Trump targeted in DOJ probe for obstructing classified documents investigation

President Trump has been notified that he is the target of a classified documents probe, according to sources in the Justice Department. The probe reportedly centers on the president’s alleged obstruction of justice and possible violations of the Espionage Act, a federal law that criminalizes the unauthorized disclosure of classified information. Prosecutors are said to be seeking an indictment against Mr. Trump, which could lead to his impeachment and removal from office. The president’s lawyers have denied any wrongdoing on his part, and have called the probe a politically motivated witch-hunt. Meanwhile, legal experts say that the situation could escalate into a constitutional crisis if Mr. Trump is indicted, as it would be unprecedented for a sitting president to face criminal charges while in office.
