Donald Trump is never one to hold his tongue, and he surely did not do that after the Georgia indictment, his fourth, was handed down.
Up until an interview with Fox Business, we only had Trump on Truth Social for his response.
Well, if you thought his rants on Truth Social were something, wait until you hear what he had to say on Fox, reported CNN.
The indictment in Georgia is considered by many to be a one-sided investigation with an outcome that was predetermined.
Just in that case, if Trump is found guilty on all counts, he will do nearly 80 years in jail if the max sentence is handed down.
Ironically, it was only a few weeks ago when Trump was practically begging for an indictment.
At the time, Trump was touting his poll numbers, saying he only needed one more indictment to put him over the top. Now that the indictment has come down, his attitude has changed considerably.
Trump stated, “I have four of them now, if you look. I mean, this is not even possible.
“Four, over the next, last couple of months. And frankly, it discredits everything. And they’re all very similar in the sense that they’re, there’s no basis for them.”
Trump also took a shot at Republicans, stating that “the Republicans are great in many ways, but they don’t fight as hard for this stuff. And they have to get a lot tougher. And if they don’t they’re not going to have much of a Republican Party.”
Trump had planned to hold a presser on Thursday night, but the event was canceled at the last minute.
Trump explained on Truth Social, “Rather than releasing the Report on the Rigged & Stolen Georgia 2020 Presidential Election on Monday, my lawyers would prefer putting this, I believe, Irrefutable & Overwhelming evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities in formal Legal Filings as we fight to dismiss this disgraceful Indictment by a publicity & campaign finance seeking D.A., who sadly presides over a record-breaking Murder & Violent Crime area, Atlanta. Therefore, the News Conference is no longer necessary!”
While I believe this case is among the weakest against Trump, I fear it could also be the most difficult to win if it remains in Fulton County.
He is likely to get a Democrat-appointed judge as well as a jury that is mainly minorities. Considering how Democrats have painted him as a racist for the last few years, that cannot be good.
