Trump Responds After Special Counsel Smith Files New Charges Against Him

After receiving fresh allegations from special counsel Jack Smith the previous day, former president Donald Trump gave an explanation of sorts on Friday.

Smith reportedly filed three new accusations against Trump in the case involving the secret materials on Thursday, stating that he tried to delete security camera footage in order to “alter, destroy, mutilate, or conceal evidence” and to persuade someone else to do the same. The New York Times claims that the video purports to show someone transporting crates of paperwork.

As a result of a well-reported event at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, where he is accused of sharing sensitive material with multiple people, Trump is also facing a new count under the Espionage Act.

In a Fox News interview, Trump criticized his political rival’s Justice Department for engaging in “abuse” and said that he was the top Republican challenger against the rapidly aging and scandal-plagued President Joe Biden.

As a result of Smith’s investigation into the alleged unlawful preservation of sensitive records during his presidency, Trump was formally charged in June. He filed a not-guilty plea to a total of 37 counts, which include accusations of making false statements, conspiring to obstruct justice, and deliberate retention of national defense information.

The first former president to face federal charges is him.

As soon as he learned about the most recent indictment, Trump said to Fox News Digital, “It’s electoral interference at the highest level.” They are bothering my family, my business, and, by far, least importantly, they are harassing me.

The claims are absurd, and they are the ones who know it best, Trump told the media outlet.

To this degree, prosecutorial misconduct has never been used before, according to Trump. “That wouldn’t be occurring if I wasn’t the Republican nominee and wasn’t far ahead of Biden in many polls. The event would not take place.

He continued, saying further that “our country is suffering from DOJ abuse,” adding, “But I am way up as a Republican and way up in the general election, and this is what you get.”

He remarked, “Hopefully, the Republican Party will take action.”

According to a statement released by the Justice Department on Thursday, a grand jury in the Southern District of Florida “returned a superseding indictment that adds one defendant and four charges to the earlier indictment brought against Donald J. Trump and Waltine Nauta.”

The DOJ stated that the new count in the superseding indictment “charges Trump with one additional allegation of intentional retention of National Defense Information.” “The obstruction conspiracy allegation in the original indictment has been amended to include Carlos de Oliveira, 56, of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.”

The DOJ said that “the superseding indictment now charges Trump, De Oliveira, and Nauta with two new obstruction counts based on allegations that the defendants sought to erase security camera footage at The Mar-a-Lago Club in summer 2022.

The superseding indictment also accuses De Oliveira of making false claims during a voluntary interview with the FBI on January 13, 2023, according to the DOJ. De Oliveira has been ordered to appear in Courtroom #5 at the James L. King Federal Courthouse in Miami on July 31, 2023, at 10:30 a.m.

The Biden Crime Family and its Department of Justice are continuing their desperate and vain attempts to harass President Trump and anyone close to him, according to a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, who told Fox News Digital that “this is nothing more than a flailing and desperate attempt.”

“Deranged Jack Smith knows that they have no case and is casting about for any way to salvage their illegal witch hunt and to get someone other than Donald Trump to run against Crooked Joe Biden,” the spokesperson noted further.
