Trump nominee in 2024: storming the Capitol, secret documents… these cases that could embarrass him

It was expected, but now it’s official: Donald Trump is the candidate for the White House for 2024. The Republican, the former president of the United States between 2016 and 2020, announced this Tuesday night into Wednesday, playing the mystery for the past few weeks, and despite a mixed midterm election for him. It is in this context that several cases pursue him. But to what extent can they prevent him? Le Parisien analyzes these pitfalls on a case-by-case basis.

A parliamentary committee is investigating Donald Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021 attack on his supporters against the Houses of Congress, when elected officials confirmed the victory of his rival Joe Biden in the presidential election. At a highly publicized hearing, she testified that he had warmed up his supporters to a coup and “failed in his duty as commander-in-chief” during the assault.

This Democratic-majority commission summoned him to appear, but he sued to avoid the summons. Therefore, its members must submit their final report by the end of the year without hearing it.

In this document, they will be able to recommend filing a case against Donald Trump, but the final word will remain with Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose services have already brought charges against more than 870 participants in the attack. Known for his methodicalness and caution, the minister does not exclude anything. “Everyone who is criminally responsible for trying to annul the election will have to answer for their actions,” he said.

Leaving the White House, Donald Trump took with him whole boxes of documents. However, a 1978 law requires all American presidents to hand over all their emails, letters, and other business papers to the National Archives. Returned 15 boxes in January. After checking, the federal police concluded that he likely kept others at his palatial residence in Mar-a-Lago.

On August 8, FBI agents conducted a spectacular search there, based on a warrant to “conceal secret documents” and “obstruction of a federal investigation,” and seized about thirty more cases. Federal prosecution remains possible.

New York State Attorney General Democrat Letitia James has filed a civil lawsuit against Donald Trump, his children, and his Trump Organization group. She accuses them of “deliberately” manipulating the valuation of the group’s assets, including golf clubs, luxury hotels and other real estate, to secure better bank loans or tax cuts. She is seeking $250 million in damages on behalf of the state, as well as a ban on the management of companies for the ex-president and his relatives.

In parallel, the Manhattan prosecutor is investigating the criminal side of this case. Several members of the group were charged and the trial began in late October. However, this does not directly concern the former president.

The Georgia State Attorney has been investigating “attempts to influence election operations” in the southern state won by Joe Biden in 2020 since 2021. In a phone call that has been released, Donald Trump asked a senior local official, Brad Raffensperger, to “find” about 12,000 ballots in his name.

Fanny Willis, district attorney for Fulton County, which includes Atlanta, has appointed a grand jury to determine if there is enough evidence to indict the real estate mogul. She has already managed to collect testimony from her relatives, in particular from her ex-personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
