That accomplishes several things….
Gets the media attention OVER the House hearing ands his other legal troubles….
Tries to keep his supporters focused on him…
And points them a run aginst Democratic House Speaker Pelosi…AGAIN
It tries to counter his crying about the 2020 election…
Best of ALL?
Helps him RAISE MONEY…
Something Democrats are doing also…..
“I can’t imagine I would be prosecuted,” he told me Friday. “I did absolutely nothing wrong. We have free speech.”
He may not have committed a crime, but there is plenty wrong with what Trump said and did. The long list begins with his too-hot speech that January morning, his public and private demands that then-Vice President Mike Pence overturn the election and his delay in telling his rampaging supporters to leave the Capitol.
Still, charging him criminally based on what we know would be a giant leap even for Attorney General Merrick Garland’s politicized Justice Department.

I [Michael Goodwin] had contacted the former president by phone after I learned Trump told an associate he was definitely running in 2024. Similar reports have surfaced in the past, and this one met the same fate: He wouldn’t confirm or deny he made the comment.
“Well, something has to be done but I haven’t announced anything,” he said. “But in my mind, I’ve made a decision.”
It’s a near-lock he is running but he sees no advantage in saying so now. It would mean complying with federal rules on reporting fund-raising and expenditures and would stretch the campaign to an unbearable length.
It could also change the midterm dynamics. As it stands, a red wave is forming and there is little upside credit available to Trump. On the other hand, if he announces early and the wave fizzles, he would be blamed….
Trump emailed an appeal labeling the hearings “Another Partisan Witch hunt” along with an ask for a contribution. “Joe Biden is failing BADLY, yet the radical Left socialists in Washington are pretending nothing is wrong,” says the fundraising plea….
