One of President Donald Trump’s most vicious enemies in the Republican Party has actually taken his side in the case brought against by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, a former Republican presidential candidate, is furious with the case, even as he took another jab at the former president.
“I believe President Trump’s character and conduct make him unfit for office. Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda. No one is above the law, not even former presidents, but everyone is entitled to equal treatment under the law. The prosecutor’s overreach sets a dangerous precedent for criminalizing political opponents and damages the public’s faith in our justice system,” he said.
“The charges and evidence will be duly considered and the outcome decided by a jury with an obligation to fulfill its responsibility with the utmost care and impartiality. The American voters will ultimately render their own judgment on the former President’s political future.
