During his rally last night in Texas, Donald Trump mostly regurgitated all the things he’s been saying for years. But Trump has also had a very bad last couple of weeks legally. Investigations into his actions are moving along swiftly in both New York and Georgia. An obviously nervous Trump railed against the probes yesterday, saying that prosecutors are attacking him because they’re racists.
The former President ranted:
“But that’s what they really want. It really is prosecutorial misconduct at the highest level. It really is. 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’m just the person in the way.”
As you can see from his words, Trump always planned on using the Supreme Court he packed to defend him from prosecution. They cannot help him here, though, because the Georgia and New York investigations are being run at a state level.
As for his allegations of racism, Trump seems to be pointing out that the Georgia DA involved in his case, Fani Willis, and the New York Attorney General, Letitia James, are African American.
