Trump denies wrongdoing amid multiple investigations, calls probes politically motivated



Baseless claims of prosecutorial misconduct

Former President Donald Trump baselessly railed against what he called “prosecutorial misconduct” at a campaign rally Saturday night in Texas, denying any wrongdoing amid investigations in New York, Georgia and Washington.

Accusations without evidence

Without evidence, Trump repeatedly described the probes as politically motivated efforts to hamper his 2024 presidential bid during his rally in Waco.

Trump calls investigations “bullsh*t”

Trump called the investigations “bullsh*t,” and said local prosecutors in Manhattan and Fulton County are the “henchmen” of national Democrats.

Maga-rally reminiscent of 2016 and 2020 campaigns

The rally at the Waco Regional Airport was a return to the mega-rallies reminiscent of Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, as the Republican field for the 2024 presidential race begins to take shape.

A summary of the investigations

The former president’s return to his favorite event staging came as he is faced with investigations in New York City over a hush money payment, in Georgia over his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and by Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith over classified documents the FBI found at Mar-A-Lago, his attempts to steal the 2020 presidential election and his role in the January 6, 2021, insurrection.

Investigation and looming arrest

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into Trump’s role in an alleged hush money payment scheme to adult film star Stormy Daniels is believed to be nearing its final stages. Trump, on his social media network Truth Social, has predicted his own arrest, and warned that it would lead to “potential death & destruction” and “could be catastrophic for our Country.”

Michael Cohen’s confession

Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen has admitted to paying $130,000 to Daniels just before the 2016 election to stop her from going public about an alleged affair with the former president.

Trump’s rally attacks others in the Republican Party

At the rally, Trump also attacked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis – who appears to be inching toward his own presidential bid, with early polls suggesting he could be a formidable contender.

Waco location

The Waco rally comes 30 years after the federal and state law enforcement raid on the Branch Davidian doomsday cult’s compound in Waco – a 51-day siege that resulted in the deaths of 86 people and has since come to be viewed on the far right as a symbol of government overreach.
