A just unsealed indictment against former U.S. president Donald Trump shows he faces 37 charges related to the mishandling of national secrets and conspiring to obstruct justice.
It’s the second Trump, already the only American president to be impeached twice, has been indicted by a grand jury in less than three months.
This indictment alleges Trump stored ”scores of boxes” in various rooms throughout his Florida estate, including a ballroom, a bathroom and a shower.
He’s also accused of describing a Pentagon ”plan of attack” and sharing a classified map related to a military operation, and showing classified documents to people at his New Jersey golf club in 2021 and admitting they were secret.
Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith says prosecutors would seek a speedy trial and ”very much look forward” to presenting their case.
Charged along with Trump is aide Walt Nauta who was seen on surveillance camera removing boxes at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump’s maintained his innocence.
He’s due in Miami court Tuesday in a case reportedly assigned to a judge Trump appointed while he was president.
Some of the charges he faces carry a maximum penalty of 20-years in prison, if convicted.
