Former aide to President Trump testifies before a grand jury in Florida

Taylor Budowich, a former Trump aide, testified before a Miami grand jury in the ongoing probe into the handling of classified documents after Trump left office.

The big question: The grand jury is part of special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation, and it remains unclear why it was convened in Florida instead of Washington D.C.
* High-profile witnesses have been testifying in recent weeks.

Their words: Budowich tweeted that he answered every question honestly and described the effort as ~~”bogus and deeply troubling.”~~
* Mark Meadows’ attorney declined to confirm if Meadows has testified but stated he has a commitment to tell the truth where legally obligated.

Context: The dispute over records at Mar-a-Lago in Florida came to light in August 2022 when the FBI executed a search warrant at the property.
* Trump has denied any allegations of inappropriate accessing of classified material, and no charges have been brought forth by the special counsel thus far.
