What’s Going on With Donald Trump’s Probes and Lawsuits?

The search warrant that was carried out at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida on Monday shocked the legal and political communities and revealed how quickly the Justice Department is moving forward with its criminal investigation into the handling of classified material.

Attorney General Merrick Garland finally spoke out on Thursday after days of false information about the search spread on the right, encouraged by Trump and his allies, and revealed that the department had asked the court to unseal the search warrant and property receipt.

The court has given the Justice Department the go-ahead to consult with Trump over its request to unseal some warrant records from the FBI Mar-a-Lago search and to inform the court by 3 p.m. ET on Friday if he objects to their release.

Trump declared on Truth Social late Thursday night that he would “not oppose the release of records,” adding, “I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the quick release of those documents.”

At least 15 boxes of White House records, possibly including records that were classified, were found at Mar-a-Lago, according to the National Archives, which is in charge of gathering and organizing presidential material. Federal agents served a grand jury subpoena and removed secret national security records in June.

Then, according to sources who talked to CNN, prosecutors gathered proof that there might still be classified papers on the property with ramifications for national security and had reason to believe that Trump’s team wasn’t being completely honest. Due to this, the FBI entered the premises on Monday and took additional boxes out.

According to persons involved with the inquiry, The Washington Post reported on Thursday that officials were looking for several items, including nuclear weapons-related secret materials. CNN hasn’t independently corroborated the claim.

A criminal law that forbids the removal or destruction of official government data raises a red flag in the case of any improper preservation or destruction of White House records, legal experts say to CNN.

Before the search, CNN disclosed earlier this month that Trump’s attorneys and the DOJ had been in touch directly regarding his attempts to keep conversations he had while serving as president hidden from federal prosecutors in the department’s January 6 probe.


House Select Committee and Justice Department discuss January 6 and annulling the election.

The US Capitol incident is being investigated by a House select committee, and they have found shocking proof of Trump’s behaviour before and on January 6, particularly his attempts to use political influence to rig the election.

As Jeremy Herb of CNN put it:

“Over the two months of hearings, the committee drew on hundreds of taped depositions and important witnesses who testified in person to present a devastating case that Trump sought multiple means to try to rescind the 2020 presidential election even after he was informed he had lost, that the former President knew in advance that January 6 could turn violent and that he chose not to act when his supporters attacked the Capitol and put the lives of l

Fingers were directed at Trump White House employees who failed to stop the previous President’s actions, as well as Republican lawmakers and Trump loyalists who may have attempted to help overturn the election.

Dramatically, a former White House aide’s testimony reported hearing a description of Trump demanding to be taken to the Capitol on January 6; when the request was denied, Trump is alleged to have yelled at Secret Service officials.

While the Justice Department is keeping an eye on the situation and conducting its own investigation, the federal government doesn’t need to take action even if the committee does suggest charging the DOJ.

Attempts to reverse Georgia’s election results in 2020.

Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, Georgia, is in charge of a special grand jury looking into possible actions that President Trump or his supporters may have taken to scuttle Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia.

The 16 signers of the “unofficial electoral certificate,” which was eventually forwarded to the National Archives in late 2020, have all been told by Democrat Willis that they could face charges in the investigation.

Trump may also be in the crosshairs of the inquiry. On August 17, Rudy Giuliani, a former Trump attorney, is expected to testify before the grand jury.

The investigation was started last year as a result of Trump’s phone chat with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which he urged the Republicans to “find” votes to tamper with the outcome of the election.

Additionally, Willis has been looking into Trump’s conversations with Raffensperger and another employee of the Secretary of State’s office, Giuliani’s slanted election-related speeches to state legislators, a conversation between Raffensperger and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, and the abrupt resignation of Byung “BJay” Pak, the US attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.

Meanwhile, a scheme to nominate phoney GOP electors from seven states is being investigated by the Justice Department.

Trump supporters wanted to replace legitimate presidential electors from their states with a pro-Trump slate, so they forged certificates in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, and New Mexico.

Trump Organization: criminal and civil investigations by the NY AG-

This week, after being grilled by hundreds of questions during his deposition in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ probe into his namesake company, Trump took the Fifth.

As the investigation draws to a close, James’ office stated that to ascertain who was in charge of the financial statements at the core of the inquiry, it was necessary to interrogate members of the Trump family.

Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. were recently deposed as well, and they did respond to questions. In 2020, Eric Trump was asked more than 500 questions, but he refused to respond.

The Trump Organization utilized false or deceptive asset appraisals to get a variety of financial benefits, including loans, insurance coverage, and tax deductions, according to “substantial” evidence found by James’ office, according to prior statements by the Democrat.

The long-time appraiser for the business, Cushman & Wakefield, is also a subject of the investigation. (The business contests any wrongdoing.)

The inquiry has been slammed by Trump as being politically motivated.

The Fifth Amendment must be used when “your family, your business, and everyone in your orbit has become the targets of an unsubstantiated, politically driven Witch Hunt sponsored by attorneys, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media,” Trump declared on Wednesday.
