Former President Donald Trump's lawyers appear to be preparing for a potential indictment in connection with the Department of Justice (DOJ) probe into classified documents allegedly stored at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago on August 8, 2022, seizing 20 boxes containing classified documents. The DOJ is investigating whether the documents were being improperly stored at Trump's Florida home. The investigation has led to security concerns, but Trump has maintained that he did nothing wrong, claiming that the investigation is part of a witch hunt against him.


Trump's attorneys, in a letter Monday night, acknowledged that they are preparing for a potential indictment related to the case.

His lawyers wrote to oppose a request from Judge Raymond Dearie, the special master appointed to oversee the DOJ's review of the seized documents, for both parties to submit their own proposed agenda, while also providing them with his draft plan.
