Ex-president Donald Trump targeted ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Judge Tanya Chutkan, and Joe Biden in an extensive social media post on December 8.
He decried the accumulating investigations and lawsuits, invoking his predecessor Barack Obama. Trump labeled the legal actions as “Biden ‘Political Opponent’ Lawsuits,” insinuating they are partisan assaults by President Joe Biden.
He questioned the delayed lawsuits, saying they “could have been brought 3 years ago.” The ex-president highlighted the case linked to the January 6th Capitol attack, set for trial in March 2024.
Trump criticized U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, an Obama appointee, for audaciously scheduling the trial the day before Super Tuesday, a significant day in the nomination process.
He suggested the timing was a political hit job to distract from the election cycle. The real estate mogul turned politician took a shot at the House select committee, claiming, without evidence, that “most of the Unselect Committee’s evidence was deleted and destroyed.”
Trump alleged the deleted evidence “would have shown the GUILT of Crazy Nancy Pelosi,” accusing her of illegal activity. It’s unclear what evidence Trump referred to regarding Pelosi.
Tying various investigations and accusations, Trump warned the “Biden Witch Hunt” could turn America into a “BANANA REPUBLIC.” This social media rant is his latest dismissal of investigations as politically motivated, while accusing Democrats.
Trump denies wrongdoing in the January 6th incident, falsely claiming he won the 2020 election. Nearly a thousand rioters face charges for storming the Capitol. While Trump avoided naming Obama, his “Obama-appointed” judge mention reflects ongoing efforts to blame them for his legal scrutiny.
Firing shots at Pelosi and referencing Obama in the “Biden Witch Hunt” reveals deep partisan divisions two years post-Trump’s term.
