On Thursday, former President Donald Trump called for the removal of four officials who are currently investigating him, all in unrelated cases.

“District Attorney [Alvin] Bragg is a danger to our Country, and should be removed immediately, along with Radical Lunatic Bombthrower Jack Smith, who is harassing and intimidating innocent people at levels not seen before, “Get Trump” Letitia James, the worst Attorney General in the United States, and Atlanta D.A. Fani Willis, who is trying to make PERFECT phone calls into a plot to destroy America, but reigns over the most violent Crime Scene in America, and does nothing about it!” Trump said in a Truth Social post.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been investigating allegations that Trump ordered his lawyer to pay $130,000 in hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Last week, Trump predicted that Bragg and his legal team would arrest him on Tuesday and told his supporters to come to New York City and protest the decision.

Trump was not arrested and only a small crowd of Trump supporters were seen protesting in Manhattan on Tuesday. Bragg is expected to meet with a grand jury on Monday to further analyze the allegations against Trump and discuss potential charges.
