury indictments of leftist politicians like Biden, Pelosi and Schumer as surely as night follows day,” Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton told the outlet.
“You can be sure that there are prosecutors across Florida and Texas right now who are looking for a state law hook into the Biden family, and if they’re not, they’re not doing their jobs.”
Mike Davis, the president of the Article III Project, said that Republicans need to learn how to “put on the brass knuckles and break glass jaws,” in the wake of Trump’s indictment.
“If New York can turn a routine settlement of a business dispute seven years ago into a felony, I think our Republican AGs and DAs should get creative,” Davis said.
“You just need probable cause. A grand jury can indict a ham sandwich. We just saw that in New York. And the Bidens actually committed real crimes,” he asserted.
“These are real crimes that the Bidens committed. There is smoking gun evidence that the Bidens were corruptly and illegally on Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs’ payrolls.”
In another segment of Friday night’s show, Maher and both panelists discussed how the liberal media was deliberately “misgendering and deadnaming” the 28-year-old transgender shooter, who killed three children and three adults at a Christian elementary school in Nashville on Monday.
“They are referring to the murderer by their given name, not their chosen name, and referring to her as a woman, as opposed to what her identity apparently was as a man, which is not the way the media usually does these things,” Kirchick pointed out.
“They are usually very particular about the subjective sense of gender identity and respecting that. If someone says they’re a man then they’re a man, but in this case they’re not doing that.”
Sears furiously interjected that she didn’t care about the shooter’s gender identity after committing such a grievous act.
“This person murdered six people, I don’t really care who you say you are. You murdered six people, and three of them were children,” she hissed.
“You don’t get a say. Well, she’s dead now, but you don’t get a say in telling us who you are and what you’re about. You killed six people,” Sears said to applause from the audience.
