Trump Demands ‘Immediate Removal’ Of Every Law Enforcement Official Investigating Him
Donald Trump is having a busy day ranting online about his potential indictment and demanding that law enforcement officials leading four different investigations into his conduct be removed from their posts as they continue to make significant advances in each probe.
“District Attorney Bragg is a danger to our Country, and should be removed immediately, along with Radical Lunatic Bombthrower Jack Smith, who is harassing and intimidating innocent people at levels not seen before, ‘Get Trump’ Letitia James, the worst Attorney General in the United States, and Atlanta D.A. Fani Willis, who is trying to make PERFECT phone calls into a plot to destroy America, but reigns over the most violent Crime Scene in America, and does nothing about it!” Trump wrote in a post on his social media site.
As reported by The Hill, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is set to meet Monday with a grand jury assembled to hear evidence in a case reviewing whether Trump broke the law in organizing and concealing a $130,000 hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The former president has been anxious and predicted over the weekend that he would be arrested Tuesday in connection with the Manhattan DA’s probe into his hush payment to and called on his supporters to “protest and take our county back.”
Meanwhile, special counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing an investigation into the mishandling of records at Mar-a-Lago, as well as the effort to stop the transition of power after the 2020 election, also just scored a major court victory. An appeals court backed a lower court ruling ordering Trump’s attorney in the Mar-a-Lago probe, Evan Corcoran, to turn over documents and transcripts of calls to prosecutors.
New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) has brought a civil fraud suit against Trump. Efforts by Trump’s team to delay the case for six months do not appear likely to succeed. Court documents filed earlier this month indicate that Judge Arthur Engoron, who is overseeing the case, told the parties during a recent proceeding that the trial would start as scheduled on Oct. 2 “come hell or high water.”
In Georgia, Trump’s legal team on Monday sought to quash an investigation led by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) into his efforts to influence the 2020 election.
It’s not clear if Trump will be charged in connection with the probe, but the move comes after jurors who served on the grand jury there said this month its final report suggested charges for numerous people connected with Trump’s scheme.
Willis also said in January that charging decisions for multiple defendants are “imminent.”
