Matthew Calamari Sr. and Matthew Calamari Jr., longtime Trump Organization executives, are scheduled to appear before a grand jury on Thursday to testify about how surveillance footage and conversations between Trump employees were handled after a subpoena was served.
The grand jury is looking into the possible mishandling of classified documents brought to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence.Throughout his decades-long career working for Trump, Calamari Sr., executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Trump Organization, has primarily been in charge of the security operations for Trump and his properties. The Trump Organization’s director of security is his son, Calamari Jr.
Following the Trump Organization’s receipt of a subpoena for the surveillance footage last summer, prosecutors for special counsel Jack Smith have been questioning witnesses about how the surveillance footage from the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort was handled in recent weeks.
Walt Nauta, a close Trump aide, was reportedly seen on video removing boxes containing documents from a storage cupboard with another member of the Mar-a-Lago crew.
The footage is part of the Justice Department’s probe into the mishandling of highly classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after the former president left the White House and possible obstruction of justice. Charges have not yet been filed against anyone in this case.
