Donald Trump has now alleged that people in his circle are being threatened with spending time in prison unless they denounce him. The comments were made by Trump during his speech at a Saturday rally in Youngstown, Ohio.
Former President Donald Trump has claimed but has not provided any evidence, that the government has threatened those in his circle with prison time. The rally in which Trump made these allegations was called the Save America rally.
Trump claimed that these people will tell his associates and those in his circle that they could face five or ten years in prison unless they spoke negatively about the former President. He has also said that none of the people in his circle has agreed to denounce Trump because of the threats.
Trump did not specifically say whom he was referring to regarding these allegations. During his speech, Trump spoke about some of his usual points, including the several investigations he has faced over the past six years, including the latest FBI raid into his Mar-a-Lago estate.
The FBI raid was in collaboration with the Department of Justice and it was part of an investigation of the general way in which Trump handled federal records. Trump also spoke up about what he has dubbed the “political repression” of his supporters. Many believe this to be about all those who were arrested as part of the January 6, Capitol riots. Finally, he claimed that there had not been any other American President in history who had been persecuted to the same extent he had.
