Trump allegedly attempted to have surveillance video deleted: Special Counsel

September 12, 2023

Former President Donald Trump and two others are facing additional charges in special counsel Jack Smith's investigation into Trump's handling of classified documents after leaving office. De Oliveira allegedly told another employee that "the boss" wanted the server containing Mar-a-Lago security footage deleted, and asked how long it kept footage, according to the indictment. It also charges De Oliveira with false statements and representations in a voluntary interview with the FBI on Jan. 13, 2023. Trump gave an interview to Fox News after his indictment where he denied that the material in his possession at Bedminster was a classified document. In response to Thursday's superseding indictment, the Trump campaign issued a statement claiming the charges are aimed to "harass" Trump and his allies.
