(TheRedWire.com) – Special Counsel Jack Smith is currently overseeing two separate investigations into former President Donald Trump. One relates to the classified documents found in his Mar-a-Lago estate, while the second one has to do with Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election which led to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.
With the investigations intensifying there are three key figures connected to former President Trump who might be called in for the different roles they have played in the two cases.
Alex Cannon, Christina Bobb, and Kash Patel each played their own distinct role in each of the cases, but all three have been called in by the Justice Department in relation to the classified documents case. They had previously been called in by the Special House Committee that had led the investigations into Jan. 6 during the previous Congress.
Cannon, a longtime Trump Organization employee, was first brought in to assess the claims relating to widespread voter fraud. Following that, he moved on to a new role as a liaison for Trump with the National Archives as officials were trying to organize the retrieval of the presidential records.
Bobb is currently serving as Trump’s lawyer in the 2024 presidential campaign. Previously she had assisted Trump in his post-election lawsuits following the 2020 campaign. She has also previously signed a statement that all classified records had been returned to the National Archives and that there were no classified documents in Mar-a-Lago.
Patel was chief of staff to the secretary of Defense during the time when the Pentagon was dealing with the Capitol attack. He was also named by Trump as one of his representatives to the National Archives after Trump left the White House.
By calling these three in Smith might be able to ascertain a lot more information in both of the investigations he is leading.
