Former President Donald Trump blasted his reported upcoming indictment by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as "prosecutorial misconduct" by "radical left maniacs."
Trump delivered a speech in Waco, Texas, with pro-Trumpers waving "witch hunt" flags in the background.
The former president said Bragg is investigating him "for something that is not a crime, not a misdemeanor, not an affair.
Trump used his customary nickname for Stormy Daniels, saying he said he never liked or had an affair with her.
"I never liked horse face. I never liked [her] — it’s just not. That wouldn’t be the one. There is no one. We have a great first lady, who people really do love, and she’s done an incredible job," Trump said.
Trump said Bragg’s investigation was premeditated against him.
"He stacked his office with D.C. operatives [with] a man named Matthew Colangelo, one of the top people in the Department of Justice, was moved into the Manhattan D.A.’s office to make sure that Trump got taken care of. They couldn’t get it done in Washington," Trump said.
"And they sent him into New York to be in the Manhattan office. Can you imagine that?" Trump said.
"In order to prosecute and do everything he could to get rid of Trump because, you know, our poll numbers are through the roof," Trump added.
"This is really prosecutorial misconduct," Trump continued. "That’s what it’s called. The innocence of people makes no difference whatsoever to these radical left maniacs."
