Schiff advises Biden campaign to target Trump for guilty verdict

Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democratic representative from California, expressed his belief that President Biden should leverage former President Trump’s guilty verdict in the New York hush money case as part of his campaign strategy.

“I believe the president should consider the appropriate timing and context for each argument. Immediately following the conviction, it is understandable that the president would maintain a respectful distance and demonstrate his appreciation for the jury system. However, moving forward, I think it would be beneficial for the president to actively engage with the situation.”

“The convicted felon is Joe Biden’s competitor, and it’s not hard to envision the relentless scrutiny he would face if the roles were reversed. False accusations about Joe Biden are being thrown around without hesitation. It is crucial for both the president and the Democrats to vigorously present their case to the American people.”

Last Thursday, Trump was convicted on 34 counts of falsifying business records. Schiff emphasized that having a “convicted felon” in the White House would hinder progress and prevent the accomplishment of goals.

He said that making a powerful case for running the country properly involves preventing a convicted felon from using the Oval Office and the federal government as a racketeering operation. The verdict in this case supports this argument.

After the verdict, Biden’s campaign emphasized the importance of defeating Trump through the democratic process of voting. In a fundraising email, the campaign referred to Trump as a “convicted felon.”

During the trial in Manhattan, Biden’s campaign refrained from directly criticizing Trump for the hush money case. However, as the verdict approached, they organized an event outside the courthouse with actor Robert De Niro to present their argument for why voters should choose Biden over Trump.

In a Friday statement, Biden criticized Trump’s assertions that the trial was “rigged,” deeming them both “irresponsible” and “reckless.” The campaign further emphasized that Trump’s reaction to his conviction serves as evidence that he is unfit for the presidency.
