Trump meets with N.Y. probation officer over video

The routine meeting with the officer was ‘uneventful,’ a source familiar with the matter says.

Former president Donald Trump met with his probation officer via a video conference call Monday, a routine step following a verdict in the Manhattan hush money trial that found him guilty on 34 counts.

The interview with the New York City Department of Probation was “uneventful and lasted less than thirty minutes,” according to a person familiar with the proceedings who spoke on the condition anonymity to freely discuss the private meeting.

Trump received special dispensation to hold the meeting virtually and was in Palm Beach, Fla. He was also allowed to have one of his lawyers appear alongside him, an exception granted to him by Justice Juan Merchan, who oversaw the trial.
