Trump’s additional criminal charges could be imminent

Published

on

Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s legal team met with officials from the U.S. Justice Department to address the ongoing investigation into his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results

This meeting has raised speculation that additional criminal charges could be imminent.

At the federal court in Washington, where a grand jury is investigating Trump, it was confirmed that no indictments were handed down on that particular day. However, such meetings between defense attorneys and federal prosecutors are not uncommon before an indictment is issued, as seen previously when Trump’s team met with prosecutors before he was charged in a separate case involving mishandling classified documents.

It is noteworthy that Donald Trump is the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges. He has already been indicted twice this year, once in New York for hush-money payments to a porn star and once for the handling of classified documents.

Surprisingly, these charges have not dented Trump’s popularity as he remains the frontrunner in the race for the Republican nomination to challenge current Democratic President Joe Biden in the 2024 election. In fact, recent polls showed Trump’s lead over his nearest rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has grown, indicating strong support within the Republican party.

Trump’s response

Trump expressed his views on the matter via his Truth Social platform, asserting that the Department of Justice did not provide any indication of when action might be taken. He maintains that he did nothing wrong, had legal counsel advising him, and contends that an indictment against him would be detrimental to the country.

The U.S. Special Counsel, Jack Smith, is currently investigating Trump’s actions to overturn the 2020 election results, despite those claims being widely debunked. Officials have testified that Trump applied pressure with unfounded fraud allegations during his final months in office, which led to the infamous January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol by his supporters in an attempt to stop the certification of Biden’s victory.

Trump has consistently portrayed the investigations against him as politically motivated witch hunts and has denied any wrongdoing. He has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in Miami related to unlawfully retaining classified government documents after leaving office and obstructing justice. In addition, he faces a separate case in New York, where he has pleaded not guilty to accusations of falsifying business records to hide hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, a porn star, before the 2016 election.

Moreover, Trump is also under investigation by a Georgia prosecutor for his alleged involvement in efforts to overturn the election results in that state.

As this legal saga continues, the nation watches with keen interest, and Trump’s political future hangs in the balance amid ongoing investigations and mounting charges.
