Congressmen Seeks to Defund Trump Prosecutors

He would deny both the DOJ and states federal funds if they continue the political prosecutions.

Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., is planning to use the upcoming government spending fight to pump the brakes on the federal and state prosecutions targeting former President Trump.

"Americans' hard-earned tax dollars have no place funding the radical Left's nefarious election interference efforts," Clyde told Fox News Digital. "Together, Jack Smith, Alvin Bragg, and Fani Willis intentionally brought four sham indictments against the sitting president's top political opponent, President Donald J. Trump, as the upcoming 2024 presidential election ramps up."

Clyde is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which has been tasked with assembling 12 different spending bills for the next fiscal year, which begins on Oct. 1.

Republican Georgia Rep. Andrew Clyde, right, is unveiling the House GOPs latest push to defund the prosecutions against former President Trump.

He said on Monday that he intends to introduce two amendments to the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, which allocates funding to the Justice Department, among other offices.

Both would prevent federal funds from going toward the prosecution of a major presidential candidate ahead of the 2024 White House race. The first is aimed at federal cases and the second at state prosecutions.


If Clyde's amendments make it through the legislative process and end up on the House floor for a vote, they face a decent prospect of passing under the GOP's razor-thin majority. However, the measures are likely dead on arrival in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

Meanwhile, even the leftwing rag The Hill notices how strange a date the leftwing radical judge chose to begin Trump's sham trial for "insurrection."

The judge in former President Trump's Jan. 6-related federal case landed a bombshell Monday when she set a date for his trial.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan announced jury selection in the trial would begin March 4 -- the day before Super Tuesday, the biggest day on the GOP primary calendar.

In making her decision, Chutkan declared that a trial date "cannot and should not" depend on the timetable of a defendant's work life.

Chutkan pushed the starting date later than sought by special counsel Jack Smith and his team, who wanted the trial to begin in January.

But her chosen spot on the calendar is a lot closer to Smith's request than to the Trump team's implausible suggestion that the trial should be postponed until 2026.

It is a remarkable choice, even if Chutkan professes indifference to the political ramifications of her decision. Around 14 states are expected to cast ballots in the GOP primary on Super Tuesday.

GOP figures allied with Trump are indignant.

"I was shocked that they would be this blatant," said one Republican operative supportive of Trump. "On what basis does the trial absolutely need to start the day before Super Tuesday? Are we really supposed to believe that this is just coincidence -- that she didn't take anything about the politics into account?"
