Speaker of the House and Republican California Rep. Kevin McCarthy just dropped a bomb on the people who want to indict former President Donald trump, including Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.
“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump. I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” he said non Saturday.
It comes as news that the Manhattan DA is planning to indict the former president, who believes it will happen on Tuesday.
He posted an all caps message on his TruthSocial platform calling for protests if he is arrested, which he believes will happen on Tuesday.
“NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” he said.
What could be an interesting situation in the entire episode is if former President Trump decided to fight extradition from Florida to New York.
In that case, ultimately the person who would have to sign the papers that allow him to be extradited would be Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not announced his candidacy for President of the United States but who has been polling neck and neck with Trump.
But there is no legal way for Gov. DeSantis to stop to the extradition of the former president, Insider reported.
