WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawyers for Donald Trump have met with members of special counsel Jack Smith’s team ahead of a potential indictment over the former president’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
That’s according to a person familiar with the matter, who said the Thursday meeting included Trump lawyer John Lauro.
Trump himself has confirmed the meeting in a post on his Truth Social network.
Trump earlier this month was informed by Smith’s office that he was a target of the Justice Department’s investigation, suggesting an indictment could come soon.
The investigation has focused on the turbulent two-month period after Trump lost the November 2020 election.
A spokesman for Smith declined to comment.
