Trump Indictment is Abuse of Power
and Perversion of Justice
Manhattan DA’s pathetic political obsession must be called out
Today, Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, for his unethical perversion of the rule of law in the indictment of former President Donald J. Trump.
“Rather than doing his job to protect the people of New York City, Alvin Bragg is abusing his power choosing to play politics instead serving the people counting on him to keep them safe.” said Nance. “It is no surprise left-wing billionaire George Soros gave Bragg $1 million in his last campaign.
“This year Bragg’s office downgraded 52% of felonies to misdemeanors and declined to prosecute 35 percent of felony cases. Yet he wastes time and resources on pursuing a political opponent President Trump for something his predecessor agreed was pointless in a probe more than 5 years ago.
“The people of New York should be outraged that his soft-on-crime approach is ruining their beautiful city. Crime is soaring in New York City: serious assaults up 18%, rape is up 16%, robbery is up 9.4% and burglaries up 5.5%, yet the DA is more interested in a political vendetta than doing his job.
“Abuse of power and perversion of justice is an insult to the founders of our nation. When the justice system is used as a political weapon, hard-working, law-abiding citizens can no longer trust the institution.
“Trump’s opponents just can’t ‘quit’ him. They are obsessed and will do anything to try to damage him in the eyes of the American people. It hasn’t worked in the past and it won’t work this time, Americans see through this pathetic stunt. But what they are doing is inflicting great damage in American’s trust in our judicial system. Which is why we must fight against these unjust action.”
