Prosecutors have said that Trump took approximately 300 classified documents to his house after leaving the White House. The FBI seized 100 of them in August 2022 while raiding his home. However, he is accused of hiding the remaining documents and issuing false statements in his attempts to conceal the records.
The classified documents contained secret information regarding the defense and weapons capabilities of the U.S. and foreign countries, U.S. nuclear programs, likely vulnerabilities of the U.S. and its allies to military attack, and plans for possible retaliation in response to a foreign attack.
He also has classified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Department of State and Bureau of Intelligence & Research, the National Reconnaissance Office, etc.
A special counsel, Jack Smith, was appointed to investigate Trump’s documents, and the attorney issued a 49-page indictment(now available to download online). In a press conference after the charges were revealed, Smith said, “It is a felony violation of our national security laws in addition to participating in a conspiracy to obstruct justice.” In his indictment, Trump is charged with willful retention of national defense information, withholding or concealing a document in a federal investigation, false statements and representations, and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
Smith has said that Trump will face a speedy trial in this case, consistent with the public interest and rights of the accused. He also faced many charges in New York State Court for his conduct before he was elected President.
He is also accused of falsifying business records to hide payments made to an adult actress to silence her from speaking about her affair with Trump during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
Likewise, the former President is under investigation by Georgia state prosecutors for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. In addition, Smith is inquiring about Trump’s attempts to stay in office after he lost the presidential election.
