Democrats have absolutely destroyed America’s justice system.
In a recent fundraising email sent to his supporters, Former President Trump expressed concern over the possibility of facing a lengthy prison sentence due to the Justice Department’s indictment related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election. He accused the DOJ of being corrupt and engaging in witch hunts against him.
In transcript provided by The Hill, Trump wrote, “With Crooked Joe’s corrupt DOJ having unlawfully INDICTED yours truly yet again, reports indicate that I could now face a combined 561 YEARS in prison from the Left’s witch hunts.”
The former President of the United States is facing an astounding 561 YEARS!
The indictment against Trump is a result of special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the events of January 6, 2021, and other efforts made to retain power after losing to President Biden. Furthermore, Trump is facing a 40-count federal indictment for mishandling classified materials at Mar-a-Lago after his presidency, including charges under the Espionage Act. Additionally, there is a 34-count indictment from the Manhattan district attorney concerning a payment made to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election, and he could potentially face charges related to election interference in Fulton County, Georgia.
Critics have accused the former president of using his campaign funds to avoid jail time and support his legal defense. Campaign money has been used for legal fees, with a significant portion of the $53 million raised in the first half of 2023 going towards this purpose.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a 2024 GOP primary rival, criticized Trump’s use of campaign funds for legal fees, highlighting that a substantial amount of money contributed by middle-class Americans was allocated to Trump’s personal legal matters.
