Ongoing criminal investigations, including the FBI’s search for Trump.

While not directly applicable to forex, the news of a judge granting a search warrant to the FBI given probably cause of criminal behaviour is attracting a lot of interest. Given Trump’s close links to Putin and other nefarious actors, his attempts at a coup, his leading of a violent cop-killing insurrection, and other activites, there could be more to this than meets the eye. I guess we’ll find out in time.

Reuters have a recap up of all the legal investigations into former President Trump. Allegations include:

  • boxes of White House documents from Trump’s Florida home, some of which contained classified materials
  • trying to overturn his 2020 election defeat
  • obstruct any official proceeding
  • raised some $250 million from supporters to advance fraudulent claims in court that he won the election, but steered much of the money elsewhere
  • efforts to influence the Georgia’s 2020 election results

The list goes on, Reuters link is here for more.
