President Trump updated his supporters on matters surrounding a potential third indictment, verifying that lawyers of his met with Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team on Thursday.
Trump himself confirmed that his attorneys “had a productive meeting” with Justice Department officials amid their third potential indictment of the 45th president, maintaining that he “did nothing wrong.”
“My attorneys had a productive meeting with the DOJ this morning, explaining in detail that I did nothing wrong, was advised by many lawyers, and that an Indictment of me would only further destroy our Country,” Trump wrote to his Truth Social account on Thursday.
Trump also added that “No indication of notice was given” by the Justice Department to his attorneys during the meeting regarding his pending indictment.
“No indication of notice was given during the meeting — Do not trust the Fake News on anything!” he wrote.
Two Trump attorneys, John Lauro and Todd Blanche, allegedly met with Jack Smith’s team following the 45th president’s receipt of a target letter last week informing him of a potential third indictment, according to ABC News.
ABC reported that Jack Smith was present at the meeting, which lasted one hour.
Smith also indicted Trump in June over his alleged mishandling of classified documents, of which the 45th president had pleaded “not guilty” in a federal courthouse.
Smith, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to begin a series of investigations into President Trump, has most recently pursued the 45th president over actions of his from Jan. 6, 2021, and whether he encouraged people to enter the Capitol Building during the certification of the 2020 election.
Following his receipt of the target letter, Trump stated that he was the target of a probe from a grand jury, as previously reported by RSBN.
A Washington, D.C. grand jury had also reportedly met on Thursday to review evidence of the investigation, according to a report from The Hill.
RSBN will continue to provide updates regarding this ongoing story.
