Question: Did Former President Donald J. Trump mishandle classified secret documents and endanger the security of the United States?

Summary: On June 8, 2023, former President Donald J. Trump was indicted for the handling of classified and national defense-related government documents in violation of the Espionage Act. It is the first time a former U.S. president has faced federal charges. Trump was arraigned at the federal courthouse in Miami on June 13, 2023, on more than 35 criminal charges, pleading not guilty to each charge.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) began a criminal investigation into the former president in 2022 and in November of that year, a special counsel investigation was launched to take over the FBI investigation. The special counsel was Jack Smith, appointed by United States Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Key Highlights:

  • 31 charges related to withholding national defense information
    (one count for each document he is alleged to have kept in his possession)
  • 5 counts related to concealing possession of classified documents
    (Counts include conspiracy to obstruct justice and withholding documents and records)
  • 2 counts false statements
    (Related to statements made to the FBI)
