WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Rudy Yakym III and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita are voicing their opposition to the criminal indictment of former President Donald Trump by George Soros backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The indictment was announced yesterday following a leak from the Grand Jury hearing the case.
"Weaponizing state power to target political opponents is the stuff of banana republics, not the greatest nation on Earth." The Congressman from Indiana's 2nd District wrote in a statement. "Every American should be alarmed and troubled by today's politically motivated announcement at the hands of a radical, progressive prosecutor who allows violent criminals to have free rein on the streets of New York. This is deeply misguided decision will only further erode trust in our core civic institutions and electoral system. Going forward, cooler heads -- not partisan politics -- must prevail so that we can maintain americans' faith in equal justice and the rule of law tradition so essential to our constitutional republic."
"The political establishment using their powers to indict a former president and current political opponent sets a dangerous precedent. The last thing that should ever happen in this country is the prevention of voters to freely decide who their leaders should be by weaponizing the system." Attorney General Rokita wrote in a statement. "The left's prosecutors let violent felons out of jail, refuse to prosecute violent crime, and then go after candidates like President Trump to win their political battles. We must stand strong against this type of abuse of power, or they will continue doing it to others less equipped to defend themselves."
The indictment revolves around alleged hush money paid to pornstar Stormy Daniels during Trump's presidential campaign in 2016 that was attached to a Non-Disclosure Agreement. There is nothing illegal about an NDA. The Federal Elections Commission already investigated the allegations and declared no crime was committed. Further, it appears the statute of limitations has already expired.
Trump is currently the leading candidate on the 2024 presidential ticket.
