(NewsGlobal.com)- In an interview last week, boxer Mike Tyson said he doesn’t believe former President Trump should go to jail.
Tyson spoke to Breitbart News while attending an event in Orlando, Florida last week where he said he thought Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s probe into Donald Trump is a “bad agenda.” He said he doesn’t think Trump should go to jail, but conceded that he isn’t a politician and doesn’t want anyone to go to jail.
Tyson said while he usually avoids weighing in on politics, he has known Trump for years and that gives him a different “perspective” on the former president, adding his is more of a “human perspective.”
The ongoing grand jury probe into the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016 hit a few speed bumps last week, delaying an anticipated indictment in the case.
Last Wednesday’s grand jury session was postponed unexpectedly with grand jurors being instructed to remain on standby for a session on Thursday. However, on Thursday the grand jury focused on “other matters” and the grand jury would resume its probe into the hush money payment on Monday, according to the Associated Press.
Over the weekend, it was confirmed that additional witness testimony was expected when the grand jury reconvened on Monday.
Over the weekend, former President Trump railed against District Attorney Alvin Bragg and the other investigations from Georgia and Washington while appearing at a campaign rally in Waco, Texas on Saturday.
Trump devoted much of his rally speech to complaining about the multiple investigations he is facing, calling them “phony” and witch hunts, and describing them as “the weaponization of our justice system,” which he said was the “central issue of our time.”
The previous day, Trump found himself in hot water after warning of “death and destruction” that would follow if he is charged by Alvin Bragg’s office.
In another Truth Social post, Trump shared a photo of himself swinging a baseball bat next to a second photo of Alvin Bragg.
NBC News reported on Friday that the FBI and NYPD were investigating an envelope containing white powder that was mailed to Bragg along with a death threat. The powder was not hazardous.
