Washington — Special counsel Jack Smith will deliver a statement on Friday, the Justice Department announced, hours after the unprecedented federal indictment of former President Donald Trump in connection to his handling of sensitive government records after leaving the White House.

The former president announced, and U.S. officials confirmed, that a federal grand jury indicted Trump, a historic move that marks the first time a former president has been criminally charged by the Justice Department. Trump has been summoned to appear in federal district court in Miami on Tuesday for an arraignment.

The charges stem from Smith's investigation into the former president's alleged mishandling of documents bearing classified markings recovered from his South Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago, after he left office.
