Trump calls FBI, DoJ ‘vicious monsters’ in first rally since Mar-a-Lago search | Donald Trump

Date:

Speaking in Pennsylvania on Saturday, at his first meeting since the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago for top-secret White House material and since Joe Biden used a primetime speech to warn that Republicans were attacking American democracy, Donald quoted Trump out.

The former president said: “The FBI and the Justice Department have become vicious monsters, controlled by radical left-wing thugs, lawyers and the media, telling them what to do.”

Trump nominated FBI Director Christopher Wray in 2017.

Biden’s address was delivered outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Thursday night. Presenting a “battle for the soul of the nation”, he said: “This is a nation that rejects violence as a political tool. Essentially we are still a democracy. But history teaches us that blind loyalty to a single leader and the willingness to commit political violence is fatal in a democracy.”

Trump called Biden’s comments “the most cruel, hateful and divisive speech ever by a US president”.

The former president spoke in Wilkes-Barre in support of Mehmet Oz, the Republican nominee for the US Senate, and Doug Mastriano, the nominee for governor.

Oz, a TV doctor, struggles with the lieutenant governor, John Fetterman. On Saturday night, Trump called the Democrat “a socialist loser.” He also said Fetterman, who recently suffered a stroke and whose health has been mocked by the Oz campaign, has been taking illegal drugs.

“Fetterman supports taxpayer-funded drug depots and the full decriminalization of illegal drugs, including heroin, cocaine, crystal meth and ultra-lethal fentanyl,” Trump said. “By the way, he takes them himself.”

Trump also said: “Fetterman may dress like a teen getting high in his parents’ basement, but he’s a raging madman determined to get hardened criminals out of prison in the midst of the worst crime wave in Pennsylvania history.” .”

Mastriano is a supporter of Trump’s lie that Biden’s 2020 election victory was the result of electoral fraud. The candidate has likened the January 6 attack on the US Capitol to the Reichstag fire, the event in Berlin in 1933 that brought Adolf Hitler to power. He is also photographed in the uniform of a Confederate soldier.

In Philadelphia, Biden spoke to a dramatic, scarlet backdrop on Thursday. Republicans protested, some saying the speech was too political to be delivered amid the trappings of the presidency, including the accompanying US Marines.

In Wilkes-Barre, Trump told his audience that they were “enemies of the state” under Biden. About Biden, he said, “He’s an enemy of the state, you want to know the truth.”

Speaking of the FBI search in Mar-a-Lago, Trump said, “It wasn’t just my house that was robbed last month. They have been the hopes and dreams of every citizen I have fought for.”

Calling the search “one of the most shocking abuses of power by a government in American history” and “a mockery of justice,” he said: “They’re trying to silence me and, most importantly, they’re trying to silence you.” But we won’t be silenced, will we?”

Researchers have recovered thousands of documents, including more than 100 with secret and secret markings. A Trump-appointed judge is considering Trump’s request to appoint a court official to review the documents against administrative law documents.

Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016, a success in a string of mostly Democratic states fueling his victory over Hillary Clinton. But Biden won in 2020, his appeal four days after election day put him in the White House. As the 2022 interim deadlines approach, Biden is back in state on Monday, the Labor Day holiday, for an event in Pittsburgh.

Reporters in Pennsylvania ahead of Trump’s rally found support for the former president during the search for Mar-a-Lago. Roy Bunger, 65, told the New York Times that the Biden administration “deliberately” targeted Trump “to prevent him from running again.”

But there are signs that Trump’s approval won’t be enough to help Oz win the Senate seat that Republicans have been targeting in their bid to take back the chamber. Larry Mitko voted for Donald Trump in 2016. He told the Associated Press that he would not support Oz: “No way, anyway.”

Mitko said he didn’t feel like he knew the famed cardiac surgeon, who narrowly won his primary in May with Trump’s support. Mitko said he would vote for Fetterman, who he has known since Fetterman was mayor of nearby Braddock.

“Dr Oz didn’t show me one thing to get me to vote for him,” he said. “I won’t vote for anyone I don’t know.”
