Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., stood firm in his support for President Donald Trump over the weekend amid news that the Manhattan district attorney’s office is poised to indict the 45th president in relation to years-old allegations surrounding the tired Stormy Daniels case.

“Alvin Bragg is abusing his office to target President Trump while he’s reduced a majority of felonies, including violent crimes, to misdemeanors,” McCarthy stated on Twitter. “He has different rules for political opponents. Republicans stopped the radical DC crime law, and we will investigate any use of federal funds that are used to facilitate the perversion of justice by Soros-backed DA’s across the country.”

On Monday, the speaker further addressed the DA’s possible move to indict President Trump later this week, slamming the politicized legal attack.

“It doesn’t matter if it was President Trump or if this was a Democrat,” he told the press. “It should be equal justice in America, and stop going after people because you have political differences. I see people all the time that I have political differences with. I respect their opinion. I may disagree with it, but why would you ever try to use the law for it? And it goes against everything that this Manhattan DA has professed. He brags about lowering felonies to misdemeanors and not prosecuting.”

McCarthy continued, “We’ve watched crime in New York where people are afraid to walk the streets. We watched campaigns and I will tell you, one of the reasons we won races in New York is based upon this DA – of not protecting the citizens of New York. And now he’s spending his time on this?

On Saturday, President Trump confirmed rumors that “ILLEGAL LEAKS” from the Manhattan DA’s office seemed to indicate that he could be arrested “ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.”

Trump noted that there was “NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN.” He also pointed out that any indictment would be “BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE…”
