Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) said on Saturday that prosecutors that are funded by George Soros are attempting to destabilize the US through their lenient criminal justice practices.
The U.S. House Judiciary Committee, of which Rep. Van Drew serves as a member, had held a session on Monday to emphasize how Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s “pro-crime” rules contributed to a rise in crime in New York City, Van Drew talked to Breitbart News Saturday guest host along with Breitbart Entertainment Editor Jerome Hudson.
After observing the more radical policies Dems. are promoting, Van Drew decided to leave the party. He said on Saturday that so many prosecutors seem out to ruin the nation with their lax approaches to criminal justice.
It’s unfortunate, he said to Breitbart News on Saturday, that “some of these prosecutors in a number of these large cities have been entirely funded by George Soros in order to destroy internally the American nation and make us just another global portion of the world.”
Through the liberal billionaire George Soros’ donation to the Color of Change PAC, Bragg has also gotten money from Soros indirectly.
Van Drew claimed that prosecutors frequently seem to care more about the culprit than the victim and that 50% of felonies committed in the city are frequently reduced to misdemeanors.
“Bad individuals should be locked up, and if they commit really heinous crimes, they should be locked up permanently.” He continued, saying that “good people ought to be safe,” and that fighting crime is “not complicated.”
Donald Trump, the 45th president, became the first former president to ever face criminal charges in American history when Alvin Bragg stirred up controversy by declaring his intention to press charges against the former president.
Jim Jordan, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, claimed during the hearing on Monday that Bragg cared “more about those who are guilty of crime than the victims.”
