Skip to comments.Van Jones Trashed For Warning Manhattan DA To Back Off Trump Indictment
Posted on 03/21/2023 12:32:03 PM PDT by Red Badger
CNN regular Van Jones took some backlash after suggesting that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg would be wise to back off and not indict former President Donald Trump — or at least wait and see whether he’d face charges in Georgia first.
Jones made the comments during a Monday panel discussion hosted by Pamela Brown, and he argued that pushing for an indictment over “hush money” allegedly paid to a porn star was proof that the leftists did not have their act together with regard to coming after Trump.
“If anybody is a Republican and they had been afraid there is some well-organized conspiracy among progressives, they can relax now, because you would not start with this charge,” Jones said, adding, “You would start with the charge in Georgia where he was interfering with elections. You would start with the charge that he was helping the insurrectionists in a coup. You wouldn’t start with an 8-year-old porn star payoff. This is proof, if nothing else, that the progressives are not very well organized. This is not the one you would start with.”
Jones went on to note that he was sure Bragg was facing mounting pressure to make something stick but suggested that the wisest move would be to cool his heels a bit and let Georgia take the first bite at the apple.
“The heat is on this DA. I think he’s going to make a very sober decision, and I would not be surprised if he doesn’t step back from the brink,” Jones said.

“It doesn’t seem like the right way to go. History is not going to judge Donald Trump based on Stormy Daniels. It’s going to judge him based on the election, it’s going to judge him based on the coup attempt, the insurrection,” Jones insisted. “I think if I were Alvin, I would wait for Georgia to go first. You have the president calling in, trying to change the election. That seems to me the thing to start with, not this.”
Critics immediately attacked Jones for voicing his opinion.
“Van Jones is not a serious person and should not be taken seriously. A sentient corn on the cob,” attorney Exavier Pope tweeted.
“I just heard Van Jones on CNN shout out to Alvin Bragg and say ‘I’d back off and let Georgia go first’ and followed up by saying he wouldn’t be surprised to see Alvin Bragg back down. Be ashamed, Van. Be very ashamed,” Jack Hopkins added.
“Back on earth one this is **not how any of this works**,” Molly Jong-Fast said.
Van Jones has moments of lucidity.
because for the commie left, they really do believe that if they get rid of Trump they can stay in power forever that is honestly what they believe
He is right! The left can go suck a BD!
Chris Rock told everybody on live television what would happen, and he’s right.....................
He may not be invited on the Piew again.
Wow. Amazing to see van Jones being criticized by his fellow leftists on this issue.
Jones is smart, he knows what advances The Revolution and what doesn’t.
“A truth that’s told with bad intent, Beats all the lies you can invent.”
Alvin Bragg is the heroic kamikaze pilot who is going to crash on the main deck of the flagship of Team Trump. He may do some damage in the short term, but this is a desperation move by the Deep State, and in no way sink the target toward which the attack was directed.
Donald Trump may emerge from this with new battle scars, but what else is new? This is still the best game he has ever had in the world venue, and calls upon every strategy and tactic he has ever developed over the years.
Not Trump’s first rodeo, by any means.
Obviously he’s right. You lose 40 Pence’s support if this was the Georgia B.S, you may even lose one more but no Repuke can back them on this. They are twisting themselves into pretzels to get Trump.
"Back off man!"
This may end up looking like a ‘Black on White’ crime.............
Best analysis I’ve seen all day. Braggy-Poo may likely back off too. I strongly believe all of this posturing is nothing more than gorilla chest beating before the retreat strategy is decided upon. Based on what I have seen and heard in that light I expected nothing to happen today! So far so good!
Yes. Moments. But they always keelhaul anyone who disagrees with the Mob.
Sounds like the MAGA heat is getting to the left all they are doing is helping him get elected.
Of course, this is just banana republic lawfare and intimidation, meant to influence a federal election, which, I would think, would be a federal crime.
Perhaps, if Bragg was actually interested in "justus" he would consider cbarging Stormy and her lawyer with extortion, slander and perjury?
Wonder if she paid income taxes on the money?
I wish Jones would ask his fellow libs how they would feel if this was a Republican AG getting ready to handcuff their idol O. I just wish ONE person would ask this just once.
