‘Shameful’: Ex-prosecutor rails against ‘most offensive part of’ Trump’s trial conduct

Donald Trump and his supporters have perseverated on one particular odious attitude in particular throughout his criminal hush money trial in Manhattan, former prosecutor and legal analyst Catherine Christian told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Wednesday — and it is the relentless attacks on the criminal justice system itself.

This comes as jury deliberations begin in the case, which charges the former president with felony business records fraud that District Attorney Alvin Bragg argues was part aof an election interference scheme to cover up an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

“In this case, I think it was a compelling case, and as a watcher … I probably think he is guilty, but again the independence of process — one of the things I’ve been trying to balance and would love to hear you both as we await this,” said Hayes. “At one level you don’t want to be like everything that runs the American justice system is great, because it is clearly not. You know, having been in that building for 30 years. So I don’t want to say if he is convicted it is fine. People get wrongfully convicted all the time.”

Nonetheless, Hayes added, “at the same time, there is something so insidious to me about the entire Republican Party marshaling behind a kind of party line that this is a corrupt enterprise to its core.”

“That was, to me, the most offensive part of the trial, which wasn’t about the trial,” agreed Christian.

“The Speaker of the House of Representatives, senators, congresspeople outside the courthouse while a trial is ongoing, basically trashing the process, criticizing the judge, talk about attacking an independent judiciary, criticizing the judge’s daughter,” she continued. “That was a statement against the rule of law. The trial was ongoing and they were doing that and that was shameful to me.”
