Former President Donald Trump went on a tirade, bringing new criticism of attorney Jack Smith for ramping up investigative efforts having to do with the classified documents found at Trump's Mar-a-lago home.
"The Special 'Prosecutor,' Jack Smith, who is harassing, threatening, and terrorizing people who work for me, probably illegally, and totally at odds with the way Crooked Joe Biden is being treated, will no longer be known as the Special 'Prosecutor,' but rather, the Special 'Persecutor,’" Trump wrote in Truth Social post.
"He is a Trump Hating SLIMEBALL who is going far beyond the original instructions of the Department of Injustice. The Witch Hunt continues, as it always will, with the Radical Left, Country Destroying, Lunatics!" Trump added to the rant.
He Will Not Stop...Ruthless...
It was reported that prosecutors have subpoenaed a number of Trump employees in connection to the handling of surveillance footage at Mar-a-Lago after a subpoena was issued to the Trump Organization for the tapes.
Those subpoenas mark a major development in the classified documents investigation as it pits some of Trump’s closest allies as witnesses against him.
Trump faces a number of other criminal investigations and trials, with developments occurring across the East Coast on Friday evening — possibly contributing to Trump’s outburst.
"Attorneys rested their respective cases in Manhattan federal court on Thursday in the defamation trial of former magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll, who accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s and later sued after he claimed she lied about the allegations," reported Washington Examiner. "Trump did not testify in the trial and has repeatedly denied all wrongdoing."
Additionally, it was reported at the end of last week that at least eight of the so-called "Republican fake electors" has accepted deals that will give them immunity as the criminal investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
Trump followed up his first Truth Social rant with a second one that seemingly responded to all the investigative updates — warning Americans that it is a "dangerous" time.
"All of these Fake Prosecutions are merely being done to Interfere with, and Influence, our Elections," he wrote. "It is a dangerous time in America!!!"
