John Bolton and Mitt Romney Doom Alvin Bragg: ‘Even Weaker Than I Feared, Dangerous Precedent, Quick Acquittal’

Two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics have dropped the hammer on Alvin Bragg after details of the Manhattan district attorney’s indictment were revealed.

Unlike their Democrat allies, former Trump administration National Security Advisor John Bolton and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) didn’t gloat and celebrate.

Instead, they trashed Bragg for bringing a weak case and predicted a “quick acquittal” for Trump.

Speaking about the indictment, Bolton appeared devastated at the realization that Bragg’s get-Trump is “weaker than [he] feared.”

“As someone who very strongly does not want Donald Trump to get the Republican presidential nomination, I’m extraordinarily distressed,” Bolton told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I think this is even weaker than I feared it would be, and I think it’s easily subject to being dismissed or a quick acquittal for Trump.

“There is no basis in the statutory language to say that Trump’s behavior forms either a contribution or an expenditure under federal law.

“If you can construe the statute to cover this behavior, then I think it violates the First Amendment.”

Romney also issued a statement that pans Bragg’s “overreach” and accuses the Democrat prosecutor of pursuing a “political agenda.”

“I believe President Trump’s character and conduct make him unfit for office.

“Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda.

“No one is above the law, not even former presidents, but everyone is entitled to equal treatment under the law.

“The prosecutor’s overreach sets a dangerous precedent for criminalizing political opponents and damages the public’s faith in our justice system.

“The charges and evidence will be duly considered and the outcome decided by a jury with an obligation to fulfill its responsibility with the utmost care and impartiality.

“The American voters will ultimately render their own judgment on the former President’s political future,” he said.

“Finally, it is also incumbent on all elected leaders to discourage violence and anger in response to this situation.”
