Trump says telling former first lady about new indictments is "unpleasant"

 August 3, 2023

Fox News reported on Tuesday that former President Donald Trump was again indicted by Special Counsel Jack Smith, this time in Washington, D.C. on four federal charges relating to the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

While the charges could potentially bring decades behind bars, Trump recently complained of another consequence: having to tell his wife about them. 

"It's always unpleasant"

According to Business Insider, Trump recently expressed frustration to radio host John Fredericks, telling him, "It's always unpleasant when you have to go in and tell your wife that, 'By the way, tomorrow sometime I'm going to be indicted.'"

"And she says, 'For what?'" the former president continued before adding, "And I say, 'I have no idea. I have absolutely no idea.'"

Business Insider reported earlier this year that former White House advisor Kellyanne Conway Trump spoke about Trump's relationship with his wife while testifying before the House committee investigating the January 6 riot.

"He reserves — he listens to many of us, but he reserves fear for one person, Melania Trump," Conway was quoted as saying.

More indictments may come in Fulton County

It appears that Trump will soon be hit by another indictment, with CNN reporting last week that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has wrapped up her investigation of whether Trump illegally sought to influence the outcome of Georgia's election results.

"The work is accomplished. We’ve been working for two and half years. We’re ready to go," Willis was quoted as saying. She added that any potential indictments will be announced on September 1.

However, Trump expressed confidence during his interview with Fredericks that legal problems won't affect his election chances.

"The public is very smart"

"First of all, the public is very smart. They know it, they study it. This isn't like, 'Gee, he held a gun in plain view and he shot someone," Trump remarked.

"Or, 'He robbed a bank and he got caught.' When you look at the things that they did with Hillary Clinton where she deleted 33,000 emails and there was no problem--after a subpoena--and there was no problem," he continued.

"When you look at all the things they've done, so crooked. They're crooked, and look at the way they handled the election. They're crooks and they're horrible people, and we have to win this election," the former president insisted.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
