Former U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to dismiss anyone working for the government who does not pass a proposed civil service exam. He declared that every federal worker would have to take and pass a new civil service test to show they understand our constitutionally limited government.
His remarks were in context to the raid of Mar-a-Lago by the FBI.
The 76-year-old will be interrogated on their “due process rights, equal protection, free speech, and religious liberty.”
Trump implied that officials would be required to review “the Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable seizure and search.” This was in reference to the removal of records from his private Florida estate.
“We will put unelected bureaucrats back in their place,” he continued.
The ex-president has been railing against the ‘Deep State’ since his first run for office in 2015.
Several high-ranking government officials, including former FBI Director James Comey and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, were targets of his attacks during his presidency.
This month Trump was accused and arraigned in New York City on 34 counts of making illegal payments to silence several people, including former porn star Stormy Daniels.
Trump has consistently rejected rumors that he had an affair with the adult film starlet.
Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan is leading a group of Republicans who are suing District Attorney Alvin Bragg to dismiss the case.
Legal action against the former reality TV star will begin next week after being approved by a judge in New York on Monday.
His attorneys had stalled the defamation and violence case initiated by Elle journalist E Jean Carroll for as long as possible.
After Trump refuted Carroll’s claim that he raped her in the ’90s, she filed a lawsuit against him in November, claiming he defamed her by calling her a liar.
She also filed a new allegation of violence under New York’s new rule that allows victims of sexual assault who are now adults to sue their alleged assailant regardless of the statute of limitations.
Despite his obvious legal problems, Republican donors have been generous to his 2024 campaign, which has raised $34 million since the new year.
