In a succinct one-page letter signed by Trump lawyers John Rowley and James Trusty, they request a meeting with Attorney General Merrick Garland to discuss what they perceive as an “ongoing injustice” committed by special counsel Jack Smith.

Trump’s Legal Team Strives for Resolution amid Allegations of Obstruction

Negotiations between Trump’s legal team and the government have been ongoing for over a year, but trust has significantly eroded, leading to a breakdown in communication. The government issued subpoenas for documents in May 2022 and conducted a search at Mar-a-Lago last August. Since then, a heated battle has unfolded over compliance with grand jury subpoenas, as the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Trump’s lawyers clash over allegations of obstruction.

Search of Mar-a-Lago Amps Up the Stakes in the Investigation

The DOJ’s investigation took a crucial turn when FBI agents conducted a search at Mar-a-Lago. They seized over 100 documents labeled as classified, as well as numerous empty folders with classified markings. This search exposed potential mishandling of classified materials, intensifying the investigation and raising questions about Trump’s awareness and retention of such documents.

Requested records include handwritten notes, invoices, and transcriptions of personal audio recordings.

Infighting and Accusations Surface Within Trump’s Legal Team

However, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign denies these allegations, categorically dismissing them as false.
