The 76-year-old, who has pleaded 'not guilty' in a New York court to 34 criminal counts, has also claimed that Democrats spied on his campaign.
Former President Donald Trump made a jab at Joe Biden’s administration while speaking at a public event on Tuesday night. Addressing supporters from his Mar-a-Lago property, Trump mentioned the Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal saying, “The FBI and Department of Justice in collusion with Twitter and Facebook in order not to say anything bad about the Hunter Biden laptop from hell, which exposes the Biden family as criminals and which, according to the pollsters would have made a 17 point difference in the election result, we needed a lot less than that, 16.9, it would have been in our favor because our country is going to hell.”
The 76-year-old, who has pleaded ‘not guilty’ in a New York court to 34 criminal counts, has also claimed that Democrats spied on his campaign.
“This could happen in America. Never thought it could happen. The only crime that I have committed is to fearlessly defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it. From the beginning, the Democrats spied on my campaign. Remember that? They attacked me with an onslaught of fraudulent investigations,” Trump said.
“Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine. Impeachment hoax number one. Impeachment hoax number two. The illegal and unconstitutional raid on Mar a Lago right here.The lying to the Pfizer courts. The FBI and DOJ relentlessly pursuing Republicans, the unconstitutional changes to election laws by not getting approvals from state legislators, the millions of votes illegally stuffed into ballot boxes and all caught on government cameras,” he added.
Donald Trump was charged with three pre-election hush-money instances during his arraignment in New York. Trump is facing criminal charges for his alleged role in 36 felony criminal offenses, including a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign to cover up an alleged affair that he has repeatedly denied.
The attorney referenced three instances of the ‘catch and kill’ plot in Donald Trump’s indictment in the statement.
“In one instance, American Media Inc. (“AMI”), paid USD 30,000 to a former Trump Tower doorman, who claimed to have a story about a child TRUMP had out of wedlock,” Bragg said in a statement.
The attorney also alleged that the AMI was paid in the amount of USD 150,000 to the lady who claimed to have a sexual relationship with Trump. In addition, the former President instructed his lawyer to reimburse AMI in cash. In an agreement with federal authorities, AMI recognised its conduct was illegal and that it created false entries in its business records about the genuine purpose of the USD 150,000 payment.
“In a third instance – 12 days before the presidential general election – the Special Counsel wired USD 130,000 to an attorney for an adult film actress. The Special Counsel, who has since pleaded guilty and served time in prison for making the illegal campaign contribution, made the payment through a shell corporation funded through a bank in Manhattan,” the statement read.
During the 2016 election, Trump and others used a “catch and kill” strategy to find, purchase, and bury unfavorable information about him to increase his electoral prospects, according to Bragg.
