History was made today as former President Donald Trump became the first President in US history to be indicted or arraigned.
Conservatives have repeatedly warned that weaponization of the criminal justice system will backfire on Democrats after they lose power and that prosecuting Trump could set a dangerous precedent where former Presidents are subjected to politicized charges after they leave office.
Now, leading conservative politicians and talking heads are taking it a step further and demanding that Biden is prosecuted while he is still in office.
A former chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee said that Joe Biden should be charged for his participation in illicit business dealings with foreign countries with his son, Hunter Biden.
Another prominent talking head said that state attorneys could charge Biden with tax fraud while he is still in office and ‘test’ the constitutionality of prosecuting a sitting President.

Trump faces criminal charges in relation to payments made by his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels. His next court hearing is set for December of 2023.
Mike Davis: When I am the acting Attorney General, for about 3 weeks I am going to reign hell on DC. I will clean out the FBI. In three weeks, I will bring indictments against Soros, Hillary, Obama and Biden’s.
Its going to be a good three weeks!

“Republicans need to learn how to take off the gloves and put on the brass knuckles and break glass jaws — politically and legally, not physically,” Mike Davis, a former chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee and president of the Article III Project, told The Post.
“You’re looking at the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, bribery, tax evasion, gun charges, conspiracy, obstruction, espionage with using stolen classified records from the Obama White House for his Ukrainian and Chinese deals,” Davis said of potential charges against Joe Biden.
“Maybe these states have a long-arm statute when you’re dealing with foreign corruption. Who knows? Maybe New York and Florida and places like that can start looking into this,” Davis said before suggesting state tax fraud charges as another possible avenue.
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin also called Monday for Republican attorneys general in border states to test the constitutional question of whether a sitting president can be indicted by charging Biden immediately.
Like Davis, who urged Republican prosecutors to “get creative,” Levin said that there were ample grounds for conservatives to respond.
