According to a report, Republicans in the House have been complaining for months about leftist county prosecutors who they say are letting violent criminals go free while prosecuting political adversaries like President Trump. They are starting to coalesce behind a potential remedy that could severely penalize negligent DAs.
Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga), who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, explained that some Republicans are contemplating turning the tables in a fight initiated a few years ago by liberals who sought to remove the qualified immunity that shielded police officers from lawsuits.
After months of reducing severe offenses against other criminals, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg sought charges against Trump, and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy vowed Thursday that Congress would take some measures to penalize Bragg.
Kimberly Gardner, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney, who received funding from Soros, was recently sacked by Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and has been chastised by Missouri’s highest court for misbehavior in a case. She’s fighting the decision.
According to a report, Alan Dershowitz, a former professor at Harvard, says that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s plan to charge the former President with a crime for allegedly paying settlement money to an adult movie actress is worse than Al Capone’s case. He refers to how police finally put the Chicago gangster in jail for tax evasion.
Dershowitz said this was more severe than the case of Al Capone, who was sentenced to prison for failure to pay taxes. In Capone’s case, they at least got him for actual tax violations.
According to Dershowitz, the Trump investigation is even more ridiculous since the prosecutor is trying to go after a felony and misdemeanor that are far outside their limitation periods and were not pursued by the prior district attorney or the Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to an article from The Daily Mail, Bragg received over $1 million from Color Of Change PAC for his election campaign in 2021, which George Soros funds.
Former Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, and LA County DA George Gascon are just a few of the progressive prosecutors who have received substantial campaign contributions from Soros.
