Former President Trump Pleads Not Guilty To Federal Charges In Classified Documents Case

The Washington Times, where my On Crime column appears, reports that former President Trump pleaded not guilty to multiple counts in a case about mishandling classified documents.

MIAMI — Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 37 felony counts related to mishandling classified documents, obstructing justice and making false statements.


Mr. Trump is the first ex-president to be charged with federal crimes, adding to a list of legal entanglements that threaten to distract him from his 2024 presidential campaign, and, if convicted, stain his political legacy and put him in prison for the rest of his life


Todd Blanche, Mr. Trump’s new attorney, entered the plea on behalf of the former president.


The historic arraignment at the Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Miami will test the justice system amid intense polarization that has become a defining feature of American politics, turned friends into foes, and put the nation on edge.
