As if Trump didn't have enough shit against him, there's this:

According to the reporting, special counsel Jack Smith and federal prosecutors are closely scrutinizing the former president’s political action committee, Save America PAC, examining whether the operation might have violated federal wire fraud statutes.​

Team Trump raised $250 million by asking donors to finance a scheme to overturn the election results, even though the former president and his aides knew he lost fair and square. The underlying question is relatively straightforward: Was the grift legal?​

Complicating matters, of course, is the problem of how the Republican used the money he collected from those who believed his lies: The Jan. 6 committee last year documented the fact that while Trump’s operation told prospective donors that their contributions would finance the anti-election effort, little of the money actually went to the stated cause. Indeed, Save America PAC hyped an “Official Election Defense Fund” that didn’t exist in reality.​

So, yeah. Wire fraud. A quarter of a billion dollars worth.
