House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) responded to reports of a possible forthcoming indictment of former President Donald Trump with a counter-investigation, further probing the alleged weaponization and politicization of the government against conservatives.
Late Friday, word began circulating that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) had begun preparing law enforcement for the possibility that, as early as Tuesday, Trump could be arrested on charges related to an alleged hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels linked to an alleged affair.
Saturday morning, McCarthy reacted to the unprecedented possibility of an American president being handcuffed and perp walked by instructing that relevant committees probe whether Bragg’s office, in pursuing what could be a partisan investigation meant to sway voter opinion of a political candidate, was the beneficiary of federal funding toward that end.
“Here we go again,” the speaker posted on Twitter calling out Bragg’s record of soft-on-crime policies, “an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.”
“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” McCarthy added.

The Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee also responded to potential charges being brought against Trump with a snide comment on the priorities of district attorneys like Bragg.
“Don’t worry, Liberal DA’s are working just as hard to indict actual criminals in Democrat-run cities. Just kidding,” they added. “It’s all politics.”
As previously reported, the president himself took to Truth Social to voice his opposition to the “CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL” DA looking to meet with law enforcement agencies to prepare for the possible indictment where Secret Service would take the lead.
“NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLT POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH AS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULL DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK,” he wrote.
Since then, Trump has gone on to share a post likening what is happening in Bragg’s office to Russian collusion investigations and re-upped his calls for protests.
“IT’S TIME!!! WE ARE A NATION IN STEEP DECLINE, BEING LED INTO WORLD WAR III BY A CROOKED POLITICIAN WHO DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HE’S ALIVE,” the president began, “BUT WHO IS SURROUNDED BY EVIL & SINISTER PEOPLE WHO, BASED ON THEIR ACTIONS ON DEFUNDING THE POLICE, DESTROYING OUR MILITARY, OPEN BORDERS, NO VOTER I.D., INFLATION, RAISING TAXES, & MUCH MORE, CAN ONLY HATE OUR NOW FAILING USA.”
“WE JUST CAN’T ALLOW THIS ANYMORE. THEY’RE KILLING OUR NATION AS WE SIT BACK & WATCH,” Trump continued. “WE MUST SAVE AMERICA!PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST!!!”
