Zeldin Says He Would’ve Fired Alvin Bragg On Day One As Governor
Former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Saturday as former President Donald Trump expects arrest.
“Alvin Bragg could very well be the most dangerous, divisive, incompetent and compromised district attorney in America. On my FIRST day, my FIRST action as governor would have been to tell Bragg that he was fired”, Zeldin writing in a social media post.
Early Saturday, Trump announced he expected to be arrested this week based on “unlawful leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, Ashley Oliver of Breitbart News reported.
The bureau is investigating his alleged role in the money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.
In a statement, Trump, who is running for president again in 2024, said:
ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM CORRUPTED AND HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT LAW OFFICE, WHICH HELPED SET NEW RECORDS OF VIOLENT CRIME AND WHOSE HEAD IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT NO CRIME CAN BE PROVEN , AND BASED ON A FORMER AND FULLY DEBUNKED (BY MANY OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE BACK OUR NATION!
It was not yet known what the criminal charges against him would be.
Oliver added:[R]Reports on Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case involving porn star Daniels and the former president have indicated in recent weeks that a charging decision may be close.
In August, Zeldin, who was the Republican candidate for state governor, promised to fire Bragg if elected.
“I will RELEASE Alvin Bragg as soon as I take office as the next Governor of New York in January,” he wrote in a social media post.
I will RELEASE Alvin Bragg immediately upon taking office as the next Governor of New York in January!

Bragg was elected thanks to a campaign contribution from Soros, who is a Democratic billionaire mega-donor. Soros has funded left-wing district attorney candidates across the country.
“Despite Bragg campaigning on a ‘pro-jailbreak agenda’ that sought to end prosecutions for various crimes, Manhattanites voted overwhelmingly to install Bragg as district attorney,” according to Breitbart News .
In reaction to Zeldin’s recent post, followers voiced their thoughts on Bragg, a person in writing“The Soros-Funded Marxist Tyrant Must Go!”
“Yet another example of the seriousness of Lee not being named [sic] Governor. Bragg would have been long gone by now,” another replied.
