(FreedomBeacon.com)- The FBI is “prepared” for mass violence over the arrest of former President Donald Trump, according to a report from Axios. While on CNN’s State of the Union, Democratic Senator Mark Warner said that though the FBI has not seen any “specific strains” of violence, they have noticed an uptick in rhetoric on right-wing websites following the former president’s announcement that he would be arrested by the NYC District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Warner said that the violence that ensues in Trump’s name will be just another stain on his already “checkered reputation.” The Democrat is currently leading the bipartisan effort to ban Tiktok after agreeing that the former president was right to call it a threat, according to American Pigeon.
After appearing at a rally in Waco, Texas last week, Trump claimed that the charges against him have been dropped but did not cite any evidence backing that up.
“It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing,” he told reporters.
The news of an arrest has ignited protests in the city against Bragg and other prosecutors investigating Trump for alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniels. After Bragg claimed that a letter arrived at his office with a powdery substance, he claimed that they will continue to “apply the law evenly.”
Critics of the NYC D.A. are saying that crime in the city is rising while he is focusing on prosecuting his political opponents rather than criminals. 92% of all New Yorkers are saying that crime is a somewhat or very serious problem in the state, according to the conservative magazine American Pigeon.
76% of Democrats, a number higher than Republicans and Independents in the state, reportedly support Governor Kathy Hochul’s proposal to allow judges more discretion in setting bail for criminals. But the progressive politicians in the state refuse to negotiate.
