New Rhode Island GOP chair defends Trump hush money and fraud despite indictment

So much for “equal justice under law”

By Joe Powers

Chairman Joe Powers Statement on Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s Indictment

Rhode Island Republican Chairman Joe Powers released the following statement on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of former President Donald Trump:

“I’m unclear about what the charges are at this point. The indictment has not been released. I would prefer to wait to see what the chargers are. Regardless, I’m sure President Trump will mount a strong legal defense, whatever the charges are

My concern is that instead of cleaning up New York City, DA Bragg is wasting taxpayer dollars to go after a high-profile individual. If the charges prove to be false, I’m sure Rhode Islanders and Americans across the country will see right through the political theatre.”
