Donald Trump ‘notified he is target’ of investigation into attempts to overturn 2020 election | US News

Donald Trump has said he has received a letter notifying him he is a target in a US Justice Department investigation into efforts to undo the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Mr Trump said in a post on his Truth Social platform that he received the letter informing him on Sunday night.

Such a letter can precede an indictment and is used to advise individuals that prosecutors have evidence linking them to a crime.

The former president received one ahead of being charged last month in a separate investigation into the mishandling of classified documents.

A spokesman for special counsel Jack Smith, whose office is leading the investigation, declined to comment.
