Trump shares threatening fan-made video

Donald Trump has been busy bullying his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, including Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie and Asa Hutchinson, on Truth Social as he approaches a near-jury indictment Friday for his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his role in inciting the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

Mr Trump announced on Tuesday that special prosecutor Jack Smith had sent him a letter informing him that he was the “target” of the investigation, citing three statutes under which he could be charged, including conspiracy to commit an offense or defraud the United States, deprivation of rights under color of law and tampering with a witness, victim or informant.

That indictment, Mr Trump’s third in four months, could be handed down this week, The Independent is learned.

William Russell, a former White House aide who now works for Trump’s presidential campaign and spent much of January 6 with the then-President, is believed to have testified before the grand jury on Thursday.

The former president was given until today to report to the Washington, DC federal courthouse, but, with a midnight deadline in place, he is not expected to appear.

Trump mocks Republican foes, says Christie’s hopes ‘as dead as his stomach band’

In an apparent attempt to escape his latest legal troubles, Donald Trump is once again taking offense to his Republican enemies on Truth Social.

“Ron DeSanctimonious, backed by Fox, is Finished. Against Social Security & Medicare – and, less important, NO PERSONAL!!! Thank you Karli,” he wrote in one post to his social account.

Clearly keen to be on the roll himself, he followed that up by declaring: “Vivek Ramaswamy is hitting DeSanctimonious now. Christie dead as a stomach band. “Aida” Hutchinson solid minus 1%. I’m up 44 points!!! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

Ooof. That’s just cruel.
