Criminal defendant Donald Trump is urging the Supreme Court to step in amid what he deems as “weak lawsuits” targeting him.

"Weak Lawsuits"

Taking his concerns to social media, the former president lamented, “Crazy! My political opponent has hit me with a barrage of weak lawsuits which require massive amounts of my time [and] money to adjudicate.”

Calling Out Biden

Venting further, he asserted, “Resources that would have gone into ads and rallies will now have to be spent fighting these radical left thugs in numerous courts throughout the country. I am leading in all polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is election interference [and] the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!”

The Lawsuits Are Unprecedented

In a subsequent post, the former president hinted at the unprecedented nature of the lawsuits against him, implying that they might be unconstitutional. It seemingly didn’t cross his mind that such occurrences were rare because no former president had previously faced as many allegations and committed as many crimes as he has.

Trump Took To Social Media

“Biden [and] Garland file bogus cases against me so it becomes difficult for me to campaign. Nothing like this has ever happened before. Must be unconstitutional? But somehow, we will win it all!” Trump wrote.

Moving To An "Impartial Venue"

The criminal defendant further alleged that Washington D.C. is “anti-Trump” and proposed relocating the case to “an impartial venue, such as the politically unbiased nearby West Virginia.” He pointed out that in 2020, he had won in Virginia.
