( – On Sunday, June 11, former President Donald Trump claimed that the federal indictment filed against him was only meant to act as a “distraction” against the House Republican probe into President Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

In an interview for the debut episode of “The Roger Stone Show” on 77 WABC, which is hosted by Roger Stone, his longtime ally, Trump claimed that his indictment was done because of “political reasons.” He added that it was meant to help “cover up” the crime that House Republicans were uncovering in connection to President Biden and his entire family. He said that if you actually look at what happened and the amount of money that the Biden family received, it becomes clear why they needed a “distraction.”

Trump is currently facing charges for his handling of a number of classified documents found last year at his Mar-a-Lago residence. He was arraigned on Tuesday in court, where he pleaded not guilty. He’s expected to go to trial in March 2024 for his other criminal case involving Stormy Daniels, but it’s still unclear when the classified documents trial will begin.

House Republicans have launched a months-long probe into the “Biden family’s influence” looking into the business schemes that the family was allegedly connected to, while also examining the concerns that have been expressed surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Last week, House Oversight lawmakers were given access to an FBI document that included information from a confidential source that alleged that Joe Biden, during his time as vice-President, had been part of a bribery scheme with foreign officials. Trump added that most likely soon there would be a small charge against Hunter Biden, but that while they would claim it is “fair” in reality it would not be a fair one. He noted that currently, they were in a “very, very corrupt country.”

Hunter Biden is currently under investigation by the U.S. attorney in Delaware, who will decide whether to press charges against the President’s son in connection to possible tax-related violations.
