Senator Rand Paul expressed his outrage on social media following news that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose campaign was partially funded by a George Soros-backed organization, was nearing the indictment of former President Donald Trump. Paul adamantly suggested that the potential indictment is politically motivated.

As the Kentucky Republican noted on Twitter, “A Trump indictment would be a disgusting abuse of power. The DA should be put in jail.” Several prominent Republicans have joined forces to support the former president as he faces the possibility of being indicted over his involvement in hush-money payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election.

For example, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina argued that Bragg “has done more to help Donald Trump get elected president than any single person in America.” Nikki Haley, former Trump UN Ambassador and declared 2024 GOP presidential candidate, told Fox News, “I think what we know is, when you get into political prosecutions like this, it’s more about revenge than it is about justice.”

Even former Vice President Mike Pence, who has had a falling out with his former running mate, believes Bragg’s investigation is “politically motivated” and “not what the American people want to see.” Pence is reportedly considering a 2024 bid.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, another potential rival to Trump, also commented on the case. He highlighted the fact that the Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor and expressed his confusion regarding the hush-money payments to the adult film actress.

As the UK-based Daily Mail reported that Trump is likely to be indicted on Wednesday, Paul’s tweet serves as a reminder of the growing concern among Republicans. The former president, currently in Florida, will be charged officially, after which the Manhattan District Attorney’s office will contact Trump and his Secret Service detail to arrange his surrender.

Trump has admitted to reimbursing his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 payment to Daniels but insisted it was not connected to his campaign funds. The Trump Organization categorized the reimbursement to Cohen as a legitimate expenditure. Furthermore, it’s worth noting that Trump self-funded his first campaign.

In light of this news, Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung issued a statement to Fox News Digital, calling Bragg’s investigation a “witch hunt” and accusing him of being influenced by President Biden and “radical Democrats.”

Cheung said, “President Donald J. Trump is completely innocent, he did nothing wrong, and even the biggest, most Radical Left Democrats are making that clear.” He argued that the recent events are happening because Trump is leading in the polls against both Democrats and Republicans and that the indictment attempt is an unprecedented political move in American history.

Cheung continued to assert that Americans will not tolerate the radical left using the justice system to influence a presidential election. He warned that this move would backfire massively for the Democratic Party and result in disgrace for the nation.

The growing concern among Republicans is a clear indication that they believe this investigation is more about revenge than justice. As the situation unfolds, it’s essential to prioritize the integrity of the American justice system and prevent it from becoming a tool for political vendettas.
