Stephen Miller, a close adviser to former President Donald Trump, alleged that the Department of Justice was “trying to put President Trump in jail for 100 lifetimes over a library dispute.”
Miller discussed Trump’s obstruction and “willful retention of national defense information” during his appearance on “Jesse Watters Primetime” Trump is also accused of instructing a maintenance employee at his Mar-a-Lago club to delete CCTV footage.
Miller added that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter are also accused of bribery and foreign corruption.
All of the answers that we could ever need til the end of time, that would close the book on this forever, are inside that drug-addled brain of Hunter Biden. He is the star witness. Now this isn’t hard for the DOJ. This is the kind of thing that people like James Comey could do in their sleep. You would go to Hunter and you would say, “We have you dead to rights on tax crimes, being an unregistered foreign agent, on sex crimes, on drug crimes, on gun crimes, on every crime under the sun, and we will give you an immunity deal, a non-prosecution agreement, under one condition: you tell us everything and you give us the instructions for every foreign bank account and every transaction involving your father Joe.
Watters made fun of Stephen, saying, “Yeah, but Stephen, what you’re missing is, why do that when you can charge Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago maintenance worker?”
“What is $50 million in bribery and foreign corruption and trading on America’s national security compared to a janitor in a library dispute with the national archives? I mean, good lord, Jesse,” Miller stated.
Miller replied: “This is why the American people are absolutely just fed up. They are completely at their wits’ end when it comes to DOJ corruption. They are trying to put President Trump in jail for 100 lifetimes over a library dispute with the National Archives! But right in front of us is literally the corruption case of the century, of American history, and it would take is working Hunter Biden for a couple of hours facing real jail time.”
Watters concluded, “Yeah, it’s disgusting. I’ll say this, we’re disgusted with it, the voters are disgusted with it.”

The fact that the classified documents case will be heard in Florida could help Trump’s federal prosecution for allegedly mishandling sensitive documents.
According to a decision made last week by U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon, Trump will be tried on May 20, 2024, as reported by Politico. Trump is accused of improperly managing classified information at his Mar-a-Lago residence.
According to a recent report, the majority of the jury pool will consist of municipalities that Trump easily won in the 2016 and 2020 elections, which could work in his favor.
A federal judge appointed by Trump, Aileen Cannon, is also presiding over the case. The Northernmost Federal Courthouse of the Southern District of Florida in Fort Pierce, where the judge typically resides, has indicated that the trial will take place there.
“That decision means Trump’s jurors are set to be drawn from the most brightly red corner of a vast court district, plucked from a community that leans heavily Republican—instead of the highly populous and more Democratic urban areas further south. Cannon, the Trump-nominated judge who court officials said was selected at random to hear the case, is the only one of the Southern District of Florida’s 26 active judges assigned in Fort Pierce,” The Daily Beast reported.
“If her palm tree-lined courthouse in that city is the site of what may be the most politically significant trial in American history, the proceedings will take place 70 miles north of the oceanside mansion where Trump amassed sensitive national security documents without permission—even though the West Palm Beach federal courthouse is down the street,” the outlet added.
“You drive around, and you’ll see ‘Trump’ flags and ‘Make America Great Again’ flying in front of houses,” said Paul Bernard, a criminal defense lawyer in Fort Pierce. “With Trump’s trial down this way, he’s going to have a bunch of supporters—and they’re going to make their way onto the jury panel.”
The Daily Beast article went on to say: “It’s solidly MAGA country: all five counties voted heavily in favor of Trump in the 2020 election he ultimately lost, with Okeechobee topping out at 72 percent. Across the board, the former president nabbed 62 percent of the vote on average. In increasingly Republican South Florida, Trump already had a good shot at landing a favorable jury. Although Miami-Dade County still leans blue, it has swung heavily toward the GOP, and right-wing extremist groups like the Proud Boys have permeated official party organizations there. Even Democratic strongholds like Broward and Palm Beach counties have become redder in the Trump years.”
“Overall, the jurors in these five counties are going to be more conservative than your Palm Beach or Dade jurors. And South Florida used to be very blue, but it’s not as blue as it used to be. Things have changed in the past five, ten years. Generally, we’re going to be pretty conservative in this area,” he said.
