Trump Charges Unsealed: Here’s What’s In Them

The 49-page indictment against former President Trump was unsealed Friday, and contains 38 counts across seven criminal charges, including willful retention of national defense information, corruptly concealing documents, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements.

Special Counsel Jack Smith will hold a press conference at 3pm ET.

As attorney and journalist Techno Fog notes via The Reactionary, Trump faces up to 100 years in prison if convicted.

This is the first indictment of its kind; we are in new territory, led there by a regime that demands victory at any cost, no matter the political norms or the legal barriers standing in its way. The erosion of the institutions continues.

As Trump faces charges, and as the authorities and media promise that the charges (this time) are legitimate, make no mistake that millions of voters see it as something else: that they’ve been disenfranchised once again. As for the rest of America, it’s safe to assume that many feel little confidence in this prosecution. They see it for what it is.

Trump is expected to appear in Federal District Court in Miami on Tuesday afternoon to face charges. His first appearance will be before Judge Eileen M. Cannon, who was appointed by Trump in 2020.

The indictment marks the first time in US history that a former president has faced federal charges – and is the first time a sitting president’s DOJ has indicted his chief political rival in an upcoming election.

At one point, Trump allegedly made a ‘plucking motion’ to indicate to his attorney that anything ‘really bad’ should be removed from the retained files.

Prosecutors also charged former presidential aide, Waltine Nauta, who continued to work for Trujmp after he left office.
