Former President Donald Trump claimed Democrats and the Biden administration were already meddling in the 2024 election.

Taking to Truth Social on Wednesday (May 17) morning, two days after U.S. special counsel John Durham had released a report revealing the FBI lacked “actual evidence” to probe Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and relied heavily on tips from Trump’s then-political opponents to substantiate the investigation, Trump suggested he was “being framed by the FBI and DOJ.”

In an all-caps post on Truth Social, Trump claimed that attempts to frame him were continuing through investigations into the “[classified documents] boxes host,” the “‘perfect’ phone call” with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Manhattan Attorney General “scam.”

He described the several legal battles he was facing as mimicking Former FBI Director “James Comey and the sleazebags,” adding they are all running “interference in 2024 through illegal law enforcement against Republicans.”

Trump added that he was the primary target of this interference.

Trump, who is seeking to reclaim the nation’s highest office, faces criminal charges in New York and two investigations by federal prosecutor Jack Smith into Trump’s retention of classified documents and his role in swaying the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In a post on April 5, Trump referenced the “weaponization” of law enforcement and called on Congressional Republicans to “defund” the Justice Department and FBI “until they come to their senses.”

At that time, he suggested that the 2024 Presidential election was “already under siege,” saying Democrats had “totally weaponized law enforcement.”
