McCarthy Orders Investigation into Whether Federal Tax Dollars Were Used for Trump Arrest Case

Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has ordered an investigation to determine whether federal taxpayer money was used to fund the case behind President Donald Trump’s anticipated arrest this week.

McCarthy was responding to reports that Trump will be arrested on Tuesday by George Soros’ Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

As Slay News reported, Trump confirmed the reports on Saturday.

Trump is expected to be arrested soon for an alleged payment misclassification.

“Here we go again—an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy said in a statement after

“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” McCarthy added.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, shared McCarthy’s statement on social media.

“Don’t worry, Liberal DA’s are working just as hard to indict actual criminals in Democrat-run cities,” the Judiciary Committee posted to Twitter.

“Just kidding. It’s all politics.”

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) cited one of the Federalist Papers, which says: “This power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people.”

“How much federal funding does the Manhattan DA’s office get?” Roy wondered.

The indictment against Trump, a Republican, is said to be coming from the office of New York’s DA Bragg, a Democrat.

On Saturday, Bragg’s office acknowledged receipt of questions about the possible indictment but did not answer them.

According to media reports, the indictment would come in relation to a payment made to Stormy Daniels.

Daniels has claimed Trump had an affair with her, a claim denied by the 45th president and previously rejected by the courts.

The payment was apparently not classified properly.

Trump said the allegations are “fully debunked” and a spokesperson told Fox News that Trump is “completely innocent.”

The GOP flipped control of the lower chamber in the 2022 midterms after earning more votes than Democrats in key districts in multiple states, including New York.

New York City, however, remains under tight Democrat control.

Rep. Daniel Goldman (D-NY), who served as the top lawyer in the second failed effort to impeach Trump, criticized McCarthy’s remarks.

“Speaker of the House of Representatives who has no idea what evidence the state DA has in support of grand jury indictment seeks to ‘weaponize’ the federal government to undermine the rule of law for political purposes,” Goldman said in a statement.

“No one is above the law,” Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) added.

Republicans, though, appeared to be unified behind the announcement.

“Speaker McCarthy proves again that through his leadership House GOP will not tolerate the Democrat’s weaponization of government and political persecution in the taxpayer’s dime,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said.

“The government serves the people NOT the Democrat Party.”
