Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to oversee Trump-related cases in the Department of Justice (DOJ), was reportedly the restaurant server, Mar-a-Lago’s housekeeper, and was seen on security footage helping to move the box out of the storage room.

Several of the former president’s attorneys and aides have been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury in the investigation, CNN reported.

The network reported Thursday that communications assistant Margo Martin appeared before a grand jury in a Washington, D.C. case.

Nearly 300 classified documents have been recovered from the Mar-a-Lago mansion since Trump left office.

The investigation was conducted amid concerns that the former president did not fully comply with previous subpoenas asking him to turn over all remaining classified materials.
