(TheConservativeNews.org) – House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Saturday accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of “an outrageous abuse of power” after former President Donald Trump claimed that he will be arrested on Tuesday.
The California Republican called for congress to immediately investigate potential election interference carried out through “politically motivated prosecutions” targeting Mr. Trump.
“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” Mr. McCarthy wrote in a Twitter post on Saturday. “I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”
McCarthy’s tweet came after Trump suggested, in an early morning Saturday post on Truth Social, that he will be arrested on Tuesday as the Manhattan District Attorney appears likely to charge him in the probe into a “hush-money payment” made to Stormy Daniels in 2006.
In a post on Truth Social on Saturday, Trump called for his supporters to protest what he said is a politically driven indictment over alleged hush money payments in 2016.
Fox News released this bombshell report on Friday:
“We are learning that the Manhattan DA’s office has asked for a meeting with law enforcement ahead of a potential Trump indictment. This is coming to Fox News from a source in the courts. The meeting, which was requested yesterday and has not been set yet, is to discuss logistics for some time next week, which would mean that they are anticipating an indictment next week. The same source familiar with the planning said they will go over security preparations in and around the courthouse in lower Manhattan. Secret service will take the lead in what they will allow or will not allow.”
