Former President Donald Trump spoke out Friday night during a speech, after Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland announced earlier in the day that he was appointing a special counsel to investigate Trump.
Garland announced during a press briefing on Friday that he has appointed former Justice Department official Jack Smith to oversee the investigation into Trump’s taking classified documents to Mar-a-Lago, including whether Trump obstructed the corrupt FBI’s investigation into the documents.
Garland said Smith will also oversee an investigation into the January 6 riot at the Capitol, with regards to whether Trump or other officials “interfered with the peaceful transfer of power.”
In a statement on his Truth Social account Friday afternoon, Trump wrote, “Here we go again! I thought that the Unselect Committee on January 6th was a dead issue, especially with the record setting loss off Liz Chaney in the Great State of Wyoming, and likewise felt that the document hoax case, after reviewing the Clinton Socks Case & the Presidential Record Act, was dead, or at least dying fast. The Democrat Department of “Justice” had nothing, except Trump haters, so they just appointed a Special Prosecutor to go after me further. Disgraceful!”
Trump further slammed Garland’s announcement while giving the keynote speech at the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) conference being held at Mar-a-Lago Friday night.
“This horrendous abuse of power is the latest in a long series of witch hunts,” Trump declared.
“This is a rigged deal just like the 2020 election was rigged,” Trump said, adding, “I’ve been going through these investigations and hoaxes and scams from the day I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, and enough is enough,” he said.
Trump demanded to know where is the special counsel against the Bidens for their foreign business dealings?

Cheers to President Trump, for defiantly standing up to Attorney General Merrick Garland and his politicized and weaponized Biden Justice Department.
They fear President Trump will beat Illegitimate President Biden, their boss, at the polls.
