Trump lawyers John Rowley, James Trusty, and Lindsey Halligan were seen meeting with Department of Justice (DOJ) officials regarding the Mar-a-Lago document case.
Trump took to TruthSocial to share his sentiments on the matter:“HOW CAN DOJ POSSIBLY CHARGE ME, WHO DID NOTHING WRONG, WHEN NO OTHER PRESIDENT’S WERE CHARGED, WHEN JOE BIDEN WON’T BE CHARGED FOR ANYTHING, INCLUDING THE FACT THAT HE HAS 1,850 BOXES, MUCH OF IT CLASSIFIED, AND SOME DATING BACK TO HIS SENATE DAY WHEN EVEN DEMOCRAT SENATORS ARE SHOCKED.”
“ALSO, PRESIDENT CLINTON HAD DOCUMENTS, AND WON IN COURT. CROOKED HILLARY DELETED 33,000 EMAILS, MANY CLASSIFIED, AND WASN’T EVEN CLOSE TO BEING CHARGED! ONLY TRUMP – THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME!”
A decision on whether or not Trump will be charged with crimes related to the documents is said to be imminent.
Reporting from RedState:
Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled that Trump’s attorney, Evan Corcoran, must provide testimony before a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., as part of an investigation into the former president’s retention of documents containing classified markings. Corcoran had previously declined to answer investigators’ questions regarding his conversations with Trump, citing attorney-client privilege. The special counsel’s office sought to question Corcoran about an alleged call with Trump on June 24, 2022, which coincided with investigators’ efforts to obtain documents from Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago and video surveillance tapes of the Florida estate. The special counsel team led by Jack Smith, appointed by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland last November, made a request to D.C. District Chief Judge Beryl Howell, asking her to reject Evan Corcoran’s claims of attorney-client privilege and compel him to testify against his client, Donald Trump. They argued that the attorney-client communications in question may have been used to facilitate criminal activity. In response, Judge Howell issued a secret order that partially granted the request. She ruled that the “crime-fraud exception” would be applied to Corcoran’s testimony but only on a specific set of questions, according to sources familiar with the matter.
