DoJ wants to hold Trump in contempt over files - report

The United States Department of Justice (DoJ) asked a federal judge to hold former President Donald Trump and his office in contempt of court, CNN reported. Trump disregarded a subpoena issued in May requesting that he hand over classified documents taken from the White House after his term in office ended.

DC District Chief Judge Beryl Howell will consider the motion on Friday. If held in contempt, Trump could be subjected to fines until he complies with the subpoena. Trump's spokesperson Steven Cheung told CNN that the former president and his legal team "continue to cooperate and be transparent, despite the unprecedented, illegal, and unwarranted attacks by the weaponized Department of Justice."
