Fairfax GOP Condemns Indictment of Former President

A Manhattan grand jury indicted former President Donald Trump on Thursday — a first in American history.

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin denounced what he called the indictment’s “manufactured basis” in a Thursday night tweet. “It is beyond belief that District Attorney Alvin Bragg has indicted a former President and current presidential candidate for pure political gain. Arresting a presidential candidate on a manufactured basis should not happen in America,” Youngkin wrote. “The left’s continued attempts to weaponize our judicial system erode people’s faith in the American justice system and it needs to stop.”

On Friday morning, Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares blasted New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s lack of focus on real crime. “Every minute Bragg spends prosecuting the former president is a minute he is not prosecuting violent criminals,” Miyares tweeted. “This is a tragedy for violent crime victims and is one of the reasons Americans are losing trust in the government.”

Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts echoed Younkin and Miyares in a statement issued over the weekend. “This politically-motivated prosecution of a former president is a new low,” Knotts said. “Across the country — including here in Northern Virginia — leftist prosecutors are putting politics over their duty to serve and protect the people. We desperately need a restoration of common sense.”
