Liberals and Democrats are gleefully rubbing their hands together at the thought of former President Donald Trump being arrested this week.
Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg wants so much to make a name for himself that he’s bringing charges against Trump for “hush money” paid to Stormy Daniels… the same woman who was ordered to pay Donald Trump for making false claims about her affair with the former president.
The case has ZERO merits. But that’s not surprising. This is just another politically motivated desperate attempt to bring down a president who was loved by millions of Americans. Another example of how corrupt and biased this so-called “justice” system truly is.
Republicans across the country are speaking out against this outrageous abuse of power. Speaker Kevin McCarthy is right to call for an immediate investigation into whether federal funds are being used to pursue politically motivated prosecutions. And former Vice President Mike Pence is spot-on when he calls this a politically charged prosecution.
Senator Lindsey Graham, speaking at an event in his home state, hit the nail on the head when he said that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg had done more to help Donald Trump get elected president than any single person in America today. And Governor Chris Sununu rightly pointed out that many Democrats have misplayed this, in terms of building sympathy for the former president.
The fact is, this whole investigation is a nothing-burger. There are much bigger issues facing our country right now, and it’s time for Democrats to stop playing these silly political games.
Even some Republicans who have been critical of Trump in the past are coming to his defense. Former Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer, who supported Trump’s impeachment, said that this indictment is a billion-dollar gift-in-kind from Democrats to Trump’s ’24 campaign.
It’s clear that criminal charges will only help Trump politically, and Democrats are playing right into his hands. Trump’s supporters are already rallying around him, and any attempts to intimidate or threaten him will only backfire on the Democrats.
So go ahead, Democrats – arrest Donald Trump. But just remember, you’re only making him stronger.
