Trump Faces Third Charge of Storming Capitol Hill

Former US President Donald Trump is accused for the third time.

After allegedly illegal payments to two women who wanted to reveal his extramarital affair and various allegations related to stolen secret documents found at his Mar-a-Lago residence, Trump is now being accused of storming Capitol Hill and trying to undermine the results of the 2020 election.

The disputed allegations relate to a conspiracy to defraud the United States, that is, an attempt to interrupt official procedure and participate in a plan to disenfranchise people under the Constitution. Given that no president or former president of the United States has ever been charged with a felony, the scale of the problems Trump is facing is impressive. But his defends is based on calling all this “witch hunt” and “political repression.”

In essence, Trump, who is meanwhile the front-runner in the 2024 GOP primary, is being challenged for trying to use his power and influence to undermine the election that brought to victory Joe Biden. In January 2020, a demonstration by Trump supporters took place in Washington DC who tried to storm the Congressional building on Capitol Hill.

The mogul expressed his opinion through his Truth social network, “I heard that the deranged Jack Smith, in order to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, will publish another false accusation against your beloved president… Why didn’t they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long? Because they wanted to do it right in the middle of my campaign.”
