(FOX NEWS) – Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke out against the possible arrest of former President Donald Trump, arguing the move would be a “politically charged prosecution.”

“It just feels like a politically charged prosecution here. And I, for my part, I just feel like it’s just not what the American people want to see,” Pence said when asked about the potential arrest during a Sunday appearance on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“I’m taken aback at the idea of indicting a former president of the United States, at a time when there’s a crime wave in New York City, that – the fact that the Manhattan D.A. thinks that indicting President Trump is his top priority.”

The former vice president’s remarks come after Trump claimed on his Truth Social platform Saturday that he could be arrested on Tuesday, arguing there had been “illegal leaks” of the investigation’s details to the press.
