(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NEWS NOW: On Tuesday, Donald Trump announced he had been identified as a potential subject in a criminal investigation related to the events of January 6th, which special counsel Jack Smith is leading.
Currently, Trump stands out as the top prospect for the Republican presidential candidate in 2024. Smith had previously charged Trump with nearly three dozen counts connected to keeping classified documents after he departed from the White House.
Moreover, Trump hinted that he might soon be facing charges related to the investigation of the events on January 6th. This investigation mainly revolves around Trump’s attempts to dispute his defeat in the 2020 election against current President Joe Biden.
Trump shared his statement on his social media platform, Truth Social.
NBC News received confirmation from two individuals knowledgeable about the investigation that Smith had issued a target letter to Trump about the case.
“Deranged Jack Smith, the prosecutor with Joe Biden’s DOJ, sent a letter (again, it was Sunday night!) stating that I am a TARGET of the January 6th Grand Jury investigation, and giving me a very short 4 days to report to the Grand Jury, which almost always means an Arrest and Indictment,” Trump posted on his Truth Social platform.
When asked for a response, Smith’s spokesperson chose not to comment.
A court hearing regarding the criminal case related to the classified documents is scheduled for Tuesday in a Florida federal court.
The lawyers representing Trump have requested that any trial related to this case be postponed until after the 2024 election. However, Smith’s prosecutors are against this proposal.
In a separate case, Trump is also being investigated by a state prosecutor in Georgia for his efforts to convince election officials in that state to overturn his loss to Biden.
