Stefanik tears up Trump’s potential indictment: Attempt to silence voters
House Republican Conference Speaker Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the first House or Senate leadership to endorse former President Donald Trump’s candidacy for president, tears up the arrest anticipated by Trump as a politically motivated attack by “left-wing prosecutors like Alvin Bragg and their socialist allies” because Democrats “can’t beat President Trump at the polls.”
In a statement on Saturday, Stefanik warned that any impeachment would ultimately bolster Trump with support ahead of the 2024 election cycle. “What these corrupt left-wing prosecutors like Alvin Bragg and their socialist allies don’t understand is that America’s premier patriots have never been more motivated to exercise their constitutional rights to peacefully organize and VOTE at the polls to save our great republic,” she said.
“It’s not American and the radical left has hit a dangerous new low in third world countries,” Stefanik continued. “Knowing they can’t beat President Trump at the polls, the radical left will now follow the example of socialist dictators and arrest President Trump, the leading Republican candidate for President of the United States.”
Stefanik also explained that Trump’s expectation to be arrested on Tuesday “is just the continuation of the shameful and unconstitutional pattern dating back to the illegal Russian collusion hoax to try to silence and suppress the will of voters who support the president. Trump and America first.” Movement.”
On Saturday, Trump said he expected to be arrested on Tuesday based on “unlawful leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which is investigating Trump’s alleged role in the money paid to Stormy Daniels.
In 2022, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg reduced 52% of all felony charges to misdemeanor
Now it’s elevating a misdemeanor to a felony the feds refused to prosecute to charge President Trump.
The criminals are free. Political opponents go to jail.

Legal experts believe the prosecutor’s case against Trump is fragile. “The case is legally pathetic,” said Jonathan Turley, Shapiro professor of public interest law at George Washington University.
“Bragg is struggling to twist state laws to effectively prosecute a federal case long ago dismissed by the Justice Department against Trump over his payment of ‘silence money’ to the former stripper Stormy Daniels,” he wrote in the Hill. “It is extremely difficult to show that paying money to cover up an embarrassing affair was done for electoral purposes as opposed to a range of other obvious reasons, from protecting a celebrity’s reputation to preserving ‘a marriage.”
