Former President Donald Trump has been indicted in federal court in Miami in connection with his retention of classified government documents he retained after leaving the White House.
Trump himself disclosed the indictment in a series of posts on his Truth Social social media site on Thursday evening. He also said he has been summoned to appear in court in Miami on Tuesday…
“I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States, who received far more votes than any sitting President in the History of our Country, and is currently leading, by far, all Candidates, both Democrat and Republican, in Polls of the 2024 Presidential Election,” Trump wrote.
“I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America,” he wrote.
Trump in his social media posts wrote: “The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is “secured” by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
“We are a Country in serious and rapid Decline, but together we will Make America Great Again!”
And while Trump supporters like Josh Hawley are reacting to the news with dire warnings: “If the people in power can jail their political opponents at will, we don’t have a republic,” sound minds easily correct the misassumption about what is happening with Trump: “Fortunately that’s not what’s happening here. Trump will receive due process. He’ll get a trial. He’ll have the right to appeal. He’s arguably the most powerful criminal defendant in American history.”
