Trump reacts to ‘abuse’ by DOJ: ‘This is what you get’ for leading the polls

EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump, reacting to the latest charges against him from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation, slammed the Justice Department for “abuse,” and said “this is what you get” for leading the polls for the White House in 2024. Trump, who is atop the 2024 GOP presidential primary field, was charged Thursday with an additional count of willful retention of National Defense Information and two new obstruction counts as part of a new “superseding” indictment out of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into his alleged improper retention of classified records.  Trump was indicted in June on charges stemming from Smith’s investigation into his alleged improper retention of classified records after his presidency. Trump pleaded not guilty to 37 counts, including willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements. “It’s election interference at the highest level,” Trump told Fox News Digital just after he learned of the latest indictment. “They’re harassing my company, they’re harassing my family and by far, least importantly of all, they’re harassing me.”  Trump told Fox News Digital that “the charges are ridiculous, and they know it better than anyone.” “This is prosecutorial misconduct used at a level never seen before,” Trump said. “If I weren’t leading Biden by a lot in numerous polls, and wasn’t going to be the Republican nominee, it wouldn’t be happening. It wouldn’t be happening.”  Trump added: “But I am way up as a Republican and way up in the general election and this is what you get.”  Trump told Fox News Digital that “our country is suffering from DOJ abuse.”  “Hopefully the Republican Party will do something about it,” Trump said.  This is a developing story.
