Trump attorneys meet with DOJ ahead of grand jury convening over Mar-a-Lago seized docs case

The grand jury selected to judge how Trump handled classified documents is anticipated to convene once again this week.

Lawyers representing former President Donald Trump spoke with representatives of the Justice Department on Monday morning. This is the same week when the grand jury selected to judge how Trump handled classified documents is anticipated to convene once again.

NBC News reported that three of Trump’s lawyers - James Trusty, John Rowley, and Lindsey Halligan - were seen at the Justice Department’s headquarters and met with department officials that did not include Attorney General Merrick Garland or Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco.

Just after the meeting ended, Trump posted on Truth Social, "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!"

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was raided by the FBI in August of last year. The former president has repeatedly maintained that he did nothing wrong and that the probe into him is part of a move designed to take him down. He soon thereafter reacted by initiating a lawsuit against the Biden-run federal government at the time, alleging in the US District Court in the Southern District of Florida that the treatment he has received is in violation of the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

This news of the meeting comes after Trump attorneys John Rowley and James Trusty, both of whom were present for the DOJ meeting, penned a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland last month to ask for a meeting regarding the "ongoing injustice" of a probe opened by special counsel Jack Smith, who was tapped by the attorney general to specifically focus on investigating crimes that were allegedly committed by the former president.
