Just how scared is the Biden administration of Donald Trump that they would indict the former president?
Trump announced the news in a Thursday night Truth Social post shortly after prosecutors informed his lawyers about the indictment.
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax,” Trump wrote in the social media post that went on to criticize President Biden’s handling of classified material.
The seven charges are: willful retention of national defense information; conspiracy to obstruct justice; withholding a document or record; corruptly concealing a document or record; concealing a document in a federal investigation; scheme to conceal; and false statements and representations.
“I have been summoned to appear at the Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday, at 3 PM. I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States, who received far more votes than any sitting President in the History of our Country, and is currently leading, by far, all Candidates, both Democrat and Republican, in Polls of the 2024 Presidential Election. I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!” Trump wrote.
“This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America. We are a Country in serious and rapid Decline, but together we will Make America Great Again!” he said in a third Truth Social post on the indictment.
On Fox News Thursday night Trump said, “of course” he plans to plead not guilty next week and he slammed the federal indictment as “election interference at the highest level” and “the greatest witch hunt of all time.”
