Christina Bobb — the attorney for former President Donald Trump who certified he had turned over all the classified documents to the government after the end of his administration — spoke recently to federal investigators.

The certification would be proven untrue when the FBI determined the letter was not accurate and conducted a search at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The investigators found hundreds of classified documents that should have been turned over to the National Archives.

Bobb met last week investigators in Washington and shared information that could help to expand the scrutiny into Trump’s failure in getting documents back.
