Trump Excoriates Democrats Over Years-Long 'Witch Hunt'

Recorded statement comes as two Democrat prosecutors consider filing criminal charges against the former President

Facing the possibility of multiple criminal indictments, former President Donald Trump took aim at Democrat prosecutors and a left-of-center establishment that has used the power of government to target him since 2016.

“These four horrible, radical-left Democrat investigations of your all-time Favorite President, me, is just a continuation of the most disgusting witch hunt in the history of our country,” Trump stated in a video posted to social media.

Trump made references to the six major legal attempts to either remove or prevent him from holding office: the 2016 investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia; his impeachment over a call placed to Ukraine’s president; the FBI raiding his home in Palm Beach, Florida over classified documents; the January 6 Select Committee investigation; a potential indictment coming from the Manhattan Attorney General; and a separate possible indictment that could be filed soon by Georgia authorities.

“Whether it’s the Mar-a-Lago raid, or the unselect committee hoax, the perfect Georgia phone — it was absolutely perfect — or the Stormy “Horse Face” Daniels extortion plot, they’re all sick and it’s fake news,” he told supporters.

Trump continued:

Our enemies are desperate to stop us because they know that we are the only ones who can stop them, and they know it very strongly and they’re looking at the polls where — not me — but we are up by so much, they can’t even believe it.

We won twice and now we’ve gotta win a third time. They know that we can defeat them. They know that we will defeat them, but they’re not coming after me. They’re coming after you. I’m just standing in their way and I always will stand in their way. Thank you very much.

The recorded statement comes as the nation watches to see if Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will indict Trump on charges connected with an alleged hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. This past weekend, Trump cited an unnamed leaker from the DA’s office who indicated that formal charges would likely be brought on Tuesday, March 21. His attorneys later said he was basing his comments on news reports rather than court information.

As of mid-afternoon on March 21, the grand jury weighing evidence in the case left for the day and was expected to re-convene on March 22 and vote on whether to bring charges.
