Special Counsel Jack Smith has revealed in a recent court filing that the DC grand jury in the classified documents case against former President Donald Trump has ended, after the judge challenged the special counsel over his use of an out-of-state grand jury.
Special counsel Jack Smith pushed back against former President Donald Trump's request that trial begin in April 2026, saying "the defendant cites inapposite statistics and cases, overstates the amount of new and non-duplicative discovery, and exaggerates the challenge of reviewing it effectively."
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon ordered a sealed hearing on a request for a protective order under the Classified Information Protection Act (CIPA) in a case the DOJ brought in Florida against former President Donald Trump.
Former President Donald Trump on Friday pleaded not guilty to three new felony charges brought by special counsel Jack Smith in a superseding indictment in a case that accuses the former president of mishandling classified documents.
The indictment alleges that Trump asked for the footage to be deleted after federal investigators visited the property in June 2022 to collect classified documents that he took with him after leaving the White House a year earlier.
