The former US leader is accused of allegedly paying porn actress Stormy Daniels a large sum of money in the middle of the 2016 presidential campaign to keep her from revealing their past affair. Trump stressed that the Manhattan district attorney’s office, by going after him, is simply carrying out a political order. All of this is done to prevent the billionaire from running in the upcoming presidential election. Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, has a similar view. “This is happening again: outrageous negligence by a radicalized district attorney releasing dangerous criminals in an attempt to settle a political score with former President Trump,” the Republican said. McCarthy promised to investigate whether public funds were being used to undermine the democratic system by interfering in elections through politically motivated prosecution, using the relevant committees.
It should be noted that Alvin Bragg, US Attorney for the US District of New York, whose office is conducting the trial against Trump, indicated that he would not tolerate any intimidation attempts and would end the investigation. Bragg’s insistence is understandable. His office is elective and he himself represents the United States Democratic Party. At the same time, Trump himself wrote on his account that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is financed by American financier George Soros. In turn, the billionaire and successful businessman Elon Musk addressed the assessment of the current situation outside the box. In his opinion, if Donald Trump ends up behind bars, this will only boost the politician’s ratings and ultimately ensure him a landslide victory in the 2024 presidential election.
