Speaking in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Donald Trump said the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago for top-secret materials stolen from the White House, saying Republicans were attacking American democracy, and Joe Biden. He lashed out at the first rally since he used his primetime speech to warn him. .
The former president said, “The FBI and Justice Department have become vicious monsters, controlled by far-left thugs, lawyers and the media, telling them what to do.”
Trump nominated Christopher Wray as FBI Director in 2017.
Biden’s speech took place Thursday night outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia. We are still a democracy at heart. But history teaches us that blind loyalty to one leader and active engagement in political violence are fatal to a democracy. “
Trump called Biden’s remarks “the most vicious, hateful and divisive speech ever delivered by a president of the United States.”
The former president made a speech in Wilkesbarre in support of Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz and Gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano.
TV Doctor Oz is at war with Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman. On Saturday night, Trump called Democrats “socialist losers.” He also said that Fetterman, who recently had a stroke and whose health was mocked by the Oz campaign, used illegal drugs.
“Fetterman supports taxpayer-funded drug trafficking and full decriminalization of illegal drugs, including heroin, cocaine, meth, and the super-lethal fentanyl,” Trump said. “By the way, he’s taking them himself.”
“Fetterman may look like a teenager getting high in his parents’ basement, but he’s a die-hard criminal in the midst of the worst crime wave in Pennsylvania history,” Trump said. He’s a lunatic who’s obsessed with getting him out of prison.”
Mastriano is a supporter of Trump’s lie that Biden’s 2020 election victory was the result of election fraud. Candidates compared the attack on the US Capitol on January 6 to the Reichstag fire, the event in Berlin that propelled Adolf Hitler to power in 1933. He has also been photographed wearing the uniform of a Confederate soldier.
In Philadelphia on Thursday, Biden delivered a speech against a dramatic red-hot background. Some said it could not have been done under the circumstances.
At Wilkes-Barre, Trump told the audience that under Biden they were “enemies of the state”. .
Regarding the FBI search in Mar-a-Lago, Trump said: It was the hopes and dreams of every citizen I fought for. “
He called the investigation “one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history” and a “righteous farce,” adding that “they are trying to silence me and, more importantly, The thing is, they’re trying to silence you, but we’re not, aren’t we?”
Investigators recovered thousands of documents, including more than 100 marked confidential. Trump-appointed judges are reviewing Trump’s request to appoint court officials to review documents subject to executive privilege.
Trump won in Pennsylvania in 2016. This was one of his successes in a string of normally Democratic states, which helped propel his victory over Hillary Clinton. But Biden won it in 2020, putting him in the White House four days after Election Day. As the 2022 midterm elections approach, Biden plans to return to the state on Monday, the Labor Day holiday, for an event in Pittsburgh.
Reporters at a Trump rally in Pennsylvania found support for the former president in a search for Mar-a-Lago. He said he was targeting Trump “intentionally” to stop him.
But there are signs that Trump’s endorsement isn’t enough for Oz to win a Senate seat. Larry Mitko voted for Donald Trump in 2016. He told his Associated Press that he does not support Oz.
Mitko didn’t feel like she knew the famous heart surgeon who narrowly won the May primary with Trump’s backing. He said he would vote for Fetterman, whom he has known since childhood.
“Dr. Oz never told me one way to get him to vote,” he said. “Don’t vote for people you don’t know”
