“This is a political prosecution, it has to be,” Selvig said during the interview. “That’s the only way it could be happening right now.”
“The only other option is that Donald Trump lost by 7 million votes and is a loser who can’t deal with the fact that he lost the election because he based his whole personality on being a winner and calling people losers," he added.

Selvig's remarks come as Republican leaders and lawmakers have thrown allegations of political motivation at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over his office's investigation into a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, with whom Trump allegedly had an affair.
Lawmakers like House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have all verbalized their concerns.
As Republicans rally behind Trump in the midst of this investigation, there are also predictions about a possible arrest and indictment of the former president — and how such actions may shift the presidential campaign trajectory in Trump's favor.
"If you want to talk about how to unify Republicans behind Donald Trump in the primary, having an unhinged left-wing prosecution, complete with perhaps a perp walk for the cameras, that ends up being thrown out and ends in failure could be the single biggest in-kind gift to the Donald Trump campaign of this entire cycle,” Cruz (R-Texas) said during a segment of his podcast on Monday, March 20.
Although Trump has warned that he could be arrested as early as today, no arrest has been made, as of yet.
