    New Update In DA Bragg’s Case Against Trump After Federal Indictment

    Published on

    On Tuesday in Miami, the former president was arraigned on federal charges related to his handling of classified documents, which dealt a significant blow to two main cases against him.

    During an interview on MSNBC, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that both her case and the one filed by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg against Trump “will unfortunately have to be adjourned” because the federal case will take precedence.

    “In all likelihood, I believe that my case, as well as DA Bragg and the Georgia case, will, unfortunately, have to be adjourned pending the outcome of the federal case,” James said. “So it all depends upon the scheduling of this particular case. I know there’s gonna be a flood, a flurry of motions, motion to dismiss, discovery issues, all of that. So it really all depends. Obviously, all of us want to know what Judge [Aileen] Cannon is going to do and whether or not she’s going to delay this particular case.”

    Trump was arraigned in the case brought against him by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Biden’s Department of Justice, on Tuesday in Miami.

    Trump’s counsel entered a “not guilty” plea on his behalf in federal court.

    The federal judge granted Trump pre-trial release with no restrictions other than a prohibition on witness contact. Smith has filed 37 charges against Trump relating to his management of classified documents. Trump, President Joe Biden’s chief opponent in next year’s presidential election, could face decades in prison if proven guilty on all charges.

    Judge Goodman, who presided over Trump’s arraignment on Tuesday, did not permit cameras, phones, or electronic devices in the courtroom in Miami; however, reporters reported what they observed while inside.

    “However, there was no apparent eye contact between Trump and Smith during the day’s proceedings. Trump sat with his arms folded most of the time, talking with his lawyers occasionally. But Trump did not speak and Magistrate Judge Goodman never addressed him directly,” Fox News reported.

    “Judge Goodman asked both sides if they agreed to waive the reading of the indictment, to which they agreed, so the matter got to Trump’s arraignment fairly quickly. Most of the arguments from both sides were about Trump’s contact with potential witnesses, and the defense pointed out that they don’t even have a full list of witnesses yet,” the outlet added.

    Evan Perez of CNN was also in the courtroom and reported that Trump did not appear enthusiastic to be there.

    “He had a very serious look on his face, periodically had his arms folded,” Perez said. “The former president entered the room probably about 30 or 40 minutes before the judge. We couldn’t see exactly when he entered the room because the televisions of the room that we were in were not turned on immediately, but we saw, you know, the lawyers take their seats and the former president sort of twiddling his thumbs while he waited for proceedings to take his place.”

    At least twice, according to the indictment, Trump is alleged to have shown classified documents to individuals who lacked the necessary security clearances. The DOJ claims that both incidents occurred at Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
