Democrats demand jail time for Trump, GOP warns against it

by ian

Democrat fundraisers are demanding jail time for former President Donald Trump, but the GOP warns not so fast.

According to Townhall, Democrat fundraising website ActBlue is demanding Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg recommend that Judge Juan Merchan sentence Trump to jail time.

An email by the organization called “Jurors Against Trump” said, “As jurors, we are outraged by Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the people who make up our criminal justice system – including prosecutors, judges, clerks, witnesses, and jurors like all of us.”

But Republicans like House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) are saying that the desperate Democrat effort to beat Trump with the judicial system is dangerous.

Republican senators are also saying that should Trump’s campaign be undermined by partisan efforts, it could impact voter confidence in the 2024 elections.
