Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he was under investigation for the events surrounding the storming of the Capitol. The former president is due to appear before a grand jury in four days. He suggested that further criminal charges would be brought against him.

“Deranged Jack Smith, prosecutor of the DOJ [Departamentu SprawiedliwoĹ›ci] Joe Bidensent a letter (it was a Sunday night!) stating that I was the target of a grand jury investigation on January 6, and giving me a very short four days to appear before a grand jury, which almost always means being arrested and charged,” he wrote Trump on his social network TRUTH Social.

In a lengthy statement he posted, he said that he was once again the victim of political persecution and this is another “election interference”, indicating that he may be an opponent of President Biden in next year’s election. At the same time, he maintained his false theses about electoral irregularities.
