Former President Donald Trump has arrived at the federal court in Washington DC to face charges over involvement in the January 6th Capitol riots.
Mr Trump will be arraigned at the court appearance in Washington, where prosecutors are set to allege that he led a conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
The former president travelled from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey where he is expected to have the charges read to him and be asked how he will plead in the case.
Following this, it is expected Mr Trump will be released pending further proceedings.
Mr Trump has pleaded not guilty to previous charges, and it is expected he will do the same this evening.
This is the second legal proceeding for Mr Trump this week – on Tuesday, a grand jury indicted the former president on four counts: conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding; obstruction of and attempting to obstruct an official proceeding; and conspiracy against rights.
Mr Trump is scheduled to go on trial in March over allegations of falsifying business records in New York concerning hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels, a porn star, in the lead-up to the 2016 election.
In May 2024, the former president will face federal prosecution in Florida over classified documents which he took from the White House after leaving office in 2021.
The indictments and any potential conviction would not disqualify Mr Trump from serving as president under the US Constitution.
