Trump Targets DA and Judge, Reviving His 'Stop the Steal' Slogan

By    |   Tuesday, 26 March 2024 05:23 PM EDT

Former President Donald Trump, who never lets a good slogan go to waste, on Tuesday reprised "Stop the Steal," which he and his supporters used while contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Several "Stop the Steal" rallies were held by Trump supporters after that election, which Trump claims he lost because of rampant voter fraud. One rally occurred on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C., before the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

In a Truth Social post Tuesday, Trump renewed claims that Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was pressured by Biden administration officials to take to trial a case that accuses the former president of falsifying business records to cover for a hush-money payment made by his former attorney Michael Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump noted Bragg's appointment of Matthew Colangelo, a former senior official in Biden's Department of Justice, as an assistant district attorney. Colangelo also helped Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James' prosecution of Trump in a civil fraud trial of which Trump is appealing a $464.4 million penalty.

Trump also renewed his call for Judge Juan Merchan to recuse himself from the hush-money case because, like Bragg, he is beholden to Democrats.

"D.A. Bragg fought everyone about trying this 'no crime' case, but Crooked Joe Biden's 'Thugs' pushed him to go forward, and pushed him hard," Trump wrote. "They wanted him to go after ME, Crooked's Political Opponent. He just didn't want to do it. They ended up sending Matthew Colangelo, Merrick Garland's 'right hand,' after a stop at the Corrupt and Racist New York State A.G. Letecia [sic] 'Peekaboo' James' Office, to directly oversee the D.A., perhaps to make sure that Bragg followed their illegal orders and commands.

"He eventually agreed to do the 'case' that he never wanted to do. [Mark] Pomerantz and Cohen were 'death.' Now their hope is that Judge Juan Merchan, who should be recused, will pull them through. STOP THE STEAL!"

Pomerantz worked under Bragg but resigned when Bragg declined to pursue potential business fraud charges against Trump, deferring to James. Pomerantz authored a book "People vs. Donald Trump" about the experience. Trump has denied any wrongdoing in James' case that accuses him of overstating his assets to get favorable loans.
