Taking to his Truth Social platform, former President Trump asserted that he is being threatened with ‘arrest and indictment,’ with only a short four-day window to react to the letter he received on Sunday evening.
Trump indicated that he has been extended an invitation to testify before the grand jury, a meeting set to occur at the federal courthouse in Washington D.C. later this week.

This comes amidst growing criticism of the investigation into the Capitol riots from Trump and his supporters. The former president has frequently railed against the committee, highlighting what he and many of his supporters see as an unchecked power grab from the left.
The former president’s announcement that he is now a ‘target’ seems to confirm the fears of many conservatives that the probe is a partisan attempt to discredit Trump and his legacy. As the investigation continues to unfold, one thing is certain: supporters of Trump will continue to question the fairness and impartiality of the proceedings, underlining the increasingly polarized nature of American politics.
As with previous legal battles, Trump remains unflinchingly defiant, refusing to bow to the pressure and continuing to call out what he perceives as the committee’s bias and overreach. Regardless of the outcome of this investigation, it is clear that Trump will continue to be a powerful force within the conservative landscape, with a base that remains committed and supportive.
