Former President Donald Trump has revealed that he anticipates facing a new criminal indictment related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. 

Trump made this announcement on his social media platform, Truth Social, saying that special counsel Jack Smith is likely to issue the indictment at 5:00 PM EST on Tuesday.

The potential indictment marks the third time the former president would be facing criminal charges since he began his bid for the 2024 Republican nomination. No other US president, current or former, has ever been charged with crimes.

The investigation into Trump’s election interference was led by special counsel Jack Smith, who was also in charge of a separate probe into Trump’s handling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort after leaving the White House. 

In June, Trump was charged with 37 counts related to his alleged concealment of these records from the government. Last week, he received additional charges stemming from an alleged attempt to delete surveillance footage from the Palm Beach club.

Notably, Trump has maintained his innocence in these cases and pleaded not guilty to all charges. He has consistently labeled the investigations as a “witch hunt” and believes they are part of an effort by the government to hinder his political aspirations. His legal troubles have become a central aspect of his fundraising efforts for his potential 2024 campaign.

In addition to the ongoing investigation by Jack Smith, Trump faces another potential indictment in Georgia, where investigators are examining his actions to overturn President Joe Biden’s electoral victory in the state during the 2020 election.

Despite the impending legal battles, Trump remains resolute in continuing his political pursuits. He currently holds a significant lead in national polls for the 2024 Republican nomination, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis trailing behind him by double digits.
