Trump Facing Charges from Biden DOJ of Espionage Act Violation, Obstruction of Justice

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is reportedly planning to bring charges against former President Donald Trump stemming from alleged classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago to a federal court nearby in Florida.  The legal rationale behind the move surrounds the bulk of action at the center of the investigation occurred within the southern district of Florida, according to the Washington Post.  Filing some charges in the southern district of Florida doesn’t rule out the possibility of prosecutors bringing forth charges such as perjury or making false statements in a D.C. court where Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation is taking place.   The Independent reports that as early as Thursday, the DOJ is preparing to ask the grand jury to indict Trump for violation of the Espionage Act and for obstruction of justice. Trump posted on Truth Social, “No one has told me I’m being indicted, and I shouldn’t be because I’ve done NOTHING wrong.”
