The Justice Department notified Trump on Tuesday that a grand jury had voted to indict him over his efforts to hold on to power following his loss in the 2020 election, including his actions leading to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. He has been summoned to appear in court at 4 p.m. on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, the former president’s lawyers met with prosecutors in Washington, D.C., while the grand jury was hearing evidence in the case. Trump faces four new federal charges in the indictment. The allegations follow a state indictment in New York on fraud charges and a federal indictment in Florida charging him with mishandling classified documents and obstructing justice.
