Quick Glance: Judge Dismisses Trump's Indictment in Classified Documents Case
  • A federal judge dismissed the indictment against former President Donald Trump in his classified documents case, ruling that the appointment of special counsel Jack Smith by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland was unconstitutional.
