Former US President Donald Trump has been indicted on charges related to the mishandling of classified documents at his Florida estate. This development makes him the first former president in US history to face criminal charges brought by the federal government.
The indictment includes seven criminal counts, which encompass allegations such as willful retention of national defense information, obstruction, false statements, and conspiracy. These charges add to the legal troubles Trump is already facing, including separate indictments in New York and ongoing investigations in Washington and Atlanta.
The indictments in multiple jurisdictions have put Trump in a precarious legal position, and the outcomes of these cases will have significant implications for his future and could potentially set legal precedents. As the legal proceedings progress, the focus will be on the courtroom as Trump seeks to mount a defense against the mounting allegations.
