Fox Information is tying knots to spin Trump’s potential indictment
According to Fox News, the charges against Trump hurt him because the charges stand, but also Trump will be helped by the charges because MAGA will rally around him.

Here’s how Fox is taking the news: “Whether it ultimately comes to fruition or not, it stays, but whatever that will do, it’ll cheer the MAGA crowd on. Maybe these people who might be leaning towards a Ron DeSantis, they go here we go again, another witch hunt against our guy. I stand firmly with Donald Trump, and I also think that this is a motivation of the left. I think they would rather have Trump supporters behind Trump because I think they know Trump would be easier to beat than Ron DeSantis.”
In summary, the impeachment against Trump is helping him and hurting him, but this is all a conspiracy on the left to get more support for Trump from Republicans because he will be easier to beat than Ron DeSantis.
Fox is trying to spin this to blame the left because they can’t decide whether a criminal indictment will help or hurt Trump.

The real issue is that Fox and Republicans are looking for a way to use the potential impeachment to unite their party without having to unite around Trump.
It’s a bad sign for the GOP that Fox can’t get a clear message out about a potential indictment against Trump.
Trump is an anchor and the entire right is poised to go down with the sinking ship.
