He was accused of trying to extract images from security cameras that were of interest to investigators, according to AFP. A hearing in the case for custody of classified documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is scheduled for May 2024 in Florida, in the midst of the Republican primary, in which Donald Trump is the favorite. The former president strongly questions the facts that are imputed to him. Trump, as well as two of his aides, are now being charged with asking an employee at his Florida residence to “delete CCTV footage to prevent those images from being brought to justice.”

One of the two accused aides, Walt Nauta, has already been charged along with Donald Trump. The charge against Carlos de Oliveira is new. The latter, according to the prosecution, said that “the boss wanted this server wiped down”, shortly after federal investigators requested access to CCTV footage of the room where the boxes of documents were stored. The former president is also accused of possessing another secret military document: he allegedly showed it and called it to several people after leaving the White House, “top secret.”

The new accusations made Thursday are “ridiculous,” Trump said on the Fox News website, once again accusing his successor Joe Biden of being involved in a federal justice investigation. “This is electoral interference. If we had not surpassed Biden in many polls (…), this would not have happened, ”he said.

Donald Trump was previously indicted on 37 counts, including “unlawful concealment of national security information,” “obstruction of justice” and “perjury” in this case, in which he pleaded not guilty in Miami federal court in mid- of June. He is accused of endangering the security of the United States by keeping confidential documents at his Florida residence after his departure from the White House in January 2021, including military plans and information on nuclear weapons, instead of turning them over to the National Archives. . The Espionage Law prohibits keeping state secrets in unauthorized and unguarded places. The problems for Donald Trump may not end there: the Georgia prosecutor is also due to announce in September the results of his investigation into the pressure he allegedly exerted to change the results of the 2020 presidential election in that southern state.
