Donald Trump role & 2020 US election challenge investigated by prosecutors



The US Justice department is examining Donald Trump's actions in connection with efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, US media say.
Federal prosecutors have reportedly asked witnesses directly about the behaviour of the former president, but so far they have chosen not to open a formal criminal investigation into Mr Trump himself, who denies any personal wrongdoing.
The news coincides with the former president’s first major speech since leaving office, where he addressed supporters in Washington.
