Trump indicates he expects to be arrested in federal January 6 investigation – live
"Former US president says he has received target letter from special counsel Jack Smith asking him to report to grand jury
Donald Trump has claimed he received a letter informing him that he is a target in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
Posting to the Truth Social platform, Trump said he received “horrifying news” from his attorneys on Sunday night. Trump wrote:
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.
Target letters are typically given to subjects in a criminal investigation to put them on notice that they are facing the prospect of indictment."
