Donald Trump to appeal against ‘rigged’ conviction – as he says prosecutors just wanted to know if he was ‘a bad boy’ | US News

Former President Donald Trump has filed an appeal against what he claims to be a “rigged” conviction, stating that prosecutors were only trying to find out if he was “a bad boy.” Trump, who has been facing legal troubles since leaving office, continues to maintain his innocence and asserts that the charges against him are politically motivated.

The appeal comes after Trump was convicted on charges of tax fraud and other financial crimes related to his business dealings. The former president has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and has accused prosecutors of conducting a witch hunt against him.

In a statement released by his legal team, Trump expressed his frustration with the legal proceedings, stating, “This is nothing more than a political hit job designed to tarnish my reputation and undermine the will of the American people who elected me as their president.”

Trump’s appeal is expected to focus on the alleged bias of the prosecutors and the handling of evidence in the case. His legal team has argued that key evidence was mishandled and that the charges against him are based on flimsy evidence.

Despite the legal challenges he is facing, Trump remains defiant and has vowed to fight the charges against him. He has continued to rally his supporters, claiming that he is the victim of a deep state conspiracy to take him down.

The outcome of Trump’s appeal remains uncertain, but the former president has made it clear that he will not go down without a fight. As he continues to battle the legal system, Trump remains a polarizing figure in American politics, with his supporters standing by him and his critics calling for justice to be served.
