Trump News Today – Latest: Jan. 6 panel considers ex-president’s call as top aides receive subpoenas, phones confiscated

Trump’s ex-lawyer believes the ex-president is in legal danger

The Department of Justice has said it is willing to accept one of Donald Trump’s nominees for “special master” in his legal dispute with the FBI.

Federal prosecutors filed a legal file Monday night to sign the motion of Raymond Deere, a 78-year-old former U.S. District Judge appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1986.

The private master is a trusted third party reviewing top-secret documents from Mr. Trump’s Florida home in Mar-a-Lago to determine whether any should be excluded from the case.

This came after the Justice Department’s investigation into the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021 expanded in a dramatic way as dozens of current and former Trump aides were called to testify and documents, some of whom even had their phones confiscated.

The Department of Justice’s first concrete step was to focus the agency’s January 6 investigation around the White House and the president, rather than just riot control.

Liz Cheney talks about Trump’s “danger”

Representative Liz Cheney said Donald Trump’s unwillingness to leave the White House after his defeat in the 2020 presidential election “underscores the reality of the gravity” of his efforts to nullify the election.

Ms. Cheney made these statements in response to the disclosure of a new book by the author The New York Times Journalist Maggie Haberman, who claimed that the former president told aides that he would remain in the White House even after Joe Biden’s inauguration.

“People are saying it wasn’t as serious as it really was,” she told CNN on Monday.

“And when you hear something like that, I think you have to realize that we have never been in a no-man’s-land and have never been in it before as a nation…I think, again, it only underscores, and confirms the reality of danger.”

Cheney says the new revelations reveal the real “danger” to Trump

Trump tracks Saturday’s rally in Ohio

Donald Trump is set to appear in Ohio on Saturday to boost the state’s governor and Senate candidates – the latter of whom, J.D. Vance, is struggling to break out of the margins of error in a seat occupied by retired Republican Rob Portman.

Based on his recent gathering in Pennsylvania, Mr. Trump will likely spend most of the event talking about himself and venting about his various grievances. Here’s his trailer for the event – which is already being ridiculed because its timing goes against a major football game in Ohio.

QAnon rabbit hole takes more lives

A Qunun follower and election denier killed his wife and injured one of his sons after he “fallen down the rabbit hole of the conspiracy,” his daughter said.

Officers were talking with a neighbor in the 1200 block in Glenwood Court when they heard the shooting and returned fire from Lance, according to Detroit news.

Hannity presents list of Trump investigations

Longtime Trump defender and Fox News host Sean Hannity last night engaged in a lengthy monologue about a supposed “witch hunt” directed at the former president, and in the process, provided his viewers with a scrolling list of the myriad investigations into Mr. Trump, his allies, and his business affairs.

The list of harrowing investigations – many of them unfinished – was not so much a reminder of the extent of the ex-president’s “persecution” as much as a showcase of the number of legal threats he faces as he contemplates the 2024 campaign.

Trump’s top advisor’s phone has been seized, and the Department of Justice has issued dozens of subpoenas

Monday saw a major development in the Justice Department’s Jan. 6 investigation, which is said to now include at least some of the efforts by Donald Trump and his team to nullify the election.

Federal agents confiscated the phone of Boris Epstein, the Trump 2020 campaign strategic adviser, while he and dozens of others received subpoenas to testify or obtain information.

This development is troubling for Trump’s inner circle as the former president already faces a separate investigation into keeping apparently classified documents in Mar-a-Lago, while state investigators in Georgia are also investigating his campaign work to reverse the findings in that state. .
