Trump Receives Target Letter From Biden’s DOJ, Says They Will Arrest and Indict Him Over Jan 6
By Libby Emmons | Brooklyn NY
Trump released a statement on Monday, saying that he was notified on Sunday that Biden’s DOJ considers him a “target of the January 6th Grand Jury.” This, Trump said, “almost always means an Arrest and Indictment.”
“Deranged Jack Smith, the prosecutor with Joe Biden’s DOJ, sent a letter… 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 wrote.
Trump accused Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland and the “Department of Injustice” of issuing a third indictment against him in what many have called a political prosecution. Trump leads Biden in some 2024 presidential polls, and is clearly far and away the GOP frontrunner for the party’s nomination.
The Biden administration, Trump alleged, has “effectively issued a third Indictment and Arrest of Joe Biden’s number one political opponent.”
Prosecutor Jack Smith is already prosecuting Trump for what the DOJ now claims is “obstruction of justice” after claiming that Trump interfered with documents in his possession that were under a DOJ subpoena. Trump asserts fully that any documents that remained in his possession after his term as president were rightfully in his possession, per the Presidential Records Act which states that a president can determine for themselves what documents are personally theirs and what should go to the National Archives.
Trump also faces prosecution in New York on charges that he falsified business records. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg has charged Trump with felony counts of this usually misdemeanor charge. Bragg that there was a secondary crime in which Trump was planning to engage after the alleged records falsification. Bragg has refused to disclose what that second alleged crime was.
