Sudden Arrest of Trump’s Opponent Castro, Many Questions Raised

Donald Trump’s opponent Castro’s sudden arrest

Many cases of Castro have been dismissed by the courts. The cases have been filed in the states of Florida, Arizona, and Nevada. One may note that there was no participation of Castro in the insurrection lawsuits that resulted in Trump’s removal from the 2024 ballots in the states of Colorado and Maine.

The decision is being currently appealed by Trump. Castro is a Republican who claimed in his lawsuits that he would be directly impacted if Trump is also on the 2024 ballot. According to him Trump I constitutionally ineligible and his presence on the ballot will affect his White House ambitions.

A previous ruling was held in November so that Castro’s lawsuit against Trump in New Hampshire could be dismissed. The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit declared that the attempts of Castro were “non-existent”, hence, the lawsuit was thrown out.

Castro defending himself

Castro defended himself in an interview with Newsweek. There he claimed that the allegations of federal tax charges against him were totally based on a misunderstanding.

According to Castro, the issue was resolved with the Internal Revenue Service in 2021. Immediate corrective actions were taken by him as he filed the amendment returns. Castro believes that the charges are being brought against him as a retaliation for his election lawsuits against the former president.

The US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, Leigha Simonton, announced the allegations put on Castro. She has been nominated by President Joe Biden.

Indictment on Castro

Castro filed the lawsuit against Trump after three years in September 2023. There was an attempt to secure the indictment by impaneling a grand jury and presenting the issue. According to Castro that was a bogus move.

The issue was discussed back in 2020 and was further resolved in 2021. He does not understand the need to wait three more years to issue the indictment. The impaneling of the grand jury is pure and total political retaliation.

Castro claims this is Trump’s trap

The claims are similar to the allegation that Trump had used the IRS to target his perceived enemies according to Castro. A watchdog of the IRS- the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said in 2022 that the audits of Comey and McCabe in 2017 and 2019 were completely random. Castro said that this is Trump’s way of sidelining him.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas declined to comment. As the indictment says, an undercover agent got in touch with Castro’s company in 2018 regarding the topic of reductions. Castro informed the agent that if he did not use his company as the tax preparer he would only get a $300 deduction, but, his company offered an amount of $6,000.

The tax return of the agent was filed which claimed $29,339  fraudulent deductions. There was a refund of $6,007. Castro kept $2,999 and the remaining was given to the agent.

The attorney’s office claimed that Castro has repeated the same pattern multiple times. Castro is looking forward to this trial. He is planning to sue the government after he is found innocent. However, he will have to serve 99 years in prison if found guilty.
