Trump attends closed-door hearing for classified docs case

Trump’s lawyers want to gain access to the classified evidence, which is currently in prosecutors’ hands, but the government’s attorneys oppose the move on grounds that the information is too sensitive.

Cannon wrote in a court document calling the hearing that Trump’s lawyers should be prepared to “discuss their defence theories of the case, in detail, and how any classified information might be relevant or helpful to the defence”.

She is scheduled to hear defense arguments first, and then from federal prosecutors.

Trump is scheduled to go on trial beginning May 20. Also charged are two employees, property manager Carlos de Oliveira and Trump’s personal assistant Waltine Nauta.

In recent weeks, Trump has appeared at hearings in several court cases against him.

The former leader has been leaning into his legal woes, which have not seemed to dent his popularity as the Republican Party’s presidential frontrunner for the 2024 election.
