Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the children of former US President Donald Trump, broke their silence on Friday after the former leader was charged with violating federal law by allegedly paying hush money to a porn star in 2016. Trump will be booked, have his fingerprints taken, and have a photograph taken on Tuesday before making history by becoming the first American president to be charged with a crime.
Ivanka Trump stated, “I love my father and I love my nation,” in a brief message shared on social media. “I am hurt for both today. I value the voices from all political perspectives expressing support and concern,” she said in her letter.
The indictment, according to Kushner, shows that President Trump’s opponents are “frightened.” During a Future Investment Initiative Institute meeting in Florida, Kushner stated, “As an American, it’s really upsetting to me to see the leader of the opposition party be prosecuted, and I think that reflects plainly the fear that the Democrats have of Trump and the political strength that he has.”
Kushner remarked in the opening remarks of a discussion on the Abraham Accords, “It’s been frustrating to watch the opponents of him politically continue to break every rule over the last years to try to get him.” Kushner connected the indictment to claims that Trump colluded with the Russian government, his impeachments, and police raids intended to find secret documents on his home.
Kushner added, “I’ve stood by him in many of these situations and it’s just strengthened him. His resolve to take on significant issues, to fight for change, to fight for the American people has only grown stronger.
Following the historic indictment, the former president and his legal team went on the attack on Friday, announcing that Trump would never negotiate a plea bargain and was prepared “to fight” all allegations.
The 76-year-old Trump, who plans to run for president again in 2024, assailed the attorneys who filed the accusations against him as well as the judge who would be hearing the case.
The judge who would preside over a potential trial, Juan Manuel Marchal, “hates me,” Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social. One of Trump’s attorneys, Joe Tacopina, asserted, “The president will not be handcuffed,” and he added that he did not think the prosecution would “let this to become a circus.”
Tacopina stated that the former president would enter a not guilty plea in the hush-money lawsuit being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg against Trump.
Trump told NBC’s Today program that there is “zero” chance he would accept a plea bargain. “It won’t take place. There isn’t any crime.
The indictment first “shocked” Trump, who is presently at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, according to his counsel, but “he’s now in the stance that he’s ready to fight this.”
Joe Biden avoided queries from reporters about the indictment of the Republican he defeated in 2020 and may perhaps face again in November of the following year. Trump’s impending arrest tosses a political grenade into the fight for the White House in 2019. Biden stated, “I have no comment on Trump.
A New York grand jury accused Donald Trump on Thursday for paying a porn star $130,000 in hush money to purchase her silence during his 2016 campaign.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and charged Democrat Bragg of engaging in a “political witch hunt” to thwart his relaunched presidential campaign. Trump urged protests and warned they may result in “possible murder and destruction” for the nation when he predicted his indictment. The former president further claimed in a statement that in the 24 hours following the news of the indictment, he had already raised $4 million for his 2024 presidential campaign.
Although the New York Police Department declared on Friday that there were “no current credible threats” to the city, extra security has been in place for days near the courthouse in downtown Manhattan where Trump is scheduled to be booked and arraigned.
While in office, Trump avoided prosecution over everything from the US Capitol riot to the disappearance of confidential documents. Yet, he was eventually charged in a sex scandal involving 44-year-old adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
He is under felony investigation in Georgia in connection with the 2020 election, as well as in Washington in connection with the confidential documents and his followers’ attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The former president, who continues to be the front-runner to receive the party’s presidential nominee in 2024, has received support from top Republicans.
The senior House Republican, Kevin McCarthy, claimed that the indictment had “irreparably destroyed” the nation. Mike Pence, a potential rival to Trump in 2024, termed it a “outrage” that will only “further serve to divide” the country. Another probable Republican challenger in 2024, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, denounced the indictment as “un-American.”
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of the Democratic Party declared that “no one is above the law,” while Representative Adam Schiff, the chief prosecutor in Trump’s first impeachment, described it as “sobering.”
In 2019, Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen testified before Congress that he paid Daniels on Trump’s behalf to conceal a tryst in 2006 and was later reimbursed. The grand jury that indicted Trump was requested to look at the possibility of a cover-up meant to harmonize the controversy with his campaign.
