2 people who searched Trump properties for classified documents testified before federal grand jury

Source: CNN Politics

CNN ó†Two people who found two classified documents in a Florida storage facility for Donald Trump have testified before a federal grand jury in Washington thatís looking at the former presidentís handling of national security records at his Mar-a-Lago residence, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The two individuals who were hired to search four of Trumpís properties last fall were each interviewed for about three hours in separate appearances last week. They were hired to search Trumpís Bedminster golf club, Trump Tower in New York, an office location in Florida and a storage unit in Florida last October, months after the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.

The extent of information they offered the grand jury remains unclear, though they didnít decline to answer any questions, one of the sources said. The development comes at the same time federal prosecutors are pushing to look at files on a laptop of at least one staff member around Trump at Mar-a-Lago, according to multiple sources.

At times, the special counselís office has been unwilling to negotiate with defense attorneys over recent subpoenas, leading to tense conversations. By pushing for access to computers, investigators are trying to determine if there is an electronic paper trail regarding the classified documents, another source said.

CNN ó†Two people who found two classified documents in a Florida storage facility for Donald Trump have testified before a federal grand jury in Washington thatís looking at the former presidentís handling of national security records at his Mar-a-Lago residence, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The two individuals who were hired to search four of Trumpís properties last fall were each interviewed for about three hours in separate appearances last week. They were hired to search Trumpís properties last October, months after the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago. The extent of information they offered the grand jury remains unclear, though they didnít decline to answer any questions, one of the sources said.

The development comes at the same time federal prosecutors are pushing to look at files on a laptop of at least one staff member around Trump at Mar-a-Lago, according to multiple sources. At times, the special counselís office has been unwilling to negotiate with defense attorneys over recent subpoenas, leading to tense conversations. By pushing for access to computers, investigators are trying to determine if there is an electronic paper trail regarding the classified documents, another source said.

Taken together, the investigative moves underscore that there is continued grand jury activity in the Mar-a-Lago documents case, at a time when the Justice Department has newer inquiries into unsecured national security records underway involving President Joe Biden and former Vice President Mike Pence. The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN, as did an attorney for Trump.

2. Seriously, that's your response? You always claim 'nothing is happenIng' when clearly this

Blocking.

20. Well that is what the OP is about

Of course I should have realized that when you so boldly declared the post was about the NY investigation.
So you are just posting inflammatory posts that have nothing to do with the OP? I think thereís a word for that.
Of course you are also posting endless questions asking for answers. Thereís a name for that too.

Itís more of an admission of a lack of an argument.

28. Hello! N.J. Golf Course, Trump Tower in NYC, a FL office, and FL storage unit.

"They were hired to search Trumpís Bedminster golf club, Trump Tower in New York, an office location in Florida and a
storage unit in Florida last October, months after the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago."

They could not have gotten the needed search warrants to search those properties unless they could show a judge
evidence of crimes or the covering up of crimes going on @ those properties. They got Donny by his balls.

One more place to look:
