Former President Donald Trump
Former President Donald Trump made a stunning revelation on Tuesday. He shared that he has been informed by special counsel Jack Smith that he is now a criminal target of a Washington, D.C. grand jury. This grand jury is investigating his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
In a surprising announcement on Truth Social, Trump revealed that he received a “target letter” from Smith’s office on Sunday night. The letter offered him the opportunity to appear before the grand jury this week. While it remains unclear what charges Trump would face, this development suggests that another indictment could be on the horizon. It is worth noting that Trump is already facing indictments in Manhattan for alleged “hush money” payments to Stormy Daniels and in Florida for mishandling sensitive documents, as per Smith’s office.
Trump took to the social media platform to express his frustration, calling Jack Smith “deranged” and accusing him of being part of Joe Biden’s Department of Justice. He highlighted the urgency of the situation, stating that he was given a mere four days to report to the grand jury, which typically indicates an imminent arrest and indictment.
A hearing for the classified documents criminal case is scheduled for Tuesday before Florida District Judge Aileen Cannon. Trump’s legal team is seeking a delay until after the 2024 election, while Smith’s team is pushing for the case to proceed as planned.
In addition to these three indictments, Trump is also under investigation by a Georgia state prosecutor for his alleged attempt to overturn Biden’s narrow victory in the Peach State during the 2020 election.
Despite these mounting legal troubles, Trump continues to lead a large Republican primary field in the race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. According to a recent Morning Consult poll, Trump holds a commanding lead at 55%, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at 20%, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy at 8%, and Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence, at 7%.
