Donald Trump announces his indictment in the White House Archives case

Donald Trump announced, Thursday, that he is accused in the case of the White House archives, in which he was accused of taking entire boxes of documents, some of them classified, when he left the presidency.

Former US President Donald Trump announced, on his “TruthSocial” network, that he is accused in the case of the White House archives that were found at his residence in Florida, in Mar-a-Lago. Donald Trump has claimed, in several letters released Thursday evening, that he is “innocent”.

“The corrupt Biden administration has informed my lawyers that I have been charged, most likely in a false funds case,” she denounced the former White House tenant, referring to a “dark day” for the US.

In court on Tuesday afternoon

Donald Trump also announced that he was being summoned to federal court in Miami on Tuesday afternoon (9:00 p.m. Paris time) to be formally charged.

On Wednesday, federal prosecutors told the Republican billionaire’s attorney, once again in the race for the White House, that he had been personally targeted in the investigation in this case.

He is accused of keeping entire boxes of documents, including some classified as a “secret defense,” after he left Washington in 2021 and refusing to return them, in violation of federal laws.

Donald Trump, who is currently far ahead of other candidates for the Republican nomination, has always defended himself against any embezzlement and presented himself as a victim of “political persecution”, according to Agence France-Presse.

In April, he was indicted by a New York state court for falsifying accounting documents related to a $130,000 payment to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election, in exchange for his silence about a supposed connection.

Therefore, Donald Trump was charged, a few months before the start of the US presidential campaign, in two separate cases. A precedent for a former president of the United States.
