Thursday, former president donald trump said being mugged in an Atlanta jail was a “terrible experience.”
Trump joked Newsmax host Greg Kelly“I got paid to tell people to watch Newsmax!”
And indeed, the 100-count Fulton County indictment by Fani Willis against Trump says “On or about December 30, 2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused it to be tweeted from the Twitter account @ RealDonaldTrump, “Atlanta hearings on Georgia election overturned” now airing. Check it out. @OANN @newsmax and many more. @BrianKempGA should resign from office. He is a filibuster who he refuses to admit we won Georgia, BIG! He also won the other Swing States.” This was an open act in favor of the conspiracy.”
“I never heard the words ‘mug shot'” trump it continued. “They didn’t teach me that at the Wharton School of Finance.”
He added: “It’s a very sad experience and it’s a very sad day for our country. This is an armed Justice Department.”
The former president was booked, fingerprinted and photographed in the Fulton County Jail Thursday evening after voluntarily surrendering following a grand jury indictment on behalf of the Fulton County District Attorney. Fanny Willis for allegedly trying to nullify the 2020 elections.
He was released on $200,000 bond.
Trump said in the interview about the charges: “It’s like one thing after another. And what they want to do is try to wear you down … an absolutely horrible thing that they’re doing. And I’ve never seen anything like it . This is a Third World country.”
Trump also faces charges from a New York City indictment by Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, as well as two other indictments obtained by special counsel Jack Smith.
This is in addition to Trump’s lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James over allegations of fraud at the Trump Organization, and another lawsuit by E. Jean Carroll for libel.
Trump added that Willis “… is a radical left-wing district attorney, as we’ve done in New York and as we’ve done everywhere else, whether he’s a district attorney or [attorneys general], which we have in New York. They go after [me] all for nothing
“I mean, the case, they don’t have a case against me. They’re doing it to try to get elected,” Trump said of James’ lawsuit. “But they also do it in coordination with the Justice Department in Washington.”
The former president also stated, “This is a trap that will be election interference, and I think what’s happening is that there’s really been a backlash. I’ve seen a tremendous backlash.”
He also told Kelly, “Not just on your show, and you’ve been so amazing, but on so many shows that you wouldn’t even think about, and articles, where even the Democrats are saying, ‘Don’t do it. Don’t do it, please. You’re making a terrible mistake.”
