(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – On Wednesday, former President Trump stated that he had not yet been informed whether he is going to face an indictment in connection to the special counsel’s investigation of his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House in 2021.
Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to state that at the time he had not been told by anyone whether or not he would be indicted. He added that he should not be indicted, as he had not done anything wrong and that for years he has been the “Target of the WEAPONIZED DOJ & FBI.”
As evidence for these claims, Trump pointed out the investigations he had previously faced about alleged collusion with Russia ahead of the 2016 presidential election, the impeachment inquiries against him, and the multiple probes looking into his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Trump’s Truth Social post is widely perceived as a response to a report from Just The News which stated that Trump had been informed that he was likely going to be indicted in connection to this case. In the past few days, there have been many updates in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the classified documents case. However, other outlets have not yet reported about Trump receiving any information from prosecutors regarding a possible indictment.
Still earlier this week, Trump’s legal team met with Justice Department officials, including Smith. On Wednesday, a Florida grand jury was presented with evidence in connection to this case following a long hiatus.
Trump’s legal battle is only just beginning, however. On Thursday, June 8th, Trump was formally indicted on federal charges. He faces 37 counts – 31 of them pertaining to the classified document scandal, and the other 6 related to various forms of obstruction of justice. The indictment was made public on Friday, June 9th.
