Trump Pleads Not Guilty To 37 Charges In Historic Arraignment

Written by on June 14, 2023

Former President Donald Trump has pleaded not guilty to 37 federal charges in a historic arraignment in Miami Tuesday afternoon, NBC News reports.

The 76-year-old’s federal charges stem from his alleged misuse and concealment of more than 100 top-secret documents after leaving the presidency in January 2021, the New York Post reports.

Last week, Trump’s aide Walter Nauta was similarly indicted on six charges related to the case. Nauta, a Navy veteran, is accused of helping Trump to hide the top-secret documents in question.

Nauta and Trump were booked in Miami on Tuesday afternoon and were formally arraigned before a judge around 3 p.m. A federal prosecutor did not find Trump nor Nauta to be a flight risk,

Per the conditions of his release, Trump will not have to surrender his passport. Meanwhile, no limitations have been placed on his domestic or international travel, CBS reported.
