45th President Donald Trump unleashed a new series of Truth Social posts aimed at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is reportedly planning to arrest the former president this Tuesday.
Trump posted yesterday that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday, and soon after CNN and other mainstream media sources described how the Secret Service would deposit him at a courthouse to be processed this week.
Now, Trump is stepping up his attacks on Bragg, a left wing prosecutor who received financial support from international financier George Soros.
“I find it very hard to believe that a racist, Soros backed D.A., who lets murderers, rapists, and drug dealers walk free, and who presided over the biggest violent crime wave in the history of NYC, is using the power of his office to prosecute, indict, and prosecute a former President of the United States of America – for no crime!” He added, “The witch hunt never ends, but we will Make America Great again!’
In a second post, Trump denied the existence of any crime or wrongdoing, and again stressed that the action was politically motivated – potentially based on orders from the Biden White House.
“There was no ‘misdemeanor’ here either,” Trump wrote. “There was no crime, period. All other of the many Democrat law enforcement officers looked at it, took a pass.”
He explained, “So did Cy Vance, and so did Bragg. But then, much later, he changed his mind. Gee, I wonder why?”
“Prosecutorial Misconduct and Interference with an Election,” wrote Trump. “Investigate the investigators!”
Yesterday House Speaker Kevin McCarthy promised to do exactly this, and announced he is opening an investigation into Bragg and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office over their handling of the case.
“I am directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” McCarthy said yesterday, on the heels of news regarding the impending arrest.
