Larry Elder, the Republican presidential candidate, has responded to his primary opponent Vivek Ramaswamy’s challenge to commit to pardoning former President Trump if elected. In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, Elder made it clear that he would not sign Ramaswamy’s pledge, dismissing it as a mere “silly game” and asserting his determination to focus on substantial issues.
Elder firmly stated, “As President, I would instruct my Attorney General to drop the politically-motivated charges against Trump.” He expressed deep concern over the lack of accountability for Hillary Clinton’s blatant violation of the Espionage Act when she destroyed her private email server. Furthermore, he questioned the prolonged duration of the special counsel investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents compared to the swift action taken against Trump.
The politicization of the criminal justice system in our country deeply troubles Elder, who sees the partisan prosecution of Donald Trump as a prime example. He brought attention to the issue of Soros-funded prosecutors who, he believes, fail to fulfill their duty to enforce the law and prioritize the safety of law-abiding citizens. In a bold move, Elder announced his forthcoming legislation in Iowa, which aims to enable the removal of weak-on-crime county attorneys, ensuring that communities are protected from those who neglect their responsibilities. He called upon Ramaswamy to support this crucial anti-Soros, pro-safety measure, expressing hope that Ramaswamy’s alleged ties to Soros would not hinder his support.
While Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s campaign declined to comment on the initiatives presented by Republican primary candidates, Ramaswamy’s campaign spokesperson, Tricia McLaughlin, responded, “Got it. We’ll count Larry and RFK as a ‘no.'”
Ramaswamy, during a press conference held at the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Miami, Florida, declared that if he were elected president, he would pardon Trump for his federal charges. Trump’s recent indictment on 37 felony charges related to the retention of sensitive documents has spurred calls for Special Counsel Robert Hur to pursue similar charges against Biden.
Elder’s refusal to engage in political games and his unwavering commitment to justice and the rule of law set him apart as a principled Republican candidate. By exposing the dangers of Soros-funded prosecutors and advocating for stronger safety measures, Elder has established himself as a leader who prioritizes the well-being of law-abiding citizens.
As the primary season unfolds, Elder’s steadfastness is sure to resonate with passionate Republican voters seeking a candidate who will restore justice and integrity to our nation’s criminal justice system. Stay tuned for further updates on this dynamic race.
