According to an NBC News report citing “three sources familiar with the matter,” that attorney, Christina Bobb, a onetime talking head on the right-wing network One America News Network, “named two other Trump attorneys involved with the case” during a recent talk with the U.S. Department of Justice.
As Law&Crime previously reported, Bobb signed a letter in June of this year averring that Trump had returned all documents subject to a May grand jury subpoena. That letter claimed the former president no longer had any documents identified as classified at his Florida estate. The statement Bobb signed, however, was allegedly authored by Trump attorney Evan Corcoran, according to The New York Times.
A late August report by CNN citing anonymous sources alleges that Bobb’s name appears in a DOJ court filing – albeit in redacted form. That filing contains a copy of the letter in question. The letter claims that a “diligent search” was undertaken by Trump’s legal team to ensure subpoena compliance.
According to NBC News’ report, Bobb told DOJ attorneys that Corcoran “drafted it and told her to sign it,” citing the anonymous sources.
The added language insisted upon by Bobb and referred to by the Times was reportedly a clarification that she would only certify Trump no longer had marked-as-classified records in his possession “based upon the information that has been provided to me.” Such information, Bobb allegedly told the feds, came from Corcoran.
