A New York grand jury has convened to evaluate the evidence from a two-year investigation of former President Donald Trump to decide whether to indict him according to a report by the Blaze.
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance expects to bring Trump before a grand jury for trial.
Trump responded in a statement on his website that, “I have just learned, through leaks in the mainstream media, that after being under investigation from the time I came down the escalator 5 ½ years ago, including the fake Russia Russia Russia Hoax, the 2 year, $48M, No Collusion Mueller Witch Hunt, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and others, that the Democrat New York Attorney General has ‘informed’ my organization that their ‘investigation’ is no longer just a civil matter but also potentially a ‘criminal’ investigation working with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.”
He added, “There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime. But, make no mistake, that is exactly what is happening here.”
After attacking the attorney general’s accusations, Trump said, “The Attorney General made each of these statements, not after having had an opportunity to actually look at the facts, but BEFORE she was even elected, BEFORE she had seen even a shred of evidence.
“This is something that happens in failed third world countries, not the United States. If you can run for a prosecutor’s office pledging to take out your enemies, and be elected to that job by partisan voters who wish to enact political retribution, then we are no longer a free constitutional democracy.”
The former president has been under investigation for years, with many Americans simply weary of the drawn out process. Trump has also returned with his own attacks, showing he does not plan to back down from the allegations.
While some on the left continue to seek ways to punish Trump even after he is out of office, many just want to see the investigation end.
