On Thursday, the radical leftist Manhattan DA made good on his campaign promise and indicted the Former U.S. President & current 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump.After years of witchunts. the Russia Hoax, TWO politically-motivated impeachments and a raid on his personal home, the New York Grand Jury has thrown together a legally incoherent case in an attempt to imprison the Republican frontrunner for President. Kari Lake released the following statement:
“This is a dark moment in the history of our nation. As the radical left and their weaponized criminal justice system have crossed all legal and ethical lines in an attempt to destroy the 45th and likely 47th President of the United State of America Donald J. Trump.
Jailing your political opponents based on frivolous politically-motivated accusations is something that you’d expect to see out of third-world dictatorships or banana republics.
And now, after a relentless assault on our beloved United States Constitution and our institutional norms, the radical left has accelerated this country’s decline into a broken system that allows for the political persecution of ANYONE who threatens the status quo.
There is no crime here.
Donald J Trump denies any wrongdoing. He has produced numerous pieces of evidence from the Grand Jury’s star witnesses (Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen) refuting these accusations. It is also quite clear that the only potential wrongdoing here would be an FEC crime punishable by a fine not potential imprisonment.
This political prosecution should receive bipartisan condemnation. The precedent this sets threatens to further divide a country that already seems to be on the verge of tearing itself apart.
I stand unequivocally beside President Donald J Trump and in defense of the rule of law.
I am calling on all others to do the same.”
