Subpoenas Also Include Trump Attorney

  • A federal judge on Friday ordered Evan Corcoran, an attorney for former President Donald Trump, to testify before a grand jury related to his client’s handling of classified materials.
  • District Judge Beryl Howell’s ruling is the latest development in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation of Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified materials, CNN reported. Corcoran has previously testified before the grand jury, but cited attorney-client privilege when refusing to answer some questions.
  • Howell sided with the Department of Justice, which had argued Corcoran must answer the questions given his conversations with the former president may have been part of an attempt to plan a crime.
