On a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the host expressed his opposition to the possibility of an indictment against former President Donald Trump. Maher warned that such a move would be a mistake and could lead to a backlash among Trump’s supporters.
Maher’s comments were in response to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump, which centers around an alleged affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Maher argued that pursuing Trump on this issue would be seen as petty and would only serve to strengthen his support.
Maher’s warning comes at a time when the Democratic party is grappling with how to deal with the ongoing presence of Trump in the national conversation. Some believe that pursuing legal action against him is necessary, while others worry about the potential political ramifications.
