The recent developments in the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s handling of classified information after leaving the White House suggest that federal prosecutors might pursue criminal charges against him in his home state of Florida rather than in Washington, D.C., Your Content has learned.

Special Counsel Jack Smith has convened grand juries in both Miami and Washington to examine the evidence in this case.

Notably, Taylor Budowich, a former Trump spokesman, revealed that he appeared before the Miami grand jury. Media outlets have also reported the presence of prosecutors working on the investigation at the Florida courthouse.

Legal experts have raised questions about the appropriate jurisdiction for filing charges. Since the alleged crimes took place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, some argue that charges should be filed in Florida. However, Smith’s office declined to comment on this matter, and Trump’s lawyer has not responded to requests for comment.

According to a reliable source, federal prosecutors have informed Trump’s legal team that he is a target of the investigation.

In order to avoid potential legal battles over the venue, the U.S. Justice Department might consider bringing the case in Florida.

This strategy would deny Trump’s team the argument that the trial is taking place in a politically biased location. Given that Florida voted for Trump in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, it might be viewed as a less hostile environment for the former president.

However, experts emphasize that the strength of the evidence may outweigh concerns about the jury pool.

Former federal prosecutor Michael Bromwich suggests that the Special Counsel’s team is building a robust case, which gives them confidence in proving their claims to virtually any jury, even if it is less favorable to Trump.

The choice of venue could ultimately hinge on the specific charges Trump faces.

If obstruction of justice is the primary allegation, it would likely point to a prosecution in Florida. On the other hand, if the conspiracy is perceived as more extensive and involves the removal of documents from the White House, Washington, D.C., could become the preferred jurisdiction.

In any case, these recent developments indicate a significant step forward in the ongoing investigation, which continues to draw national attention, according to The Washington Post.
