Transcript for Court rules Trump attorney Evan Corcoran must testify in special counsel docs probe
NARRATOR: This morning, a lawyer representing former President Trump in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case is preparing to appear before a grand jury. A panel of judges yesterday rejected Trump's effort to block his lawyer, Evan Corcoran, from testifying. It comes after a judge determined there's compelling preliminary evidence that Trump knowingly misled his attorneys so they would file a sworn statement, even though he knew it was false. Sources say Corcoran is expected to turn over documents as soon as today.
Meanwhile, barricades surrounding the Manhattan courthouse as the DA investigates whether Trump's hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels broke campaign spending laws. Sources say at least one more witness may be called before the grand jury decides whether to indict Trump.
In the meantime, Trump is lashing out at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, his expected rival in the 2024 presidential race. Trump calling him an average governor, criticizing DeSantis' record on COVID and education, and writing, "Ron DeSanctimonious is not working for the people of Florida as he should be, he's too busy chatting with a ratings challenged TV host from England, desperately trying to rescue his failing campaign."
- I don't know how to spell DeSanctimonious. I don't really know what it means, but I kind of like it. It's long. It's got a lot of vowels, I mean, so we go with that, that's fine.
NARRATOR: In his interview with Piers Morgan, DeSantis appeared to question Trump's leadership.
- The way we run the government, I think, is no daily drama, focus on the big picture, and put points on the board. And I think that that's something that's very important.
