In a fiery response, former President Donald Trump criticized prosecutors who are pursuing multiple cases against him, targeting both the New York Attorney General Letitia James and special counsel Jack Smith. Trump accused James of failing to provide sufficient evidence in her civil case against him, while he accused Smith of leaking details about the documents case in Florida. The case in question involves classified documents that Trump brought to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, and his alleged efforts to impede archivists from retrieving them.

A recent CNN report claimed that workers at Mar-a-Lago could potentially be called as witnesses against the former president. Trump expressed his displeasure with Smith, labeling him as a “Deranged Prosecutor” and his team as “Radical Left Lunatics.” He suggested that the workers at Mar-a-Lago may have seen the boxes of sensitive materials, but argued that he had the right to possess those documents as a former president under the Presidential Records Act. Trump even claimed that he provided security tapes to the prosecutors at their request, calling them “Election Interfering Thugs.”
Not one to miss an opportunity, Trump took the opportunity to divert attention to President Biden, questioning the investigation into classified records from Biden’s time as vice president. He made reference to papers, boxes, and documents found at various locations associated with Biden, such as his garage floor by his cherished Corvette, as well as CHINATOWN where it was recently revealed that boxes moved freely in and out. Trump questioned the amount of money spent investigating Biden’s alleged wrongdoing, mocking it as the “much bigger boxes deal.”
Facing multiple legal battles, Trump maintained his innocence and accused Democrats of orchestrating a coordinated effort to impede his 2024 presidential campaign. Despite the ongoing cases, he remains the leading candidate in the GOP primary field according to polls. Currently, he is also engaged in a civil case in New York that accuses the Trump Organization of submitting fraudulent financial statements to gain favorable loan and insurance terms. Trump expressed confidence in his defense, asserting that he has “TOTALLY WON THIS CASE, which should never have been brought.” Ultimately, the verdict rests in the hands of Judge Arthur Engoron, who will decide whether to grant Trump’s request for a directed verdict in his favor. The trial is expected to resume next week with Donald Trump Jr., the ex-president’s eldest child, as the first witness for the defense.
