From the start, something has seemed off with Donald Trump’s social network “Truth Social.” It’s been a miserable failure, and didn’t appear to have been set up with any real chance of succeeding to begin with, even as questionable financial moves took place behind the scenes.
Now it turns out the Department of Justice sees it the same way. A federal grand jury has subpoenaed the leaders of Digital World Acquisition Corp, a company that is planning to buy out Truth Social, according to Reuters. It turns out the DOJ has actually been investigating the deal since late last year, and has now reached the grand jury subpoena stage.
This represents yet another active DOJ investigation into Donald Trump. Months ago, multiple major newspapers reported that the DOJ has had a January 6th grand jury targeting Trump world for at least five months; that probe has advanced to the point where warrants were recently carried out against Trump henchmen Jeffrey Clark and John Eastman. The DOJ also previously informed Congress in a letter that it’s been investigating Trump’s decision to take classified documents with him when he left office.
