Trump lawyers quit after second indictment

Washington Correspondent

For the second time this year, a lawyer for Donald Trump confirmed he’ll surrender to the authorities after being criminally indicted.

This time though the charges are federal – a first for a former US president – and the scene of the drama will be a Miami courthouse on Tuesday.

Mr Trump is already using the indictment to energise his latest bid for the White House, claiming it’s evidence of the political witch hunt of which he’s long claimed to be a victim.
