In a recent interview, Kellyanne Conway, who previously served as White House counsel, remarked that she believes former President Trump is being treated unjustly by the legal system, making it hard for him to get an impartial trial considering the numerous criminal charges against him.
During her discussion on Fox News, Conway emphasized, “There appears to be a dual justice system: one that’s tailored for Trump and another for the rest. Given that places like an extremely liberal county in Georgia, D.C., and New York City, which predominantly voted against him, are involved, I question if he can genuinely get an impartial trial.”
The former president is currently facing four separate criminal charges: two at the federal level in Washington and Miami, and two at the state level in New York and Atlanta.
She added, “Considering that some individuals, in their enthusiasm in front of cameras, made pledges during their election campaigns to ‘target Donald Trump’ – especially those in law enforcement roles or as district attorneys – he might have a strong basis for such arguments.”
One of the most recent charges against Trump, originating from Georgia, accuses him of illegal efforts to reverse the state’s 2020 election results. This charge is similar to one he faces in Washington. Additionally, in Georgia, he’s charged with racketeering, a charge often associated with organized crime.
Close associates of Trump, including lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, are among 19 individuals charged in the Georgia case. Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff, is also named.
In the Miami federal case, Trump is alleged to have mishandled confidential information and attempted obstruction. Meanwhile, the New York state charge asserts he tampered with business records related to payments meant to remain private during his 2016 campaign.
Overall, Trump has received 91 criminal charges across these four cases, marking him as the sole former U.S. president to face criminal charges.
