Pardoning Trump Like Pardoning Osama bin Laden

Pardoning former President Donald Trump, if he is convicted by special counsel Jack Smith on January 6-related charges, would be like pardoning Osama bin Laden for Sept. 11, 2001, according to left-wing radio host Dean Obeidallah.

Obeidallah joined MSNBC’s “ReidOut” on Friday to argue that Trump spearheaded a “terrorist attack” on the Capitol much like Osama bin Laden masterminded 9/11.

“The idea of pardoning, like we’re gonna move on? Imagine that sentiment after 9/11. Let’s just let bin Laden go. Let’s just move on as a nation. We had a terrorist attack on our Capitol. January 6 was an act of domestic terrorism. That is what FBI Director Christopher Wray testified the attack was,” Obeidallah claimed.

“Everyone involved has to be held accountable. We don’t move on, we hold people accountable. So it doesn’t happen again. That’s very important. Democrat, Republican, doesn’t matter, your president, you attempt a coup, you must go to prison.”

“I think you should spend your last days in prison and not to be cruel but as a message to anyone even a Democratic demagogue in the future, you can’t do this in getting away with this, as we believe in this democratic republic,” he added.

Talk about a false equivalence.

Trump’s lawyers were reportedly told last week by Smith’s office to expect new indictments related to January 6.

But Trump on Thursday said he was told by prosecutors “in detail that I did nothing wrong, was advised by many lawyers, and that an Indictment of me would only further destroy our Country.”

Trump also noted that he was acquitted by the Senate when he was impeached (a second time) over January 6.

“How can Deranged Jack Smith bring a case on January 6th., as ridiculous as it is anyway, when I have already won such a case, and been fully acquitted, in the U.S. Senate? In other words, I was Impeached on this, and WON!!! ELECTION INTERFERENCE & PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT, all rolled up as one. We are truly a Nation In Decline!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

Despite the insurrection narrative being thoroughly debunked, talking heads on MSNBC and other mainstream media outlets will never admit it, just like they never admitted they lied about the Russia collusion hoax, the COVID vaccines, Big Tech censorship, and more.
