Federal prosecutors have notified Trump he is target of investigation – Politico


(Reuters) – Federal prosecutors have notified former U.S. President Donald Trump that he is the target of an investigation, Politico reported on Wednesday.

The prosecutors sent Trump a letter informing him of the investigation, Politico reported. No further details were immediately available.

Trump lawyers met with Justice Department officials earlier this week.

A federal grand jury has been investigating Trump’s retention of classified materials after leaving the White House in 2021.

A second criminal investigation is looking into alleged efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn his 2020 election loss to Democratic President Joe Biden.

It was not immediately clear which case the target letter refers to.
