Mar-a-Lago workers summoned to testify | The USA Print

Tens of Mar-a-Lago workersthe residence of the former president donald trump (2017-2021) in Florida, have been called to testify in the investigation into the handling of classified documents by the Republican.

At least 20 workers at the former president’s residence and private club were summoned by the office of special prosecutor Jack Smith, US media reported Thursday.

As part of the investigation, the fiscal is seeking the testimony of people from the president’s close circle, so that they give first-hand information about the residence where the fbi found dozens of classified documents, CNN reported.

In November, the US Attorney General, Merrick Garland, announced the appointment of Smith to investigate both the handling of documents by the former president, who has already announced his intention to be reelected in 2024, and his role in the assault on the Capitol. .

The investigations into the assault on January 6, 2021 will focus, according to Garland, on finding out if there were one or more people who “interfered in the transfer of power” and in the process of ratifying Biden as president in Congress, after winning the 2020 elections against Trump.

As for Mar-a-Lago, the head of the Department of Justice pointed out that the handling of the classified documents that were found there by the FBI must be investigated and find out if there was obstruction of Justice during that investigation.

Both Mike Pence and the current president of the United States, Joe Biden, have acknowledged finding classified documents in their respective residences, although both have made themselves available to the authorities to cooperate with any possible investigation, unlike Trump.
