Jen Psaki, former White House spokesperson for Joe Biden, has urged her fellow Democrats to keep quiet about their excitement regarding the indictment of former President Donald Trump. Psaki’s advice was for Democrats not to celebrate, brag, weigh in on the news, or even buy merchandise gloating about the charges or arrest. She said that now is not the time for Democratic candidates to predict the legal cases’ outcome, celebrate, or brag about the whole situation.

The indictment against Trump stems from the hush money payment arrangement to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels, which is a misdemeanour charge. The district attorney from Manhattan, Alvin Bragg, indicted Trump based on the recommendation of a grand jury consisting of some of the most vicious liberals in the country. However, the statute of limitations has already expired.
Psaki issued this warning to her colleagues because she believes it’s not the time to judge or predict the case’s outcome when it is still in its early stages. One should stay out of it if it does not concern them directly. And judging from the liberal reactions, they may be in for a big disappointment, as the charges are misdemeanours and not felonies.
Psaki noted a recent poll indicating that nearly 30% of Democrats, 70% of Independents, and 90% of Republicans believe the Manhattan District Attorney’s case against Trump was politicised. Hence, it is wise to stay neutral and wait for the legal process to run its course.
It is not hard to see why Psaki has urged the Democrats to stay silent. Many narratives have been purported to end Trump’s era, including the Russian collusion hoax, which failed, and the Mar-a-Lago raid last summer, which was supposed to provide the basis for a case of mishandling classified documents against Trump, but also fizzled. It seems unlikely that these new porn payments charges will be the legal kill shot the Democrats are hoping for, and it would be wise for them not to jump to conclusions prematurely.
