Special counsel Jack Smith is finished with collecting testimony and other evidence in his investigation into Donald Trump's classified documents taken to Mar-a-Lago, according to a report.

Reporting Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal revealed that those close to the former president are "bracing for his indictment" and are searching for ways "to fundraise off a prosecution."

On Monday, the New York Times reported that the Justice Department had subpoenaed financial documents involving business dealings between Trump's company and seven overseas countries in conjunction with the documents probe.

Over the course of the investigation, Mar-a-Lago staff, Trump aides and lawyers have been called to testify before the grand jury. A number of the interviews have come in recent weeks as the probe comes to a close.

Given a recent CNN report, it appears that the latest piece of the investigation has been about possible obstructions of justice. For example, last week the National Archives turned over all communications between then-President Trump and White House staff about the training they received on preserving documents.

The final decision on an indictment is ultimately left up to Attorney General Merrick Garland, though if there is one, it will come at the recommendation of the federal grand jury.

There is still an ongoing investigation into the attempt to overthrow the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
