Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy had an important message for the American public on Tuesday regarding District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the prosecutor in President Trump’s “hush money” trial in New York.

“What people really ought to be troubled by about this is Bragg isn’t just trying to enforce federal campaign finance law,” McCarthy told Fox News, “he’s making up his own federal campaign finance law because the two federal authorities that actually do have jurisdiction to investigate these, the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission, both looked at this and decided not to proceed against Trump…”

Laying out the reasons why the DOJ and FEC did not make a case against Trump themselves, McCarthy said it was “because these are not campaign expenditures, number one, and number two, even if you assume for argument’s sake that they were, the next reporting period after the Stormy Daniels payment, the non-disclosure agreement, wouldn’t have been until after the 2016 election, it would have been in 2017.”

“Bragg’s theory here is that Trump violated his version of the campaign finance laws in order to steal the 2016 election,” he continued. “That doesn’t make sense legally or factually.”

America First ally Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., also talked about Bragg’s non-existent basis for the “hush money” trial in an interview on Tuesday. In a scathing rebuke, Donalds called out the “political charade,” “farce,” and “kangaroo court,” among other terms, adding that “the statute of limitations has expired.”

“Even the FEC said nothing was there,” Donalds posted on X.

“You have a situation where they took some bookkeeping charge where, by the way, the statute of limitations has expired, they tried to weave in something dealing with election law when the FEC said there was nothing to see here. And all of a sudden there are 34 felonies in New York, give me a break, that is a travesty of justice,” said Donalds, who has steadfastly supported the 45th president.

Keenly summarizing the essence of all the radical left’s weaponization against President Trump, Donalds told Newsmax:

“This is about Donald Trump, but it’s not. If they could do this to Donald Trump, they could do this to any American. But the truth is, Alvin Bragg would not do this to any American, which means that this is selective prosecution, this is political interference. The American people see this for what it is and it should not be allowed to continue…”
