As the Manhattan District Attorney's office gears up to arrest former President Donald Trump, a former Democrat Governor is openly criticizing the whole situation.
"Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) spoke out against reports that the Manhattan district attorney’s office is gearing up to arrest former President Donald Trump, arguing that arresting a former president would make for 'banana republic politics,'" reported Breitbart.
"Arresting Presidents and Governors for trumped up crimes is banana republic politics," Blagojevich said.
I'm not sure if he meant to insert that "trumped up" pun, but it's funny.
"He also said our Republic has not been in this much danger since the start of the Civil War and insisted that the prosecutors investigating Trump are 'the real insurrectionists,'" reported Breitbart.
"Not since S. Carolina fired shots against Ft. Sumter has our Republic been in such danger," Blagojevich said.
"Weaponized prosecutors who use the power entrusted to them to target people based on politics, and get away with it, are the real insurrectionists of our time," Blagojevich added.
"They are destroying what Lincoln called the last best hope for freedom on earth. Americans of ALL parties should oppose this. #Political Persecution," Blagojevich tweeted.
Blagojevich’s statement comes amid speculation that George Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will arrest Trump this week. The arrest would come amid an investigation into Trump for his alleged role in hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
