Trump denounces being subjected to a series of political chases
قال الرئيس الأميركي السابق دونالد ترامب إن المدعي المستقل الذي عيّنه وزير العدل الأميركي للإشراف على تحقيقات تطاله شخصياً لن يُحقّق بنزاهة، مضيفاً في كلمة ألقاها بمقر إقامته في مارالاغو بولاية فلوريدا: «هذا الاستغلال الرهيب للسلطة هو الأحدث في سلسلة طويلة من المطاردات السياسية التي بدأت منذ Long time”.
And he continued: “I have been subjected to this investigation, this farce and these tricks since I rode down the escalator to Trump Tower and we cannot allow these horrific violations to continue.”
The US Department of Justice appointed a war crimes prosecutor to conduct an independent investigation into Donald Trump, three days after the former Republican president announced his candidacy in the 2024 presidential election.
In a televised address, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he had “appointed Jack Smith, a prosecutor of the Special Court for Kosovo, based in The Hague, to carry out this very delicate task”.
In an interview with the Fox network, Trump said the appointment of an independent prosecutor to oversee two investigations against him was “unfair” and “politicized”.
Trump denounced “the worst politicization of the judiciary in American history” and stressed that he would not cooperate with investigators.
For his part, Garland believed that naming a special prosecutor was in the public interest of the United States, given that both Trump and his Democratic successor, Joe Biden, have indicated their intention to run in 2024.
Garland added, “Based on recent developments, including former President Trump’s announcement that he will run for the presidency in the upcoming election, and current President Joe Biden’s stated intention to also be a candidate, I have reached this conclusion come to the conclusion that it is in the public interest to appoint a special prosecutor.”
The first investigation relates to Trump’s efforts to change the results of the 2020 presidential election and the second relates to his management of the White House archives and after the special prosecutor has gathered all the elements he will use his professional judgment independently to decide whether that’s the case should be an indictment against Trump in one of those cases, according to Garland.
The special prosecutor is only competent to make recommendations, leaving the decision to the minister.
And the White House announced that US President Joe Biden had received no prior notification of the Justice Department’s appointment of an independent prosecutor to investigate his political rival Trump.
White House spokeswoman Karen Jean-Pierre said: “The President was not aware, we were not aware, and we received no advance notice of Jack Smith’s appointment to conduct two investigations related to the former US President. “
The White House confirmed that the Biden administration would not politicize the judiciary if a prosecutor were appointed to investigate Trump. Jean-Pierre said: “We have not interfered in this matter. We are not involved in criminal investigations. The President was very clear. This government will not politicize the judiciary.”
In addition, the owner of the Twitter network, Elon Musk, has launched a poll to find out user opinions on the reactivation of Trump’s account on Twitter.
Trump had announced his intention not to return to the microblogging site, preferring to continue activities on his private network, Truth Social, which he launched after being banned from Twitter.
Elon Musk is asking Twitter users about reactivation of Trump’s account.
