Trump Proclaims His Innocence In The Face Of Democratic Persecution

Former President Donald Trump proclaimed his innocence in the face of this week’s unprecedented indictment on charges related to handling of classified documents.

In his words, “I am an innocent man. The Biden administration is totally corrupt. This is election interference & a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time. Make America great again!!!”

Trump on Wednesday announced that his legal team had been informed that he was under indictment on federal charges. In a statement, he revealed that he was summoned to appear in a federal courthouse in Miami on Tuesday.

The former president noted that Biden “has 1850 boxes at the University of Delaware, additional boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more boxes at the University of Pennsylvania.”

Trump further referenced the discovery of classified documents in Biden’s Delaware garage. He mocked the “storage” as being secured by a “paper thin” garage door and near the president’s prized Corvette.

The 37-count criminal indictment was unsealed Friday, much to the delight of Democrats in their never-ending quest to pin anything on Trump. He is accused of, among other charges, showing the classified documents to other people in the summer of 2021.

Thursday’s news marks the second indictment of Trump in 2023. He pled not guilty in April to 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree filed by radical Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Trump posted Thursday that he “never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to the former President of the United States.” He noted that he is leading “by far” all candidates both Democrat and Republican for the 2024 presidential election.

He called it a “dark day” in U.S. history.

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation came after allegations of improper holding of classified materials at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. The National Archives said 15 boxes of presidential records were at the home, including “classified national security.”

In the August raid, some of the classified materials seized were made public. They included a letter to Trump from former President Barack Obama, correspondence from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, a menu from a birthday dinner, and a cocktail napkin.
