Prosecutors Pursue Inquiry Into Trump's Handling of Classified Material

Source: NYT

Federal prosecutors have begun a grand jury investigation into whether classified White House documents that ended up at former President Donald J. Trumpís Florida home were mishandled, according to two people briefed on the matter.

The intensifying inquiry suggests that the Justice Department is examining the role of Mr. Trump and other officials in his White House in their handling of sensitive materials during the final stages of his administration.

In recent days, the Justice Department has taken a series of steps showing that its investigation has progressed beyond the preliminary stages. Prosecutors issued a subpoena to the National Archives and Records Administration to obtain the boxes of classified documents, according to the two people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

The authorities have also made interview requests to people who worked in the White House in the final days of Mr. Trumpís presidency, according to one of the people.

1. Maybe this is a more clear cut case than others

Mishandling classified materials is defined and tangible. Can't say it's political, rigged, or a judgment call.

7. d. trump

and his entourage of TOP advisors, racists, grifters, con men and women all, seems like Teflon dons. Nothing has stuck so far. I am losing hope here. My small shred is that the DOJ is playing the long game. The open hearings I hope cause pre-election outrage and also because of so far unreleased evidence against the republiKKKan leadership.
