The office of former President Donald Trump on Monday released a statement claiming "political persecution."
The statement was released after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Trump's efforts to shield his taxes from Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, Jr.
Trump argued the investigation was "a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country."
"It just never ends!" he complained.
Trump, who infamously campaigned in 2016 to chants of "Lock her Up," now claims he is opposed to such rhetoric.
"The new phenomenon of 'headhunting' prosecutors and AGs—who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon—is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty. That's what is done in third world countries. Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent. That's fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won't stand for it," he argued, seemingly hinting at the violent insurrection by his supporters.
Despite the fact Trump is out of legal options, he vowed he will still prevail.
"I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!" he predicted.
