No new indictments today for Donald Trump, but new charges were added in the Mar-a-Lago ‘mishandling of classified documents‘ case.

From CNN:

Special counsel Jack Smith on Thursday brought additional charges against former President Donald Trump in the case alleging mishandling of classified documents from his time in the White House.

Prosecutors allege in the updated indictment that two Trump employees – Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira – attempted to delete security camera footage at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort after the Justice Department issued a subpoena for the footage.

De Oliveira told the director of IT at the resort, “that ‘the boss’ wanted the server deleted,” according to the indictment.

The new defendant, maintenance worker Carlos De Oliveira, allegedly drained Mar-a-Lago’s pool last year, flooding the room containing the club’s surveillance footage.

He is charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, altering, destroying, or mutilating a document, and making false statements.
