A federal judge has summoned Trump’s attorney, Evan Corcoran, to testify before a grand jury regarding state “confidential documents” seized from the Mar-a-Lago estate, American media reported.
It is stated that Corcoran was summoned within the framework of the failure to apply the principle of attorney-client privilege, based on situations where attorneys “know that their clients intend to commit a crime”.
The “secret documents” and “January 6th Congressional raid” investigations against Trump are chaired by former attorney general Jack Smith, who was appointed as a special commissioned expert.
Trump’s home in Florida was raided by FBI agents on the morning of August 8, 2022, to investigate “confidential documents”.
While Trump described the ongoing investigations against him as “political”, he specifically requested that documents taken from Mar-a-Lago be reviewed by an “independent arbitrator or special judge”.
While the investigations against him were continuing, Trump announced on the night of November 15 that he was running again for the 2024 presidential election at his Mar-a-Lago mansion.
