Former President Donald Trump has reached a rather tumultuous moment in his political career, and just weeks away from what many see as an inevitable return to the campaign trail.
The moment that Trump left office, a vast number of legal and political entities began targeting him, hoping to prevent the former President from running for and attaining the office again. Of these attacks, perhaps the most salient is the DOJ’s investigation into his handling of government documents at Mar-a-Lago, and what some have suggested are attempts to obstruct the return of those files to the National Archives.
Now, as The Don heads to Washington DC for an unannounced visit, some are speculating that an arrest may be imminent.
Donald Trump made a surprise and unannounced visit to Washington D.C. on Sunday, prompting speculation and rumors about the reason for his trip.
A video of Trump arriving at Dulles Airport in Virginia, an airport frequently used by those heading to the capital, was posted online by freelance reporter Andrew Leyden.
The former president can be seen getting out of a plane and heading into a vehicle waiting on the asphalt. Trump appears to be wearing golf shoes and a white polo top.
As with anything related to Trump, wild theories abound.
The surprise visit has resulted in a range of theories being shared online. Some have suggested that Trump may be in D.C. because he is due to be arrested by the Department of Justice, or that he may be visiting the Walter Reed hospital for health reasons.
Trump potentially faces a number of indictments in connection with the January 6 attack and his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. He is also facing an FBI investigation into claims he mishandled classified documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago resort, and then allegedly attempted to obstruct the inquiry.
Many have suggested that Trump being dressed in golf attire suggests the visit was not planned, or needed to be taken at a moment’s notice.
Others noted that Trump may be in the capital to attend a speech due to be given by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, at an event hosted by the America First Policy Institute and the Abraham Accords Peace Institute on Monday.
At least one former lawyer for Donald Trump believes that there is an indictment imminent for the ex-President, but no pubic record of any charges being pressed has emerged as of this writing.
