A 38th charge in Trump’s indictment charges aide Walt Nauta with allegedly making false statements and representations in the classified documents situation.
As previously reported by RSBN, 31 of Trump’s 37 charges are related to the Espionage Act.
On Tuesday, the world’s eyes were on Miami as Trump’s convoy blazed a route through the Florida streets toward his arraignment, the second time in less than two months. After a grand jury chose to arrest him, the president was arraigned in Manhattan criminal court in April on 34 counts of allegedly “falsifying” company papers.
Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by US Attorney General Merrick Garland, is leading the federal probe against Trump.
According to a Fox News report, MAGA Inc. slammed Smith’s team of prosecutors in a Tuesday statement, singling out Karen Gilbert, who they claimed resigned from her position at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida for “alleged misconduct, which prompted an apology at the time from the DOJ.”
“Federal Election Commission records also show that Gilbert has donated over $2,000 to the former campaigns of President Biden and former President Barack Obama,” the statement added, via Fox.
