On Sunday, Mr. Trump told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that the Trump team faces multiple investigations and must respond to subpoenas “every day.”
“The problem with Democrats is that they dig so deep that they always end up,” Mr. Trump said. “And the reason I’m frustrated about it is every day since my dad ran for president, my dad and all of our family and our business has been investigated. Every day, Maria, we receive assignment after assignment after assignment.
“They have armed the whole system in this country,” he added. “They armed the DOJ. They have armed our army. They have armed the educational system of this country. They have armed the medical system in this country. Democrats are militarizing absolutely anything they can use against their political opponents, ”Mr. Trump said.
Mr. Trump was quickly ridiculed on Twitter for his complaints about the criminal justice system going after Trumps.
“If Eric Trump is upset because he and his family are given subpoena after subpoena, wait until they are in jail and transferred from inmate to inmate,” Lee Mays tweeted.
“Eric Trump was on Fox whining that ‘every day my family gets subpoena after subpoena after subpoena. In addition, the pencil to appear that his children give him on Father’s Day ”, writer Paul Rudnick tweeted.
Former President Trump is the subject of multiple criminal investigations into his business transactions, property taxes and the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
Mr Trump said of the investigations: “There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is desperate for a crime. “
He is also the subject of several civil lawsuits. He is accused of violating the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act, a law that prohibits the use of intimidation tactics against public officials. There are also multiple allegations of fraud against the former president.
Rebecca Roiphe, professor at New York Law School and former Manhattan DA assistant, said Rolling stone magazine: “This is a major concern for him because he is no longer in office. “
“If he committed a crime like everyone else, I don’t understand exactly how he escaped it,” she added.
A federal conviction would not prevent Mr. Trump from running for the White House in 2024.
Lawyers in the tax evasion case against the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg returned to court on Monday.
The New York State Supreme Court appearance follows a number of criminal charges that were exposed by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr nearly three months ago.
It is alleged that Mr. Weisselberg, who has worked for the Trump family since 1973, and the Trump Organization, have committed tax evasion for the past 15 years by partially compensating company executives using untaxed benefits such as ‘rent-free apartment, car and school fees at a private school for Mr. Weisselberg’s grandchildren.
Both Mr. Weisselberg and the Trump Organization have pleaded not guilty, and Mr. Trump said the investigation was politically motivated.
