Trump Prosecutors Probe

In the unfolding drama surrounding the classified documents case against Donald Trump, the stage was set for another riveting scene.

On Wednesday, a request landed on the desk of a Florida federal judge.

The subject? To hold a special hearing – all to dissect the complex web of representation entangling the key players in the case.

Special Counsel Jack Smith, spearheading the charge against Trump, cited a 1975 precedent, U.S. v. Garcia, aiming to untangle potential “divided loyalties” involving John Irving.

This attorney, hailing from the esteemed D.C. firm Earth & Water Law, is in the spotlight for representing not just Carlos De Oliveira, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property manager but also three potential government witnesses.
