One legal expert torched the possibility of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg arresting former President Donald Trump - calling it "Banana Republic sort of stuff" as he reportedly weighs an indictment.
But many legal experts have cast doubt on the potential indictment, often arguing there is little legal precedent, alongside political motivation, surrounding the case.
"This is a really serious time because this is Banana Republic sort of stuff," Francey said during "Fox & Friends Weekend."
"Using the law as a weapon against a political opponent is so wrong.
FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.
Tacopina and other legal experts have argued Bragg's potential indictment hinges on unchartered legal waters, further indicating the political nature of the potential arrest.
"The feds declined to prosecute, the Federal Election Commission declined to prosecute, yet Alvin Bragg thinks he has a crime here," she continued.
Bragg's office has not yet commented or confirmed the news of Trump's potential arrest.
In a subsequent appearance on ‘Fox & Friends Weekend,' Sunday, he called the potential arrest "preposterous."
Regardless, Wisenberg called the potential charges targeting Trump a "weak sister case" while noting significant legitimacy concerns.
"Number one, because it would never be prosecuted this late against anybody else," Wisenberg said.
"So there are real questions here, whether or not it ultimately stands up because of statute of limitations… and other concerns," he continued.
