Former President Donald Trump literally breathed fire, calling the ‘FBI and DoJ as vicious monsters’ even as the Department of Justice (DoJ) sat on the horns of a dilemma on whether to launch criminal prosecution against Trump before the election authorities enforce the 60-day deadline during which no legal action can be taken against candidates on the ballot.
This would be tantamount to influencing the elections, legal experts said. So, the DoJ may not be able to do this overtly but nothing prevented them from continuing an ongoing investigation internally like speaking to people around Trump to get at corroborating evidence on the FBI raid, media reports said.
“The FBI and the Justice Department have become vicious monsters, controlled by radical left scoundrels, lawyers and the media, who tell them what to do,” said Trump in reference to the search that took place last month.
He was speaking at a huge election rally in Wilkes-Barre, Penn, in support of Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano.
Trump slamming the FBI in his first public speech after the agency’s search of his Mar-a-Lago home was in stark contrast to Biden’s speech earlier on in Philadelphia, also in Pennsylvania, where he accused the former President and his supporting republican allies of presenting a ‘clear and present danger’ to the foundations of democracy and the republic.
But Biden chewed on his words later saying he didn’t say the entire MAGA was a threat but those supporting the capitol hill insurrection, apparently not to disengage a section of the republicans distancing themselves from Trump.
The FBI warrant issued by Judge Bruce Reinhart justified the FBI’s search of the former presidents Florida residence and on his order subsequently released some documents with heavy redactions last week, following a court battle, found evidence that classified documents might have been illegally stored at Trump’s home despite an order for him to return them after he left office.
Later a former Trump lawyer claimed that Trump could have stashed copies of classified documents in his office in Manhattan Trump Towers and his children’s home in New York to be used as a bargaining chip for escape from prosecution and his eventual freedom. ‘The shameful raid and break-in of my home in Mar-a-Lago was a travesty of justice that made a mockery of America’s laws, traditions and principles,’ Trump said at the rally, calling it ‘one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history.’
Trump also criticised President Joe Biden’s speech on Thursday in Philadelphia, Penn., rejecting the incumbent President’s claim that Trump is ‘a clear and present danger’ to the country and calling Biden ‘the enemy of the state.’
“As you know, this week Joe Biden came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to give the most vicious, hateful and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president, vilifying 75 million citizens plus another probably 75-150 if we want to be accurate about it, as threats to democracy and as enemies of the state,” he said.
The rally, with attendees including Republican figures Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Maryland gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox, featured comments by Oz and Mastriano. Oz criticized the Biden administration’s response to COVID-19, saying that ‘we saw ideas crushed’ during the pandemic.
“We saw science weaponized,” he continued. Mastriano expressed similar discontentment with Biden and his allies. “The Democrats are trying to distract us with their dirty stinking laundry list of bad ideas,” he claimed. “We the people are pissed, I know I am,” Trump said.
Meanwhile, the Department of Justice was sitting on the horns of a dilemma whether to launch criminal proceedings against the former president following the classified documents seizure at his Florida residence as the 60-day rule could come into effect that blocks prosecutors from moving forward with criminal investigations of political figures just before an election in the case of Donald Trump.
