The DOJ’s fishing expedition into Trump is expanding.
They are now subpoeaning at least two dozen people at Mar-a-lago, from staffers to members of Trump’s inner circle.
This all according to CNN, who broke the story a few minutes ago:
At least two dozen people – from Mar-a-Lago resort staff to members of Donald Trump’s inner circle at the Florida estate – have been subpoenaed to testify to a federal grand jury that’s investigating the former president’s handling of classified documents, multiple sources familiar with the investigation told CNN.
On Thursday, Trump’s communications aide Margo Martin, who worked in the White House and then moved with Trump to Florida, appeared before the grand jury in Washington, DC. One of special counsel Jack Smith’s senior-most prosecutors was involved in the interview.
Martin, who is among a small group of former White House advisers who have remained employed by Trump after he left office, declined to answer any questions when approached by a CNN reporter.
Smith has sought testimony from a range of people close to Trump – from his own attorneys who represent him in the matter to staffers who work on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago, including a housekeeper and restaurant servers, sources said.
The staffers are of interest to investigators because of what they may have seen or heard while on their daily duties around the estate, including whether they saw boxes or documents in Trump’s office suite or elsewhere.
“They’re casting an extremely wide net – anyone and everyone who might have seen something,” said one source familiar with the Justice Department’s efforts.
Has any president every been investigated like Trump? He was investigated from before he came into office by the DOJ and they are still trying to find something that will stick against him. Now they resort to seeing what they can find out among the people who staff Trump’s very home.
Well, they searched his and his wive’s underwear drawers. I guess nothing is off limits in the pursuit of destroying him.
It’s all very despicable. The law enforcement side of the federal government has become so contemptible that I don’t know how they will ever win back the public’s trust. Or if the even care.
