Lawyers for Donald Trump are meeting with members of special counsel Jack Smith’s team as a potential indictment looms over the former president’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The meeting includes Trump lawyer John Lauro, says the person, speaking on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press to describe a private gathering.

Trump earlier this month was informed by Smith’s office that he was a target of the Justice Department’s investigation, suggesting that an indictment could be soon.

A spokesman for Smith declines to comment on the meeting.
