President Donald Trump rolled up in Washington, D.C. in his motorcade on Thursday afternoon to face his third indictment of 2023.
He was arraigned on four federal counts at the behest of a grand jury investigating his involvement in the so-called “insurrection” that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. According to The Hill, he pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Before arriving in D.C., Trump noted on Truth Social that it was his “GREAT HONOR” to be arrested on behalf of the American people. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” he wrote.
He also pointed out the duplicity in the DOJ’s dogged pursuit of himself while Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the entire Biden family have come under intense scrutiny for allegedly raking in millions of dollars from foreign business dealings.
He wrote, “Biden and his family steal Millions and Millions of Dollars, including BRIBES from foreign countries, and I’m headed to D.C. to be ARRESTED for protesting a CROOKED ELECTION. UNFAIR VENUE, UNFAIR JUDGE. We are a Nation in Decline. MAGA!!!”
According to RSBN guest host Vanessa Broussard, NBC News reported that Trump was being released on the condition that he not communicate with other witnesses without special counsel present.
The first hearing date in the case has been set for August 28, 2023, multiple outlets have reported. That date could be subject to change based on arguments from the defense.
