In response to fresh allegations concerning his handling of sensitive data after leaving the White House, former US President Donald Trump issued a not-guilty plea on Friday, according to a court document.
Additionally, Donald Trump renounced his right to appear in person in court on August 10 for his arraignment on the three additional charges.
In the criminal case involving the storage of confidential government documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, federal prosecutors last week brought the new allegations against Trump and two of his workers.
Trump was initially indicted on 37 counts last month, but now he is facing 40 accusations. A third suspect and additional Trump employee, Carlos De Oliveira, was added to the criminal case by the prosecution, along with his valet, Walt Nauta.
The accusations include providing false statements to the FBI, attempting to remove security footage that was the subject of a grand jury subpoena, and illegally keeping a document that held information about national defense.
