This week, the former president denied being informed by the office of special counsel Jack Smith that he should anticipate another indictment.
The former president said, “My lawyers had a fruitful meeting this morning with members of the DOJ, outlining in detail the fact that I did absolutely nothing wrong, had been instructed by many attorneys, and that an Indictment against me would only serve to further destroy our whole Country. Do not believe the fake news about anything, as there was no sign of notification during the meeting.”

According to reports, former President Trump’s attorneys were advised this week to anticipate an additional indictment, which would result in three total since the Republican front-runner launched his candidacy.
In a meeting with prosecutors in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office, Trump’s lawyers Todd Blanche along with John Lauro were reportedly informed that they should “anticipate an indictment” as part of the continuing January 6 probe.
Trump first acknowledged last week that he was the subject of a January 6 investigation.
Trump claimed on July 18 that “Deranged Jack Smith, the crazy prosecutor with Joe Biden’s DOJ, delivered a letter, claiming that I’m the TARGET of the January 6 Grand Jury inquiry, and he gave me just four days to appear before the Grand Jury, which virtually always indicates an Arrest as well as an Indictment,”
“Since the day I descended the escalator in Trump Tower, the battle has been unending,” said Trump.
The WEAPONIZED DOJ as well as the FBI target and persecute anyone who protest regarding the cheaters and the enormous fraud that occurred rather than focusing on the cheaters… These have all been Hoaxes and Scams set up to discourage me from battling for the American People — “BUT I SHALL NEVER DISCOURAGE!” The witch hunt, Trump reassured, is “ALL REGARDING ELECTION INTERFERENCE AS WELL AS A TOTAL AND COMPLETE POLITICAL WEAPONIZATION OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT!”
He said, “This is a very sad and dark time for our country.”
If the indictment goes through, it will be the third indictment against the former president in recent months. He was indicted earlier this year by a Manhattan grand jury and the Soros-affiliated DA Alvin Bragg. The indictment included 34 charges of manipulating financial documents pertaining to alleged “hush money” payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump entered a not-guilty plea.
Shortly later, as a result of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s probe into his management of White House papers, Trump was indicted; nonetheless, he has continued to assert his innocence.
The revelation is in line with a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted this week, which revealed that the majority of probable voters do not believe that political indictments would harm Trump’s chances of winning the presidency in 2024.
Following the announcement that he was the subject of the January 6 investigation, Trump’s standing in Morning Consult’s weekly tracking survey increased by four points.
