Donald Trump raged against investigators as an indictment looms over his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House, and he urged his followers to "fight" on his behalf.

Lawyers for the former president met with the Department of Justice on Monday to argue against an indictment in the Mar-a-Lago case, and Trump issued a denial the following morning insisting that he had not broken any laws and misleadingly compared his handling of sensitive materials to President Joe Biden and former vice president Mike Pence.

"The Marxists and Fascists in the DOJ & FBI are going after me at a level and speed never seen before in our Country, and I did nothing wrong," Trump posted on Truth Social. "Joe Biden kept (keeps) thousand of documents, in many locations, some illegally taken from skiffs while he was a Senator, a big portion of which were classified. He didn’t want to give them back, and still doesn’t. Nothing happens to him, with same reasonable prosecutor who correctly exonerated Mike Pence. I have a much different prosecutor, a Trump hater!"

Trump accused the Department of Justice of targeting him because Republicans were investigating Biden and his son, and to prevent him from winning a second term after losing in 2020.

"It’s all about ELECTION INTERFERENCE," Trump posted. "They don’t want to run against me. I ran twice, I did much better the second time, getting millions and millions more votes than the first, a record for a sitting President, and am leading Biden in the polls, by a lot. They are the Party of Disinformation! They are using the DOJ & FBI against me to Rigg the 2024 Election. They’ll hit Hunter [Biden] with something small to make their strike on me look 'fair.' Nothing about these Fascists is fair or honest. FIGHT!"

"They are also going after me as RETRIBUTION for the Republicans in Congress going after them," Trump added. "The difference is, they have created major crimes, I have created none!"

The FBI conducted a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago in August after the National Archives determined the former president had not returned all government documents, as required by law, and investigators found dozens of boxes filled with sensitive materials after Trump's lawyers had provided sworn certification that all those records had been returned.

Special counsel Jack Smith obtained a recording showing that Trump knew he had retained classified material after leaving office and suggested he would like to share that information but knew his authority was limited to declassify records since he was no longer president.

Biden's attorneys discovered the president had classified materials from his time as vice president and immediately returned them to the National Archives, and he permitted a search of his private residence in Delaware that turned up additional documents that were also returned.

Attorneys for Pence also found classified materials at the former vice president's residence in Indiana, which were immediately returned to the National Archives, and the DOJ closed its investigation of that matter and found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
