What Donald Trump Said About His Indictment By Grand Jury

 

The grand jury’s indictment of him in connection with a purported hush money plot has been referred to by Donald Trump as “political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history.”

The declaration was made soon after a grand jury in New York City decided to indict the former president on Thursday, March 30, marking the first time a former US president has been charged with a crime.

 

During the final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign, Stormy Daniels allegedly received a payment of $130,000. Trump has refuted Daniels’s assertion that she had sex with him while they were married in 2006. To his then-lawyer, Trump had categorized his repayment of the money as a legal expense.

 

The former president is being looked into by the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office in relation to his alleged involvement in a cover-up and hush money payment plot involving adult film star Stormy Daniels that stretches back to the 2016 presidential election.

 

In a statement also shared on his Truth Social network, Trump accused “Radical Left Democrats” of a “Witch-Hunt to ruin the Make America Great Again campaign.”

 

“The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable – indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference,” Trump continued.

“You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this,” Trump said.

 

Trump repeated, without evidence, another frequent refrain about the “weaponization” of the justice system and continued his verbal assault on Bragg, accusing the district attorney of “doing Joe Biden’s dirty work.”

He finished with a rallying call to MAGA voters amid his campaign for the presidency in 2024.

 

“So our Movement, and our Party – united and strong – will first defeat Alvin Bragg, and then we will defeat Joe Biden, and we are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” he said.

 

In a follow-up post on Truth Social, Trump lashed out at “Thugs and Radical Left Monsters.” In all caps, he further called the indictment an attack on “our once free and fair elections” and the U.S. a “third world nation.”

 

In a further post, the former president said he “cannot get a fair trial in New York.”
