A US federal jury is reportedly seeking information about the Political Action Committee (PAC) of Donald Trump’s Save America leadership as investigations into the former American president continue to mount.

ABC News reported that subpoenas issued in recent weeks have asked recipients about the PAC’s formation, fundraising activities and expenses.

Mr Trump is now the subject of numerous ongoing federal and state investigations, including several implicated in his role in the attack on the US Capitol building from 6 documents with top secret markings – ended up at his private Mar-a-Lago club.

The former president aggressively fundraised after the 2020 election, capitalizing on his supporters’ anger at his loss to Joe Biden and their refusal to accept it.

During its hearings, the US House of Representatives committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack said Trump’s fundraising machine had raised around $250 million (£217 million) from his campaigns for Stop the Steal and others after the election, mostly in small amounts -dollar donations from Americans.

A plea for cash was issued 30 minutes before the Jan. 6 riot that saw shameful and violent scenes at the Capitol as supporters of the ousted president attempted to storm the building.

Earlier, Mr Trump had insisted he was stripped of the White House role and the election rigged, which returned a “wrong” result.

“Not only was there the big lie, there was the big rip-off,” said representative Zoe Lofgren of the effort.

No credible evidence has surfaced to support Mr Trump’s claims that the election was marred by mass fraud.

Numerous state and local election officials, including Trump’s own attorney general and judges appointed by him, have also denied such claims.
