Former Florida AG Pam Bondi Says Trump Indictment ‘Should Never See the Light of Day’
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s crusade against Donald Trump will be dead-on-arrival, says former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi. The left-wing prosecutor is reportedly preparing to unveil charges against the former president this week regarding an alleged bribe to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. But Bondi says that Bragg’s time to prosecute has already run out.
“This case has been going on for well over six years,” Bondi told Newsmax during a Sunday interview. “I don’t see any way that they can avoid the statute of limitations in this case, unless they try to say there’s newly discovered evidence.”
In New York, misdemeanor charges have a two-year statute of limitations. Even if the charges were upgraded, most felonies in New York have a five-year statute of limitations.
“Secondly I don’t think anyone can make sense of this case because this case should never, ever see the light of day. The feds declined to prosecute this guy, [Bragg’s] predecessor declined to prosecute it.”
In the interview, Bondi refers to Bragg as a “Soros-funded prosecutor who is out to get Trump.” During his 2021 campaign, Bragg received help from Color Of Change PAC, a racial justice group that liberal billionaire George Soros funded to the tune of $1 million.
He is reportedly preparing to charge Donald Trump over a $130,000 payment his lawyer made to Stormy Daniels.
“People keep using the words hush money. This is even in the light, most favorable to the prosecution. This is about the execution of a nondisclosure agreement. These are so common in the way the funds were dispersed in a nondisclosure agreement.”
“Alvin Bragg better look out for his career because this is going to backfire on him… If you’re living in New York, I don’t care if you’re a Democrat or Republican, if you’re the victim of a crime, and you’re watching this circus about to take place, you’re going to be disgusted.”
Since his election, Bragg has championed a soft-on-crime “criminal justice reform” approach to his work. He has often refused to prosecute crimes and notoriously instructed his prosecutors to avoid seeking jail time for assaults and robberies. He has downgraded roughly half of the felony cases in his office to misdemeanors.
“Every citizen is scared to ride the subway, every parent in New York, who’s scared to let their children go to school, and they’re wasting their money on yet another witch hunt of Donald Trump this case will never see the light of day nor should it be.”
But the former Florida Attorney General also insists that what goes around, comes around.
“They have tried to get [Trump] every way they can” Bondi said, referencing two impeachment trials and the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. “They keep coming up empty-handed. They have nothing here and Alvin Bragg just lost his career over this case.”
According to “illegal leaks” obtained by the former president, the Manhattan DA’s office is preparing to arrest Donald Trump on Tuesday. Trump has called the allegations against him “AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED FAIRYTALE.”
