Donald Trump Claims To Be The Target Of An Investigation Related To The Assault On The Capitol

Former US President, donald trumpfinds himself in the spotlight once again after stating that he received a letter from special counsel Jack Smith notifying him that he is the subject of an investigation in relation to the storming the capitol and trying to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential elections. The information was released through his social network Truth Social.

The accusations against Trump centered on his attempts to challenge the election results and his refusal to acknowledge the victory of his Democratic rival. Joe Biden. For months, Trump lobbied officials and spread unsubstantiated accusations of massive voter fraud against him.

These efforts culminated in the storming the Capitol on January 6, 2021when thousands of followers of the former president stormed the US Legislative building with the aim of interrupting the certification of electoral votes that was taking place in the Senate at that time.


The special counsel’s letter has sparked speculation about a possible indictment against Trump. Possible charges could include conspiracy and obstruction of an official process, specifically the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory by Congress. If Trump is accused, it would become the third criminal investigation against him, the second federal, that is, on a national scale.

Michigan: Felony Charges Against Voters in Alleged False Voter Scheme

On Tuesday, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced felony charges against sixteen Michiganders for their role in an alleged false voter scheme following the 2020 presidential election.

The state’s 16 Republicans have been accused of submitting a false voters list to try to reverse the results that gave the Democratic Party victory.

The day of the assault on the Capitol: a dark chapter in the history of the United States

On January 6, 2021, the United States Capitol witnessed an unprecedented event that shook the foundations of the country’s democracy. In a scenario marked by political tension, supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the building in an attempt to stop the certification of the presidential election results.

What started as a peaceful demonstration in support of Trump quickly turned into a scene of chaos and violence. Angry mobs managed to breach security barriers and penetrate the chambers of Congress, forcing lawmakers to evacuate and leaving destruction in their wake.

After using their networks as a platform to launch accusations about the “stealing of elections” by the incumbent Democratic president, Joseph R. Biden, the companies decided to block it after the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2020.

The assault on the Capitol was condemned both nationally and internationally, as it represented a direct attack on the fundamental pillars of democracy and the electoral process. Images of the mob wreaking havoc inside one of the nation’s most iconic buildings shocked the world and sparked debate about the fragility of democracy and the role of divisive rhetoric in politics.

The growing political tensions in the United States

The accusations and the possibility of a trial have generated a tense political climate. Trump’s rivals, both inside and outside the Republican Partyare in a delicate position when addressing the issue, since they must consider the strong support that the former president still has among many Republican voters.

Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing and has called the allegations against him part of a politically motivated “witch hunt.” Through his Truth Social platform, he has criticized the special counsel and the Department of Justice, accusing them of acting under the influence of current President Joe Biden.

The development of this investigation will mark a milestone in the political history of the United States and will have significant implications for the future of Trump and his wall in the political scene of the country.
