Biden: Voters ‘Deserve’ THIS

Joe Biden

( – Knowing his reelection hopes were dashed after his disastrous debate performance, Joe Biden went on offense by saying voters “deserve” that former President Donald Trump’s trials play out before the election.

Biden revealed his thoughts while voicing strong criticism of the Supreme Court’s decision to grant former President Donald Trump absolute immunity for actions deemed “official” during his presidency.

Speaking from the Cross Hall, Biden used a teleprompter for his four-minute address and then exited quickly, ignoring reporters’ questions about the debate.

Biden stressed the urgency of resolving Trump’s legal issues before the next election, stating, “The man who sent that mob to the US Capitol is facing potential criminal conviction for what happened that day and the American people deserve to have an answer in the courts before the upcoming election.”

He emphasized the public’s right to understand the January 6 events before voting, expressing concern that the Supreme Court’s decision could prevent it.

He said, “Now, because of today’s decision, that is highly, highly unlikely. It’s a terrible disservice to the people of this nation.”

He further highlighted that it is now up to the electorate “to render a judgment about Donald Trump’s behavior. The American people must decide whether Donald Trump’s assault on our democracy on January 6 makes them unfit for public office in the highest office in the land.”

Biden concurred with Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent, which warned of the potential for a president to assassinate a political rival without accountability.

Sotomayor wrote, “Orders the Navy’s Seal Team 6 to assassinate a political rival? Immune. Organizes a military coup to hold onto power? Immune. Takes a bribe in exchange for a pardon? Immune. Immune, immune, immune.”

In turn, Chief Justice John Roberts said, “But unlike anyone else, the President is a branch of government, and the Constitution vests in him sweeping powers and duties.”

“Accounting for that reality—and ensuring that the President may exercise those powers forcefully, as the Framers anticipated he would—does not place him above the law; it preserves the basic structure of the Constitution from which that law derives,” he added.
