A federal grand jury has issued a sealed indictment Monday against former President Donald Trump–the third so far against the president, likely related to Trump’s efforts challenging the outcome of the 2020 election.
Trump will reportedly be arraigned Trump is expected to be arraigned in D.C. federal court on Thursday before Magistrate Judge Moxila A. Upadhyaya.
The indictment accuses Trump of “three criminal conspiracies.” One is a “conspiracy to defraud the United States using dishonesty, fraud and deceit.” Another alleges “a conspiracy to corruptly obstruct and impede” the Jan. 6, 2021 congressional certification of votes. The third alleges “a conspiracy against the right to vote.”
Special counsel Jack Smith has led the investigation into Trump’s actions after losing the 2020 election. This comes days after Smith added additional counts to his indictment in a federal court in Florida regarding classified documents.
Trump announced on Truth Social, his social media platform, that the indictment was coming at 5 p.m. Later several news outlets reported a sealed indictment.
“This is nothing more than the latest corrupt chapter in the continued pathetic attempt by the Biden Crime Family and their weaponized Department of Justice to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, in which President Trump is the undisputed frontrunner, and leading by substantial margins,” a statement by Trump’s 2024 campaign says.
The statement goes on to ask: “Why did they wait two and a half years to bring these fake charges, right in the middle of President Trump’s winning campaign for 2024? Why was it announced the day after the big Crooked Joe Biden scandal broke out from the Halls of Congress?”
The statement continues:
The answer is, election interference! The lawlessness of these persecutions of President Trump and his supporters is reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, the former Soviet Union, and other authoritarian, dictatorial regimes. President Trump has always followed the law and the Constitution, with advice from many highly accomplished attorneys.
These un-American witch hunts will fail and President Trump will be re-elected to the White House so he can save our Country from the abuse, incompetence, and corruption that is running through the veins of our Country at levels never seen before.
