Sources told Donald Trump’s defense attorneys, including special counsel Jack Smith, met in WashingtonD.C. on Thursday, but no guidance was given to the former chairman’s platoon regarding the implicit charges during the meeting.
This meeting took place on the same day that Trump and his abettors were seen in civil court, attesting about sweats to capsize the election. A court functionary said that there would be no grand jury charge on Thursday.
The grand jury proceedings are nonpublic, and it’s unclear what significance Smith’s meeting holds in relation to the events of Thursday, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
Since entering a letter from Smith before this month, it has been indicated that the purpose of the disquisition is to explore Trump’s expostulations to a meeting with his attorneys and Smith’s platoon because the former chairman believed the disquisition was formerly settled, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
People familiar with the plans said that Trump’s attorneys hoped to delay any possible charge by the grand jury on Thursday when meeting with Smith’s platoon.
Another source familiar with the legal platoon’s thinking told CNN that they also hope to bandy how a implicit charge and execution of a former chairman would work.
“My solicitors had a fruitful meeting with DOJ this morning where it was easily stated that I did nothing wrong,” Trump said on Truth Social. numerous attorneys have advised me that this charge will only serve to destroy our country.”
Trump’s political and legal strategy has been to delay any implicit execution- including any possible chargepost-2024 choices and put the Justice Department in an uncomfortable position where they’re executing a former chairman who’s laboriously campaigning against Biden’s principal 2024 rival, indeed as primary choosers are beginning to weigh in.
