( – Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative Jim Jordan, who is a Republican from Ohio, has made a formal request to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for specific information regarding the progress of the investigation led by Special Counsel Jack Smith into former President Donald Trump. This request signifies that the investigation may be reaching its conclusion.

Recently, Representative Jordan sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, in which he sought access to the memorandum that officially appointed Special Counsel Smith and outlined his investigative responsibilities. He specifically requested an unredacted copy of the memorandum, which delineates the scope of the investigation and specifies Smith’s appointment date as November 18, 2022. Additionally, he expressed his desire to obtain any other relevant documents that provide information about the authority and jurisdiction granted to Special Counsel Smith for this particular investigation.

This letter was sent the day after news broke that former President Trump’s legal team had met with federal prosecutors on Monday. Furthermore, President Trump himself publicly acknowledged this meeting.

In a separate report by NBC News over the weekend, it was revealed that Special Counsel Smith had reconvened a grand jury in Florida to examine evidence related to the Mar-a-Lago case.

Additionally, according to a CNN report, prosecutors are investigating whether the intentional draining of a pool, which resulted in the flooding of a room at Mar-a-Lago containing computer servers with surveillance footage data, was an intentional act.

In a press conference held last November, Attorney General Garland provided details about the scope of Special Counsel Smith’s appointment. He stated that the special counsel would be overseeing two cases: one related to potential unlawful interference with the transfer of power after the 2020 presidential election and the certification of the election results on January 6, 2021; and another focused on the examination of classified and sensitive records and any potential instances of obstruction during previous investigations.

Trump was indicted in the classified documents case on June 8. At the time of this report, there is still plenty left to uncover moving forward.
