On Saturday, former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) supported former President Donald J. Trump and called the prosecution’s case against him “very political.”
“Bragg’s predecessor chose not to pursue the matter. The matter was not taken up by the Justice Department. Bush wrote that Bragg initially stated he would not take on the matter.”
“This is not a question of justice, it’s very political. Let the jurors decide this issue,” he continued.
On Thursday, a grand jury in New York handed down an accusation against Trump, which will be kept under secrecy until the 45th president is brought before a judge. In order to arrange a submission, which is anticipated to happen next week, Bragg’s office verified that he had gotten in touch with Trump’s legal representative. According to CNN, Trump is charged with more than 30 counts of business fraud. The case centers on claimed hush money payments made to porn actress Stormy Daniels in 2016. This information has been widely released.
The matter has been criticized widely. Professor of law Jonathan Turley at George Washington University has called it “legally pathetic,” and like Bush, he has emphasized that prior federal and state attorneys under Bragg’s predecessor decided not to pursue it. Numerous well-known Republicans have branded the D.A. pursuit of the case by the agency as “politically motivated.”
Trump criticized the charge and called it “an act of obvious Election Interference,” calling it “political persecution as well as election interference at the highest possible level in history.”
After the indictment, Trump adviser Jason Miller told presenter Matthew Boyle on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News that “President Trump’s in great spirits.”
“It’s just remarkable how he perseveres in the face of difficulty and how he has been doing this ever since he descended the golden elevator at Trump Tower. No one else in history has ever been able to accomplish this, and the more they fight him, the more powerful he becomes,” Miller continued.
In 2016, as they competed for the Republican primary against a crowded group of rivals, Trump and Bush engaged in an epic battle. Even though there were a lot of heated exchanges, their friendship goes beyond their interactions on the campaign route and debate stage. After former President George H.W. Bush passed away in 2018, Jeb claimed to have gotten a call from Trump who “could not have been nicer,” according to Breitbart News.
