There’s been a lot of talk about Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg reportedly considering criminal charges against former President Donald Trump over his campaign payout to keep his (alleged) affair with former porn star Stormy Daniels under wraps. Now, I’ve already discussed at great length why I don’t believe such charges would stick – especially since what some call a “payoff” is far from illegal. But Senator Rand Paul recently suggested another action for Bragg’s consideration of action.
Recently, Paul suggested on Twitter that it’s not Trump who should be an order of arrest, but rather Bragg himself. “A Trump indictment would be a disgusting abuse of power,” he said. “The DA should be put in jail.”
Now, ever since Senator Paul tweeted out the message, he’s been met with a great deal of criticism. People have responded to him noting how he’s “off base,” and some even suggested that he doesn’t “deserve your high office.” But is this suggestion by Paul really that far “off base”? Let’s take a closer look at the bigger picture.
President Joe Biden and his administration have been after Trump for the longest time ever since he departed office a couple of years ago. You may recall last year, when the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) led a baseless “raid” on his Mar-a-Lago compound, in an effort to find what they deemed “classified documents.”
If that wasn’t enough, Trump has been the target of attacks left and right, with the Democrats and Biden’s administration threatening to chip away his credibility. Now, we have Bragg, who, according to Trump’s post on Truth Social, is targeting him for an arrest. Though one did not take place on Tuesday as predicted, some believe it’s only a matter of time.
Still not convinced? Let’s take an even closer look at what happened with Biden. His son, Hunter, has been bringing all sorts of attention to himself surrounding his infamous laptop. And yet, have any charges been filed his way? Nope. Absolutely none. And this is despite the many reports indicating what he’s been doing with this laptop, or, rather, who he’s been doing it with.
Not to mention the number of claims made against Biden’s justice departments, particularly the FBI. Several whistleblowers have come forward talking about how the Bureau has monitored innocent parents who made online claims, as well as potential targets based on their religion (in this case, Christianity). Of course, FBI director Christopher Wray has brushed off the claims, but we’ve been seeing more and more proof stack up.
So, in spite of so many people thinking that Paul isn’t fit for office, he may just be on to something. His reported plans to press criminal charges against Trump for something that’s not even considered criminal is absolutely heinous.
What’s more, if these charges actually come to light, he’s going to force hard-working police officers to act on said orders, putting the cuffs on Trump and bringing him in on these ridiculous charges. That’s not just a slap to the face of Lady Liberty, but also the police officers themselves. And, honestly, haven’t they been through enough over the past couple of years between what’s happened with their budgets and the fallout from those nightmarish “defund the police” campaigns? Enough is enough already.
To sum up, yes, I do believe the officers that are given the arrest order shouldn’t follow through, based solely on the rules of “not delivering justice.” I think this should be given a much closer look before Bragg issues his charges based upon what Biden, his administration and justice departments want to do. In doing so, I believe we’ll uncover just what kind of injustice is being done here, and the cuffs can go on someone far more deserving. And if that means Bragg, so be it.
Something has to be done. Because the wings of liberty are likely to wither to the bone if a miscarriage of justice on this level takes place. Call Paul crazy all you want, but what he’s tweeting isn’t nonsense in the least.
