Trump Attorney Hires Lawyer, Moves To Cooperate With DOJ In Mar-a-Lago Probe

Donald Trump attorney Christina Bobb has reportedly hired her own lawyer and has vowed to cooperate with the Department of Justice in the ongoing investigation into the former president’s hoarding of classified documents.

Bobb and fellow attorney Evan Corcoran signed a document affirming that Trump had handed over all classified records from his Mar-a-Lago residence in response to a May subpoena after a “diligent search.” But prosecutors said their response was inaccurate after the FBI searched and found more documents at Mar-a-Lago and cited evidence of “obstructive conduct” in response to the subpoena.

Bobb has since hired her own lawyer, Florida-based former prosecutor John Lauro, and “made it known to Trump allies that she is willing to cooperate and be interviewed by the Justice Department,” according to The Washington Post. Colleagues have similarly urged Corcoran to hire a criminal defense lawyer because of his response to the subpoena.

Asked if she was negotiating to sit for an interview with the DOJ, Bobb said: “I’m sorry, I’m not allowed to talk about it,” according to The Post.

Bobb, a former OAN host who helped promote Trump’s big lie about the 2020 election results, has insisted that she believes the document she signed was accurate, according to the Post.

But she also told the pro-Trump Right Side Broadcasting Network that she was not acting as Trump’s attorney while serving as a custodian of records when responding to the subpoena, which means the Justice Department could compel her testimony more easily than if she were acting as Trump’s lawyer at the time.

“I think people were a little bit confused,” Bobb said. “I am on President Trump’s legal team. I do work for him on election issues. I was never on the legal team handling this case, just to be clear on that. Which is why I came in as the custodian of records — because I wasn’t on that team,” she added, according to the report.
