Jack Smith Files Response To Judge’s Order In Trump Classified Docs Case

The trial is currently scheduled to begin on May 20 but Cannon is expected to delay proceedings.

Special counsel Jack Smith has filed his response to the judge’s request overseeing former President Donald Trump’s classified documents, court filings show.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon requested Trump’s legal team and the special counsel submit proposed jury instructions on topics relating to Trump’s motions to dismiss the case.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges after prosecutors allege he repeatedly refused to return hundreds of documents containing classified information after leaving the White House. The FBI says the information in the documents range from U.S. nuclear secrets to the nation’s defense capabilities.

The trial is currently scheduled to begin on May 20 but Cannon is expected to delay proceedings.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information.
