Donald Trump announced that he will run for president in 2024 earlier this week

He appointed an independent attorney to serve as a special prosecutor to oversee the US Department of Justice’s criminal investigations into former President Donald Trump.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced at a press conference that Jack Smith, a former war crimes prosecutor, has been appointed as a special counsel to oversee these investigations.

Smith will lead investigations into how Trump handled classified documents, and his alleged role in the Capitol riot.

Trump, who has been the subject of several other investigations, has denied any wrongdoing.
