Posting on Saturday about the potential Trump arrest on Tuesday, March 21st, and if he plans on revoking his endorsement of the former president over it, Ohio Senator JD Vance said “hell no” and attacked the Manhattan DA behind the looming indictment as having been “bought” by George Soros.
He did so on Twitter in response to a post from the Washington Post about Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and the case, saying:
“Alvin Bragg is bought by George Soros. He allows violent criminals to walk the streets of New York City, but will prosecute the likely Republican nominee (and former president) on a baseless misdemeanor charge. These people are trying to turn America into a third-world country.
“I’ve been asked by multiple reporters if an indictment would lead me to rescind my endorsement of Donald Trump. The answer is: hell no. A politically motivated prosecution makes the argument for Trump stronger. We simply don’t have a real country if justice depends on politics.”

Trump posted about the looming indictment on Truth Social, saying:
OUR NATION IS NOW THIRD WORLD & DYING. THE AMERICAN DREAM IS DEAD! THE RADICAL LEFT ANARCHISTS HAVE STOLLEN OUR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND WITH IT, THE HEART OF OUR OUR COUNTRY. AMERICAN PATRIOTS ARE BEING ARRESTED & HELD IN CAPTIVITY LIKE ANIMALS, WHILE CRIMINALS & LEFTIST THUGS ARE ALLOWED TO ROAM THE STREETS, KILLING & BURNING WITH NO RETRIBUTION. MILLIONS ARE FLOODING THROUGH OUR OPEN BOARDERS, MANY FROM PRISONS & MENTAL INSTITUTIONS. CRIME & INFLATION ARE DESTROYING OUR VERY WAY OF LIFE…
Page 2: NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!
DA Bragg, however, does not look willing to back down. One journalist tweeted about that, saying:
EXCLUSIVE: Moments ago Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg sent out an email to the members of his office.
In the internal email Bragg says, “we do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York.”
He adds, “in the meantime, as with all of our investigations, we will continue to apply the law evenly and fairly and speak openly only when appropriate.”
However, John Cardillo tweeted that the DA’s office is in chaos over the upcoming indictment, saying, “NYC law enforcement sources telling me that the Manhattan DA’s office is “in chaos.” They’re telling me about 60% of the office wants no part of this and wishes Bragg and Reiss would just stop the nonsense. They all know there is no crime. Apparently all being driven by a small group of radicals at the top. Very similar to RussiaGate.”
Cardillo also called for GOP DAs to use their power to strike back, saying, “GOP prosecutors who refuse to fight fire with fire by weaponizing their offices think it makes them look noble. In reality, it just makes them look like cowardly pussies.“
