Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner has said that former President Donald Trump’s latest social media post may have provided prosecutors with an admission of guilt for two separate crimes.
Kirschner, who analyzed the latest of Trump’s posts on Truth Social, has said that the former President’s comments show that he might have committed two federal felonies. These include theft of government documents and obstruction of justice.
In a video he posted to Youtube on Tuesday Kirschner said that while there has not been an indictment yet that was most likely going to be changing soon.
Earlier this month it was announced that Jack Smith would be brought on to act as special counsel in the two Trump cases that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is currently investigating. The first probe relates to the documents seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, many of which had varying degrees of classification, while the second one relates to the role that Trump played in the incidents that unfolded on January 6th, 2021, and the Capitol riot.
On Monday, Trump posted on Social Media a rhetorical question asking when the DOJ would be searching the Clinton household in order to find the 33,000 emails that she deleted. The second question asked generally when other President’s homes would be invaded in order for documents to be found.
Kirschner noted that indirectly these two posts could be used as incriminating evidence against Trump. As he has made indirect comments about taking documents that he should not have and potentially obstructing justice.
