In the wake of Monday’s indictment targeting former President Donald Trump, his campaign issued a fiery statement decrying what it calls the “latest corrupt chapter” in attempts to interfere with the 2024 Presidential Election.
This afternoon Trump declared that he expects a new indictment from Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is investigating the events surrounding the January 6th Capitol Hill riot.
The full statement reads:
This is nothing more than the latest corrupt chapter in the continued pathetic attempt by the Biden Crime Family and their weaponized Department of Justice to interfere with the 2024 Presidential Election, in which President Trump is the undisputed frontrunner, and leading by substantial margins.
But why did they wait two and a half years to bring these fake charges, right in the middle of President Trump’s winning campaign for 2024? Why was it announced the day after the big Crooked Joe Biden scandal broke out from the Halls of Congress?
The answer is, election interference! The lawlessness of these persecutions of President Trump and his supporters is reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, the former Soviet Union, and other authoritarian, dictatorial regimes. President Trump has always followed the law and the Constitution, with advice from many highly accomplished attorneys.
These un-American witch hunts will fail and President Trump will be re-elected to the White House so he can save our Country from the abuse, incompetence, and corruption that is running through the veins of our Country at levels never seen before. Three years ago we had strong borders, energy independence, no inflation, and a great economy. Today, we are a nation in decline. President Trump will not be deterred by disgraceful and unprecedented political targeting!
On July 18, former President Donald Trump made an announcement stating that he had received a letter from special counsel Jack Smith, informing him that he is the target of a grand jury investigation into the Jan. 6 riot and the attempts to overturn the 2020 election. A target letter, a traditional signal of potential prosecution, indicated that Smith planned to charge him relatively soon.
This may include three potential criminal charges; conspiracy to defraud the government, obstruction of an official proceeding, and a lesser-known statute, U.S. Code Title 18 Section 241, which was enacted post-Civil War to curtail groups like the Ku Klux Klan from preventing newly freed slaves from voting.
Trump vented similar frustration on his social media platform, Truth Social, stating, “I hear that Deranged Jack Smith, in order to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024, will be putting out yet another Fake Indictment of your favorite President, me, at 5:00 P.M.”
“Why didn’t they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long? Because they wanted to put it right in the middle of my campaign. Prosecutorial Misconduct!” he finished. This morning, members of the grand jury involved in the Jan. 6 investigation were observed at the courthouse.
In a second post, he asked, “Also, why are they putting out another Fake Indictment the day after the Crooked Joe Biden SCANDAL, one of the biggest in American history, broke out in the Halls of Congress??? A Nation In Decline!”
Amidst these legal issues, Trump’s political operation is facing significant financial costs, amounting to millions of dollars.
The potential indictment marks a serious turn in Trump’s numerous legal challenges following his presidency. An indictment related to January 6th would require Trump to return to D.C. for an arraignment.
