Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan (R-OH) criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Tuesday for his intention at the time to indict former President Donald Trump for falsifying business records related to a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
“I mean, think about it. It’s President Trump for this,” he said. “It was going after parents who showed up at school board meetings. If you’re a traditional Catholic, you were labeled a domestic extremist. If you’re pro-life, you’re targeted by this Justice Department. So, I mean, if they can do it to a president, they can do it to anybody. And they are – that’s the scary thing."
Jordan questioned the timing of the assumed indictment, which he thinks is a political stunt aimed at derailing Trump's 2024 presidential hopes.
"And then, when you think about this prosecutor, understand the Department of Justice didn’t take this case, the Federal District of New York didn’t take this case. Cy Vance, the former district attorney, didn’t take this case. And even Alvin Bragg, when he got the job, didn’t take the case,” he argued.
“He only is now taking the case and bringing the case forward because of what, because Donald Trump announced he’s running for president, and he’s winning in every single poll,” Jordan added. “This is political, and the country sees it for what it is.”
Indeed, Trump's support has surged since news broke about the possible indictment, and the more they try to indict him, the worse it's going to get for Democrats.
