Ted Cruz Furious At Manhattan DA's 'Political Persecution' Of Trump

 March 21, 2023

What is Alvin Bragg thinking?

All an arrest of Donald Trump is going to do is fire up his fan base like never before and convince the rest of America that liberals have been unfairly targeting him all along.

"The case from the Manhattan District Attorney, if they bring an indictment and charge him, is utter and complete crap…It is flimsy. It is weak," Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said. "It has been rejected by prosecutor after prosecutor after prosecutor. And it is obviously political retribution and a political persecution."

"Bragg hates Donald Trump. Now he has a right to hate Donald Trump. But he doesn’t have a right to abuse and corrupt the justice system to persecute his political opponents. And that, sadly, is exactly what he’s doing here," he added.

Earlier in the week, Mike Pence voiced his displeasure as well:

It reeks of the kind of political prosecution that that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call.
