Former President Donald Trump is actively engaging state and local Republican prosecutors in order to enlist their support amidst his ongoing legal fights involving numerous, concurrent indictments.
Donald Trump is currently confronted with two federal indictments, one of which accuses him of mishandling sensitive documents, while the other alleges that he violated the law in his attempts to contest the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. The individual in question is currently confronted with an indictment in Georgia pertaining to election-related matters, including his endeavors to contest the voting process within that state. Additionally, he faces another indictment in New York, which accuses Trump of manipulating company documents in relation to payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I hope that Republican district attorneys and attorneys general throughout the country are closely watching the tremendous weaponization of justice that is being utilized against me. There’s NEVER been anything like it,” Trump stated in a social media video.
The video has gained significant online attention and widespread popularity.

“You ought to watch. Frankly, it’s ‘an eye for an eye,’ or it’s ‘fight fire with fire.’ What they’re doing to our country is amazing,” he said.
“So, Republicans, I hope you’re watching,” he said.
The words made by the previous president were highly appreciated by Trump’s most devoted fans, who perceived them as a characteristic display of bombastic rhetoric.
The aforementioned comment also garnered some criticism, as expressed by Ron Filipkowski in his article on meidastouch.com: “Trump is in full meltdown panic mode.”
Trump is “effectively calling on Republicans to just lock up Democrats because reasons,” according to Kerry Eleveld, a Daily Kos writer.
On social media, many hailed the remarks as a crucial example of the breadth of Trump’s problems, while others predicted his demand for action would yield minimal results.
Someone needs to start a campaign and publicly expose all these RINOs

A lot of people fail to realize the gravity of the situation, Trump is going to jail. Now it’s probably a Mar-A-Largo jail, but the result is the same. They will prevent Trump from running. That’s why the uniparty is now attacking Vivek. He’s Trump 2.0, but more focused.

He finally understands that the deck is stacked, he is being railroaded by the entire political apparatus.
It's time to go scorched earth and to use the power that he has, they are going to jail him.
