Pence Makes Bombshell Confession
During an interview aired on Sunday, former Vice President Mike Pence argued that any potential arrest of former President Trump in a case pursued by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office would be a prosecution driven by “political motives.”
According to The Hill, Over the past weekend, Trump explained via social media that he would face arrest concerning an inquiry regarding purported payments to Stormy Daniels to prevent her from disclosing information before the 2016 presidential election.
In the past few weeks, Pence has distanced himself from Trump, and in this instance, he criticized the prosecutor in charge of the hush money investigation as being part of the “radical left.”
Pence stated, “I’m taken aback at the idea of indicting a former president of the United States, at a time when there’s a crime wave in New York City. The fact that the Manhattan DA thinks that indicting President Trump is his top priority, I think … just tells you everything you need to know about the radical left in this country.”
Furthermore, Pence argued that if Trump were to be arrested due to the Manhattan inquiry, which the former president has referred to as “corrupt” and “extremely political,” it would be solely for political motives.
“It just feels like a politically charged prosecution here. And I, for my part, I just feel like it’s just not what the American people want to see,” Pence added.
