Biden’s fishing expedition to find some criminal wrongdoing against Trump continues.
Tonight we learn that the special counsel investigation Trump for January 6th is now investigating Trump for wire fraud.
Here’s more from Mediaite:
Former President Donald Trump is reportedly under investigation by federal prosecutors probing the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol for alleged wire fraud related to his fundraising efforts between the 2020 presidential election and President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
The Washington Post broke the news on Wednesday evening, citing “eight people with knowledge of the investigation” who “spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing criminal investigation.”
The report is authored by investigative political reporters Josh Dawsey and Rosalind S. Helderman, as well as FBI correspondent Devlin Barrett and congressional reporter Jacqueline Alemany.
The report explains that Special Counsel Jack Smith is looking at potential wire fraud crimes committed by Trump and his “fundraising operation” for using false claims of election fraud to elicit donations, which would “violated wire fraud laws.” The Post notes that under federal law it is “illegal to make false representations over email to swindle people out of money.”
Mediaite reports that Jack Smith has sent subpoenas to a whole bevy of Trump people involved in his 2020 presidential campaign.
The subpoenas, which were issued in early March, have not previously been reported and are aimed at gathering private communications between Trump and his fundraising staff to better understand whether or not they believed the claims behind their messaging, which the Post reports “generated more than $200 million in donations from conservatives.”
Tucker Carlson reported on the investigation tonight and made clear that this ‘wire fraud’ investigation is just another attempt to sideline the Republican frontrunner:

They just can’t stop investigating Trump and it’s absolutely disgusting.
Biden doesn’t want to actually beat his biggest opponent with actual votes. No he wants to use his government to try and convict Trump of a crime and remove him from the race altogether.
It’s Democrat authoritarianism at its worst.
