Trump Seeks Major Change in Federal Election Case

via The Young Turks on Youtube

Former President Donald Trump has criticized the condition of Washington, D.C., and said he will seek a change in venue if the criminal case against him proceeds.

“Washington D.C., our once beautiful capital, has become a dirty, crime-ridden death trap that must be taken over and properly run by the federal government,” Trump pressed. “It is, and will be, part of my election platform. We will clean it, renovate it, rebuilt [sic] it, and most importantly, make it safe.”

The case, prosecuted by special counsel Jack Smith, involves charges related to interference with the 2020 elections.

Trump’s attorneys are seeking to dismiss the case, arguing it is politically motivated and vindictive.

“This was a Biden indictment. Biden, my political opponent, indicted me because I challenged the election, and other ridiculous reasons.”

“Obviously, at the appropriate time, if this ridiculous case should be allowed to proceed forward, which is, according to legal scholars quite doubtful, I will be making a demand for a venue change,” he said. “It’s a very unfair witch hunt, but we are going to win and we are going to make America great again.”

They have filed multiple motions to dismiss the case on various grounds.

Trump claims he cannot receive a fair trial due to bias and alleges that the case is a “witch hunt.”

Left-leaning groups have also filed civil petitions in several states, arguing that Trump should be disqualified from holding office due to his alleged involvement in the January 6th Capitol breach.

The matter is expected to be ultimately settled in the U.S. Supreme Court.
