State Freedom Caucus Network (SFCN) communications director Greg Price tweeted this week about the corruption of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is charging federal officials who refuse to prosecute and indict former President Donald Trump with a felony rather than a misdemeanor.
Mind you, Bragg is the same guy who just last year decided to reduce 52 percent of all felony charges in his jurisdiction to a misdemeanor, all to create “equity” for black lives who commit crimes at a disproportionately higher rate than other racial groups in the Big Apple and elsewhere.
Bragg is making a special exception in the case against Trump, whom he clearly wants to see thrown in the slammer, by going after the feds who refuse to participate in the witch hunt against the former president, who over the weekend announced to the world that he will be arrested on March 21.
“If Alvin Bragg has decided to go ahead with a felony indictment of the former president, this was a charge that the federal officials refused to prosecute on or even really pursue,” reads a portion of an article shared by Bragg in a screenshot, adding that a source believes Trump “will still have to be fingerprinted and processed like every other defendant.”
“This was a misdemeanor in New York that Alvin Bragg has decided to elevate to a felony while at the same time downgrading other felonies to misdemeanors. So we’ll be watching this to see how it all unfold[s] to get more information as it comes in.”

DeSantis blasts Bragg, calls him “Soros-funded”
Responding to Bragg’s political shenanigans, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis chimed in that the corrupt DA is “Soros-funded” and is “weaponizing the office” of DA with his corrupt actions.
While emphasizing that he personally will not be getting involved with this “manufactured circus” surrounding the charges against Trump, DeSantis warned that Bragg is attempting to “impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety.”
The case in question involved $130,000 in hush money that Trump allegedly paid to then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who then allegedly gave it to Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, to keep her quiet about an alleged sexual encounter that she had with Trump in 2016.
Federal prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York chose not to charge Trump in relation to that alleged payment, even as Cohen implicated him as part of his own plea deal. In 2021, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) also tossed out its own investigation into the matter.
Bragg entered the fray by taking personal aim at Trump and those who refused to go after him like many other Democrats were demanding. The victims in all this, according to DeSantis, are “ordinary Americans” who get steamrolled by a “reckless political agenda.”
“And so you’re talking about this situation with, and like, I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair – I just I can’t speak to that,” DeSantis added in a statement.
“But what I can speak to is that if you have a prosecutor who is ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction, and he chooses to go back many, many years ago to try to use something about porn star hush-money payments, you know, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office. And I think that that’s fundamentally wrong.”
