President Donald Trump stormed into what he called a “rigged trial” minutes after a 12-person Manhattan jury found him guilty of all 34 charges against him.

It was “a rigged trial.” A disgrace. They wouldn’t give us a change of venue,’ Trump complained, shortly after Judge Juan Merchán scheduled a sentencing conference in July that will help set any punishment he receives.

“The real verdict will be on November 5th from the people, and they know what happened here and everyone knows what happened here,” Trump said, pointing to Election Day.

Opinion polls have shown his popular vote lead over President Joe Biden growing even as the jury heard vulgar details of the “catch and kill” operations and testimony from porn star Stormy Daniels, who testified she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump’s lawyer denied it. an adventure throughout the trial.

He once again accused the Biden Administration of directing the prosecution brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who was inside the courtroom during the historic verdict. He called Bragg “Soros-backed,” referring to the financier.

“You have a Soros-backed district attorney and all that. We didn’t do anything wrong. “I’m a very innocent man,” Trump said.

Former US President Donald Trump called his trial a “disgrace” minutes after the jury found him guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records.

“This was done by the Biden administration to hurt or injure an opponent, a political opponent,” he said.

Soros, the Hungarian-American financier, did not donate campaign contributions to Bragg, but to a group that has donated to liberal prosecutors.

“We will fight to the end and we will win, because our country has gone to hell,” Trump said, echoing the attacks he has made inside the court in daily statements, where he always rejected questions.

And he attacked Judge Juan Merchán again, calling him ‘a troubled judge who should never have been allowed to judge this case.’ Never.’

Trump’s team is certain to appeal and may revisit recusal issues they raised unsuccessfully months ago.

Trump did not mention the New York jury, which deliberated for 10 hours on the case and spent a month inside a Manhattan Criminal Courtroom that Trump repeatedly called “freezing.”

Judge Merchan called the jury “involved and engaged” and told them: “You gave this matter the attention it deserved.”

The jury found Trump guilty of a series of counts of falsifying business records, including checks he signed and those tied to a Trump trust.

The Biden campaign issued its own statement shortly after the verdict.

“Today in New York we saw that no one is above the law,” said communications director Michael Tyler.

‘Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed that he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his personal gain. But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. “Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president,” he said.

On the contrary, the White House kept its distance. “We respect the rule of law and have no additional comment,” said Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House counsel’s office.

Trump, who has used the trial as a megaphone to repeat his campaign themes, said “we have a divided mess.” We are a nation in decline. In serious decline.

“Millions and millions of people are coming into our country right now from prisons and mental institutions, terrorists, and they are taking over our country,” Trump said, returning to his message on immigration.

The president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., posted his own response on TikTok with a headline that read “this verdict is a joke” with a photo of a clown.

He said it was part of a years-long effort to “turn America into an absolute shithole.”
