image for Trump finds no new lawyers for court appearance in Mar-a-Lago case

The lawyers making an appearance with Trump on Tuesday will be the top former federal prosecutor Todd Blanche and the former Florida solicitor general Chris Kise, according to people familiar with the matter.

Trump has also seemingly been unable to find a specialist national security lawyer, eligible to possess a security clearance, to help him navigate the Espionage Act charges.

Blanche and Kise had dinner with Trump and other advisers on Monday at the BLT Prime restaurant at the Doral.

Trump and his team have interviewed the corruption attorney Benedict Kuehne, who was indicted in 2008 for money laundering before the charges were dropped, the person said.

But he has his own baggage as he faces disbarment for contempt of court in a recent civil suit he lost.

Donald Trump arrives in Miami a day before his scheduled arraignment on a 37-count federal indictment involving classified documents.
