Former President Donald Trump predicted today that the Department of Justice will charge Hunter Biden with ‘something small’ to make the charges against Trump ‘look fair.’ Trump said:
“It’s all about ELECTION INTERFERENCE. They don’t want to run against me. I ran twice, I did much better the second time, getting millions and millions more votes than the first, a record for a sitting President, and am leading Biden in the polls, by a lot.
“They are the Party of Disinformation! They are using the DOJ & FBI against me to Rigg the 2024 Election. They’ll hit Hunter with something small to make their strike on me look “fair.”
“Nothing about these Fascists is fair or honest.
“They are also going after me as RETRIBUTION for the Republicans in Congress going after them.
“The difference is, they have created major crimes, I have created none!
“The Marxists and Fascists in the DOJ & FBI are going after me at a level and speed never seen before in our Country, and I did nothing wrong.
“Joe Biden kept (keeps) thousand of documents, in many locations, some illegally taken from skiffs while he was a Senator, a big portion of which were classified.
“He didn’t want to give them back, and still doesn’t.
“Nothing happens to him, with same reasonable prosecutor who correctly exonerated Mike Pence.
“I have a much different prosecutor, a Trump hater!”
According to The Washington Post:
Attorneys for Donald Trump went to the Justice Department on Monday morning to make their case that the government should not charge the former president in connection with his possession of classified documents after leaving office, according to people familiar with the matter.
Trump lawyers Lindsey Halligan, John Rowley and James Trusty spent about two hours at the Justice Department and left without speaking to reporters.
They met with Justice Department personnel including special counsel Jack Smith and a senior career official, but not Attorney General Merrick Garland or Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, said people familiar with the matter, who like others interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a closed-door proceeding.
The Justice Department declined to comment.
Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers were seen by CBS News entering the DOJ to meet with top officials.
