Index – Abroad – Donald Trump hid US nuclear secrets in his bathroom

In a total of 37 counts, former US President Donald Trump is suspected of hiding classified US documents in his home in Florida, for example in a shower and banqueting hall, and of lying to the investigating authorities.

According to the indictment, he then tried to prevent the investigation into handling the documents. Trump, who is running for re-election in 2024, has denied any wrongdoing.

the BBC In his report, charges were also brought against Walt Nauta, a personal adviser to Trump, who worked as a chef in the White House during Trump’s presidency. According to the indictment, Nauta helped Trump hide files from the FBI.

The 49-page indictment is the first indictment in US history against a former US president. According to the indictment, the documents included information about:

  • regarding the nuclear programs of the United States,
  • regarding the defense capabilities and armaments of the United States and other foreign countries,
  • the potential vulnerability of the United States and its allies in the event of a military attack,
  • About your possible revenge plans to respond to an alien attack.

When Trump left office, prosecutors say, he took about 300 classified files with him to Mar-a-Lago — his oceanfront home that doubles as a sprawling private club.

He showed documents to unauthorized persons on several occasions

The indictment notes that Mar-a-Lago hosted events for tens of thousands of members and guests, including at the ballroom where the documents were found.

Prosecutors say Trump tried to obstruct the FBI’s investigation into the missing documents by telling his attorneys to “hide or destroy them” or telling investigators he was “not in his possession.”

In 2021, the former president showed classified documents to people without security clearances on several occasions, including a writer and two of his staff.

At his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, which was also an off-licence site in addition to his property in Florida, he allegedly presented and explained a “plan of attack” that he said had been prepared for him by the Department of Defense.

Donald Trump’s first hearing in the case will be held in Miami on Tuesday — the eve of his 77th birthday.
