WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump’s town hall with Fox News host Sean Hannity is set to air Tuesday night, an event that has garnered more interest after Trump predicted he would be indicted for the third time and confirmed he was the target of a federal investigation into the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The town hall for the important early voting state of Iowa will be pre-recorded in Cedar Rapids on Tuesday afternoon and broadcast on Tuesday evening.
Trump remains the frontrunner in the 2024 GOP primary, but the letter moment with his town hall, where he will face voters face-to-face and answer their questions, poses a new risk on his path to re-election.

Why is Special Counsel Jack Smith investigating Trump and the Capitol attack?
Trump shared in a statement that he became the target of a federal investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021 riots and said Special Counsel Jack Smith sent him a letter “giving me a very short 4 days to do report to the Grand Jury, which almost always means an arrest and an indictment.
It’s unclear what Trump could potentially be charged with, but former federal prosecutors tell USA TODAY that a target letter is a strong indication that an indictment is imminent. The investigation focuses on whether Trump incited the mob that raped the Capitol on January 6, 2021 and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in several key battleground states.
Smith already made the decision to indict Trump federally in June for his alleged mishandling of classified documents.
