There seems to be no end to Biden’s quest to find some criminal wrongdoing against Trump, and he continues to search to pile on endless criminal charges.
It’s now been revealed that the special counsel who is investigating Trump for the events on January 6th 2020
has now been metastasized into a full federal investigation into suspicion that Trump committed wire fraud.
Mediate reports on the breaking development:
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 has reported that Jack Smith has issued subpoenas to a whole host of Trump associates directly involved in Trump’s 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.”
Smith’s office has sent subpoenas in recent weeks to Trump advisers and former campaign aides, Republican operatives and other consultants involved in the 2020 presidential campaign, the people said. They have also heard testimony from some of these figures in front of a Washington grand jury, some of the people said.
Tucker Carlson, the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, recently reported on the investigation, explaining that this fishing expedition into ‘wire fraud’ is nothing more than another attempt to sideline the Republican frontrunner.

The investigation of Trump won’t stop. It’s a grotesque abuse of power to control the outcome that suits those doing the digging, or who their uppers are pushing them to investigate in a manner of “show me the crime and I’ll show you the criminal.” It’s not innocent until proven guilty, it’s conjuring up a crime(s) and pinning it on a political opponent that stands against the establishment.
Rather than relying on actual votes to beat his biggest opponent, Biden wants to use the government tools he has at his disposal to convict Trump of a crime and remove him from the race altogether. That’s a far more feasible approach for him to win, given his perpetually declinging approval ratings.
This is the worst kind of Democrat authoritarianism.
