Trump to Meet Probation Official Before Sentencing in Hush Money Case


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will meet with a probation official as part of the court process before his sentencing in his New York hush money trial case.

The virtual interview will take place on Monday, Steven Cheung, Trump campaign communications director, confirmed.

The interview will be with a female probation official over a secure virtual network, according to NBC News, and Trump will be accompanied by his attorney, Todd Blanche, at his Mar-a-Lago estate. The interview is standard procedure after someone is convicted of a crime, which Trump was late last month on 34 counts of falsifying business records.

Trump’s defense team is expected to submit their sentencing recommendation on June 13, according to the outlet. The former president is scheduled to be sentenced for his conviction on July 11, four days before the Republican National Convention.

The Trump campaign directed their ire at President Joe Biden and Democrats for Trump’s court predicament, which they have called a “witch hunt,” maintaining the GOP candidate’s innocence.

Cheung said Biden and his allies “continue to ramp up their ongoing Witch-Hunts, further abusing and misusing the power of their offices to interfere in the presidential election. President Trump and his legal team are already taking necessary steps to challenge and defeat the lawless Manhattan DA case. The American People will not fall for the Biden-directed Hoaxes and will hold Crooked Joe and his comrades to account this fall.”

Biden has maintained his separation from Trump’s New York hush-money case, which was brought by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

Trump also faces three other criminal court cases, two in federal court (in south Florida and Washington, D.C.) and one in Georgia, though none of them are expected to go to court before November’s presidential election.
