Former Vice President Mike Pence blasted the prospect of his former boss being indicted and arrested next week.

On Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday program, Pence said he was “taken aback” at the news former President Donald Trump could be indicted and arrested. Trump announced on Saturday morning he was expected to be arrested on Tuesday on charges relating to hush-money payments he made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016, during his first campaign for president.

Pence stopped short of defending Trump but echoed his criticisms of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his pursuit of the former president, years after Bragg’s predecessor Cyrus Vance Jr. decided not to bring charges in the same case.

“Well, like many Americans, I’m just, I’m taken aback,” Pence told host Matt Boyle. “You have a major crime wave in New York, especially in New York City. You have literally a Democratic party that’s literally dismantled the criminal justice system in that city, undercut the NYPD, and this is what the Manhattan DA says is their top priority?”

“It reeks of the kind of political prosecution that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call,” Pence said.

“I mean, the reality is the American people are hurting. Just this last week, we saw a couple of bank failures that are driven by liberal policies on the West Coast and on the East Coast,” Pence said. “You have inflation at a 40-year high. Wages are stagnant. … And so I have to tell you, I’m going to stay focused on the challenges facing the American people. It’s what people talk to me about as I travel around America.”
