From Conroe, Texas Saturday night, Former President Donald Trump warned of country-wide mass protests if prosecutors continue coming after him.
“This has been going on as long as you’ve known me. It will continue as long as I’m leading in the polls like I am, both against all Republicans and all Democrats, and we’re leading by a lot,” Trump said Saturday at his rally in Texas.
“It really is prosecutorial misconduct at the highest level. These prosecutors are vicious, horrible people. They’re racists, and they’re very sick. They’re mentally sick. They’re going after me, without any protection of my rights by the Supreme Court or most other courts. In reality. They’re not after me, they’re after you, and I just happen to be the person that’s in the way. That’s what they’re after. It’s been going on for years.”
“So think of it: so I’ve got the firm of Chuck Schumer’s radical left brother, all these Never Trumpers working full time in the prosecutor’s office to get Trump, because they couldn’t do it before, because they had nothing after all these years,” Trump said.
This month, the Supreme Court denied his request to block the January 6 committee from obtaining presidential records, which Trump tried to withhold by citing executive privilege.
In 2021, the Supreme Court also rejected a challenge from Trump to keep his tax returns secret.
“For years, they’ve been going after my company, many years, using every trick in the book in an attempt to literally, if they can, put me in jail. They want to put me in jail,” Trump said at the rally on Saturday.
“If these radical, vicious, racist prosecutors do anything wrong or illegal, I hope we are going to have, in this country, the biggest protests we have ever had, in Washington DC; in New York, in Atlanta and elsewhere, because our country and our elections are corrupt. They’re corrupt,” Trump said.
