Trump scolds the rule of law at a campaign event in Texas
Dhe former US President donald trump has again stormed against the judiciary and political opponents in view of the threat of indictment. “The new weapon used by runaway Democrats to cheat in elections is the criminal investigation of a candidate,” Trump said at his first major campaign event in Texas on Saturday night. Friends thought he was probably the “most innocent man” in US history. The Republican is running for his party’s presidential candidacy and wants to move back into the White House after the 2024 election.
The public prosecutor’s office in New York is investigating the ex-president who was voted out of office because of hush money payments to the porn actress Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal. An indictment in the case seems increasingly likely and is expected in the near future. Investigators are concerned with whether Trump may have violated campaign finance laws by making the payments. It would be the first indictment by prosecutors against a former US president. The 76-year-old has various other legal construction sites and presents all allegations as politically motivated.
The Tale of the “Witch Hunt”
Trump claimed every part of his life is being screened like no other in US history. In the audience, spectators held signs with the word “witch hunt” in their hands – Trump’s usual slogan. The song “Justice for all” was played at the beginning of his speech, which lasted about an hour and a half. It is sung by a male choir whose members were convicted of their involvement in the January 6, 2021 Capitol attack. Proceeds from the song will be used to provide legal support to those accused of the violent riots. In the song, Trump recites the oath of allegiance to the USAwhile the choir sings the national anthem.
Before Trump’s speech, the venue in particular caused a stir. Trump spoke at the airport in the city of Waco, which was the scene of a bloody tragedy 30 years ago and has since been used by right-wing groups in particular as a symbol of alleged state transgressions. At that time, police officers had besieged a sect property for weeks and finally stormed it, which in the end went up in flames.
More than 80 cult members died, and four police officers were killed. According to media reports, Trump’s team denied that the venue had anything to do with the Waco massacre.
