Republicans Slams Manhattan's DA Rumored Arrest Of President Donald Trump

On Saturday, as the former president faced probable indictment by a Manhattan grand jury, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and many MAGA Republicans rallied in support of Trump.

According to posts on Truth Social, Trump claimed he will be imprisoned on Tuesday and urged followers to demonstrate against the "illegal leaks." A representative for Trump then issued a statement clarifying that the tweet had been published despite the fact that the president had not been informed of the indictment beyond what had been reported by NBC News and other media sources.

In a tweet, McCarthy described the radical district attorney who was letting deadly criminals go free as part of his quest for political vengeance against President Trump.

"I'm directing appropriate committees to promptly investigate if federal dollars are being utilized to subvert our democracy by intervening in elections with politically motivated prosecutions," McCarthy said.


Former Vice President Mike Pence, who is considering a presidential run in 2024, has claimed that the possible indictment "reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we faced back in the days of the Russia hoax," despite his recent harsh criticism of Trump over January 6.

Said the Manhattan District Attorney, "This is our top priority?" How Pence put it on SiriusXM radio on Saturday.

Republicans in Congress who support Trump, a potential presidential candidate in 2024, have spoken out against the impending indictment, expressing shock and fury.

Elise Stefanik, the number three Republican in the House, said the Democrats have stooped to "a scary new low" by considering an arrest warrant for Trump.

"Understanding they cannot overcome President Trump at the voting box, the Radical Left will now follow the route of Socialist dictators and reportedly arrest President Trump," she tweeted, referring to him as the top Republican contender.

At a conservative gathering on Saturday, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham dismissed the Manhattan district attorney's case and suggested that prosecutors are "afraid" of Donald Trump.

Graham made the claim that the New York City prosecutor had done more to help Donald Trump win the presidency than any other single person in the United States.

In his opinion, President Trump should appeal all the way to the Supreme Court.

Arizona Democrat Andy Biggs tweeted, "If they can come for Trump, they will come for you. Only in the totalitarian states of the third world do things like this happen.

Almost always, breaking campaign finance laws entails doing one of two things: either spending money that didn't belong to you or unlawfully bringing money into your campaign. Trump "did nothing and said nothing," tweeted Florida Representative Matt Gaetz. Regardless of the outcome of the election, "he spent his own money to settle a private issue."

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (D-GA) called the accusations made against Trump "false" and "outdated." Using Twitter, she urged Republicans to "subpoena these communists and end this."

In another tweet, she said, "We don't need to protest," adding, "These idiots are sealing their own doom in 2024 since the silent majority has two thoughts right now about the current regime."

May God bless the President Trump. Any true American understands this to be a farce.

Jim Jordan, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee from Ohio, tweeted, "God Bless President Trump. True Americans see through this elaborate hoax.

Ohio Senator J.D. Vance, a Trump supporter who has promoted the president's conspiratorial ideas about the 2020 election theft, has spoken out against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, claiming that Bragg "will pursue" Trump while "violent criminals" walk the city streets.

The former president may soon face criminal charges in the state connected to a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, though the date is still unknown.

On Friday, NBC News reported that state and federal law enforcement were preparing for a possible indictment as soon as next week.

Michael Cohen, Trump's former attorney and fixer, is a crucial witness. After pleading guilty in 2018 to making an illegal payment to Daniels at Trump's direction with the "primary aim" of influencing the 2016 election, he testified before the grand jury this week.

Trump said that he reimbursed Cohan the $130,000, but maintained that his actions were within the law. The ex-president has repeatedly denied any misconduct.
