Trump’s statement “I will be arrested” confused the country
Republicans and Democrats clashed after former US President Donald Trump announced he could be arrested next week.
Former US President Donald Trump shared on his social media account that New York’s Manhattan District Attorney’s Office could have him arrested on Tuesday, causing controversy in Washington.
Referring to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Speaker of the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy made a statement on his Twitter account, “Here we go again, the abuse of power by a radical prosecutor unleashing violent criminals in his pursuit of political vengeance against President Trump… With politically motivated cases. “I am directing the relevant committees to immediately investigate whether federal funds are being used to disrupt our democracy by interfering with the elections,” he said.
Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of Trump’s key supporters in Congress, tweeted, “Biden’s Department of Justice, in collaboration with the Democratic Manhattan Attorney, is working to arrest Donald Trump, the most prominent Republican Presidential candidate in 2024, and give him a fake ex. trying to sue with an accusation. This is purely political. This is what communist countries do to destroy their political rivals!” used his statements.
Stating that the Republicans in the House of Representatives have the necessary power to intervene in this situation, Greeene noted that the budget of the Department of Justice could be suspended.
Matt Gaetz, one of Trump’s supporters in the House of Representatives, tweeted, “The financial breach of the election campaign is about either illegally spending other people’s money or taking money you shouldn’t have in your campaign. Trump did neither of these. He used his own money, which is not related to the campaign, for a special deal.”
Gaetz noted that the indictment was based on “unreliable” and “falsified legal theory”, and that an attempt to arrest Trump would be an absurd accusation of abusing politics.
Texas representative Republican Chip Roy, who supported Ron DeSantis for the 2024 presidential nomination, also made statements to support Trump on Twitter.
“President Trump’s impending impeachment in New York should be treated with compulsion as a political prosecution based on complex legal theory. This clearly demonstrates the danger of a politicized system of ‘justice’ that will be weaponized against all Americans.” used his statements.
SUPPORT FROM PELOSI TO THE COURT
On the other hand, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Democrat Nancy Pelosi supported the court.
Pelosi said on Twitter, “Whatever decision the grand jury makes, it’s clear that even the former President of the United States is not above the law. The ex-president’s statement this morning was irresponsible. It was done to keep itself in the spotlight and to cause unrest among its supporters. He can’t get away from breaking the law, disrespecting elections, and inciting violence. Rightly so, our legal system will decide how to make it accountable.”
ELON MUSK INCLUDED IN THE DISCUSSION
One of the explanations for Trump’s sharing came from Twitter’s owner, Elon Musk.
Under the news that Trump could be arrested, Musk said, “If this happens, Trump will return with a much greater victory.”
Former President Trump announced that he could be arrested on Tuesday next week in connection with the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation and therefore called for protests to his supporters.
Manhattan District Attorney Bragg is reportedly preparing to file a lawsuit against Trump over a $130,000 payment to **** star Stormy Daniels.
It was alleged that Daniels had an affair with Trump before he entered the presidential race and received a $130,000 sh*t before the 2016 presidential election. (AA)
