In the years before his arrest, Buttigigieg was one of Trump’s most fervent and outspoken critics.
He called Trump “the worst president in the history of the United States,” and accused him of “criminal behavior,” including “cashing in on the public outrage of the Arab Spring and the Syrian crisis.”
And he continued to criticize Trump throughout his presidency, even as he worked to build support among a Republican-controlled Congress.
The former U.S. House speaker’s most recent book, “The Truth Is Out There: A Critique of the Trump Administration,” is currently being released by Simon & Schuster.
The book, released on Thursday, features an excerpt from the arrest warrant for Buttigeg.
The excerpt, which was written by a former aide, says ButtigIGeg “had not been a productive member of Congress, but he was a prolific writer.”
ButtigEGG’s wife, Jane, said the book was written after the couple learned they would have to pay a $1,600 fine.
She said they were worried about getting arrested and that the police were concerned that they might have to appear before a judge.
“There was a lot of concern that he might be indicted,” she said.
Buttigog, 51, was arrested for violating the terms of his supervised release in January.
He was released on $2,500 bail in early February, after he posted bail and was given a chance to appear in court.
The warrant says ButtIGeg told police he was going to kill someone and that he “had never been violent, but that he would have the intention of killing someone, and that was his plan,” according to the warrant.
The arrest warrant says that Buttigigo also told police that “he believed he could carry out the planned attack by killing someone in a public place, including in a school, and was attempting to accomplish this by using a firearm.”
ButtIGIGEG told The Associated Press that he is in the process of appealing the case.
He said he hopes his conviction will help others understand the consequences of speaking out against Trump.
He added that he will continue to work to promote positive change in America.
He described himself as a “moderate” Republican and a “fellow traveler” in a letter to the AP.
“I am not trying to become the next Mitch McConnell or Newt Gingrich,” Buttigige said.
“This is about the truth, and this is about what’s right and wrong.
The truth is out there.
It is right here in front of us.”
In his book, ButtIGEGG said that while the Trump administration’s actions during the Arab spring have been “deeply problematic,” he does not see them as criminal.
“In the end, the administration’s crimes are not illegal,” ButtIGieg said.
He criticized Trump for ordering the removal of U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley from her post as the U.K. ambassador to the United Nations.
“The United States is now responsible for the removal and incarceration of a woman who has repeatedly demonstrated her capacity for diplomacy and who has shown that she can bring the best of humanity and internationalism to a nation in the midst of an ongoing crisis,” Buttieg said in the book.
“Her imprisonment is an affront to human rights and international law.”
The former congressman was released from jail in December after serving six months in a Pennsylvania jail for failure to appear on a criminal warrant.
His wife and other family members were allowed to leave the jail and were permitted to return to their homes.
He told the AP that he was grateful to be back in the U: “I think it’s good that I’m back, and it’s a relief that I’ve been able to put this behind me.
I feel like I’m ready to move on.”
The Associated News was not able to reach ButtigG for comment.
