Top Republicans Show Support for Trump during New York ‘Hush Money’ Trial

Several prominent Republicans have publicly declared their support for President Donald Trump as he faces a political prosecution in his New York “hush money” case.

On Monday, jury selection began in the first of four criminal trials, the Huffington Post reported.

Those who are on his shortlist for Trump’s vice president have especially remained loyal.

The trial began this week in New York as Trump faces 34 counts of falsifying business records over alleged payments to adult star Stormy Daniels.

Trump is accused of paying Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, to keep quiet about an alleged affair ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Democrat prosecutors claim Trump made the payments and then failed to disclose it as a campaign expense.

However, there is no evidence of any such affair or that Trump made any so-called “hush money” payments.

Both Trump and Daniels have denied any affair even took place.

Trump has rightly identified this trial as an effort to keep him from winning another White House term in 2024.

He pleaded not guilty and says he committed no wrongdoing.

In the face of a political prosecution, some heavy hitters on the right have taken to defending him.

Many of those top Republicans are rumored to be on Trump’s shortlist for a vice presidential running mate, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, the Left continues its crusade against the 45th president.

On Monday, several Republicans showed their support with posts to X as the first stages of the trial were underway.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), thought to be a likely vice presidential pick, did his part in a post Monday.

“What the radical Left is doing is not just election interference, it’s election engineering,” Scott wrote.

“They will try everything (and fail) to stop Donald J. Trump.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders also attacked Democrats for their transparent attempt to thwart Trump’s 2024 presidential bid.

“The only reason New York Democrats launched the witch hunt against President Trump is because they know they can’t beat him at the ballot box,” Sanders posted Monday.

While some focused on the motivations of those bringing the charges, others saw the glaring problems with the people bringing the case, including Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Judge Juan Merchan, both Democrats.

As Slay News has reported Judge Merchan has donated to President Joe Biden’s previous campaign and those of other Democrats.

The judge’s daughter also works with top Democrats, including the Biden-Harris re-election campaign.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) railed against George Soros-funded Bragg in a post to X.

“What Alvin Bragg is doing to President Trump is a disgrace to the rule of law and the opposite of Justice,” Vance, who has expressed interest in becoming Trump’s running mate, said.

“It’s also election interference.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) supported Trump’s assertion that Merchan is “corrupt” because of his daughter’s work with Democrats who use Trump’s trial to fundraise.

Despite this, Merchan has refused to recuse himself from the trial on several occasions.

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum called the proceedings a “sham trial” and an “unprecedented attack on” Trump while he was campaigning for president.

Kari Lake, who has remained loyal to Trump and is running for U.S. Senate in Arizona, took to social media to support Trump’s request to skip a day in the trial to attend son Barron Trump’s graduation.

Democrats have been attempting to smear Trump with these charges, but it’s clear many Republicans are sticking by him.

People are tired of the ruling class rigging elections in one way or another, and big names in the GOP are ready to help stop it.
