It is noted that the new charges against the politician contain articles on concert to violate rights, concert to deceive the government and obstruction of an official investigation and collusion for that purpose.

Trump faces up to five years in prison for two of these charges and up to 20 for the rest.

According to CNN, the former president has already been briefed on the allegations. On Thursday, August 3, he is due to arrive at the Federal Court of the Metropolitan District of Columbia.

According to special counsel Jack Smith, the attack on the US Congress was provoked by Trump’s lies, that he was going to interfere in the approval of the electoral results. He added that the prosecution will strive to ensure that the politician’s trial is speedy.

At the same time, the White House declined to comment on the new charges against the former president. And the headquarters of the Trump campaign said that in this way the US administration is trying to interfere in the upcoming elections.

Let us remember that on January 6, 2021, on the eve of the approval by legislators of the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the US presidential election, supporters of then-President Donald Trump arrived in Washington. The crowd advanced towards the Congress, broke the police lines and broke into the legislative building. Then five people died. The estimated amount of damage done to the Capitol building was $1.5 million.
