In a stunning move, Republican presidential candidate Larry Elder has responded to his primary opponent Vivek Ramaswamy’s pledge to pardon former President Trump if elected.
Elder, a strong conservative voice, refused to sign Ramaswamy’s pledge, calling it a “silly game” and reaffirming his commitment to justice and the rule of law.
Elder, in an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, declared, “As President, I would instruct my Attorney General to drop the politically-motivated charges against Trump.”
He went on to express his concern over the lack of consequences for Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act when she destroyed her private email server.
Elder questioned the slow progress of the special counsel investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, contrasting it with the swift investigation of Trump.
The politicization of the criminal justice system in America is a grave concern for Elder. He pointed out the example of partisan prosecution against Trump and the need to address this issue.
Elder highlighted the role of Soros-funded prosecutors who refuse to enforce the law, putting law-abiding citizens at risk.
To combat this, he announced his plan to introduce legislation in Iowa that would allow for the removal of weak-on-crime county attorneys who fail to protect their communities.
Elder expressed hope that Ramaswamy, despite his reported ties to Soros, would join him in supporting this critical anti-Soros, pro-safety measure.
While Elder demonstrates a strong stance on justice, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s campaign had no comment on the initiatives put forward by Republican primary candidates. Ramaswamy’s campaign spokeswoman also acknowledged Elder’s refusal to pledge a pardon, saying, “Got it. We’ll count Larry and RFK as a ‘no.'”
Ramaswamy, during a press conference in Miami, vowed to pardon Trump for his federal charges if elected president. This announcement comes after Trump’s recent indictment on 37 felony charges related to the retention of sensitive documents. The indictment has sparked calls for Special Counsel Robert Hur to bring similar charges against Biden, further fueling the political discourse.
Elder’s refusal to engage in political games and his unwavering commitment to justice and the rule of law distinguish him as a principled Republican candidate.
He continues to expose the dangers of Soros-funded prosecutors and calls for action to protect law-abiding citizens.
As the primary season unfolds, Elder’s steadfastness will undoubtedly resonate with passionate Republican voters seeking a leader who prioritizes justice and accountability in our great nation. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting race.
