Former President Provisions have been charged by the Justice Department
US President Donald Trump has confessed to allegations of annulled the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The former US president has been charged by the Federal Department of Justice for attempts to change the results of the 2020 presidential election and crime in Capital Hill.
After leaving the court, Trump said on Virginiaport, “This is a persecution of a political opponent, it should never happen in the United States”.
Trump filed a petition on Thursday afternoon during a hearing at the Barrett Prattimian United States Court House in Washington DC. The court adjourned the next hearing of the case till August 28.
Two days ago, US prosecutors filed four federal charges against Trump, accusing a Republican politician of trying to change the results of the 2020 elections, in which he lost his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Were
This is the third criminal offense filed against the former president since March. Trump also faces allegedly paying secret money and other allegations to an adult film star in New York, which is related to the allegations that he handled secret official documents in his Florida State.
Trump, who is at the forefront of the Republican Nomination Nomination in the 2024 presidential election, has denied all the allegations, calling him an attempt to remove his election campaign.
However, the latest person can be the biggest obstacle to Trump’s way. Experts say the case of interference in the 2020 elections is the most important of the three criminal charges, one calling it “the most important legal case of the country’s history”.
The person has been accused of “using illegal ways to ignore legitimate votes and break the election results in an attempt to stop Biden’s 2020 victory.”
Prosecutors highlighted Trump’s involvement in incidents before the US capital attack on January 6, 2021, when a mob of his supporters occupied the building to prevent the Congress from confirming the Biden election victory.
Legal analyst and former prosecutor Debbie Hines in the city of Balti Moore, Maryland, told Al Jazeera on Thursday that the case would “be a test for US legal system as well as American democracy”.
He emphasized that every defendant in the United States faces the same legal process that Trump will pass through. The accused is considered innocent in court unless he is punished for any crime, and he has the right to prosecute the jury.
“But this case shows that the rule of law is established in this country and no one is above the law, not even the former president of the United States,” Haines said.
However, Trump had argued that a fair trial in the Democrats -controlled city of Washington DC would be “impossible” for him.
In a post on social media before the court appearance, the former president said he hoped that a ‘fake case’ against him would be transferred to a neutral place like Western Virginia. He wrote on his Truth social website that “this person is about the crime of electoral interference”.
Trump’s lawyer Alina Haba also renewed the allegations on Thursday that the former president was being targeted to thwart the 2024 election campaign. “This is currently an election intervention against the biggest candidate for any party president,” Haba told the media.
Although Trump’s legal difficulties have increased over the past few months, according to recent votes, his position in Republican supporters is still strong.
According to a New York Times and Sinai College survey, Trump has 54 % support for GOP primary voters, while his close rival Florida Governor Ron de Saints has 17 % support.
Experts say the partial reason is that a large part of US voters see criminal charges against Trump as an attempt to disrupt the re -election campaign in 2024.
