The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, is facing serious legal troubles after being indicted on 37 federal counts by a special counsel.

The charges stem from his alleged mishandling of classified documents that contained sensitive information about national security and foreign affairs.

According to the indictment, Trump removed a large number of classified records from the White House when he left office in January 2021 and stored them in various locations at his Mar-a-Lago estate and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

He also showed some of the documents to unauthorized people, including a political operative and a journalist.

The indictment accuses Trump of violating the Espionage Act, which prohibits the willful retention of national defense information, as well as obstructing justice and making false statements to investigators.

The special counsel, Jack Smith, said that Trump’s actions endangered the country and violated the law. “We have one set of laws in this country,” Smith said. “They apply to everyone.”
