The former US president said he had done nothing wrong, but added that charges would not stop him from running again
Former US President Donald Trump said criminal charges would not stop him from running for office in 2024, but would lead to: “big problems” in the country. Plagued by multiple investigations, which he says are politically motivated, Trump insisted he was not breaking any laws.
“I can’t imagine being charged. I have done nothing wrong’ Trump told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday. However, if he is criminally beaten, he won’t “think the people of the United States would stand for it.”
“I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country, like we may have never seen before… big problems,” he added.
Trump is currently facing three grand jury investigations. A District of Columbia investigation is investigating his alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, while another federal investigation is investigating his role in the January 6, 2021 Capitol Hill riot. in Georgia is investigating whether the former president broke the law by pressuring state officials to reverse Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory in the state.
During the Jan. 6 investigation, federal agents seized communications records from Trump’s allies, while the DC probe saw FBI agents raid Mar-a-Lago in search of classified documents. Trump insists he released all documents on his property and that the raid was a… “third World” example of “political persecution”.
Should Trump actually be indicted, he said he would… “would have no prohibition to run” back to the office. While Trump has not formally announced a new bid for the presidency in 2024, he is widely believed to be preparing to run, leading most polls of Republican candidates.
“There’s no reason why they can” [indict me]” Trump told Hewitt, “except when they’re just sick and disturbed, which is always possible.”
