Republican Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has called for George Soros-installed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to be “put in jail” over the New York Democrat prosecutor’s efforts to arrest President Donald Trump.
Sen. Paul also blasted the potential indictment of Trump as a “disgusting abuse of power.”
Paul’s comments come amid a heated legal battle between Trump and Bragg, who is reportedly planning to indict the 45th president.
“A Trump indictment would be a disgusting abuse of power,” Paul posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
“The DA should be put in jail.”

The potential charges would reportedly stem from an alleged $130,000 hush-money payment that then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.
In a Monday night video shared to Truth Social, Trump called the “four horrible, radical-Left Democratic investigations of your all-time favorite president” an extension of the “most disgusting witch hunt in the history of our country.”
“It’s gone on forever with Russia, Russia, Russia; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, and the Mueller hoax,” Trump said, referencing the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller spent millions of dollars in taxpayer money investigating Trump’s campaign for potential collusion with Russia and found no evidence of wrongdoing.
“It’s an absolute disgrace, what’s going on,” Trump added.
“Remember this, with all of this work that they did on Mueller, no collusion.
“That’s what the answer was. It was all no collusion.”
Trump also referred to the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home and the Democrats’ false claims against him regarding Jan. 6.
The 45th president slammed the Stormy Daniels litigation as an “extortion plot” and blasted the investigations against him as “fake news.”
The decision on whether Trump will be indicted lies in the hands of a Manhattan grand jury, which has been meeting for weeks.
Trump said last weekend that reports suggested he would be arrested over a potential indictment.
While hosting events around the country, Trump continues to deny any wrongdoing and has criticized the Manhattan district attorney’s office investigation as politically motivated.
Bragg was put into office as the Manhattan DA by radical billionaire George Soros.
Like many other Democrat prosecutors across the country, Bragg ran on a campaign of promises to “get Trump” on unspecified charges.
