Trump’s Lawyers Finally Meet with DOJ and He Cuts Loose on Truth Social – Watch
Attorneys for former President Donald Trump met with top Justice Department officials for just under two hours on Monday. The meeting was reportedly requested by Trump’s lawyers, who have been critical of the department’s handling of investigations into the former president. Attorneys John Rowley, James Trusty, and Lindsey Halligan were seen entering DOJ headquarters on Monday around 10 a.m., Attorney General Merrick Garland was not part of the meeting, according to reports.
The meeting took place at the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. Trump’s attorneys were John Rowley, James Trusty, and Lindsey Halligan. The DOJ officials who met with them included Attorney General Merrick Garland, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
The purpose of the meeting was not immediately clear. However, Trump’s lawyers have been critical of the DOJ’s handling of investigations into the former president. In particular, they have accused the department of leaking information to the media and of conducting a “witch hunt” against Trump.
Trump himself responded to the meeting on social media: “HOW CAN DOJ POSSIBLY CHARGE ME, WHO DID NOTHING WRONG, WHEN NO OTHER PRESIDENT’S WERE CHARGED, WHEN JOE BIDEN WON’T BE CHARGED FOR ANYTHING, INCLUDING THE FACT THAT HE HAS 1,850 BOXES, MUCH OF IT CLASSIFIED, AND SOME DATING BACK TO HIS SENATE DAY WHEN EVEN DEMOCRAT SENATORS ARE SHOCKED. ALSO, PRESIDENT CLINTON HAD DOCUMENTS, AND WON IN COURT. CROOKED HILLARY DELETED 33,000 EMAILS, MANY CLASSIFIED, AND WASN’T EVEN CLOSE TO BEING CHARGED! ONLY TRUMP – THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME!”
The meeting between Trump’s attorneys and the DOJ officials is the latest development in the ongoing investigations into the former president. It remains to be seen what, if anything, will come of the meeting. However, it is clear that Trump and his lawyers are not happy with the way the DOJ has handled the investigations.
Trump lawyers Jim Trusty, John Rowley and Lindsay Halligan leave the Justice Department after spending nearly two hours in a meeting with law enforcement officials. AG Garland was NOT part of the meeting, per @KenDilanianNBC
