At least two dozen employees of the Mar-a-Lago resort were reportedly given subpoenas as part of the government’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s mishandling of classified materials.
Special Counsel Jack Smith demands testimony from restaurant servers, a housekeeper and other workers on Trump’s grounds in Palm Beach, Florida, real estate, CNN reported Thursday.
Investigators are said to be interested in what employees at Trump’s private club and residence may have seen while working on the property.
“They’re casting a very wide net — anyone and everyone who might have seen something,” an unnamed source familiar with the investigation told the news agency.
The outlet reported that federal investigators have already spoken with a Mar-a-Lago employee who is seen in security camera footage helping Trump aide Walt Nota move boxes from the property’s storage room.
Several employees have been called to testify before a federal grand jury investigating Trump through a lawyer whose fees are paid by Trump entities, according to CNN.
On Thursday, Trump’s communications aide Margot Martin, who moved to Florida after working with the former president in the White House, reportedly appeared before a grand jury in Washington, DC.
Three of Trump’s attorneys also appeared before the committee recently — Alina Heba, Christina Pope and Evan Corcoran — and investigators are keen to bring Corcoran back to the grand jury after he reportedly refused to answer questions during his first appearance.
Two private contractors with security clearances Trump hired to search his properties for sensitive records also testified before the grand jury.
Smith’s team is investigating Trump for obstruction and criminal violations of the Presidential Records Act.
Smith was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland in November after Trump announced the launch of his 2024 presidential campaign and in the wake of FBI agents recovering more than 100 classified documents during a raid on Mar-a-Lago last summer.
