Trump says Biden 'orchestrated' legal challenges ahead of campaign stops in battleground states


Former President Trump blasted President Biden on Tuesday ahead of campaign stops in the battleground states of Michigan and Wisconsin, claiming he has "orchestrated" every lawsuit and indictment against him with the help of the Justice Department.

"Please remember, ALL of these Lawsuits, Charges, and Indictments that have been brought against me have been orchestrated and coordinated by Crooked Joe Biden, the White House, and the DOJ, as an ATTACK ON CROOKED’S POLITICAL OPPONENT, ME," Trump posted on his Truth Social account Tuesday morning.

"This has never happened before in our Country. MAGA2024!" he added.

The presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee echoed his past comments, railing against the legal system in the United States, which he says "has been corrupted & politicized at a level never seen before."

Trump said that during his campaign visits in Michigan and Wisconsin on Tuesday he will have "plenty to talk about."

His comments came just hours after he posted $175 million bond out of New York Attorney General Letitia James’ case against him. The judgment was initially set at $454 million, but an appeals court slashed that bond by more than half. The former president is appealing the ruling from New York Judge Arthur Engoron. James is barred from seeking to collect the full judgment through the appeals process.

"I had to pay New York State in order to appeal a corrupt decision by a biased, crooked and highly overturned judge," Trump posted. "It’s supposed to be the other way around – you appeal before you pay."

"Is a crooked New York Judge allowed to make you pay for the ‘privilege’ of appealing a wrongful & corrupt decision???" Trump posted. "NOT IN AMERICA."

Engoron, in February, ruled that Trump inflated his assets. Trump and his family have denied wrongdoing.

Meanwhile, Trump reacted to a separate case in New York – this one, stemming from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s years-long investigation into alleged hush-money payments ahead of the 2016 election.

Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree last year. The trial is set to begin on April 15 in New York. Upon setting the trial date, Judge Juan Merchan granted Bragg’s request for a gag order to be imposed on Trump.

"I just was informed that another corrupt New York Judge, Juan Merchan, GAGGED me so that I can not talk about the corruption and conflicts taking place in his courtroom with respect to a case that everyone, including the D. A., felt should never have been brought," Trump posted. "They can talk about me, but I can’t talk about them??? That sounds fair, doesn’t it?"... (Read more)
