Chris Christie silences Democrat for attacking Republicans skeptical of far-left DA who is targeting Trump
Democrat Donna Brazile tried on Sunday to paint Republicans as hypocrites for criticizing the potential forthcoming indictment of former President Donald Trump.
But Republican Chris Christie promptly shut it down.
While discussing Trump’s potential indictment, Brazile claimed the response from some Republicans indicates they do not really support law enforcement, as they often claim.
“Look, this is a party that continues to say that they are for law and order when it suits them,” she said. “But it doesn’t suit them when the crime is gun violence, when the crime is — seeing this country suffer from the kind of violence and crime across the board.”
Christie, the former New Jersey governor, immediately intervened.
“I’m not going to stand up for that,” he said, highlighting the hypocrisy of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose office is leading the criminal case into Trump.
“Let me tell you who doesn’t enforce law and order when it comes to gun violence,” he continued. “I go into New York City every week. It is a danger zone to go into Manhattan because Alvin Bragg is running a revolving door and not prosecuting gun crime, not prosecuting violent criminals. And if he does, he lets them out within four hours of when they’re arrested to commit more crimes.
“So let’s not get into that argument because Alvin Bragg has failed miserably,” Christie explained. “And all of a sudden, he wants to get up on Donald Trump.”

What about Bragg?
Just days after taking office last year, Bragg announced progressive criminal justice policies that focus on so-called “restorative justice” that ultimately reduce punishment for many crimes.
In his first year as district attorney, more than half of all felony cases were downgraded to misdemeanor charges, Bragg’s office requested bail is less than half of all felony cases, and his office won fewer cases in court, the New York Post reported.
Meanwhile, crime in New York City became exponentially worse last year, seeing an overall increase of 23.5% compared to 2021.
