The ongoing investigation into the events of January 6, 2021, has taken a dramatic turn as news emerges that former US president Donald Trump is anticipating an indictment in connection with the probe. The Department of Justice has been investigating whether Trump incited the riot by encouraging his supporters to march to the Capitol and challenge the election results.
Trump has denied any involvement in the riot, but the investigation is looking into whether his words and actions led to the violence. If Trump is indicted, he could face charges of inciting a riot, obstruction of justice, and other crimes related to the insurrection.
It is unclear when the Department of Justice will make a decision on whether to bring charges against the former president, who is running for re-election in 2024, but it is likely that the outcome of the investigation will have an impact on his political future.
