Fox News Attacks First Lady For Attending Hunter's Trial

Fox’s Trace Gallagher and former Bill Barr flunky Kerri Urbahn accused First Lady Jill Biden of trying to send “a message from the White House by heaven forbid appearing in the courtroom during jury selection for Hunter Biden’s trial in Delaware on federal gun charges.

Everything is projection with these people. Trump sits there glaring at the potential jurors during during jury selection in New York, and now they’ve got to accuse Jill Biden of doing the same thing.

Here’s the exchange with Gallagher and Urbahn this Monday accusing the First Lady of trying to intimidate potential jurors:

GALLAGHER: Legal editor and former counselor to Attorney General Bill Barr, Kerri great to have you on I’m just wondering as you kind of listen to David go over what’s happening in the courthouse there, are you surprised we got this far? Are you surprised this thing didn’t end with some sort of plea deal?

URBAHN: Yeah, I’m very surprised. I think it would have been in Hunter’s best interest to plead out to this given that it’s a pretty open and shut case. You know, by his own admission he was a drug user during the time he purchased this gun we know that from his book. The prosecution says they have ample evidence of videos and photos and the like from his infamous laptop that showed the same.

There is no “laptop.” There’s what’s supposed to be a copy of Biden’s laptop with no chain of custody where we’ve got no way of knowing how much was actually stolen from his actual laptop and how much is Russian disinformation.

And there are lots of reasons why that plea deal blew up, one of them being the Trump appointed judge sabotaging it, but I digress.

URBAHN: It’s a pretty simple case, but Trace, I’ll tell you what surprises me the most. It’s not the fact that he decided not to do a guilty plea. It’s the fact that Jill Biden is sitting there during jury selection and that’s remarkable.

I mean think about if you’re a juror sitting there. You’re you’re looking at Hunter Biden and you’re thinking about the ramifications of this case, and then the First Lady is sitting there in the front row watching you as you do that.

I mean, that’s definitely a message from the White House.

GALLAGHER: Yeah, and I’m just, so my second question is what do you make of that? I mean it kind of seems to me like it’s unusual there. I mean, it’s hard to say that that she can’t do it, but it seems unusual Kerri.

URBAHN: Yeah, but and for jury selection? You know, we’re not talking about opening arguments, closing arguments. We’re not even talking about Hunter on the stand. You know, typically if someone sits there during jury selection, it’s because, you know, they’re sending a message. They want the jurors to look at you to say like look here we are.

Yeah, this is a big deal and given that this is her husband’s Justice Department who is prosecuting Hunter Biden and Joe Biden has sent, I think, repeated public messages to his Justice Department by saying that his son has done nothing wrong, that he’s innocent, that he’s proud of him and of course including him, even up to a couple of days ago, on Air Force One, the White House, big events. I mean, how else would you interpret that if you were working at the Department of Justice?

GALLAGHER: Yeah, at least Jill Biden didn’t stand up and say hey, by the way, it’s my birthday just to somebody knows here It’s my birthday.

So they want us to believe that the potential jurors didn’t already know who Hunter Biden’s parents are, and that the Justice Department, which is prosecuting Biden’s son, was somehow bullied out of prosecuting him because of Biden’s words of support? The illogical spin is enough to make your head hurt.

What message did the jurors get when Republicans showed up in force dressed alike for Trump’s trial?

Urbahn has quite the resume as well:

Kerri Kupec Urbahn is Legal Editor for Fox News. Prior to her work in media, Kerri served as the Director of Public Affairs for the Department of Justice under Attorney General William P. Barr. She also served as Communications Director for Alliance Defending Freedom, and clerked for Court of Appeals of Virginia Judge William G. Petty.

The same Alliance Defending Freedom that’s been designated a hate group by the SPLC:

Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that has supported the recriminalization of sexual acts between consenting LGBTQ adults in the U.S. and criminalization abroad; has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad; has contended that LGBTQ people are more likely to engage in pedophilia; and claims that a “homosexual agenda” will destroy Christianity and society. ADF also works to develop “religious liberty” legislation and case law that will allow the denial of goods and services to LGBTQ people on the basis of religion. Since the election of President Trump, ADF has become one of the most influential groups informing the administration’s attack on LGBTQ rights.
