Republican presidential candidate Larry Elder has recently responded to his primary opponent Vivek Ramaswamy’s pledge to pardon former President Trump if elected.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, Elder expressed his commitment to justice and the rule of law, stating that he would not sign Ramaswamy’s pledge.
Elder, known for his conservative values, emphasized his intention to instruct the Attorney General to drop politically-motivated charges against Trump if he were to become President. He raised concerns about the lack of consequences for Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act and questioned the discrepancies between the investigations into Trump and Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.
The politicization of the criminal justice system in the United States is a significant issue for Elder. He highlighted the role of Soros-funded prosecutors who refuse to enforce the law, endangering law-abiding citizens. Elder announced his plan to introduce legislation in Iowa to remove weak-on-crime county attorneys who fail to protect their communities. He expressed hope that Ramaswamy, despite his reported ties to Soros, would support this critical anti-Soros, pro-safety measure.
While Elder remains steadfast in his commitment to 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 acknowledged Elder’s refusal to sign the pledge, indicating that they would count him as a ‘no.’
Ramaswamy, during a press conference in Miami, vowed to pardon Trump for his federal charges if elected president. This follows Trump’s recent indictment on 37 felony charges related to sensitive documents. The indictment has sparked calls for Special Counsel Robert Hur to bring similar charges against Biden, further intensifying the political landscape.
Elder’s refusal to engage in political games and his unwavering commitment to justice distinguish him as a principled Republican candidate. He sheds light on 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.
