Donald Trump charged in connection with the storming of the Capitol
According to US media, the former US president has been informed of charges being filed in connection with attempts to cancel the 2020 election.
Trump is charged with four counts: conspiracy against citizens’ rights, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct a trial, and obstruction of a trial. The ex-president is subpoenaed in federal court on August 3.
The fact that the prosecutor investigating the Trump case is going to charge him, the ex-president himself announced a few hours before. He said that what is happening is an attempt to influence his election campaign. “Why didn’t they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long?”. Trump is now leading by a wide margin in voting for the Republican presidential nomination.
