Rep. Ro Khanna: ‘There Used to Be a Time … Where Politicians Didn’t Comment on Law Enforcement Investigations’

( – Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) said that if House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer is right about there being a statute of limitations issue in the case that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is trying to bring against former President Donald Trump, he has “faith that the courts will work that out.”

“Jake, there used to be a time in this country where politicians didn’t comment on law enforcement investigations. I don’t know why that’s so hard. Why can’t we just go back to that?” the congressman told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“And, by the way, the Republicans, who have faith in American democracy and our judicial system, if Chairman Comer is right that there’s a statute of limitations issue, I have faith that the courts will work that out, but politicians, we should be focused on the economy, on inflation, on bringing manufacturing back and leave law enforcement to those who are tasked with law enforcement,” he said.

When asked whether the congressman shares the concerns of some Democrats that this is not the strongest case against Trump and it might rally people to support him, Khanna said, “I think there are other things that President Trump has done that are more serious, such as January 6, but, again, it’s not for me to tell a district attorney who to charge or what charges to bring. 

“I mean, I never speak to my local district attorney about what he should do. It would be an outrage if politicians started to do that, and I guess, ultimately, I have faith in the jury process. I have faith in our courts. You can appeal all the way to the Supreme Court,” he said.


“If there is something that is not correct, it’s not going to require Chairman Comer to figure it out. We have got one of the best judicial processes in the world. They will make sure that justice is done,” the congressman said.
