There was the standard discuss Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and why they need to be prosecuted.
It was all right here.
All the basic Trump goalpost shifting, deflection, self-pity, and blame of others.
If in case you have heard Trump discuss his earlier scandals, you’ve heard all of this earlier than.
What was lacking was a proof that may maintain up in courtroom for why he took the paperwork.
As a result of I needed to, and I feel the paperwork are mine usually are not authorized defenses. Donald Trump has nothing. It speaks to how pathetic his major opposition is that he could be below federal indictment, flailing in his speeches, and not one of the different GOP presidential candidates are near him.
