Following news of President Donald Trump facing indictment, Kari Lake issued a statement. No punches were held back in her response:
This is a dark moment in the history of our nation. The radical left and their weaponized criminal justice system have crossed all legal and ethical lines in an attempt to destroy President Donald J. Trump.
Jailing our political opponents based on politically-motivated grievances is something you’d expect to see out of third-world dictatorships or banana republics. But now, after a years-long assault on our Constitution, the radical left has accelerated this country’s descent into a broken system that allows for the political persecution of ANYONE who threatens the status quo.
President Trump denies any wrongdoing. He has produced multiple pieces of evidence from the Grand Jury’s star witnesses, (Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen) refuting these accusations. The DA has NO CASE.
This political prosecution should receive bipartisan condemnation. The precedent this sets threatens to further divide a country already on the verge of tearing itself apart. Only cowards are willing to bend the law in order to silence the will of the American people.
I unequivocally stand beside President Donald J. Trump and in defense of the rule of law. I am calling on� all others to do the same.
It is imperative that America First patriots unite against this attack on our Constitution. Even those who are not Trump supporters can recognize how horrendous this move is for the nation.
