Trump calls for congressional investigation after prosecution turns over evidence

 June 23, 2023

According to The Independent, federal prosecutors began turning evidence over to former President Donald Trump's defense attorneys on Wednesday as part of the discovery process.

Trump responded by demanding an investigation, something Rolling Stone described with a headline that read, "Trump Melts Down as DOJ Turns Over Evidence It Plans to Use Against Him."

Evidence said to include recorded interviews

The magazine stated that among the evidence were recordings of interviews that Trump is said to have given along with grand-jury witness testimony and material obtained via subpoenas.

It also noted that the former president put up a post on Truth Social in which he asked for members of Congress to "please investigate the political witch hunts against me."

He also took aim at the "corrupt" Department of Justice and FBI, both of which he characterized as being "totally out of control.

Poll: 62% think charges are politically motivated

In another post he slammed the 37 criminal charges brought against him as being political "retribution" and predicted that Democrats will resort to fraud in an attempt to steal next year's presidential election.

While Rolling Stone mocked Trump's allegations, a new poll suggests that he is far from along in believing that his case is being guided by politics rather than the law.

A survey carried out by Quinnipiac University between June 16 and June 19 found that 62% of Americans believe Trump's prosecution is politically motivated.

While Republicans are most likely to hold this view, with 91% saying the charges are politically motivated, 65% of independent voters and even 28% of Democrats say so as well.

Biden has faced no consequences for keeping documents in garage

This perception may stem from the fact that President Joe Biden has faced no consequences for keeping classified documents in his office at the Penn Biden Center and the garage of his home in Delaware.

Biden defended his decision to keep classified material next to his Corvette during an exchange in January with Fox News' White House correspondent Peter Doocy, saying, "My Corvette’s in a locked garage, ok? So it’s not like it’s sitting out in the street."
