Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is the Great Lakes State’s top law enforcement official, but apparently he doesn’t think Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore deserves due process.
Schuette, breaking from President Trump, has called on conservative Judge Roy Moore to drop out of the Senate race in Alabama despite no admission of guilt, no criminal charges being filed, and no evidence of wrongdoing produced.
If Schuette had his way, Chuck Schumer would gain another vote in the Senate, and Republicans, who are already hard pressed to get enough support to move legislation, would have an even harder time advancing policies important to President Trump and his supporters, such as repealing Obamacare and building the wall.
According to the Detroit News:
“Schuette said he views the accusations through the lens of attorney general and as a parent, noting he has a daughter in the workplace and a son who will be as well.
“These are serious charges that have been leveled against Roy Moore,” he said in an interview on WJR AM-760 radio in Detroit. “Everybody deserves due process, but unless solid evidence is presented to refute these charges, then he should step aside.”
What a scary precedent: Schuette thinks the burden of proof should be on Judge Moore! That’s not how things work in America. It looks like Bill Schuette would do well to focus on issues in Michigan and stay out of Alabama’s business.
President Trump isn’t running scared of the liberal media and Republican establishment like career politicians such as Schuette, he’s defending Moore and says he’s needed in the Senate.
“We need Republican Roy Moore to win,” Trump said Monday morning on Twitter.
President Trump says Moore’s vote will be critical to advancing the President’s “America First” agenda in Congress.
“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump said via Twitter. ” We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!”
President Trump also used Twitter to blast Moore’s extremely liberal opponent, Doug Jones.
“Putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…& so much more,” Trump said. “Look at your 401-k’s since Election. Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!”
