Fox News host Mark Levin went absolutely ballistic on Thursday night after the Department of Justice indicted former President Donald Trump.
Trump was indicted on seven counts in federal court in the Southern District of Florida, including illegal retention of classified documents, obstruction, and conspiracy. The material was retrieved by FBI agents when they executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida last August.
The former president denied wrongdoing in a video released on Thursday night.
Appearing as a guest on Hannity, Levin went on a seven-minute tirade against the indictment and screamed parts of his monologue.
“President Trump is 76 years old,” he began calmly. “If the Department of Justice gets its way, he will die in federal prison. Just by one of these counts – conspiracy to obstruct justice, which has a 20-year maximum sentence. This is a disgusting, disgusting mark on American history, for the future to come by these bandits in the White House, by the Democrat party. They don’t play fair anymore.”
Levin called the indictment a scheme to prevent Trump, who is a 2024 presidential candidate, from ascending to the White House again. he slammed Attorney General Merrick Garland and Special Counsel Jack Smith, the latter of whom is leading the probe against Trump.
“They want to take control of the country,” he continued. “They want one-party rule. And they have used the Department of Justice and the FBI to get what they want. Merrick Garland is a mob lawyer. That’s what he is. Jack Reed [sic] rogue, Soviet-style prosecutor.”
He went on to yell, “This is a documents case!” and ask, “Is this some kind of a sick joke on the American people?!”
