Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., He blasted the political impeachment of former President Donald Trump on “Ingraham’s Angel” Thursday night, hours after he was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury.
The Florida congressman said Manhattan Attorney General Alvin Bragg’s decision to continue “this horrible manhunt” against Trump is “obviously political” and “frivolous,” adding that it “seems to leave the nation on edge.”
Gaetz reminded viewers that Bragg is a backing DA left-wing billionaire George Soros, from Donated $1 million for his campaign while Bragg promised to continue the attacks on the former president by the Manhattan DA office.
“We will wake up in a very different America tomorrow because we can no longer have moral authority against tyrants and autocrats who have always found it easier to imprison their political opponents than to contest them in free and fair elections,” Gates said.
Gates was also criticized President Joe Biden for not speaking out against the pending indictment, accusing him of encouraging stalking with his rhetoric against Republicans.
“He functionally threw away this indictment by saying that radical MAGA Republicans were dangerous,” Gates told Ingraham.
He added that the Chinese Communist Party could give money to various members of the Biden family over the years, but that these payments could not be made to Stormy Daniels “to resolve a legal dispute.”
“They will have to prove that Donald Trump would have no reason, other than the election, to try to solve this problem with Stormy Daniels in private and out of the public sphere,” he said.
Gaetz said he believes the next step will be a dismissal movement.
“By a two-to-one margin, Americans think this is not based on law and facts, but ugly, ugly policy,” Gates said, referring to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.
Although the charges against Trump have not been disclosed, the indictment is believed to stem from silent financial payments prior to the 2016 presidential election.
Those payments include $130,000 paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and $150,000 paid to the former Playboy model. Karen McDougalFox News Digital, I learned.
bribe payments It was disclosed and passed on to both McDougal and Daniels by Fox News in 2018. These payments have been investigated by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York chose not to charge Trump in connection with Daniels’ payments in 2019, even when Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen implicated him as part of a plea bargain.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has also dropped its investigation into the matter in 2021.
