President Donald J. Trump Indicted Again; Charged in January 6 Probe

Former President Donald Trump has been indicted for the third time this year, this time by a federal grand jury over his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his alleged involvement in the January 6 Capitol riot. Federal prosecutors accuse Trump of engaging in a conspiracy to defraud the government and obstructing an official proceeding by attempting to block Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

This indictment is another unprecedented legal challenge for Trump, who is a leading contender for the 2024 presidential race. The Justice Department, led by Special Counsel Jack Smith, brought the charges against him. It comes after a 34-count indictment in March by the Manhattan district attorney’s office for falsifying business records to hide hush-money payments made to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

The House of Representatives committee investigating the Capitol riot had recommended four criminal charges against Trump, including inciting an insurrection and conspiracy to defraud the US. Prosecutors have been investigating his meetings with politicians between December 2020 and January 2021 when he falsely claimed to have won the election, as well as his actions during the riot.

Trump’s legal team will likely try to delay a potential trial until after the 2024 election. Other investigations in Georgia and Michigan are also focusing on his attempts to overturn election results in those states. Apart from these legal challenges, Trump is facing several other trials and investigations, including ones related to his business dealings and endorsement of a multi-level marketing scheme, as well as a rape and defamation trial from E. Jean Carroll.
