Trump Has Virtual Meeting With Probation Officer on Monday

Trump is scheduled to sit for a virtual interview from Mar-a-Lago on Monday with a New York City probation officer, while his attorney Todd Blanche is allowed to hold his hand at his side.

The pre-sentencing probation interview will be done over a special virtual network — not Zoom — with added security measures, and the interviewer will be a female. The interview is required by the court as part of Trump’s pre-sentencing report.

The purpose of a probation interview is to obtain information on Trump’s social and criminal history, financial resources, history of mental health, physical or addiction issues as well as to assess his living situation.

Trump will also likely be asked if he is associating with anyone with a criminal record, because he cannot associate with them if he is placed on probation.

The probation officer may also hold follow-up interviews with others at Mar-a-Lago, and then write up a recommendation to be sent to Judge Merchan.

Team Trump is scheduled to submit their sentencing recommendation on June 13.

The MF (Melon Felon) is facing anywhere between probation and up to 4 years in prison after being convicted of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.
