WASHINGTON: After, the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) has unsealed a 49-page indictment against former President Donald Trump that includes 37 federal felony counts for serious allegations related to Trump’s handling of classified documents after his presidency, things are changing fast. 

According to a Rolling Stone report, Trump shot out a series of desperate pleas on his social media platform Truth Social, including multiple appeals to Congress to bail him out, hours after news broke that the Justice Department had turned over the first batch of evidence it plans to use against him. 

“Congress, please investigate the political witch hunts against me currently being brought by the corrupt DOJ and FBI, who are totally out of control,” Trump wrote Thursday morning while further saying that “Congress will hopefully now look at the ever continuing Witch Hunts and election interference against me on perfectly legal boxes, where I have no doubt that information is being secretly ‘planted’ by the scoundrels in charge.” in another post

Trump is accused of knowingly taking classified documents to his Mar-a-Lago estate, storing them in unsecure locations, and showing them to individuals without the necessary clearance. Furthermore, it is alleged that Trump conspired to lie about the documents he possessed and even suggested their destruction.

In response to the indictment, Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges, and a trial is set to begin on August 14.

Among the classified documents Trump is accused of retaining are those related to U.S. and foreign defence and weapons capabilities, US nuclear programs, potential vulnerabilities of the US and its allies to military attacks, and plans for possible retaliation in response to a foreign attack.
