Papadopoulos to Newsmax: NY Trump Case Is ‘Vindictive’

The investigation of former President Donald Trump allegedly paying hush money to silence porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election by Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is “nothing more than a vindictive display of state power against a political opponent,” George Papadopoulos told Newsmax on Friday night.

Papadopoulos, a former adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign, told “Eric Bolling The Balance” the prosecution of Trump “also is the normalization of selective and politically motivated targeting of those that the Democrats view as a threat to power.”

Bragg empaneled a grand jury in January to consider charges that Trump told his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to pay $130,000 to Daniels to cover up an alleged affair in 2006, and that Cohen was reimbursed through the Trump campaign. Trump has repeatedly denied having an affair with Daniels and Daniels signed a statement in 2018 saying she never had an affair with Trump.
