Trump Stands Firm as Election Interference Claims Persist

Former President Trump remains resolute and unyielding in his stance on two significant legal matters.

The first issue pertains to a federal judge’s warning against making public statements that could potentially influence witnesses or prejudice the jury pool. The second matter revolves around the possibility of accepting a plea deal in a separate case.

The questions were posed to Trump at the Iowa State Fair by a reporter curious about his reaction to Judge Tanya Chutkan’s order.

Judge Chutkan is currently overseeing Special Counsel Jack Smith’s criminal case against Trump. This case alleges the former president attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

When asked about the judge’s order, Trump responded with the following:

“We’ll have to take a look at the order. The whole thing is a fake. It was put out by Biden. And they put it out because they can’t win an election the fair way.”

Trump further emphasized his belief that these allegations are part of a larger scheme of election interference, stating, “Biden put it out because he can’t win the fair way. He’s way down in the polls.”

Following the event, Trump made his way to the airport, en route to his golf club in New Jersey. On the tarmac, another reporter seized the opportunity to ask Trump about the possibility of accepting a plea deal in a separate case in Georgia.

“We did nothing wrong. We don’t ever take a plea deal,” Trump declared. He dismissed the question as a ‘wise guy’ query, reiterating his position. “We don’t take plea deals because I did nothing wrong. It’s called election interference.”

Trump is currently facing numerous felony charges in two federal cases: one from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and another potential indictment from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

All these cases revolve around his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Despite the mounting legal challenges, Trump remains steadfast in his conviction of innocence and continues to assert his belief in election interference.

The former president’s refusal to entertain the idea of a plea deal underscores his unwavering belief in his innocence and his commitment to fight these allegations head-on.
