Former President Donald Trump condemned his “political persecution” as a day that will “go down in infamy.”
“Today we witnessed the most evil and heinous abuse of power in the history of our country — very sad thing to watch,” said Trump to his donors and supporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey, summer home Tuesday evening in a speech that aired live on several news stations.
“This corrupt sitting president had his top political opponent arrested on fake and fabricated charges — of which he and numerous other presidents would be guilty — right in the middle of a presidential election in which he is losing very badly,” said Trump.
“This is called election interference and yet another attempt to rig and steal a presidential election. More importantly, it’s a political persecution, like something straight out of a fascist or communist nation. This day will go down in infamy, and Joe Biden will forever be remembered as not only the most corrupt president in the history of our country but, perhaps even more importantly, the president who — together with the band of his closest thugs, misfits, and Marxists — tried to destroy American democracy,” he continued. “But they will fail, and we will win bigger and better than ever before.”
President Trump stated his case against special counsel Jack Smith’s 37-count federal indictment.
“Under the Presidential Records Act, which is civil, not criminal, I had every right to have these documents,” continued Trump. “The crucial legal precedent is laid out in the most important case ever on this subject, known as the Clinton socks case.”
The case was used as a legal precedent, as federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled in 2012 in former President Bill Clinton’s case to keep secret presidential tapes in his sock drawer.
“Not only was Bill Clinton never even considered for criminal prosecution based on the tapes he took, but when was sued for them, he won the case,” said Trump.
While reading his prepared remarks, the former president frequently went off script, telling stories in his typical rally style.
“The prosecutor in the case — I will call it our case — is a thug,” said Trump. “I’ve named him deranged Jack Smith.”
“It’s no wonder this raging lunatic was shipped off to the Hague to prosecute war criminals using globalist tribunals not beholden to the Constitution or the rule of law,” continued Trump.
“He looks like a thug, but then I watched him make a speech the other day, and he was trembling because it wasn’t his territory. He feels much safer in the inner sanctums of the Department of Injustice, where you can be in his room and scream at people.”
“He’s a raging and uncontrolled Trump hater, as is his wife, who also happened to be the producer of that Michelle Obama puff piece. Total puff piece. This is the guy I’ve got,” he continued.
Trump hailed members of House GOP for revealing alleged $10 Biden bribery scheme
Trump also took time to hail members of the House GOP revealing the alleged Biden $10 million bribery scheme with Ukraine energy company Burisma.
“Remember, they impeached me for asking a simple question about Biden’s corrupt dealings in Ukraine, and now they see that once again: I was right,” said Trump. “I was right. I was totally right.”
“Joe Biden and the radical left can take foreign bribes and be totally protected.”
However, Trump continued to urge Republicans to get tougher on pursuing Biden’s potential criminal activities, which he maintains has led to his own prosecution by the special counsel.
“Republicans,” he said. “All of you must finally get tough. “You’ve got to get tough. You got to get tough, and you’ve got to show them. When you arrest your leading political opponent, we no longer have a democracy.
The former president finished with a vow to turn the tables back on Democrats, including President Biden, saying, “Justice will be done.”
“They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you,” he concluded.
“They want you to be silent. And I am the only one that can save this nation because, you know, they’re not coming after me; they’re coming after you, and I just happen to be standing in their way, and I will never be moved.”
“On November 5, 2024, justice will be done. We will take back our country, and we will make America great again.”
