(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday former President Donald Trump spoke for the first time about the way his legal battles might affect his presidential campaign. So far this year Trump has been indicted in three separate cases, two of which are federal cases. It is also anticipated that he may end up getting indicted in a fourth case in Georgia over his attempts to overturn the election results in 2020.
The two federal cases against Trump were led by the Department of Justice’s investigation. The first case relates to Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents after leaving the White House in 2021, while the second case relates to Trump’s attempts to overturn the presidential elections and his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.
He was also charged in April in a case in Manhattan that relates to a hush money payment made on his behalf to an adult film star prior to the 2016 presidential election. He is charged with falsifying business records in this case.
Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges related to these cases and has maintained that he committed no wrongdoings. He has also taken to Truth Social to attack federal prosecutors for pursuing the cases against him because of political bias.
On Monday, Trump questioned why the charges against him came now and not two and a half years earlier. He then proceeded to argue that the legal cases were forcing him to spend money and time on the cases instead of his campaign, which he is currently winning.
