State Rep. Neil Friske, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, is condemning the actions demonstrated by the New York District Attorney’s Office toward former President Donald Trump. The condemnation comes after a Manhattan Grand Jury formally voted to indict President Trump.
“No former or sitting president has ever been indicted – this is something our country has never seen before,” said Friske, of Charlevoix. “It’s outrageous.”
Rep. Friske sees this indictment as a clear crackdown by the Biden Administration and their allies against an upcoming political rival. According to Rep. Friske:
“It’s completely unsettling to think we may have to witness a former president, who is currently running in the next election, perp walked on live television, and treated like a political prisoner. Maybe you wouldn’t be surprised to hear about the leader of the opposition being arrested in certain developing nations, but this is America.”
Rep. Friske reminds his constituents to “stand strong, and make your voices heard”.
“The citizens of the Upper Peninsula are honest and hard-working,” said Friske, R-Charlevoix. “They know a bad idea when they see one. They are telling us these bills are a terrible idea. I’m proud of the people who sent me to Lansing, and I’m proud to stand with them in opposition of this radical legislation.”
Rep. Friske presented local Northern Michigan hero Pat Rickley with a tribute on Saturday, May 20, after it had been announced that Rickley was retiring after 30 years of service with the Mackinac Bridge Authority.
