Justice Department investigation into classified Donald Trump documents nears completion

Hello, OnPolitics readers. It looks like one of the many criminal investigations facing Donald Trump may soon be coming to an end, report USA TODAY reporters David Jackson and Bart Jansen.

A series of signs suggest the DOJ is nearing the end of its investigation of the former president over classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago and with that, a decision on a possible indictment.

The signs: After requesting a meeting by letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Trump attorneys John Rowley and James Trusty arrived at the DOJ on Monday, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

The meeting comes shortly after the DOJ informed former Vice President Mike Pence that he would not be prosecuted over the discovery of classified documents found at his home in Indiana.

Trump denies any wrongdoing: In an article on Truth Social on Sunday, Trump cited “reports” that prosecutors “want to charge me for the BOXES HOAX,” describing the investigation as political retaliation. In another section of the message, he wrote, in all caps, that “I DID NOTHING WRONG. ELECTORAL INTERFERENCE!”
