My understanding of Real Estate developer Donald Trumps Legal Woes

Former president Donald Trump legal woes are now dominating the news cycle as federal prosecutors hit the real estate developer with a 37-count indictment connected to the mishandling of classified documents.

The news surrounding the latest indictment is still unfolding. Special Counsel Jack Smith is expected to make a statement on Friday. Trump has loudly denied wrongdoing, while two members of his council resigned on the heels of the indictment being unsealed. 

Still, this is only the latest legal drama connected to the twice-impeached former president and Republican frontrunner. Here’s a rundown of everything he and his legal team are currently battling.

On Thursday, the Special Counsel’s office filed its indictment and his aide, Walt Nauta, regarding the mishandling of classified documents, ABC News reported. Trump allegedly willfully retained secret government documents after leaving office. He’s also accused of showing them at least twice and obstructing the investigation into their handling. All 38 counts are felony charges, with 31 falling under the Espionage Act. 

January 6 Attacks

Smith is also investigating Trump’s actions following the 2020 presidential election that led to the January 6 attack on the capitol. A special congressional committee has called upon Trump to be charged for inciting or aiding an insurrection.

The status of the probe is unclear, but the Special Counsel has interviewed several significant figures from that day, including then-Vice President Mike Pence and then-White House chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

A few months ago, Trump became the first president in U.S. history to face criminal charges, indicted in New York for allegedly falsifying business records in regards to hush money payment made to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

Trump’s payment violated federal campaign contribution law, according to prosecutors. The 45th president has denied wrongdoing, though admits to reimbursing former attorney Michael Cohen for a payment he made to the porn star.
