President Donald Trump remarked that he would “absolutely” take the stand in his own defense if asked to testify during his upcoming trials.

During a radio show interview with Hugh Hewitt, Trump admitted that he is looking “forward” to testifying, comparing his recent indictments to the 2016 Russia collusion hoax.

“I look forward to testifying. At the trial, I’ll testify,” said Trump. “Because that’s just like Russia, Russia, Russia.”

Trump has repeatedly blasted the FBI’s baseless investigation into whether his 2016 presidential campaign colluded with the Russian government to win the election.

In fact, Special Counsel John Durham reported that it was Hillary Clinton and the DNC who reportedly funded the false Steele dossier that dishonestly linked Trump to Russia.

“Remember when the dossier came out and everyone said, ‘oh, that’s so terrible, that’s so terrible,’ and then it turned out to be it was a political report put out by Hillary Clinton and the DNC?” said Trump.

“They paid millions for it. They gave it to Christopher Steele. They paid millions and millions of dollars for it, and it was all fake,” he told Hewitt.

Per RSBN, the Clinton campaign reportedly hired a technology firm to “infiltrate” Trump Tower and White House servers to tie the 45th president to Russian operatives, according to a filing from Special Counsel John Durham.

Regarding Trump’s legal case surrounding his alleged mishandling of classified material, he told Hewitt that he is “totally covered under the law,” according to the Presidential Records Act.

Trump added that classified materials were discovered in Biden’s Delaware home and the Penn Biden Center, though he never faced any legal consequences for his alleged misconduct.

“It’s a civil act,” said Trump. “Now, Biden had no civil act. The things he did are criminal, but he doesn’t have a deranged person on his case. You know, they gave me the deranged Jack Smith.”

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith in November to begin a parade of legal pursuits against President Trump. Smith was appointed nine days after Joe Biden said that “under legitimate efforts of our Constitution,” he would make sure Trump “does not become the President again.”

Trump was first indicted on 34 felony counts by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for the supposed hush money payments he made during his 2016 presidential bid.

Shortly thereafter, Jack Smith indicted Trump on 37 felony counts over his alleged possession of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Smith later imposed four federal charges against Trump for his involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol Building riots.

In August, Fulton County Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis charged the 45th president for his alleged efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.
