Trump vows to appoint special prosecutor to investigate Biden if he wins in 2024

Washington, June 13 (EFE).- Former United States President Donald Trump promised on Tuesday that he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the current president, Joe Biden, if he wins the 2024 presidential elections.

“I will appoint a real special prosecutor to go after the most corrupt president in the history of the United States of America, Joe Biden, and the entire Biden crime family,” Trump told supporters at his Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, after he was indicted in a federal court in Miami in an investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified documents.

The former president had already posted a similar message on Truth Social hours before he appeared in court.

In his speech on Tuesday, Trump repeated a series of insults against the US Department of Justice and against special prosecutor Jack Smith, who is leading the investigation into the classified documents case and whom he described as a “deranged lunatic” and a “thug.”

The former president accused Smith of doing “political hit jobs” and said that the Justice Department’s decision to prosecute him was politically motivated.

He also defended his authority to declassify sensitive material, and said that other leaders, including former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, were also involved in similar controversies without being charged with any crime.

Trump was arraigned on Tuesday on 37 charges in the case against him for retaining classified documents at his home in Florida, charges to which he pleaded “not guilty.

During his speech in New Jersey, Trump responded to chants of “Happy Birthday” – he turns 77 on Wednesday – saying the celebration will be “the best ever.”

Trump is the the first president or ex-president in US history to face federal charges.

He faces 37 charges for mishandling classified documents at Mar-a-Lago – his Palm Beach, Florida, mansion, club and resort – after he left the White House in early 2021. EFE
