Former President Trump’s lawyers have requested a meeting with Attorney General Merrick Garland as the Justice Department’s special counsel investigates the former president, according to a letter Tuesday.
“Unlike President Biden, his son Hunter, and the Biden family, President Trump has not been treated fairly,” attorneys John Rowley and James Trusty wrote to Garland, according to a letter Trump shared on his Truth Social account without further comment.
The lawyers argue that no other president has been “unreasonably investigated in such an egregious and unlawful manner.”
“We request a meeting at your earliest convenience to discuss the ongoing injustice committed by your Special Counsel and his prosecutors,” they wrote.
The request for a meeting comes especially after the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that DOJ special counsel Jack Smith had ended his investigation into Trump’s handling of classified material — and that the former president’s team preparing for a possible indictment.
Smith also led an investigation into efforts to disrupt the transition of power when Trump lost his reelection bid in 2020. Trump is now running again to regain the White House in 2024.
The note from Rowley and Trusty did not go into detail about what the pair hoped to discuss with Garland. The Hill reached Rowley at the contact shared in the letter for more. The Hill has also reached out to the DOJ for comment.
Trump was recently indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on criminal charges of falsifying business records.
