Ramaswamy: NYC DA Alvin Bragg’s Lawfare Against Trump a ‘Bastardization of Our Legal System’


‘This case is obviously a corruption of the law. Lawfare,’ responds tech entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy laid out the circumstances that have culminated in ex-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented show trial over alleged hush money payments in New York City.

“Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s prosecution of Donald Trump and its trial begins today. What a joke,” began Ramaswamy, going on to detail how Bragg bypassed the statute of limitations by claiming Trump committed a felony, rather than a misdemeanor.

Alvin Bragg‘s case against Trump rests on the ludicrous legal premise that a candidate must use *campaign* funds to make personal hush money payments.

“It’s almost as though they decided this is the person we’re going to prosecute and then we’re going to figure out what we’re going to charge him with after the fact. Well, guess what? That’s exactly what happened.”

Ramaswamy went on to note the pursuit of criminal charges against Trump is purely political, as Bragg campaigned on “going after Donald Trump.”

“For what crime? We had no idea,” Ramaswamy stated. “Just the idea that they had to go after Donald Trump.”

“This is a politician keeping his campaign promise. That is a bastardization of our legal system. That’s not how we do things in the United States.”

The former GOP candidate pointed out the prosecution of Trump is eroding the very fabric of America.

“I think Trump is going to prevail. But most importantly, I hope we move beyond this phase of our history, where you have one political party that thinks it can use the legal system to prosecute its opponents. The same shoe can fit the other foot, and if we keep going down this direction, we’re not going to have a country left.”

Tech billionaire Elon Musk agreed with Ramawamy’s message on X, writing, “This case is obviously a corruption of the law. Lawfare.”
