Noem Blasts Trump Criminal Trial In NYC: ‘This Is All Politically Motivated’

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem defended former President Donald Trump over the weekend against the criminal trial that he is facing in New York City.

Noem made the remarks during a Sunday interview with Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” just ahead of this week’s opening statements in court for Trump’s trial where he is accused of falsifying business records to hide a hush money payment.

“My hope is that all Americans can trust our judicial system, and that’s really what this case will prove out,” she said. “I think it’s a little ridiculous that they have waited years to bring these types of charges against Donald Trump. If they wanted to make these kinds of charges against him, they should have done it years ago, when this happened. To do it conveniently during a presidential election, when he’s campaigning to return to the White House, I think it proves that this is all politically motivated.”

“It’s the way that Democrats are fighting these days, it’s using the judicial system and activist judges to do so,” she continued. “My hope is that the people and the jury will do what is right and hear the evidence and see clearly that this is an unprecedented trial, but it’s unprecedented in how ridiculous it is.”

Noem also slammed the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office for using someone to testify against Trump who “has been proven to be a liar.”

“Michael Cohen has lied before Congress multiple times,” she said. “That’s their main witness. I would say that he certainly is not someone who can be trusted to do the right thing during this jury trial. They’re also using a woman’s testimony who signed a letter saying that this affair did not happen, that she has testified in the past that this never occurred.”
