Former President Donald Trump, in a fiery interview with FOX Business’s Larry Kudlow, unleashed his frustration and labeled the recent indictment against him in Fulton County, Georgia, as a form of suppression. Trump warned Republicans that they cannot afford to let people “get away with it”. The former president did not hold back in his criticism, stating that those behind the indictment have “no idea how the world works” and are oblivious to the anger they are causing.
Trump emphasized that both Republicans and Democrats see the “disgusting situation” in Georgia and the tremendous group of people who recognize it. He humorously mentioned the four ongoing criminal cases against him and noted how discrediting they are. The former president maintained that there is no basis for any of the charges made against him, suggesting that they are merely political attacks.
John Ratcliffe says Regime media is complicit in the Trump witch hunt:
"They're all co-conspirators in this. They’re all complicit in this and there is so much at stake, and if it unravels, it’s not just political folks that will take a fall on this." pic.twitter.com/kZsbgfvdpR

Undeterred by the mounting legal battles, Trump made his position clear: he denies any wrongdoing and dismisses all charges as witch hunts. He believes that they are part of a larger effort to disrupt his lead in the GOP presidential primary race. Trump even hinted at using the Presidential Records Act as a defense in his federal case regarding his handling of classified documents.
Trump expressed concern over the suppression of voices, particularly when it comes to discussing elections, warning that those who speak out face the possibility of being jailed. He blasted this as detrimental to the country and called on Republicans to be tough and fight harder, stating that their party’s future hinges on it.
In Georgia, Trump faces charges of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and conspiring to use fake electors to overturn the 2020 election results. While these claims have been debunked, Trump remains undeterred and plans to release a report exonerating him. He concluded by sounding the alarm to his party, urging them not to let those behind the indictments “get away with it” and emphasizing the need for a stronger Republican Party.
