Trump drags out 'witch-hunt' narrative again for Manhattan DA over indictment rumors

As expected, former President Donald Trump has dragged out his often-used "witch-hunt" narrative to hit back at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) ahead of a rumored indictment over an allegedly illegal payment Trump is said to have made to porn star Stormy Daniels to hide an alleged affair.

"President Donald J. Trump is completely innocent, he did nothing wrong, and even the biggest, most Radical Left Democrats are making that clear," the Truth Social statement from Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung read. "From Russia, Russia, Russia, to the Mueller Hoax, to Impeachment Hoaxes 1 and 2, and even the Unlawful Mar-a-Lago Raid, Democrats have investigated and attacked President Trump since before he was elected - and they've failed every time."

"The latest Witch-Hunt is being brought on by George Soros-backed Radical Left Democrat prosecutor Alvin Bragg," Cheung continued. "Everyone knows it's a sham. In fact, the Department of Justice stocked the DA's office with top people from DC to help 'Get Trump' at a local level."

Trump has used the witch-hunt narrative often, and even his most ardent detractors can't deny that Democrats and even some Republicans have gone after him harder than most.

Liberal legal scholar Alan Dershowitz has been put in the position of defending Trump many times and said of this latest attempt at indictment that it was "highly questionable" and "selective prosecution" because others who had done similar things were not prosecuted.

Democrats are hoping to keep Trump out of office with an indictment, either by forcing him to drop out of the race or by a conviction that would preclude him from running. What are they scared of?
