WASHINGTON D.C. – Democrats are threatening the very existence of the United States by flaunting the rule of law through the systematic persecution of their political opponent and GOP Presidential frontrunner former President Donald J. Trump.
President Trump has now been indicted on seven counts in the special counsel’s classified documents probe, a stunning development that marks the first time a former president has faced federal charges.
According to sources, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy tweeted that it was “a dark day for the United States of America.”
“It is unconscionable for a President to indict the leading candidate opposing him. Joe Biden kept classified documents for decades,” the California Republican said.
“The radical Far Left will stop at nothing to interfere with the 2024 election in order to prop up the catastrophic presidency and desperate campaign of Joe Biden,” House GOP conference chairwoman Elise Stefanik, a New York Republican, said in a statement.
During an exclusive interview with Fox News Thursday night, Trump said the case is "election interference" and "the greatest witch hunt of all time." Trump said he will "of course" plead not guilty to charges in federal court on Tuesday, and said he is "totally innocent."
"This is the most corrupt administration in history—there has never been an administration so corrupt, and they’re just starting to find it right now," Trump told Fox News Digital. "They are trying to deflect all of their dishonesty by bringing this ridiculous boxes hoax case."
He added: "They’re not going to get away with it."
