The lawless New York court system attempted to hold a presidential candidate confined to prevent him from running for president in 2024, despite being unable to identify any laws he has violated.
Democrat Alvin Bragg, the Marxist district attorney responsible for bringing a demand for President Donald J. Trump’s arrest this week, does not believe he must produce a crime or a law that gives him the authority to do so, and he is behaving in such a way that he has likely broken laws himself, demonstrating the two-tiered system of justice that is blatantly displayed for the American people to see.
At least one legislator had defended the rule of law.
Earlier in the week, the New York Post reported on the circumstances that led to the arrest.
“A Trump indictment would be a disgusting abuse of power. The DA should be put in jail,” Paul (R-Ky.) wrote in a scathing tweet last week.
Paul is the latest Republican to accuse Bragg of leading a politically motivated investigation into the 76-year-old former president, who is accused of directing a $130,000 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016 in exchange for her silence about an alleged 2006 affair.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) wrote to the Democratic Manhattan DA on Monday calling his plans to charge Trump “an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority.”
The two lawmakers refrained from echoing Paul’s demand that Bragg be imprisoned, but they did ask the prosecutor to hand over documents and depose regarding “what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecution” of the former commander-in-chief.
And he was not done.
Paul criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg following the indictment of former President Donald Trump, stating that Bragg could be forced out of office and into court himself, as reported by Martin Walsh for Conservative Brief.
“Wonder if DA Bragg remembers Durham DA Mike Nifong who withheld exculpatory DNA tests on the Duke lacrosse players. He was subsequently forced out of office, disbarred, and convicted of contempt of court,” Paul said, referring to Nifong, the district attorney in the 2006 case accusing Duke University lacrosse players of rape. The three players were exonerated and Nifong even spent one day in jail.
“An indictment of Trump would be a revolting abuse of authority. “The district attorney should be imprisoned,” Paul said in a separate statement just before the indictment news broke late last week.
After former President Donald Trump appeared in Manhattan on Tuesday for his arraignment in the case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced that Congress will take action.
Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges alleging he falsified business records related to the hush-money case involving pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels. A Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump in a case involving his alleged involvement in hush money payments to Daniels prior to the 2016 election, purportedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair they had in 2006.

“Alvin Bragg is attempting to interfere in our democratic process by invoking federal law to bring politicized charges against President Trump, admittedly using federal funds, while at the same time arguing that the peoples’ representatives in Congress lack jurisdiction to investigate this farce. Not so. Bragg’s weaponization of the federal justice process will be held accountable by Congress,” McCarthy tweeted. CONTINUE READING…
