The DOJ Has Been Criminally Investigating Trump Since At Least April

The Department of Justice has seized the phone records of Trump’s top White House aides as they have been investigating Trump’s 1/6 actions since at least April.

The Washington Post reported:

The prosecutors have asked hours of detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 and January 2021, his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers and advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states, the people said. Some of the questions focused directly on the extent of Trump’s involvement in the fake-elector effort led by his outside lawyers, including John Eastman and Rudy Giuliani, these people said.

In addition, Justice Department investigators in April received phone records of key officials and aides in the Trump administration, including his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, according to two people familiar with the matter. That effort is another indicator of how expansive the Jan. 6 probe had become, well before the high-profile, televised House hearings in June and July on the subject.

Trump Has Been Under DOJ Investigation For At Least Months

It makes sense now why Trump was rushing to announce his 2024 presidential candidacy and worried about being prosecuted. He is under criminal investigation for the fake elector scheme.

Based on the publicly available evidence, Donald Trump has a great deal to be worried about, because even an indictment would finish him politically, and politics is his primary source of income.

The hierarchy of the elector scheme is already known. John Eastman devised the scheme, and he reported to Rudy Giuliani, who reported to Trump.

Whether or not there is enough evidence to charge Trump will depend on the investigation, but we now know that Donald Trump is under investigation.
