Trump: Indictment Won’t Stop Me From Running For President

The nation would face “issues… the likes of which possibly we’ve never seen,” the former president Donald Trump said on Thursday, if the Biden-Harris administration indicted him. The obvious consequence is that such an extraordinary action may inspire conservatives to oppose the Biden-Harris administration.

Hugh Hewitt, a conservative radio personality, and Trump had a talk. During Hewitt’s broadcast, he clarified that being indicted wouldn’t bar him from running for president once more.

He implied that the American people would oppose an ex-President going to jail. “The public won’t tolerate this behavior. The FBI and the Department of Justice have been turned into weapons.

Trump told Hewitt, “If anything like that happened, I would have no bar against running.” “If it did, I believe you would have challenges in this nation that may be unlike anything we have ever experienced. The American people, in my opinion, wouldn’t tolerate it.

“They’d have serious issues, in my opinion. Big issues. They simply wouldn’t tolerate it, in my opinion. They won’t remain silent and support this greatest of falsehoods, according to Trump.

According to Conservative Brief, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said there would be “riots in the street” if “Donald Trump is prosecuted for mishandling confidential material” in August.

There is a double standard when it comes to Trump, Graham said Fox News.

There would be rioting in the streets, Graham said, if Donald Trump is charged with handling confidential material following the Clinton scandal.

Hewitt anticipated that Trump’s fear would be seen as “inciting violence” by the mainstream media. That is not incitement. I’m simply expressing my viewpoint,” Trump retorted. “I don’t believe the citizens of this nation would support it,”

As though by magic Dick Durbin of Illinois, the chair of the senate’s democratic judiciary committee, warned reporters on Thursday that “inviting a mob to return to the streets is precisely what happened here on January 6, 2021.” We witnessed the outcomes because this president understood what he was doing, according to Politico. His irresponsible, incendiary speech, according to Durbin, “had its effects.”

Sen. Maize Hirono of Hawaii gave a fiery statement on Wednesday and left the Senate after what she described as “truly a call to arms in our country,” but Durbin obviously seemed to have forgotten about it.

When comparing the two sets of comments, the distinction is obvious: Trump’s remarks serve as a warning and are intended to stop a disaster. He’s advising against doing something. Hirono’s are unmistakably made to incite aggressive behavior that is motivated by extreme leftist wrath. Trump made an assertion, while Hirono urged action.

Political experts have cautioned that comparable violence like the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, which resulted in seven fatalities and more than 140 injuries to police officers, might occur in the US.

According to Carole Emberton, a history professor at the University at Buffalo who specializes in the American Civil War, “when you have politicians who are agitating everyone and law enforcement that is sort of wishy-washy or weak in its response, then I think you have a really volatile mix that emboldens these kinds of groups to continue with what they’re doing.”

There are now a number of investigations regarding the former president in addition to the Justice Department’s inquiry into Trump’s management of federal documents.

If Trump and his cronies try to tamper with Georgia’s 2020 election results, a criminal inquiry is being carried out by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The Trump Organization and its business operations are the subject of a civil investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James. A House select committee is also looking into Trump’s involvement in the attack on the US Capitol.

In the conversation, Trump said to Hewitt that he had done nothing illegal and was confident the Justice Department would not bring charges against him. He also said that being charged against him “does not exclude” him from running for president in 2024.

Legal authorities told Insider that Trump legally may run for president even if he is accused, found guilty, and imprisoned. The constitution simply stipulates that presidential candidates must be US citizens by birth and at least 35 years old.
