Whats Inside the Trump Indictment
Indictments against former President Donald J. Trump and a personal aide, Walt Nauta, unsealed Friday reveal a host of embarrassing and potentially devastating new details about a yearlong investigation previously cloaked in prosecutorial secrecy.
The 49-page indictment, containing 37 counts and seven separate charges against the former president and one against his aide, gave the clearest picture yet of the breadth of sensitive materials Mr. Trump removed from the White House, the comically haphazard way the former president and his staff handled documents and, most significantly, what prosecutors described as a pattern of obstruction and false statements intended to block the F.B.I. and grand jury.
Here are some of the most significant, and startling, allegations:
Mr. Trump and Mr. Nauta are accused of conspiring to obstruct justice.
Prosecutors say they have assembled evidence proving that Mr. Trump willfully ignored a May 2022 subpoena requiring him to return everything belonging to the National Archives and took extraordinary steps to obstruct the F.B.I. and grand jury.
