Donald Trump recently received a warning from his lawyers and advisors that he should prepare for the possibility of being indicted for the second time this year, according to reports from Rolling Stone. Trump has been informed that several legal and political counselors have warned him that he could face charges of obstructing justice before the FBI raided his Florida estate last year.
These conversations have taken place in the aftermath of Trump’s indictment by prosecutors in Manhattan in April for falsifying business records and not long after Fulton County officials decided to pursue election fraud charges. Trump’s close associates and legal team have suggested that he should brace himself for another legal battle.
However, Trump has responded indignantly, questioning what he perceives as selective targeting and asking, “What about Joe Biden?” Nonetheless, Trump’s lawyers and advisors have reportedly advised him to prepare for potentially more charges.
It remains uncertain if the Justice Department will ultimately bring charges against Trump. Nevertheless, signs suggest that the investigation is nearing its end. There is speculation that Democrats could file indictments as they grow increasingly nervous about Trump’s potential re-entry into the political arena. Trump’s former attorney general, Bill Barr, has acknowledged that the documents case is the most significant cause for concern for the former president. In addition, two of Trump’s employees apparently moved boxes of papers the day before FBI agents were scheduled to visit his Florida home in June 2022, raising suspicions of potential obstruction.
