Van Jones Takes Hit For Saying This About Manahttan’s DA
A CNN regular and prominent liberal Van Jones recently suggested that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg should back off from indicting former President Donald Trump, and wait to see if he’s charged in Georgia first. The suggestion has caused an uproar amongst conservatives.
The comments were made by Jones during a Monday panel discussion hosted by Pamela Brown, and he argued that trying to indict Trump over “hush money” allegedly paid to a porn star was proof that the leftists did not have their act together when coming after Trump. “If anybody is a Republican and they had been afraid there is some well-organized conspiracy among progressives, they can relax now, because you would not start with this charge,” Jones said.
Jones went on to note that he was sure Bragg was under pressure to make something stick, but suggested that the wisest move would be to cool his heels and let Georgia take the first bite of the apple. “The heat is on this DA. I think he’s going to make a very sober decision, and I would not be surprised if he doesn’t step back from the brink,” Jones said.
The woke mob immediately attacked Jones for his opinion, criticizing him for his suggestion. Attorney Exavier Pope tweeted, “Van Jones is not a serious person and should not be taken seriously. A sentient corn on the cob,” while Jack Hopkins said, “I just heard Van Jones on CNN shout out to Alvin Bragg and say ‘I’d back off and let Georgia go first’ and followed up by saying he wouldn’t be surprised to see Alvin Bragg back down. Be ashamed, Van. Be very ashamed.”
Up until this point, it’s mostly been Red vs. Blue but now even Democrats are starting to see the Left’s weak threats toward former President Trump.
