Many GOP leaders are speaking out against the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump. NBC News has more: 

Republicans’ defense of former President Donald Trump has taken a surprising twist: They’re threatening to defund the prosecutor. 

For years, Trump and fellow GOP candidates have pilloried progressive Democrats for promoting a “defund the police” movement that seeks to shift funds away from traditional law enforcement and toward community services aimed at reducing crime. 

The progressives’ slogan proved an effective enough weapon for Republicans against Democrats that Joe Biden felt compelled during his 2020 campaign to call for additional federal spending for police. 

But now, as Trump anticipates being indicted over allegations that he illegally paid hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels in furtherance of his successful 2016 bid for the presidency, House Republicans are threatening federal funding for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office. More broadly, the GOP is looking to weaken prosecutors whose campaigns were supported by the liberal billionaire George Soros. 

That and much more on The Vince Coakley Radio Program.
