The news of former President Donald Trump’s arrest has been making waves across the country.
In a text sent out to supporters on Thursday evening, he announced that he was being taken into custody at Fulton County Jail in Georgia – a notoriously violent jail.
The charges against him are related to allegations that he attempted to invalidate the state’s 2020 election results.
Trump claims that this is nothing more than punishment for challenging the status quo and giving voice to the silent majority.
His legal team may request to have his case moved from Fulton County Superior Court to local federal court, which could alter the dynamics of the trial and prove advantageous for him in the long run.
Trump took his message one step further when he said “I will stand tall and remain resolute in our mission to save America […] Isn’t it interesting that I went my entire life without ever getting arrested. But suddenly out of nowhere, once I decided to run for president as a political outsider and fight for forgotten citizens of our country, I get ARRESTED FOUR TIMES within the span of just 5 months?”
It’s true; prior to running for president there were no criminal charges filed against him whatsoever.
This begs the question: why now?
Is this an act of retribution by those who oppose his message or another example of Deep State conspiracy theory?
One thing is certain: Trump will not surrender easily despite facing such an immense challenge.
Trump’s 2024 campaign has strongly criticized Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and other prosecutors over his indictment related to them engaging in “election interference” aimed at hurting his campaign for next year’s presidential race.
They accused her of trying to “maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race” while also raising money through prosecuting Donald Trump with these “bogus indictments”.
