Democrats Already Regretting Trump’s Arrest?

Democrats are a joke.

On Wednesday Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) declined to say whether he believed in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) ahead of a possible indictment of former President Trump. 

When asked about how confident in Bragg he was, Schumer said that “it’s premature to comment on what’s happening and we’ll have to wait and see what he does.”

Schumer has been trying to maintain some distance from Bragg’s investigation which could result in Trump being indicted for his role in the $130,000 hush money payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their alleged affair. Trump has repeatedly denied the affair. The payment was made by Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, who has pleaded guilty to charges connected to the hush payment. However, other prosecutors so far had declined to press any charges against Trump in this case.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who is up for reelection in 2024 warned that if charges are brought against Trump then that could potentially backfire for Democrats as it might look like they are using the court in order to harm their political opponents.

Manchin told reporters that there are many reasons why one should not support Trump or why he should not be the President again, but that does not mean you should let “the court system (to) be viewed as a political pawn.”

He added that an indictment would most likely have the opposite effect than the one people are hoping for.
