Recently polled Republicans are now in favor of allowing convicted felons to become president, with more than triple the percentage from a similar poll in April. On May 31, YouGov conducted its first poll on the political support of felons following the conviction of former President Donald Trump. The sharp rise in support is both stunning and not at all surprising. The details of the poll were shared by the Political Polls account on social media.

Given the controversy surrounding the Trump hush money trial and his conviction on 34 counts of falsifying business records, it is reasonable to assume that Republican voters who perceive the former president as a victim of the “witch hunt” given the raft of Democrat-inspired cases and charges filed against him as he prepared to formally announce another run for the White House last fall.

Meanwhile, America First Legal has filed suit against Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, demanding the immediate release of records relating to “credible allegations” of “improper collusion by the Biden White House and Department of Justice (DOJ) in the sham political show trial of President Trump conducted by Alvin Bragg, the New York County District Attorney’s Office, and Judge Juan Merchan.”

Allegations of collusion between the Biden administration and Bragg’s office primarily center on Matthew Colangelo, a senior official in the Biden DOJ who later joined Bragg’s team as a prosecutor. Before taking a role as a prosecutor with Bragg’s office, Colangelo held the third most senior position in the entire Department of Justice.

“Today, AFL sued the DOJ to compel the immediate release of previously requested records regarding Matthew Colangelo, a key figure in the partisan and politically-motivated prosecution of President Trump in Manhattan,” America First Legal wrote in a press release.

Beyond the lawsuit, the legal organization has submitted several Freedom of Information Act Requests seeking records of communications related to Colangelo’s recruitment. They are requesting exchanges involving Colangelo and the New York County District Attorney’s Office, Special Counsel Jack Smith, Jay Bratt, David Harbach, and the organization known as “Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington” (CREW).

A second request is seeking communications between Matt Klapper and the New York County District Attorney’s Office, Special Counsel Smith, Bratt, Harbach, Colangelo, the Public Integrity Section of the DOJ, and CREW. Klapper currently serves as Attorney General Merrick Garland’s chief of staff.

“These critical records will expose the relationship between Colangelo, Klapper, the Biden White House, Special Counsel Smith, and the New York County District Attorney in the sham prosecution of President Trump,” America First Legal’s press release continued.
