Former President Donald Trump, who's been in news for a hush money scheme, might get arrested by the Manhattan district attorney. And former Vice President Mike Pence think that the potential arrest would be a "politically charged prosecution."

Pence said in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC News' "This Week," that he was "taken aback the idea of indicting a former president" of America when there's a "crime wave in New York City."

He noted that the fact that the Manhattan District Attorney thinks that indicting the former President is his top priority, it tells you "everything you need to know about the radical left" in the U.S.

He said that it feels like a "politically charged prosecution here," and feels like it's "not what the American people want to see."

Pence pointed out that the U.S. was facing other issues like high prices due to inflation, the border crisis as well as the Russia-Ukraine war.

He shared that the people in America are anxious about the future and "here we go again, back into another politically charged prosecution directed at the former president of the U.S." He just hopes for better.

This comes after Trump wrote on Truth Social Saturday that he would be arrested by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Tuesday. It is for an alleged $130,000 hush money scheme involving him and porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 Presidential election. Then he called on his supporters to "protest."​

He wrote that the leading Republican candidate (for the 2024 Presidential election) and former President of the U.S. will be "arrested on Tuesday of next week," and then he told his followers to "protest, take our nation back!"

In the new interview, Pence was asked about how the words Trump used in his social media post were similar to his comments before his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. It was done in an attempt to disrupt the 2020 presidential election, which Joe Biden won, reported New York Post.

Pence said that he believes that the people in America are frustrated by a "two-tier justice system in this country."

​He believes that people understand that if they "give voice to this, if this occurs on Tuesday, that they need to do so peacefully and in a lawful manner."

Pence, who served in his role as Senate President in 2021, was pressed by Trump to reject the 2020 Presidential election results. But the then-Vice President refused, and said that he did not have the constitutional authority to do so.
