TRUMP SLAMS PROSECUTORIAL ATTACKS: ‘IT’S NOT AN INVESTIGATION, IT’S A PERSECUTION’
When discussing the ongoing investigations that have been conducted against him since he began his 2024 presidential campaign, Donald Trump did not hold back.
The president criticized the Manhattan district attorney’s office and New York Attorney General Letitia James for their ongoing inquiries into his finances and private affairs in remarks he made at the NRA Conference on Friday night in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“Instead of getting these dangerous criminals into jail,” Trump pointed out, “…[they are] subverting the law to attack conservative people, and religious people, evangelicals, Christians.”
Trump referred to James as a “maniac” and a “racist in reverse,” bringing up her earlier campaign promises to fight the president if she was elected attorney general of New York State. He said, “It’s not an investigation, it’s a persecution.”
Also, he exposed the shocking disparity in treatment between Joe Biden’s countless document controversies and the inquiry into classified documents at Mar-a-Lago by the legal system.
“Biden has 1,850 boxes that are unaccounted for,” Trump said. “He had many boxes in Chinatown, classified information. They sent them up to Boston and they sit up in Boston and then it was revealed that he got millions of dollars from the Chinese…They don’t care about that, they only care about Trump.”
In what he referred to as “Soviet-style” prosecutorial abuse, he said that his adversaries were “seeking to arrest their political opposition.”
“They’re not coming after me, they’re coming after you and I’m just sort of in the way of these people,” he concluded.
