Trump Indictment In Classified Documents Probe Unsealed

The criminal indictment against Donald Trump for mishandling classified government records was unsealed on Friday. The 37-count indictment became public after a grand jury in U.S. District Court in Miami charged the former president.

The indictment accuses Trump of various offenses, including showing classified documents to unauthorized individuals in 2021, even after leaving office. Alongside Trump, his aide Walter Nauta was also charged. Trump is scheduled for arraignment in Miami on Tuesday, just before his 77th birthday.

Trump faces 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information. Additionally, he is charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding and corruptly concealing documents, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.

“The purpose of the conspiracy was for TRUMP to keep classified documents he has taken with him from the White House and to hide and conceal them from a federal grand jury,” the indictment said.

The indictment highlights that as Trump left the White House, numerous boxes, some containing classified documents, were transported to his residence at The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The indictment states that Trump was not authorized to possess or retain those classified documents.

On the same day, two of Trump’s lawyers resigned from representing him in the classified documents case, as well as in another ongoing federal criminal investigation related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
