With the news that former president Donald Trump has been indicted by a New York City Grand Jury, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney is speaking out in defense of the 45th president.
In a press release, she said the decision is a “witch-hunt targeting President Donald Trump [which] is a political persecution with purely malicious intent.”
On Thursday, Trump was indicted for allegedly paying hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election.
Tenney’s full full statement can be read below:
“Soros-backed District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s witch-hunt targeting President Donald Trump is a political persecution with purely malicious intent,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “Bragg has repeatedly allowed violent criminals to walk the streets, downgrading 52% of felony charges to misdemeanors. Yet now he has decided to spend precious taxpayer dollars and resources on this outrageous case against Donald Trump, and only after he announced he was running for president. Every American should be concerned about this gross abuse of power and the politicized two-tiered system of justice we now have in America. I once again call on Governor Kathy Hochul to act. Uphold the rule of law and remove Alvin Bragg from office for, among other things, his failure to enforce the law and his blatant politicization of the criminal justice system. ”
