Walt Nauta, an aide to former President Trump, has been indicted along with the former president, according to the federal indictment unsealed Friday.

The 38th count in the indictment against Trump alleges Nauta made false statements and representations during a May 26, 2022 interview with the FBI.

Specifically, the government alleges Nauta lied when he said he did not know how boxes of classified documents were found in various locations within Mar-a-Lago, when he had moved the boxes himself.

Nauta is named a co-conspirator in the case, and has been a key witness in the investigation led by special counsel Jack Smith into the handling of classified documents after Trump left office.
