According to a post on TRUTH Social, former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is expecting a 3rd indictment from Special Counsel Jack Smith at some point on Tuesday evening.
“I hear that Deranged Jack Smith, in order to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024, will be putting out yet another Fake Indictment of your favorite President, me, at 5:00 P.M.” Trump posted on his TRUTH Social. “Why didn’t they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long?”
He added: “Because they wanted to put it right in the middle of my campaign. Prosecutorial Misconduct!”
From Fox News:
This would be the second federal indictment the former president faces out of Smith’s investigation. Trump, who leads the 2024 GOP presidential primary field, has already pleaded not guilty to 37 counts related to his alleged improper retention of classified records from his presidency.
Those charges include willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements. Trump was charged with an additional three counts as part of a superseding indictment out of that probe last week.
This would be the second time in U.S. history that a former president has faced federal criminal charges.
