House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took to Twitter on Sunday to declare that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is “abusing his office” by going after former President Trump, while Democrats, including Bragg, are allowing crime to run rampant.
“Alvin Bragg is abusing his office to target President Trump while he’s reduced a majority of felonies, including violent crimes, to misdemeanors. He has different rules for political opponents,” McCarthy wrote following Trump saying he believes he will be arrested this coming week after “illegal leaks.”
“Republicans stopped the radical DC crime law, and we will investigate any use of federal funds that are used to facilitate the perversion of justice by Soros-backed DA’s across the country,” McCarthy also noted. He was referring to Congress passing a disapproval resolution that ultimately killed the Washington, DC, soft-on-crime criminal code revision legislation.
McCarthy also called for “relevant committees to immediately investigate” if Bragg is using federal funds to “subvert our democracy by interfering in elections” by going after the former president, who had already announced he would be making another White House bid in 2024.
“An outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” Mcarthy added.
