Trump’s Attorneys Meet Special Counsel Jack Smith Amid Mounting Grand Jury Investigations

HeadlineJun 06, 2023

Attorneys representing former President Trump met with special counsel Jack Smith at the Justice Department on Monday. It’s not clear what was discussed, but it’s believed the conversation focused on grand jury investigations around Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, his role in the January 6th insurrection and his mishandling of classified documents. This comes after federal prosecutors issued a subpoena seeking information about Trump’s overseas business dealings during his time in office. Special counsel Jack Smith is focused on the Trump Organization’s real estate licensing and development deals in China, France, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates since 2017. On Monday, the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington reported Trump made over $82 million from his businesses in Ireland and Scotland while serving as president. Meanwhile, NBC News reports prosecutors have convened a separate federal grand jury in Florida to hear evidence in Jack Smith’s investigation into Trump’s mishandling of documents.
