Trump warns if he is criminally charged in Stormy Daniels case there will be “death and destruction”
Former U.S. President, Donald Trumpwarned Friday that “potential death and destruction” looms if he is indicted for allegedly paying porn actress Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence, a matter currently before a grand jury in Manhattan.
In a post written on your Truth Social networkwhich is for the moment the only one he is actively using, Trump insists that his impeachment “would be catastrophic for our country.”
According to the 76-year-old politician and businessman, who is supposed to be at his Mar-a-Lago Florida mansion, his impeachment can be sought by “only a psychopathic degenerate who truly hates America,” alluding to prosecutor Alvin Bragg, who initiated the case and asked the grand jury to consider whether to go forward with the case, something that will not be known until at least next week.
In his post, Trump insists on several ideas repeated again and again since he left the presidency: That he had more votes than any president in all of history. (although he was outpolled by Joe Biden, whom he denies electoral legitimacy) and that “it is a known fact that no crime was committed (by him).”
Trump’s animosity towards prosecutor Bragg already has personal overtones: this Thursday he called him “an animal backed by Georges Soros who doesn’t care what is right or wrong, and doesn’t care how many people he can hurt.”
Bragg, who in days gone by has been besieged by the press which has been stationed since Monday next to the courthouse where the grand jury is to announce its decision, has declined to make any statement regarding the case.
However, last week his office issued a statement saying that. Will continue to “apply the law with equity and fairness.”, and that he would speak out only “when appropriate.” “We will not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or to threaten the rule of law in New York.”
