All rights reserved)A new judge is poised to assume oversight of grand jury investigations concerning former President Donald Trump, including the ongoing probe into classified documents found at his Florida estate. Boasberg is replacing the current chief judge, Beryl Howell, who is also an Obama appointee. The chief judge position rotates on a seven-year basis. The investigations have involved multiple sealed disputes, including a current fight over whether prosecutors can secure additional grand jury testimony from Trump lawyer M. Evan Corcoran. Corcoran had invoked attorney-client privilege during an appearance before the grand jury weeks ago.
