President Trump continues to remain defiant and lashing out at Special Counsel Jack Smith, the DOJ, and President Joe Biden over the legal battles he is currently fighting, maintaining that the cases and investigations are politically motivated and meant to hurt him, not effect justice in America.
Particularly, he did so on Truth Social after the Supreme Court rejected a request from Special Counsel Jack Smith to immediately hear a claim from President Trump that he is protected from prosecution in the election case by presidential immunity.
Declaring something of a victory and commenting on what he sees as the ridiculousness of the case, Trump wrote, “The Supreme Court has unanimously rejected Deranged Jack Smith’s “SUPER SPEEDY” lawsuit against me. This sick puppies team of Lowlifes and Radical Left Thugs could have brought this “case” 3 years ago, and it would be long over by now. No, they waited until right in the middle of my very successful campaign for President.”
Continuing, he wrote that he thinks the case is politically motivated and meant to sink his poll numbers, writing, “If I were polling poorly, like everyone else against me is (including Crooked Joe Biden!), or, for some reason, I decided not to run, they never would have even brought this ridiculous and disgraceful lawsuit. It is Election Interference like never before seen in our Country.”
He then added, “In a certain way, it is real “insurrection,” especially when adding the millions of people, from places unknown, that the worst President in the history of the United States is allowing to pour into our Country, totally unchecked and unvetted. This insane Open Border’s decision will prove to be a mistake for the ages, but I will fix it. MAGA!!!”
In a separate but similar post on the matter and SCOTUS ruling, Trump wrote, “The Supreme Court has unanimously rejected Deranged Jack Smith’s desperate attempt to short circuit our Great Constitution. Crooked Joe Biden and his henchmen waited three years to bring this sham case, and now they have tried and failed to rush this Witch Hunt through the courts.”
Continuing in that post, he argued that he deserves immunity, writing, “Of course I am entitled to Presidential Immunity. I was President, it was my right and duty to investigate, and speak on, the rigged and stolen 2020 Presidential Election. Looking forward to the very important arguments on Presidential Immunity in front of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. Make America Great Again!”
However, a conservative attorney on CNN recently argued that the SCOTUS decision was not a major victory for Trump, saying, “I think it’s not a big deal because I don’t think it’s going to affect the schedule that much, and I think it actually shows the weakness of Donald Trump’s immunity claim. And I say it as somebody, as Norm Eisen said to me in the green room, I’m the only person in the universe who ever won, wrote a brief that won, a Supreme Court immunity case… that was against the president — Bill Clinton, Paula Jones.”
In a different post, Trump alleged that President Biden has pressured the DOJ into investigating him, arguing thathe tactic was reminiscent of those used by tin pot dictators in banana republics. He wrote, “Crooked Joe Biden has pushed DOJ to prosecute his Political Opponent. I told you so! He can’t fight for himself because he is defenseless and inept, so he is using his Justice Department to do the campaigning for him. Banana Republic. FIGHT FAIR AND SQUARE JOE. DROP THE FAKE POLITICAL INDICTMENTS. A VERY DANGEROUS PRECEDENT IS BEING SET!!!”
