A special counsel has been appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate the presence of classified documents at former president Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate as well as his possible role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

According to the Associated Press, Jack Smith, a veteran prosecutor, will oversee the investigations.
