Huckabee to Newsmax: Can’t See ‘Reasonable Jury’ Convicting Trump in NYC

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told Newsmax on Wednesday that while it’s “great to see so many Republican stalwarts showing up to give their support” to Donald Trump at his New York trial, he can’t see a “reasonable jury” convicting the former president.

“I think everybody, even the people who don’t like Trump, are looking at this and scratching their heads and saying, ‘Why on Earth are the taxpayers’ dollars being used for such a ridiculous show?'” Huckabee said during an appearance on “Wake Up America.” “[Manhattan District Attorney] Alvin Bragg should be disbarred for this and so should [Judge] Juan Merchan.

“I call him Juan Merchant because he’s going to make some money out of this through his daughter, who’s making millions as a Democrat consultant. Merchan himself is a donor to [President Joe] Biden. This whole thing is really a travesty. It’s an embarrassment, I think, to the judicial system and an embarrassment to truth and an embarrassment to the Democrats. It’s only making Donald Trump stronger.”
