Trump news today: Ex-president’s first statement since accountant cut


Stormy Daniels obliquely denies having written statement on Trump affair

Former president Donald Trump has issued his first statement since his accounting firm Mazars USA cut ties.

The former president’s longtime accounting firm dropped him as a client, writing in a court filing that a decade’s worth of Donald Trump’s financial statements could no longer be relied upon.

On Wednesday Mr Trump said: “We have a great company with fantastic assets that are unique, extremely valuable and, in many cases, far more valuable than what was listed in our Financial Statements.”

He added that Mazars has cut ties with him due to “vicious intimidation tactics” by the New York Attorney General and the District Attorney.

The president’s company papers are at the centre of a New York investigation into his affairs, one he has decried as a political witch hunt.

Meanwhile a US congressional committee is preparing to investigate Donald Trump’s handling of administration documents after 15 boxes of records were transferred from his Mar-a-Lago residence.


What will happen to Trump’s “fake electors”?

Developments continue in the slow-burning story of the pro-Trump “electors” from various swing states who submitted official-looking but false documents claiming Mr Trump had been re-elected.

As just one strand of the effort to overturn Joe Biden’s victory, the apparently co-ordinated effort to disrupt the Electoral College process is under investigation by the 6 January select committee – and speaking on MSNBC last night, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner explained that the individuals who put their names to the plan (among them several elected Republican officials) could well be facing criminal charges.

The Truth will out

The launch of Donald Trump’s long-awaited social network, Truth Social, is apparently drawing near despite reports of delays. As Trump fans prepare for the arrival of the app’s beta version, Donald Trump Jr has shared what purports to be his father’s first post on the new platform:

Other, more complete screenshots circulating among Trump fans show an interface that’s more or less a direct clone of Twitter, from which the former president was banned after the 6 January Capitol attack. The provenance of the images, however, is not entirely clear.

Truth Social will compete with other conservative-friendly platforms like Gab and Gettr, the latter of which has former Trump aide Jason Miller as its CEO. Its early publicity has made much of its supposedly anti-censorship, free speech-first philosophy; however, it will also reportedly use third-party artificial intelligence software to filter out undesirable posts.
