LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Prosecutors with the Department of Justice informed former President Donald Trump’s legal team Wednesday that he is the target of a federal investigation over his handling of classified documents after he left office.
Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and current Republican presidential candidate, reacts to Trump being the target of a federal investigation.
Hutchinson said, "The GOP should clarify that there is no pledge to support a nominee if they are found guilty of espionage or a serious felony. Donald Trump is the target of an ongoing criminal investigation and he should step aside & put the good of the country above his candidacy."
According to the Associated Press, "The RNC also detailed the criteria that will be used for candidates to qualify for the debate stage, including a pledge to support the eventual Republican presidential nominee. That requirement could keep some candidates off the stage, including former President Donald Trump, who hasn’t committed to supporting the nominee if he doesn’t emerge from the primary. Trump also has questioned why he would participate since he holds a commanding lead in GOP primary polls."
This is a developing story.
