Trump expects January 6 indictment 'any day now'
Walls close in even further: Trump expects January 6 indictment ‘any day now’ – while Georgia DA Fani Willis reveals she is ALSO close to decision on if he should be charged
- Trump predicted he faced grand jury indictment within days
- He once again attacked prosecutors as ‘Thugs’
- Fulton County DA Fani Willis said she is ‘ready to go’
Former President Donald Trump predicted he faces a grand jury indictment will be coming ‘any day’ – on a day one of his Mar-a-Lago employees was in federal court on another case and a Georgia prosecutor hinted her team is ‘ready to go’ on yet another case that could ensnare in Trump.
Trump’s post tore into special counsel Jack Smith, days after prosecutors followed a superseding indictment on the classified documents case charging Trump with conspiracy to commit obstruction and other allegations.
He has already confirmed receipt of a ‘target’ letter related to the January 6 case, and is now saying he may soon be charged in that probe related to his election overturn effort.
‘I assume that an Indictment from Deranged Jack Smith and his highly partisan gang of Thugs, pertaining to my ‘PEACEFULLY & PATRIOTICALLY Speech, will be coming out any day now, as yet another attempt to cover up all of the bad news about bribes, payoffs, and extortion, coming from the Biden ‘camp,” Trump wrote.

‘This seems to be the way they do it. ELECTION INTERFERENCE! PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT!’
Trump’s reference to protected speech could reflect a reliance by investigators on his public comments, including telling a January 6 crowd to ‘fight like hell’ before a mob stormed the Capitol.
In another development, prosecutors could be combing over Trump’s 2020 statements to ‘stop the count’ even as votes were being tabulated as evidence related to a new way to charge him, under a statute that makes it a crime to prevent the counting of ballots.
The former president’s outburst came as his head of maintenance at Mar-a-Lago, Carlos De Oliveira, was in federal court in Miami after being charged with carrying out a conspiracy with the former president to obstruct a probe of classified documents found there. He did not file a plea.
Another Trump aide, Walt Nauta, has already been charged, amid reports Trump has spent $40 million battling charges or potential charges in court.
Prosecutors for Smith met with Trump’s lawyers last week. Smith is handling both the documents case and the January 6 probe
Fulton County DA Fani Willis is speaking out the probe in her county, where action is expected in August
His landlord, Tiberio Almeida, said he moved from Portugal to Massachusetts over 30 years ago, and then moved to Florida
The indictment quotes De Oliveira telling an employee ‘the boss’ wants a server wiped, during a period after a grand jury subpoena seeking the return of materials
In Georgia, barricades are now set up around the Fulton County courthouse where still more Trump charges could come.
Fulton County DA spoke out about the case following back-to-school events in her area.
‘I think that the sheriff is doing something smart in making sure that the courthouse stays safe,’ Willis said regarding the security measures.
‘I’m not willing to put any of the employees or the constituents that come to the courthouse in harm’s way,’ she told Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA.
She has committed to taking action on he case by Sept. 1.
Willis said she’s holding true to her commitment to giving the American people an answer by Sep. 1. This could be Trump’s third indictment case of the year.
‘The work is accomplished,’ she said, ‘We’ve been working for two-and-a-half years. We’re ready to go.’
