The decade's most triggering comedy
Former President Donald Trump responded to his latest indictment on Tuesday afternoon by comparing the Biden administration to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
The 77-year-old former president was charged with Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding, Obstruction of and Attempt to Obstruct an Official Proceeding, and Conspiracy Against Rights.
“This is nothing more than the latest corrupt chapter in the continued pathetic attempt by the Biden Crime Family and their weaponized Department of Justice to interfere with the 2024 Presidential Election, in which President Trump is the undisputed frontrunner, and leading by substantial margins,” the Trump Campaign said in a statement that Trump himself posted to his social media account.
The statement said that the indictment from the federal grand jury was “election interference.”
“The lawlessness of these persecutions of President Trump and his supporters is reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, the former Soviet Union, and other authoritarian, dictatorial regimes,” the statement continued. “President Trump has always followed the law and the Constitution, with advice from many highly accomplished attorneys.”
The former president said that “these un-American witch hunts will fail” and he will return to the White House so he can “save our Country.”
The indictment says that Trump had every right to make false claims about the election and to challenge the results of the election. It says that the charges were related to specific actions that Trump took beyond making false claims and challenging the results in court.
The indictment listed six co-conspirators who it says were engaged in “criminal efforts to overturn” the results of the election:
