Trump’s Inner Circle Hit As Feds Seize Phones In J6 Investigation

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The Deep State strikes back. That’s literally what this saga of Democrat corruption could be called.

The phones of advisers to Donald Trump, the 2024 GOP front-runner, have apparently been confiscated by federal authorities, marking a significant development in the continuing investigation into the events of January 6, 2021. Among those taken were the phones of campaign manager Mike Roman, who oversaw Trump’s 2020 election day activities, and in-house attorney Boris Epshteyn, who is in charge of organizing Trump’s legal strategy.

As Trump stated on Tuesday morning that he had gotten a letter from Special Counsel Jack Smith, the phones were taken into custody. According to the letter, Trump is “a target of the January 6th grand jury investigation,” and he has only four days to appear before the grand jury. This was viewed by Trump as a sign of an upcoming arrest and indictment.

Epshteyn is well recognized for having participated in a variety of capacities both during the campaign and Trump’s following administration. Epshteyn worked mostly on communications and messaging while serving as a senior counselor to the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. He was chosen to serve in the Trump administration as Special Assistant to the President and Assistant Communications Director for Surrogate Operations following Trump’s victory. But after a few months, he resigned from this position.

Epshteyn worked as a political analyst after departing the White House and frequently appeared on TV programs. He also held the position of Chief Political Analyst with the conservative media organization Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Roman, on the other hand, is a political operative and consultant who is well-known for his work with the Republican Party. He has a long background in politics, particularly in “voter integrity” and election monitoring. He served as the head of Election Day operations for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, which is possibly why he is most known for that job. In this capacity, he was in charge of managing the campaign’s efforts to keep an eye on the polling stations and guard against voter fraud.

Trump, who considers himself to be Biden’s top political rival, blasted Smith and Biden’s Department of Justice in a post on Truth Social, for issuing a third indictment which is basically a threat to arrest him.

Following Trump’s arraignment in Miami last month, where the Biden DOJ claimed that he had inappropriately held records after leaving office, a breach of the Presidential Records Act, there is now a chance for another indictment. DA Alvin Bragg also summoned Trump to court in Manhattan and filed felony counts of fabricating business documents against the Republican.

Trump’s advisors’ phones being taken is a significant development in the continuing investigation and suggests that the former president may face additional federal charges.

However, it is uncommon for the phones of a former president’s aides to be taken. This is partly because inquiries into a president who is in office or has just left office, as well as their closest advisers, are exceedingly uncommon in American history.

In many ways, the probe into what happened on January 6, 2021 is unusual and unparalleled. It raises a variety of legal and constitutional concerns, such as those pertaining to the scope of presidential authority and the freedoms of speech and assembly.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election did result in the seizure of electronic equipment and the issuance of subpoenas to individuals from President Trump’s campaign and administration. Even though phone seizures are a common investigative technique, the circumstances surrounding this particular seizure—a federal inquiry involving a former president and his advisors—are undoubtedly out of the ordinary.

On Tuesday, comments made by Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis about former President Donald Trump in relation to the violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, caused a social media uproar.

DeSantis asserted that Trump might have responded to the disturbance more “forcefully” during a press conference in South Carolina. DeSantis responded to Trump’s admission that he got a letter from Special Counsel Jack Smith informing him that he is the subject of a grand jury investigation into the events of January 6. DeSantis is challenging Trump and other GOP candidates for the Republican nomination for president.

“Deranged Jack Smith, the prosecutor with Joe Biden’s DOJ, sent a letter (again, it was Sunday night!) stating that I am a TARGET of the January 6th Grand Jury investigation, giving me a very short 4 days to report to the Grand Jury, which almost always means an Arrest and Indictment,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.

DeSantis advocated against prosecuting Trump for his actions despite suggesting that he ought to have acted more that day.

“So look, there’s a difference between being brought up on criminal charges and doing things like, for example, I think it was shown how he was in the White House and didn’t do anything while, while things were going on. He should have come out more forcefully, of course, that. But to try to criminalize that, that’s a different issue entirely, and I think that we want to be in a situation where, you know, you don’t have one side just constantly trying to put the other side in jail. And that unfortunately is what we’re seeing now,” DeSantis argued.
