Rolling Stone: Trump Warns He Could ‘Certainly’ Indict Political Opponents If He’s Reelected

Rolling Stone

Donald Trump gave his first interview to Univision on Thursday and reminded the nation that should he resume the presidency, he could very well embark on a revenge tour against his political enemies. The next morning his son, Don Jr., floated installing an acting attorney general who wants to unleash a “reign of terror” against those responsible for Trump’s indictments, as well as a pro-white nationalist press secretary. 

“What they’ve done is they’ve released the genie out of the box,” Trump told Univion’s Enrique Acevedo of the many indictments and criminal cases currently leveled against him. “If they do this and they’ve already done it, but if they want to follow through on this, yeah, it could certainly happen in reverse.” 

That special prosecutor could potentially find themselves under the direction of Mike Davis, a former aide to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch who has been floated as a potential pick for Trump’s attorney general, including by Don Jr. this week. 

“There are a couple people you could put in positions like that, we talk about Mike Davis as Attorney General,” Trump Jr. said during a Q&A segment on his podcast. “You almost have to, just put them in as interim even, just to send that shot across the bow to the swamp … let Mike Davis and Kash Patel to be like interim AG’s. Put Laura Loomer as press secretary for just a couple of days.” 

Davis floated a similar plan in August, discussing a hypothetical “three-week reign of terror as Trump’s acting attorney general.”

“Before I leave town with my pardon from President Trump, I have five lists that I’m ready to go,” Davis said. “List number one is fire. I’m gonna fire as many people as I can, and the list number two is an indictment. Frankly, I could indict a ham sandwich and these goofball Democrat prosecutors like Alvin Bragg and Jack Smith and Fani Willis and the civil fraud prosecutor Tish James up in New York, and we may have two other goofballs, Michigan attorney general and this Arizona attorney general.”
