Former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo slams Bragg's case against Trump

Sometimes, politics makes for strange bedfellows, and former President Donald Trump's possible indictment has even drawn criticism from the far left, as evidenced this week. 

According to the Washington Examiner, disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) made a number of interesting comments regarding what he described as a political attack on the former president.

While he didn't exactly say he was ready for a lunch date at Mar-a-Lago, Cuomo pointed out the ridiculousness of the prosecution.

Cuomo made the surprising comments during an interview last week on WABC 770 talk radio show "The Cats Roundtable." He explained to host John Catsimatidis his thoughts on the proceedings.

"Cynical public"

The former New York governor said that prosecutions at that level, in this day and age, are virtually all political in nature, adding that there's no coincidence of the political parties going after each other.

"I don’t believe a Democratic prosecutor just happens to be attacking a Republican. I don’t believe a Republican prosecutor just happens to be attacking a Democrat. I think it’s all politics, and I think that’s what the people of this country are saying,” he continued.

He added: "And I think it’s feeds the cynicism, and that’s the cancer in our body politic right now."

"It’s a coincidence that Bragg goes after Trump and Tish James goes after Trump and Georgia goes after Trump. That’s all a coincidence," he continued.

A growing list of Democrats have echoed similar sentiment over the situation, which has taken a number of turns since Trump announced earlier this month that he could soon be indicted and arrested.

The latest

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's case could be in jeopardy of completely falling apart after several new revelations over the past week that only served to weaken what was already the weakest attempt at a prosecution in the history of the U.S. justice system.

Last week his grand jury proceedings were mysteriously canceled, fueling speculation that his case could be dead on arrival.

Trump has blasted the progressive DA in past weeks, standing by his assertion that it's a political witch hunt and an effort to hamstring his presidential ambitions.

Recent polling shows that a majority of Americans, even when broken down by party lines, believe the phony indictment will only serve to help Trump in his quest to retake the White House.
