Former President Donald Trump appeared in Washington, D.C., on Thursday for his arraignment in his new criminal case that concerns his attempts after the last presidential election to stay in power despite his documented loss to Joe Biden. Besides maligning the current look of Washington, D.C., Trump the next morning pleaded in a post on Truth Social for ostensibly corrective action by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump continues to allege he is the victim of election interference being carried out through the now three separate criminal cases that he is facing. The investigations that led to all of these charges were underway and publicly known before he formally confirmed his latest campaign for president. As for his push for the Supreme Court to step in, the court has rebuffed his entreaties in the past, having repeatedly turned back high-profile challenges after the last presidential election to its handling and outcome.

“CRAZY! My political opponent has hit me with a barrage of weak lawsuits, including D.A., A.G., and others, which require massive amounts of my time & money to adjudicate,” Trump posted Friday. “Resources that would have gone into Ads and Rallies, will now have to be spent fighting these Radical Left Thugs in numerous courts throughout the Country. I am leading in all Polls, including against Crooked Joe, but this is not a level playing field. It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede. MAGA!”

Trump is facing criminal charges in addition to the litigation. One lawsuit, from New York state Attorney General Letitia James, will go to trial in October of this year. That case focuses on allegations of financial deception at Trump’s family business — misrepresentations that were allegedly positioned to provide that business with financial benefits whether on their taxes or in the terms of loan agreements. As for polling, results alternate between showing Trump in the lead and depicting a Biden victory. Trump is not “leading in all Polls” that measure a match-up for the general election.
