Trump news – live: Biden has privately said ex-president should be prosecuted, report says

Trump urges Putin to unleash dirt on Biden family

Joe Biden has privately said he believes Donald Trump should be prosecuted for the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol, according to a report.

Mr. Biden told members of his inner circle late last year that the single-term president was a threat to democracy and action should be taken against him The New York Times.

Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former White House adviser Jared Kushner has appeared virtually before the House Special Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots in the Capitol. His testimony is said to have been “really valuable”.

The meeting comes because White House records provided to the committee by the National Archives and Records Administration do not show any calls Mr. Trump made or received through the White House switchboard for eight hours that day. The panel is now investigating whether Mr Trump or his advisers used untraceable “burner phones” to bypass official recording systems.

Meanwhile, Trump’s bespoke social media platform Truth Social is reportedly in poor shape with downloads down 93 percent and user engagement low. The platform has been promoted as a censorship-free environment for its supporters to meet free from “big tech” sanctions, but the president has yet to post on it and is said to have complained to his advisors about his troubles.

In other news, the former president has invited controversial Congressman Madison Cawthorn to speak at his upcoming rally in the congressman’s home state of North Carolina, despite his recent admonition by party leadership for comments about cocaine and orgies.

Finally, thanks to reggae singer Eddy Grant, Mr Trump could face a day in court as the investigation phase of a copyright infringement lawsuit is extended. The former president failed to get the case dismissed.

Mike Lindell says he spent $35 million to prove Trump won the election

The businessman, who was one of the biggest supporters of Mr Trump’s false claim that he had punched Joe Biden, attended a rally for the year-old former president at the Michigan Stars Sports Center in Washington Township, Michigan on Saturday.

Mr Trump delivers a rally speech in Michigan later on Saturday night.

Mr Lindell told CNBC in December that he spent $25 million to prove Mr Trump won, meaning he has spent another $10 million so far in 2022.

Mr. Trump and his allies have lost more than 60 election-challenge suits filed in state and federal courts across the country, and the Supreme Court, which has three Trump-appointed individuals, also declined to deal with them.

Will Trump be indicted for January 6th?

The Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump last year of inciting a riot in the Capitol. But neither Trump nor any of his top advisers have been charged in court over the attack, and it’s uncertain if they ever will.

But increasingly lawmakers on the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack are urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate Trump and his associates. They have laid out possible crimes and openly discussed others in at least one court filing, all related to the violent attack by Trump supporters that day to disrupt Congress’ formal confirmation of his re-election defeat.

Here’s a look at some of the proposed crimes floated by the House Panel:
