Former President Donald Trump Indicted
June 9, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—The British-directed assault on the institution of the U.S. Presidency took a dangerous turn on June 8 with the federal indictment of former President Donald Trump, who is presently leading in the polls to become the Republican nominee in 2024. Trump said on Truth Social that he has received a summons to appear at a federal court in Miami on June 13. “The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax,” Trump said.
A 37-count criminal indictment was unsealed on June 9, which alleges that Trump willfully retained government records and conspired to prevent their return. The charging document was made public on the day after a grand jury in the U.S. District Court in Miami voted to indict him on June 8. Waltine Nauta, described in the media as “Trump’s body man,” joins Trump in the charging document, which alleges that Nauta carried out Trump’s orders to move boxes of classified documents throughout Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in order to conceal them from Trump’s attorneys, the FBI and the grand jury. Trump is also accused of showing those classified documents to people without the relevant security clearance.
Trump has claimed that he has cooperated with the relevant authorities in the investigation at every step, including prior to the previous over-the-top, brazen raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence last year. Under the U.S. Constitution, the President as commander in chief is given broad powers to classify and declassify information, although legal arguments have been made to suggest there are limits to that power. In his Truth Social account, Trump took aim at the fact that investigations have shown that Biden “has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, DC, with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania.” It should be noted that many of the documents that Biden has were taken when he was a Senator and Vice President, and not the commander in chief.
In his Truth Social account, Trump blasts the indictment as a political operation: “Attorney General Garland, Lisa Monaco, Matt Colangelo (now working at the DA’s Office to ‘GET TRUMP’), Deranged Jack Smith and, of course, Biden himself, who is losing to me in the Polls (by a lot), are all Trump Haters. Jack Smith’s wife, Katy Chevigny, is the biggest Hater of them all.”
While the indictment may leave some demoralized by a political process seemingly controlled by the “deep state,” it is likely to also galvanize support for Trump. But as for “cui bono,” look to the British Empire that relishes such distractions to provide cover for geopolitical operations.
