Former President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Breitbart News Thursday evening where he told the outlet that Special Counsel Jack Smith’s latest indictment against him is “harassment.” And you know what? It kind of is, isn’t it? All of these charges and indictments conveniently hit during the primary season, just before the 2024 presidential election where Trump is far and away the lead candidate to potentially have a rematch with old and cognitively challenged Joe Biden? The fact some will say this is a coincidence strains credulity to say the least, don’t you agree?
According to Breitbart, “Trump, who made the comments during a nearly hourlong exclusive on-camera interview at his golf club here, is now facing additional charges from Democrat President Joe Biden’s Justice Department. In addition, a third defendant, Carlos De Oliveira—Mar-a-Lago’s head of maintenance—now also faces charges, joining Trump and Trump valet Walt Nauta. Trump said the Presidential Records Act should protect him, and bashed the DOJ for coming after him but ignoring Biden. Trump argued the way Biden handled documents was reckless.”
“I just heard it as I’m sitting down. This is harassment. This is election interference,” the former president stated when he was asked to give a response to the superseding indictment and additional charges being made by him. “I’m protected by the Presidential Records Act totally. It shouldn’t even be a case. It’s not a criminal case. Where’s Biden with all the documents? He’s got 20 times, 30 times the documents I have, and he has not made it easy for them either. He has been hiding boxes. They’re sending boxes to Chinatown. Boxes are being sent to Chinatown, and yet China is paying them millions of dollars. You explain that one. You don’t even hear about it. All you hear about is Trump. No, this is a two-tier system of injustice. That’s what we have. We have a sick country. Our country is very sick right now. We have a failing nation and it’s a very sad thing to watch.”
The interview came just moments after the Special Counsel’s office revealed the superseding indictment, which will add on extra charges against the former president, along with Nauta, and also brings De Oliveira in as a defendant. So what is the main charge being leveled against him this time? Smith is alleging that Trump and the other defendants in the case tried to delete security camera footage at the Florida Mar-a-Lago estate while the FBI was conducting its raid last summer.
Steven Cheung, a spokesman for Trump, put Smith and the new indictment on blast calling it a “continued desperate and flailing attempt by the Biden Crime Family and their Department of Justice to harass President Trump and those around him.”
The report added, ““Trump also told Breitbart News that if elected president again—he is currently the leading GOP candidate for the White House—he would fire Smith. Trump also cited failed cases Smith’s office has brought against other politicians from both political parties, particularly the cases his office failed on against former Virginia GOP Gov. Bob McDonnell and against former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC). In the McDonnell case, the conviction Smith’s office obtained was overturned unanimously by the U.S. Supreme Court. In the Edwards case, charges Smith’s office brought failed—Edwards was acquitted on one, and the jury deadlocked on the others, with the DOJ not retrying him in the end.”
“I wouldn’t keep him,” Trump answered after being asked if he would give Smith his pink slip. “Jack Smith? Why would I keep him? He is—look, he’s gone after other people. He’s been overturned unanimously in the Supreme Court. He’s destroyed a lot of lives. Lives have been destroyed. He’s destroyed people—he’s destroyed lives… He was Lois Lerner and the IRS case, which was one of the most egregious abuses what happened. The government had to apologize to people. He went after Christians. This is a guy—he’s a wild man. I call him deranged. He’s been overturned. He went after the governor of Virginia—overturned unanimously. He went after another senator or something and was overturned. What he’s done is just horrible. The abuse of power—it is prosecutorial misconduct.”
Trump further commented on matters later in the interview, saying, “I think they’ll end up being an embarrassment to the Democrats and an embarrassment to our country and they have lifted my poll numbers, in all fairness. They didn’t want to run against me. That’s why they did it. They did this so I wouldn’t get the nomination. It’s actually had the reverse effect. It’s lifted my numbers—but I was winning anyway by a lot. Now the polls just came out today and I’m winning by like 40 points, 45 points, and I’m also beating Biden by a lot—and DeSantis, or DeSanctimonious as I call him, is losing very badly to Biden. I’m winning by a lot to Biden. They don’t want to run against me, that’s why they did it. It’s had a reverse impact because the public is smart and they see this stuff for now, mayb,e a January 6 case—maybe not too—because I did nothing wrong. But what they’re doing, it’s not been received very well by the public, because the poll numbers are through the roof. They did this in order to get me out. It’s incredible, because the public gets it and it had the opposite impact.”
The left is terrified over the prospects of a second Trump administration. What we all need to ask ourselves is why? He stands up to the radical progressives who are seeking to destroy the nation we love. Trump does what he says. He keeps his promises. That’s a dangerous man in our modern times.
