Several reported 2024 presidential hopefuls have commented since the news that District Attorney Alvin Bragg could indict President Trump on bogus charges next week.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' PAC sent out an email on COVID-19 policies from three years ago to collect emails and phone numbers for fundraising platform WinRed. Governor DeSantis also tweeted Saturday evening about his hurricane response last year.
Former Vice President Mike Pence has commented twice since the news. He told Breitbart that this "reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax." Pence also told ABC that an arrest of President Trump would be "a politically charged prosecution."
Vivek Ramaswamy has weighed since the news. "This will mark a dark moment in American history and will undermine public trust in our electoral system itself," Ramaswamy wrote. "I call on the Manhattan District Attorney to reconsider this action and to put aside partisan politics in service of preserving our Constitutional republic.
Ramaswamy later tweeted, "I held a press conference following my South Carolina speech. I called on GOP donor class favorites Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley to join me by 9 AM tomorrow in calling on the Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg to abandon the political persecution through prosecution of the 45th president."
