Donald Trump dismissed the possibility of indictment on Saturday, using his first presidential campaign rally for the 2024 race to take aim at his political opponents.
“Under the auspices and direction of the ‘department of injustice’ in Washington DC, the district attorney of New York was investigating me for something that is not a crime, a misdemeanour, or an affair,” he told supporters in Waco, Texas.
In the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s administration paid pornographic actress Stormy Daniels $130,000, according to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
“I never liked ‘Horse Face,'” Donald Trump added, referring to Stormy Daniels’ disparaging nickname.
“That is not the case. There isn’t nobody. We have a wonderful First Lady.”
Last week, Donald Trump said he would be detained, warning that his indictment may result in “possible bloodshed and damage” from enraged followers.
If the grand jury, a panel of citizens constituted by Alvin Bragg, decides to indict him, he will be the first past or sitting president to be charged with a crime.
