Former President Donald Trump on Saturday cast his federal indictment as election interference and an abuse of power by the Biden administration.

Speaking to the crowd at the Georgia Republican Convention in Columbus, Trump made his first public remarks since the Department of Justice unsealed an indictment a day earlier laying out its case that the former president and an aide mishandled classified documents.

“The ridiculous and baseless indictment of me by the Biden administration’s weaponized ‘Department of Injustice’ will go down as among the most horrific abuses of power in the history of our country,” Trump said. “This vicious persecution is a travesty of justice.”

Despite his past and impending legal troubles, Trump remains the 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner.

“They’ve launched one witch hunt after another to try and stop our movement,” he told the crowd. “They’re not coming after me, they’re coming after you.”
