Trump May Have Self-Incriminated On Truth Social Over Election Interference Case

Trump has been known for putting his foot in his mouth regarding issues relevant to him over the years, and it’s a practice that it doesn’t appear that he’s going to stop. Most recently, posts over on his social media platform, Truth Social, may have inadvertently implicated him in one of his ongoing court cases.

Trump’s Own Words

Glenn Kirschner, a legal analyst and outspoken Trump critic, pointed out in a recent interview that Donald Trump’s comments about his election interference case on Truth Social may have accidentally implicated him.

Kirschner is a former assistant U.S. attorney, meaning that he knows what he’s talking about. In the interview, he used Trump’s own words as potential evidence of guilt, evidence that could be a potential boon for Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Trump’s Immunity Argument

Trump stated in a Thursday post, “A president of the United States must have full immunity, without which it would be impossible for him/her to properly function. Any mistake, even if well intended, would be met with almost certain indictment by the opposing party at term-end.”

This would be shocking enough, but Trump then went on to double down. He finished, “Even events that ‘cross the line’ must fall under total immunity, or it will be years of trauma trying to determine good from bad…”

An Implied Admission

Trump claiming that his actions on January 6 fall under “total presidential immunity” is not a new argument, and it is one that is currently being litigated in the Washington D.C. court system.

In his interview, though, Kirschner pointed out that Trump’s post, and particularly the call for personal immunity with disregard to anyone else’s involvement, could be seen as an admission of guilt. He explained that in legal terms, Trump’s post is what he would interpret as a “tacit admission or implied admission.”

Further Clarification

Kirschner went even further, explaining that Trump was seeking immunity purely for himself. Kirschner bluntly stated that it was a selfish act, without any regard for others.

Kirschner pointed out that the clarification of immunity when “events cross the line” is what gives Trump away. He doesn’t care about any other presidents or even his fellow defendants, he just wants protection for himself because the events of January 6 went too far.

Entitlement Without Bounds

As a legal analyst on staff with NBC News and MSNBC, Kirschner interpreted Trump’s words as him claiming that he personally was entitled to total immunity, not anybody else.

Trump’s words, in Kirschner’s interpretation, meant that the actions that led up to the January 6th attack and all the events afterwards, were crimes that Trump was permitted to commit. Trump thinks that the crimes must be tolerated, simply because he said so.

Trump Simply Cannot Help Himself

Kirschner argued that Trump simply cannot help incriminating himself on the internet. “It doesn’t look like Donald Trump is going to stop providing confessions, admissions, or incriminating statements to Jack Smith anytime soon,” he stated.

He went on, “Trust me, friends, Jack Smith’s team of federal prosecutors is cataloging every word, every sentence, every post because Donalt Trump can’t help himself.” It certainly seems that way, too.

Do His Confessions Make it Easier Or Harder to Convict?

In a different interview, Kirschner debated what Trump’s constant confessions on Truth Social mean. Clearly, the man is scared of being convicted and going to federal prison, but Kirschner argues that his words are more than that.

Kirschner believes that Trump openly admitting to his crimes and claiming that they fall under the umbrella of immunity is meant to cast doubt on his guilt. It goes with the old adage, “If you’re innocent, you have nothing to hide.”

He’s Making Smith’s Job Easier

Contrary to Trump’s beliefs, though, Kirschner argues that Trump’s constant confessions will make it easier for Jack Smith to prove Trump’s guilt in a court of law.

Social media posts are public information, therefore they are eligible to be admitted as evidence in a courtroom setting, allowing for relevance. Trump’s admissions of guilt on Truth Social could easily prove Jack Smith’s case, if he plays it right, and Kirschner believes that is how the case will go.

Frustration With the U.S. Government

Kirschner also expressed frustration with the United States government over their apparent reluctance to hold the former president accountable for his actions.

“Trump is right to believe that he can not only commit crimes, but can also admit to crimes, and the institutions of government will still hesitate to hold him accountable,” Kirschner argued.

Law Enforcement is Biased

Kirschner referred to the apparent bias in law enforcement to make his point. “It’s worked for him thus far, hasn’t it? Our law enforcement agencies and institutions do a lousy job of holding accountable the ruling class criminals. People with wealth, power, influence, and connections.”

Donald Trump’s myriad open court cases prove Kirschner’s point. Some of the cases involve crimes that go back decades, which he is only now being charged with. The January 6 case is not the only trial that has Trump in hot water, and it appears the man knows it.

The Trump Campaign Responds

The Trump campaign didn’t take Kirschner’s comments lying down. A spokesperson for the campaign released a statement in an email to newsweek, criticizing the former attorney for his comments.

“Glenn is a notorious trafficker of wild conspiracy theories and dubious legal analysis. I would expect nothing more from a cloud-chasing MSNBC contributor who has been shunned by the legal community at large,” the statement read.

All About January 6

All of this discourse is in response to pending court cases regarding the January 6 attack. Trump was indicted by the DOJ on four counts related to January 6 in August of last year, including conspiracy to defraud the U.S.

The event unfolded when Trump supporters stormed the United States capitol in an effort to overturn the legitimate election of Joe Biden, an event that Trump was notoriously silent during, and was later impeached for the second time by Congress for. Despite this, Trump has continued to claim election fraud, and maintains that he was the true winner of the 2020 election.

Despite the Courts, Trump Leads

Despite the looming court dates that Trump is facing, he is still the favorite for the GOP nomination for president. In Monday’s caucus in Iowa, the former president set a new record for Republican presidential candidates, winning by a significant margin.

While this was the expected outcome, it only emphasized the widespread support that the former president still has despite the criminal charges stacked against him. It has set the stage for a rerun of the 2020 presidential showdown between Trump and Biden, and Americans are watching with bated breath to see who will come out on top.
