House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Saturday called for an immediate investigation after former President Donald Trump confirmed he would be arrested next week based on “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
“Here we go again – an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk while he seeks political revenge against President Trump,” McCarthy said.
“I am instructing the relevant committees to immediately investigate whether federal funds are being used to undermine our democracy by interfering with elections through politically motivated prosecutions,” the spokesperson added.

McCarthy’s call for an investigation followed Trump making waves, stating on Truth Social that he believes he will be arrested as a result of what he described as “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan attorney general’s office — a reference to the case of Manhattan Democratic Rep. Alvin Bragg. related to porn star Stormy Daniels and the allegation that Trump pressured his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, into making “hush-up” payments to Daniels on Trump’s behalf.
Our nation is now third world and dying. The American dream is dead! The radical left-wing anarchists stole our presidential elections, and with them they stole the heart of our country. American subjects are captured and held captive like animals, while criminals and leftists are allowed to roam the streets, killing and burning without any compensation. Millions stream through our open boardrooms, our many prisons and mental institutions. Crime and inflation are destroying our way of life…
Page 2: Now an illegal leak from the corrupt and highly political Manhattan district attorney’s office, which has allowed new records to be set in violent crime and whose leader is funded by George Soros, is not mentioned, with reference to it. Based on a totally honest old fashioned story (by a number of other lawyers!), the far-away leading Republican nominee and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday of next week. Protest, bring back our home!
A Trump spokesperson explained that “there has been no notification, other than illegal leaks from the Justice Department and the DA’s office, to NBC and other fake news companies, that the George Soros-funded, radical left-wing Democratic attorney general in Manhattan has decided to take his witch-hunt to the next level.” “.
President Trump is rightly highlighting his innocence and weaponizing our system of injustice. He will be in Texas next weekend to a huge crowd. Make America Great Again! added the speaker.
However, the rumor has rallied governors across the board to support Trump and speak out against the politicization of the justice system:
We cannot reward left-wing tyrants, who weaponize government to capture their political enemies, by putting anyone but Trump in the White House in 2024. What is happening is the crap of a Third World banana republic and Republicans must stand up to it.
Fight fire with fire.

Several reporters have asked me if the indictment would cause me to revoke my endorsement of Donald Trump. The answer: hell no. A politically motivated prosecution makes Trump’s argument stronger. We simply do not have a real state if justice depends on politics.

The arrest of the leader of the opposition party is the characteristic step of the socialist and authoritarian regimes of the Third World. Moreover, this is always done in the name of “anti-corruption” and “the rule of law.” #TrumpIndictment

Convicting Trump would be a national disaster. It is un-American for the ruling party to use the police force to arrest its political opponents. If in 2004 the Republican Attorney General had used a campaign finance technique to arrest then-candidate John Kerry while Bush and Cheney were at… https://t.co/vRIDRLRuha

Alvin Bragg may be the most dangerous, divided, incompetent, and endangered district attorney in America. On the first day, my first action as governor was to tell Prague he was going to be expelled.
