Trump’s team sent a letter to the House Intelligence Committee asking for “formalization of investigative procedures” into the unauthorized possession of classified documents. Trump is targeted by such an investigation, after classified documents from the presidential term were discovered in his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida.
Trump’s lawyers are asking the House of Representatives to find a “legislative solution” so that investigations of this type are civil, not criminal, according to The Hill publication. “The Department of Justice should withdraw and the intelligence community should conduct a proper investigation and provide a report to the House Intelligence Committee and its Senate counterparts,” said a letter that Donald Trump’s lawyers – Timothy Parlatore , John Rowley, Jim Trusty and Lindsey Halligan – sent it to the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Mike Turner.
“A legislative solution by Congress is needed to prevent the Department of Justice from continuing criminal investigations in cases that are not criminal,” Trump’s legal team emphasizes.
Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) collected documents from Donald Trump’s residence in Mar-a-Lago (Florida) in August 2022, and the case is being investigated by a special prosecutor, Jack Smith. Authorities say they were classified documents, but Trump says the documents were declassified by him while he was president.
In another case, Justice Secretary Merrick Garland announced the appointment of a special prosecutor, Robert Hur, to investigate the case of classified documents found in a former university office of President Joseph Biden in Washington DC and at his residence in Wilmington, Delaware . The documents date from the time when Biden was vice president, during the mandate of President Barack Obama.
