For nearly two years after Donald Trump left the White House, no federal or state prosecutors charged him with any crimes. But in November 2022, just days after Trump announced he was running for president again, the Biden Justice Department named a special counsel to investigate the former president.

Now, in the span of just a few months, Special Counsel Jack Smith has announced numerous criminal indictments against Trump in both Florida and Washington, D.C. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg did the same and so did Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis. And now judges are setting trial dates that clearly conflict with the presidential primary schedule.

This is unprecedented. It’s unconstitutional. And it’s un-American. That’s the conclusion of renowned defense attorney David Schoen. The man who led the legal defense for Trump’s second impeachment explains the deep flaws with all of these accusations, the threat they pose to equal justice in this country, and what Trump’s defense team ought to be doing about it.
