Former President Donald Trump’s attorney Evan Corcoran has recused himself from representing Trump in the special counsel investigation related to documents at Mar-a-Lago

Despite his recusal from the Mar-a-Lago probe, Corcoran still represents Trump on other matters, including January 6, 2021, investigation. Evan Corcoran could still resume representing Trump in the case of the document, now that he has testified.

It is unclear how valuable the evidence and testimony he provided to the grand jury will be for prosecutors. Corcoran testified twice to the grand jury and turned over documents. Corcoran had a window into many of the moments in which Donald Trump and his team were responding to the federal government’s efforts to get classified documents back.

Prosecutors sought to ask Corcoran about his direct interactions with Trump regarding a May 2022 subpoena for all classified records in the former president’s possession, the subsequent search for classified records, and conversations they’d had when the Trump Organization received a separate subpoena for surveillance video of the club.

They were handing over classified records they found in response to the May subpoena. However, months later, the FBI found hundreds more pages with classified markings in its search of Mar-a-Lago, a pivotal development in the records mishandling and obstruction of justice probe.

In recent weeks, the grand jury activity, including Corcoran’s forced testimony, has made clear that prosecutors are nailing down evidence from scores of sources that could be used in a case against Trump. However, the former president has not been charged with any federal crime.
