Donald Trump impeachment – breaking news
Donald Trump continues to be criticized for his use of the term “riggers” in a Truth Social rant, with his former aide Alyssa Farah saying it’s “not a racial dogwhistle” — it’s actually a you racist “bullhorn”.
The former president and 18 of his allies were indicted on Monday for running a criminal enterprise to try to suppress the will of the American people and keep Mr Trump in power at all costs.
They were ordered to surrender for arraignment on August 25 where they will be booked into the Fulton County Jail for mugshots and fingerprints to be taken – just like any other criminal defendant.
After the announcement, Mr Trump admitted in a Truth Social rant that he would share an “undisputed” report on his baseless claims of election fraud at a press conference on Monday morning.
In the post, he also used what appeared to be a racist dog whistle – “RIGGERS” – while referring to Black litigators and political opponents.
“The fact that he introduced race in this prosecution surprised me, it’s disgusting, it’s a Donald Trump book, but it’s not surprising,” Ms Farah told CNN in her comments.

This morning on Truth Social: Bashing Biden and more criticism of Fox
Donald Trump began his day by again blaming his legal woes on President Joe Biden and admitting that none of the tests should be allowed before the 2024 election.
Remember, all of these Indictments, Federal, State, and Local, were conceived and created by Crooked Joe Biden and his staff of Radical Left Lunatics and Thugs for the purpose of interfering with the 2020 Presidential Election. None of these trials should be allowed to begin before the Election. Republicans need to get stronger and smarter, NOW!
He then had another round of media criticism aimed at Fox News for showing “the worst pictures of me, especially the big “orange” one with my chin pulled back.
Why don’t Fox and Friends show all the Polls where I beat Biden, by a lot. They just don’t do it! Also, they tend to show the worst photos of me, especially the big “orange” one with my chin pulled back. They think they can get away with something, they don’t. It’s like 2016 all over again…And then they want me to debate!
