Law enforcement agencies are reportedly preparing for the possibility of his indictment in relation to the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.
A spokesperson for Mr Trump later clarified that that there “has been no notification” of an arrest or charges, other than “illegal leaks” to news outlets.
Meanwhile, a federal judge ordered his attorney Evan Corcoran to give evidence before a grand jury regarding conversations he had with the former president regarding classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago property in Florida.
On social media, Mr Trump triumphantly returned to Facebook and posted no less than eight videos to his Truth Social account on Friday.
YouTube also announced an end to his ban from the platform after the video-sharing site and others suspended the former president in the aftermath of the attack on the US Capitol.
Former President Donald Trump has hit out at one of the lead prosecutors on the New York Stormy Daniels hush money case — Michael Colangelo — whom he claims was “quietly snuck into the local Manhattan DAs office” from the Justice Department.
Mr Colangelo’s appointment was widely reported in early December 2022 and he previously worked on the investigation into Trump’s Seven Springs estate in Westchester County.
Mr Trump posted:The person heading up the New York City investigation into the now ancient, and many times debunked, Stormy “Horseface” Danials [sic] matter, is none other than top DOJ (D.C.) operative Matthew Colangelo, one of Merrick Garland’s senior officials, who was quietly snuck into the local Manhattan D.A.’s Office so that DOJ could say they weren’t involved with this local persecution of a popular (75 Million Votes!) President.
Who knows, though, maybe they’re there to make it legit?
