Fox News Supports Biden Over Trump

Fox News anchor and legal analyst Shannon Bream pushed back on a claim made by Alina Habba, one of Donald Trump’s attorneys, that President Biden is responsible for the criminal charges the former president faces in New York.

“Joe Biden, unfortunately, can’t really do anything in office,” Habba said during her appearance on “Fox News Sunday” with Bream, who has been reporting from outside the Manhattan courthouse where Trump’s trial is taking place. “So he’s got to use the same means as somebody who’s just trying to have a quick slip and fall and make money. And that is, frankly, what we’re seeing right now. This is exactly a Biden show because he’s got to distract the American people.”

Bream interjected, “But the Biden administration is not responsible for this trial.”

“How can you say the Biden administration is not responsible?” Habba responded.

“It’s a state trial,” Bream clarified. “It’s [Manhattan District Attorney] Alvin Bragg. Whether you think there’s a political motive for him, it’s not connected to the DOJ. I mean, the feds passed on these election charges.”

After Habba suggested that logs showing state officials from New York and Georgia visiting the White House indicated political influence in Trump’s prosecution, Bream reiterated, “The feds passed on these cases, is the point I’m making.”

Trump faces 34 charges in New York related to allegations that he falsified business records to hide hush money payments made just before the 2016 election to women who claimed to have had affairs with him. The former president has pleaded not guilty to the charges, and his political allies argue that the charges are politically motivated to prevent him from securing a second term in the White House.

A jury in New York began deliberating a verdict in the case on Wednesday morning. Trump is also dealing with two separate criminal cases related to his efforts to remain in office after the 2020 election, as well as a federal case regarding his retention of White House records after his term ended.
