Jack Smith, the special counsel, intends to present witnesses who have examined data extracted from the cellphone of former president Trump.

Among these witnesses are two who have assessed the Twitter habits of Trump and the movement of the crowd that gathered after his speech on January 6, 2021.

The filing on Monday serves as the initial indication of how Smith intends to utilize a substantial portion of the information obtained from Trump’s Twitter account, presently referred to as X, subsequent to an undisclosed legal dispute to obtain entry to the account.

In the election interference case, prosecutors also obtained information from the mobile phone of Trump’s White House aide, whom they referred to as “Individual 1” in the filing.

The precise nature of the information obtained by prosecutors from Trump’s phone remains unknown; however, the filing indicates that an expert examined “images discovered on the phones and websites visited.”

However, it is conceivable that the expert might offer more profound analysis regarding Trump’s remark that targeted former Vice President Mike Pence.

Prosecutors also intend to summon another expert witness to examine the manner in which a gathering of Trump’s supporters advanced in reaction to his exhortation to march towards the Capitol.
