DOJ Says Trump’s Target in 2020 Election Case

In a recent development, previous President Donald Trump has communicated on Tuesday that he received a notification indicating his status as a subject of the Justice Department’s inquiry into the endeavors to overturn the 2020 presidential election outcome. This development hints at a possible upcoming indictment by federal prosecutors.

Trump disclosed on his Truth Social media outlet that he was “issued a letter (this happened on Sunday night again!) declaring that I am a SUBJECT of the Grand Jury investigation related to January 6th,”.

He revealed this information on his Truth Social forum, sharing that he was served the target letter while spending time with his family on Sunday night. A target letter is generally sent before an indictment to inform the concerned individuals that there is evidence tying them to a crime. Trump received a similar notification before he was charged last month in a distinct investigation concerning the mishandling of classified information.

When contacted for a comment, the spokesperson for special counsel Jack Smith, leading the investigation, chose to remain silent.

The prosecutors have spread a wide net for their probe into Trump and his allies’ endeavors to halt the power transition to Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump, currently the leading early contender for the Republican nomination, has plans to visit Iowa on Tuesday where he is slated to record a town hall with Fox News presenter Sean Hannity.

Separately, Georgia’s prosecutors are pursuing an investigation into Trump’s efforts to reverse his election defeat in the state, with the chief prosecutor in Fulton County hinting at announcing charging decisions in the upcoming weeks since Sunday.

In his post, Trump asserted that “they have essentially indicted me three times now…. with a likely fourth coming from Atlanta” and underscored in uppercase, “This witch hunt is entirely about election meddling and an absolute and total (political) weaponization of law enforcement!”

Last month, Trump was charged on 37 felony counts alleging his illegal possession of hundreds of classified documents at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago. He has refuted the charges. A pretrial conference for this case has been scheduled for Tuesday in Fort Pierce, Florida.
