Former President Trump wants the Supreme Court to intervene in his mounting legal challenges.
Hours after the former president appeared in a Washington, D.C. courtroom on Thursday for his arraignment to enter his not-guilty plea to the four charges he is facing in Jan. 6 case he called on the Supreme Court to intercede in the political witch hunt against him.
Trump in a post also said the multiple cases against him will require “massive amounts” of time and money and force him to use resources on court battles that could have been used for advertisements and rallies.
“I am leading in all Polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!” Trump said.
He has been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempting to obstruct an official proceeding and conspiracy against rights.
The indictment marked the third filed against Trump in the past few months.
Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges and maintained that he is being prosecuted for political purposes because of his position as the frontrunner for the GOP nomination for president in 2024. Trump has dominated the polls since announcing his campaign.
