Court officials have confirmed that Donald Trump, as well as his aide and co-defendant, Walt Nauta, has been officially processed and is now set to face a total of 37 charges related to his handling of classified documents following his departure from the White House. Despite the charges, Trump is expected to plead not guilty to all of them. In an interesting turn of events, Alina Habba, Trump’s spokesperson, emphasized that Trump is in a “unique position” and will not be subjected to standard procedures such as fingerprinting or being photographed for a mugshot.
After Trump’s processing, Alina Habba drew attention to the fact that both Joe Biden and Mike Pence had possession of classified documents, yet neither of them faced any charges. Furthermore, Habba pointed out that Hillary Clinton had never been charged, despite her employees destroying evidence with a hammer. It’s worth noting that none of these individuals held the position of President, unlike Trump. Habba criticized what she perceived as the justice system’s clear bias against Trump, comparing the situation to that of banana republics like “Cuba” or “Venezuela,” where political figures can be imprisoned for opposing the establishment.
It is significant to mention that Trump is the first former or current President in history to face federal charges. As he arrived at the Miami courthouse, Trump was greeted by a crowd of supporters, with estimates suggesting that thousands of protesters were eagerly awaiting his arrival.
The proceedings will be overseen by magistrate judge Jonathan Goodman, who is on duty in Miami this week.
