Cornered Donald Trump Rants on Truth About ‘Deep State’ and Begs Democrats to Stop ‘Witch Hunt’

On Wednesday, Donald Trump released a video blasting what he calls the “Deep State” and “revolving door” between them and the big tech companies in the US.
In a nearly-four-minute video on Truth, Trump promised a platform of routing out censors of free speech and strengthening borders “when” he becomes president again.
And on Thursday, he took to Truth early to beg for an end to the “witch hunt” and for the firing of special counsel Jack Smith. The former POTUS also rehashed his favorite complaints about the 2020 election.
It’s all a sign that Trump is feeling more cornered than ever.
Donald Trump Blasts ‘Deep State’

In the Wednesday afternoon video, Trump started out by blasting what the so-called “Twitter Files” revealed. Which is communication between high-level executives at Twitter and the FBI as they tried to counter online threats and bolster safety heading into the 2020 election.
But the way the files are playing out online, it looks like a genuine swing at censorship and people on both sides of the political aisle are concerned about the implications of big tech companies coordinating with government to choose what content can be displayed online and what can’t.
It’s a stunning clash between private business and their ability to self-determine, even when it comes to coordinating with the government – and fears of censorship.
Trump has capitalized on concerns over what the files show, pointing to the fact that a lot of the information censored seemed to help his rivals.
In the video, Trump adds that it’s time to end the “revolving door” between the “Deep State” and “big tech” companies which he says is the kind of censorship that hurts the American people.
For nearly four minutes, Donald Trump switched between complaining about online censorship to complaining about the loss of the 2020 election – and promised great things when he returns to the Presidency.
Donald Trump Begs Dems to Stop ‘Greatest Witch Hunt in American History’
If you thought the greatest witch hunt in American history was the actual “witch hunt” wherein 25 innocent men, women and children were executed in Salem, Massachusetts for being “witches,” Trump wants you to know that you’re wrong.
The ceaseless quest for legal accountability that has him dogged from every angle is the worst, according to the former POTUS.
Trump has long bemoaned what he calls the “Russia, Russia, Russia hoax” and the “witch hunt” he feels were launched against him simply to dismantle his legacy.
In a new 3-part Truth Social rant, Trump blasted special counsel Jack Smith, begged Dems to stop, and once again complained about losing the 2020 election – which this year will be three years old.
Early Thursday, Trump wrote, “Page 1. The Special ‘Prosecutor’ assigned to the ‘get Trump case,’ Jack Smith(?), is a Trump Hating THUG whose wife is a serial and open Trump Hater, whose friends & other family members are even worse, and as a prosecutor in Europe, according to Ric Grenell, put a high government official in prison because he was a Trump positive person. Smith is known as ‘an unfair Savage,’ & is best friends with the craziest Trump haters, including Lisa Monaco who runs ‘Injustice.’ The Boxes Scam is a HOAX…”
He added, “Page 2. For seven years, from the day I came down the escalator in Trump Tower, the Democrat Party has WEAPONIZED the ‘Legal’ System, using City, State, and Federal Law Enforcement against me and the Republican Party as though they were a Private Protection Agency. The greatest Witch Hunt in American History must end now. I beat the Fake Impeachments, the disgraceful Mueller Persecution, and much else that the Fake News doesn’t want to write or talk about, but this charade MUST STOP NOW!!!”
Trump then concluded, “Page 3. Fire a man who may very well turn out to be a criminal, Jack Smith. His conflicts, unfairness, and mental state of derangement make him totally unfit for the job of “getting Trump.” Go after Biden and the Biden Crime Family instead. Like Bill Barr, the U.S. Attorneys in Delaware and Illinois are weak, ineffective, and afraid to do what must be done. The Election was RIGGED, and we are now losing our Country. We can’t let that happen. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Unfortunately, with Trump no longer in the President’s seat, he can’t do anything about the closing jaws of the Department of Justice’s investigations. Or the investigation into election interference currently tying up loose ends in Georgia. Or the Mar-a-Lago documents case. Or any lawsuit or rape charge he’s currently facing.
News also broke Thursday that Smith is requesting information from Trump’s circle on who’s covering his legal bills – likely a driving force in what has the former POTUS feeling so boxed in.
In short, the former President is cornered – and 2024 is still a long way away.
