Friday, Christina Bobb, the attorney who signed the letter certifying that all the sensitive records in President Donald Trump’s possession, spoke to federal investigators. When Bobb spoke to investigators she named two other attorneys who worked on the case. Initially though, due to the sensitive nature of the documents President Trump’s head lawyer had written out the statement and asked Bobb to sign it but left out the other two attorneys.
Christina Bobb, signed the certification statement June 3rd which indicated that President Trump had complied with the May grand jury subpoena and no longer had any classified documents in his possession in Mar-a-Lago. While Bobb was Trump’s custodian of record at the time she did not write the certification statement but is now giving insight as to who was a part of the process.
Bobb mentioned that both of the other two attorneys on the case were keep out of the documents for privacy reasons and that Boris Epshteyn, Trump’s legal advisor, did not help draft the statement and was only minimally involved in conversations surrounding the records.
The Justice Department has now come out stating that the certification was untrue, and agents did execute a search and seizure of 103 more documents.
According to MSN:
“Before Bobb signed the document, she insisted it be rewritten with a disclaimer that said she was certifying Trump had no more records “based upon the information that has been provided to me,” the sources said of what she told investigators. Bobb identified the person who gave her that “information” as Corcoran, the sources said.”
The certification signed by Bobb stated that they performed a diligent search before the certification was signed. It is questionable, then, that the FBI recovered so many records in only a matter of hours just a couple weeks after the search members of President Trump’s council and representatives performed.
President Trump has suggested the FBI has planted evidence. Though as a President shouldn’t he have access to confidential files?
