Trump asks Supreme Court to intervene in lawsuits against him, citing 'election interference'
"It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!" Trump wrote on TRUTH Social.
Former President Donald Trump on Friday called on the Supreme Court to intervene in the numerous lawsuits against him, citing it as election interference.
"CRAZY! My political opponent has hit me with a barrage of weak lawsuits, including D.A., A.G., and others, which require massive amounts of my time & money to adjudicate," Trump posted on TRUTH Social.
"Resources that would have gone into Ads and Rallies, will now have to be spent fighting these Radical Left Thugs in numerous courts throughout the Country," the post continued. "I am leading in all Polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!"
Trump was indicted Tuesday as part of a special counsel Jack Smith's federal grand jury probe into the former president's efforts to challenge the 2020 election results and the former president's role in the subsequent Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
Trump was charged with four counts, including conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of, and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.
Trump has also been charged in Smith's probe of his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House. He pleaded not guilty to 37 of those federal charges.
In addition, a Manhattan grand jury in March voted to indict Trump on criminal charges in connection to violating a New York law on corporate record-keeping related to a payoff to Stormy Daniels, a porn star who claimed she had a sexual encounter with him.
