Department of Justice notifies Trump he will be investigated

Former United States President Donald Trump stated today that he received a letter informing him that he is under investigation by the Department of Justice regarding his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential elections. This indicates that he may soon face charges from federal prosecutors.

Trump made the claim in a post on his Truth Social platform, stating that he received the letter while with his family on Sunday night.

Such a letter can precede an indictment and is used to inform individuals that prosecutors have evidence linking them to a crime; Trump received one before being charged last month in a separate investigation involving mishandling of classified documents.

A spokesperson for special counsel Jack Smith, whose office is overseeing the investigation, declined to comment.

Smith's investigation has focused on a wide range of schemes by Trump and his allies to keep him in power, including the use of lists of so-called "fake electors" in battleground states won by Biden but disputed by Trump.

On the other hand, prosecutors in Georgia are conducting a separate investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn his electoral defeat in that state, and the top prosecutor in Fulton County indicated that she expects to announce charging decisions next month.
