Trump indicted on 4 counts related to effort to overturn 2020 election

Former President Donald Trump was reportedly indicted on Tuesday for criminal charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn the presidential election of 2020.

The former president said on Truth Social that he expected to be indicted by special counsel Jack Smith by 5 p.m.

Just after 5 p.m., several sources reported that the grand jury had handed up a sealed indictment in the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C. The four counts included conspiracy to defraud the U.S.

Trump issued a pre-emptive criticism against the indictments, which would be the third set of indictments for the former president.

"I hear that Deranged Jack Smith, in order to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024, will be putting out yet another Fake Indictment of your favorite President, me, at 5:00 P.M.," wrote Trump.

"Why didn't they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long? Because they wanted to put right in the middle of my campaign! Prosecutorial Misconduct!" he added.

“A Nation In Decline!” Trump added in a second post.

In March, Trump was first indicted by a Manhattan grand jury over charges related to hush money paid to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who said she had an affair with then-candidate Trump. Trump has also been indicted for alleged misconduct related to the classified documents that were seized from his residence at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

Trump had called on his supporters to demonstrate after the first indictments.

"Protest, take our nation back!" he wrote on Truth Social.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
