Special Counsel Jack Smith is investigating Rudy Giuliani for the fake voters scheme and other Trump attorneys for the classified documents scandal.
Federal prosecutors investigating efforts to nullify the 2020 election have asked witnesses numerous questions about the actions of Rudy Giuliani, an attorney for former President Donald Trump – including where he got his information about an alleged fraud , what he did in the days around January 6, 2021, and what he knew of the actions to come that day, say people who appeared before the grand jury.
And prosecutors have repeatedly requested information about the actions of another Trump lawyer, Boris Epshteyn, regarding both classified documents and Trump’s fake voter scheme, three people said. They interviewed several Trump lawyers involved in the documents case, including Christina Bobb, Alina Habba and Jesse Binnall, according to people familiar with the investigation, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss.

Trump’s lawyers become witnesses and targets of investigation. The crime-fraud exemption means that attorney/client privilege does not apply where criminal activity is involved. The reason special advocate investigations into Trump seem to be taking so long is because there is a convoluted, intricate web and actions to unravel.
It almost seems like no one is clean in Trump’s orbit, and he’s running a political crime operation. Attorney General Garland appears to have named the right person for Jack Smith’s job. Special Counsel Smith does not hesitate or defer to the ousted former president. He is coming directly for Trump and his entire network with Justice Department resources and capabilities.
