Trump harshly criticized 4 district attorneys who were investigating him on his social media site, Truth Social.
Defending Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg as “dangerous for the country”, Trump said Bragg and Jack Smith, Letitia James and Fani Willis should be fired immediately.
In his post, Trump used the term “radical mad bomber” for Smith, the former attorney general appointed as a special expert in the “confidential documents” and “January 6 Congressional raid” investigations conducted against him, while New York Attorney General Letitia James, who investigates tax irregularities in Trump companies, said that “the country’s raid claimed to be “the worst attorney general”.
Accusing Atlanta District Attorney Fani Willis, who is investigating illegal interference in the 2020 Presidential election, of “trying to make the perfect phone calls to destroy the United States”, Trump said that Willis is “someone who dominates the most violent crime scene in America and does nothing about it”. used the phrase.
On March 18, Trump, again on his social media account, said, “I could be arrested on Tuesday,” for the investigation conducted by Manhattan District Attorney Bragg, and called for support to his supporters.
At Trump’s call, the New York Police increased security measures in front of the district attorney’s office and court and around Trump’s buildings.
The grand jury, which examined the evidence in the investigation, is expected to decide on March 27 whether they find Trump guilty.
hush share payment
Stormy Daniels argued that she signed an agreement in 2016 for a payment of 130,000 dollars to remain silent about her alleged sexual intercourse with Trump, but that the agreement was invalid because it was not signed by Trump.
While Trump denied Daniels’ allegations, Michael Cohen, who was Trump’s lawyer before the 2016 election campaign, confirmed that he paid Daniels $130,000 from his own account on Trump’s behalf.
Cohen claimed that he was later reimbursed about $420,000, with bonuses, by the Trump companies.
Detained in December 2018 on charges of “lying” and “tax evasion” in the investigation into Trump’s election campaign, Cohen was sentenced to 3 years in court and sent to federal prison in Otisville in May 2019 to serve his sentence.
In those years, federal prosecutors did not need to initiate any investigation against Trump, while the Manhattan district attorney’s office launched what is known as the “silence payment.”
