NextImg:EXCLUSIVE: Vivek Ramaswamy says Biden administration will place
Trump in jail

Speaking with Human Events host Jack Posobiec on Friday, GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said he believes the Biden administration would put fellow Republican candidate Donald Trump behind bars. 

"Let me ask you directly because I promised the crowd that I would, promised everyone that I would, do you believe that if given the chance they will move to put Donald Trump behind bars?" Posobiec asked.

"I think they will, yeah," Ramaswamy replied. "I think that this is the ultimate goal and destination, they will not stop absent the intervention of real leadership."

"That’s why it’s important that someone like me, for example, who is running against Trump for the nomination, who has more credibility to stand on the side of principle against self-interest, actually stands up and makes those legal arguments."

Ramaswamy said he tries "to be as rigorous as I have on the pages of The Wall Street Journal and otherwise, so I called on RFK. I was frankly — I was hopeful — maybe a little disappointed that he didn’t come out the same way."

"I think it adds more credibility to say this is not about politics, this is about principle and that’s where I stand."

Ramaswamy later added in regards to the numerous indictments against Trump, "What I explain to a lot of my friends who are outside of politics and say, 'well, you know, I’m sure he did something wrong,' right. I say, think about it the other way around. The fact that there are all of these prosecutions happening at the exact same time, right as he’s running for president on strange legal theories that have never once been used before, what does that tell you?"

"It has nothing to do with the law. It has to do with an anaphylactic immune response against an antigen in the form of Trump that threatened the system."

Vivek told the audience that he would pardon Trump on day one of his presidency if he wins office, something that he declared when he traveled to the Miami courthouse where Trump was arraigned on charges related to the alleged keeping of classified documents.

"I think it would be disastrous," Vivek said of the potential for a presidential candidate to be jailed before the primary.

Trump was indicted in Manhattan this spring on over 30 felony business records falsification charges, which usually are misdemeanor charges. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg alleged that payments were improperly marked as payments made to his lawyer as legal fees were actually payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

In June, Trump was indicted on 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information, among other charges, in relation to the alleged retention of classified documents. Trump’s team has argued that under the Presidential Records Act, Trump had the authority to decide what records were able to be kept in his possession and what went to the National Archives at the end of his term.

Trump is now facing a potential third indictment in relation to January 6, with the GOP candidate receiving a letter calling Trump a "target of the January 6th Grand Jury," as well as another indictment in Georgia over the 2020 election.
