BREAKING NEWS: Trump insists there was “no crime, period” and now says Manhattan Democratic prosecutors should be investigated for “interfering” in the election as the White House says it is NOT preparing for riots if they are arrested to the former president
- Trump posted on Truth Social Sunday that he is not guilty of committing any crime, not even a misdemeanor.
- He called for an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who will likely charge Trump with falsifying business records.
- The former president has said he expects to be arrested on Tuesday.
Former President Donald Trump insisted on Sunday that there was “no wrongdoing” related to the payments he allegedly made to porn star Stormy Daniels and demanded that New York Democratic prosecutors be investigated for “interfering” in the election.
The former president has said he expects to be arrested Tuesday on New York state charges related to a payment he made before the 2016 presidential election, urging his supporters to “protest, protest, protest.”
Prosecutors argue that he violated a New York law that prohibits falsifying business records when he marked a $130,000 payment to Daniels as “legal expenses.”
But Trump asserted Sunday that he is not guilty of any crime, not even a misdemeanor, criticizing “prosecutor misconduct and election interference.”
“Investigate the investigators,” he urged.
Former President Donald Trump insisted he is not guilty of any crime in a post on Truth Social Sunday. He is shown here saluting at the NCAA Division 1 wrestling championships on Saturday.
In his lengthy post on Sunday, Trump hit out at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
In his lengthy post Sunday, Trump lashed out at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is expected to indict the former president on criminal charges in the coming days.
“When Alvin Bragg first took office, he made it very clear that, like many other prosecutors, there would be no case against Donald J. Trump,” he wrote. Then the Biden administration, the Democrats and the fake media started to push him, and push him hard, and lo and behold, he said there might be a case after all.
“I knew what that meant: I was being pressured to do something that shouldn’t be done,” Trump said. ‘He was not willing to stand up to Soros and the Marxists who are destroying our country!’
Then, in a follow-up post, Trump insisted there was “no crime, period.”
“Everyone else out of the many Democratic law enforcement officers who looked at it, they missed it,” he noted. ‘Also Cy Vance, and also Bragg. But then much later (sic). he changed his mind. Gee, I wonder why.
At the time, Trump accused Bragg of “prosecutor misconduct” and “interference in an election,” while calling for an investigation into Bragg’s investigation.
The New York City district attorney had presented evidence to a New York grand jury about paying Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence about an alleged affair.
The payment was listed as “legal fees” which Bragg’s office says is a violation of New York law prohibiting the falsification of business records.
Trump has repeatedly denied these claims, and his lawyer has accused Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, of racketeering.
Still, he refused to testify before the grand jury in his case.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is said to be about to indict the former president over hush money payments he made to Stormy Daniels.
Daniels has come forward to discuss the matter and detailed how he received $130,000 from the Trump campaign.
