Trump’s lawyers dropped the case with the classified documents he hid at his home

They resigned Lawyers of Donald Trump from the case in which he is accused of illegally keeping classified documents from his time as president of the United States.

The Wall Street Journal writes that a former associate of Trump, his former military aide, Wall Nouta, was also referred. Nowta worked at the White House and followed Trump to the Mar-al-Lago. He reportedly helped transport the cardboard boxes containing documents and other memorabilia from Trump’s time as president. According to US media, he had initially told authorities that he did not know whether Trump had kept classified documents but later admitted that he was transporting some boxes.

“It was our honor”

The surprise announcement of the lawyers’ resignation John Rowley and Jim Trusty could mean further legal complications ahead of Trump’s appearance in federal court in Miami next Tuesday.

“This morning we submitted our resignations to President Trump,” they said in a statement. “It has been our honor to spend the last year defending him and we know he will be vindicated,” they added.

Trump announced via social networking sites that Todd Blanch, an attorney specializing in financial law, is representing him.

It is the first time in American history that a former president has been impeached at the federal level. The case, however, does not prevent him from continuing his election campaign, nor from assuming the presidency if he wins the November 2024 election. According to experts, there is no legal basis for him not to be sworn in as president, even if he is sentenced to prison.
