(FeaturedNews.com) – On Tuesday, during an interview Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy stated that it was a “bad idea” for former President Donald Trump to be indicted in his alleged role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.
Ramaswamy claimed that while Trump had showcased “bad judgment” on that day, this is not something that a “federal administrative police state” should be handling but rather something that voters should hold him accountable for on election day. In the interview with NewsNation he was directly asked if he believed that Trump should be held accountable for the events that took place that day. In response, Ramaswamy argued that he believed it was a “bad idea” for the country to create a pattern of indicting the political opposition of the leading party during a presidential election.
Ramaswamy has often attacked the federal government for their investigations against Trump, but has maintained his criticisms about how Trump handled the events of Jan. 6. As he argued there were many things that led to the Capitol attack, and while Trump’s judgment on the day had been bad, that is an entirely different thing to him having committed a crime that he should be held accountable for. He added that if an indictment is filed against Trump, then it would set a bad precedent in the country.
These latest remarks come after Trump revealed in a Truth Social statement that he had received a “target letter” on Sunday evening and that it was likely he was going to be indicted and arrested in this case soon.
