CNN plays tape of Trump appearing to show off classified military documents
Donald Trump’s supporters were gathering this weekend in Pickens, South Carolina where the 2024 Republican presidential hopeful was expected to speak at a Fourth of July rally.
It came as The Independent revealed that the Department of Justice is preparing to seek indictments against multiple figures in Mr Trump’s orbit and may yet bring additional charges against the former president in the coming weeks.
According to sources familiar with the matter, DOJ has made preparations to bring what is known as a “superseding indictment” — a second set of charges against an already-indicted defendant that could include more serious crimes — against Mr Trump. The justice department could do so in a number of different venues, depending on how prosecutors feel the case they have brought against him in a Florida federal court is proceeding, sources said.
Mr Trump’s other legal troublesappear to be hotting up after it emerged that former campaign official Mike Roman was reportedly cooperating with investigators probing his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Sources told CNN on Thursday that Mr Roman, who was involved in the fake electors scheme, has reached a proffer agreement with special counsel Jack Smith’s office. Rudy Giuliani is also said to have taken such an agreement.
