BREAKING: GOP Senator Claims Jack Smith Almost Has A ‘Slam Dunk’ Case Against Trump

(trendingpoliticsnews) – Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) claimed that Special Counsel Jack Smith almost has a “slam dunk” case against former President Donald Trump in an interview with CNN.

CNN anchor Kasie Hunt pointed out that Cassidy voted to convict the former president during his impeachment trial after the January 6 Capitol protests. “We are 72 hours from the first Republican presidential debate. It’s going to be missing the front-runner, Donald Trump, the former president. He is facing federal charges over his efforts to overturn the election,” Hunt said of Trump. “The former Attorney General Bill Barr says that the charges that have been brought against him are responsible. Do you agree?”

“I’m not attorney. There’s 91 charges, I think. I think the charge that seems most likely, I mean, seems almost a slam dunk, is the one related to mishandling of classified documents,” Cassidy replied. “So I can’t comment on the rest of them because, apparently, you have to prove state of mind. You will have attorneys after me that can comment on that.”

The Louisiana senator then reiterated his belief that the classified documents charges are almost a “slam dunk.”

“But there’s at least one, which is the mishandling of the federal documents, which is — seems, again, a very strong case,” Cassidy said. “They have a tape recording of him speaking of it. If that is proven, then we may have a candidate for president who has been convicted of a crime.”

“I think Joe Biden needs to be replaced, but I don’t think Americans will vote for someone who’s been convicted. So, I’m just very sorry about how all this is playing out.”

When asked if the former president should drop out of the race, the two-term senator said that he should.

“I think so. But obviously, that’s up to him. Just asking my opinion, but he will lose to Joe Biden if you look at the current polls,” Cassidy claimed. “I’m a Republican. I think any Republican on the stage in Milwaukee will, if former President Trump ends up getting the nomination but can’t win a general, that means four more years of policies which have led to high inflation, to a loss of purchasing power for the average American equivalent to $10,000 and many other things that I think have been to the country’s future.”

While not saying it outright, Cassidy insinuated that he will not be voting for Trump if he secures the nomination. This appears to be the most likely outcome, as the former president has only expanded his lead in the crowded GOP field since the indictments started.

“I’m going to vote for a Republican, but my threshold issue for any person who wants to be the leader of our country is will you take care of the issues before us? Biden and Trump have the same policy on Social Security, which is to do nothing,” Cassidy said.

“Former President Trump, President Biden, are basically saying you get a 24% cut because I’m not going to do anything. My threshold issue, if you want to be a leader, is to lead, and right now, we need someone who will lead on that issue.”
