House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Saturday called for an immediate investigation following former President Donald Trump’s assertion that he will be arrested next week based on “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy said.

“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” the speaker added:

McCarthy’s call for an investigation followed Trump making waves, explaining on Truth Social that he believes he will be arrested as a result of what he described as “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office — a reference to Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case related to porn star Stormy Daniels and the claim that Trump pressured his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to make “hush money” payments to Daniels on behalf of Trump.
