The 60-page indictment, blow-by-blow of alleged Mar-a-Lago surveillance footage obstruction


A revised indictment filed on Thursday by special counsel Jack Smith as per his classified documents investigation reportedly details how former President Donald Trump worked with two aides to delete Mar-a-Lago video surveillance footage.

The new indictment specifically charges Mar-a-Lago’s head of maintenance Carlos de Oliveira with conspiracy to obstruct justice, hiding documents, and lying to investigators.

It also adds new charges against Trump: “attempting to ‘alter, destroy, mutilate, or conceal evidence’; inducing someone else to do so; and a new count under the Espionage Act related to a classified national security document that he showed to visitors at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.,” according to The New York Times.

The story begins in January 2022, when Trump turned over 15 boxes of documents to the National Archives and Records Administration. After NARA soon realized the boxes contained classified documents, the agency alerted the Justice Department.

Four months later in May, federal authorities filed a subpoena demanding Trump turn over the remainder of the boxes of documents he had.

At this point, Trump told his valet, Walt Nauta, who’s already been indicted, to move the remaining documents to the former president’s Mar-a-Lago bedroom, as well as to his Bedminster golf club and a Mar-a-Lago storage closet.

FBI agents then visited the property on June 3rd to retrieve the documents. While there, the feds noticed the surveillance cameras. Later that month, they informed Trump’s legal team that they planned to subpoena the surveillance footage.

Where is that video Ted Cruz did of Hillary beating drives with hammers go?

If you want to keep something that does not belong to ya (according to the government), Roamer (and me) can suggest a few places to hide things that aren't so easy to find. First off, you can scan the documents and digitize it and then you have a jump drive to hide instead of boxes. Good grief, the stupid, it hurts.

Carry on with your support for this gross abuse of DOJ. See how that works out for you. (YOU are the target! Trump is just in the way.)

From further on down in the story:

FBI agents then visited the property on June 3rd to retrieve the documents. While there, the feds noticed the surveillance cameras. Later that month, they informed Trump’s legal team that they planned to subpoena the surveillance footage.

“On June 23, Trump – who was in Bedminster for the summer – called Oliveira, and the pair had a 24-minute conversation,” according to the Daily Mail.

The DOJ filed the subpoena the following day.

“Trump was then in the midst of a hive of activity. His attorney emailed him discussing handing over the footage, and Trump summoned Nauta to see him. Following their meeting, Nauta then changed his travel plans: he was due to go to Illinois with Trump, but instead flew down to Florida,” the Daily Mail notes.

Once Nauta arrived back at Mar-a-Lago, he and Oliveira reportedly met up and inspected the surveillance cameras.

Then on June 27th, Oliveira met with the unnamed IT director, told him to keep their conversation quiet, and then asked how long Mar-a-Lago’s computer servers would retain captured surveillance footage.

When the IT director said 45 days, Oliveira then told them “that ‘the boss‘ wanted the server deleted,” the indictment notes.

The IT director reportedly replied that “he would not know how to do that, and that he did not believe he would have the rights to do that.” He added that Oliveira would need to speak with the security supervisor.

It's pretty basic legal 101 that one does not destroy evidence, particularly when one knows that it will be subpoenaed.

Trump denies ordering deletion of Mar-a-Lago security tapes
Rachel Schilke


Former President Donald Trump directly denied that he ordered security tapes at Mar-a-Lago to be deleted, after special counsel Jack Smith attached three new charges to the now 40-count federal indictment related to Trump's handling of classified documents.

Smith dropped the additional charges of obstruction of justice on Thursday night. The former president adamantly denied on Sunday morning that he asked any members of his team to get rid of videos from the tapes at his Florida home.

"MAR-A-LAGO SECURITY TAPES WERE NOT DELETED. THEY WERE VOLUNTARILY HANDED OVER TO THE THUGS, HEADED UP BY DERANGED JACK SMITH. WE DID NOT EVEN GO TO COURT TO STOP THEM FROM GETTING THESE TAPES. I NEVER TOLD ANYBODY TO DELETE THEM. PROSECUTORIAL FICTION & MISCONDUCT! ELECTION INTERFERENCE!" Trump posted on Truth Social.

Smith's new charges against Trump stem from allegations that Trump aide Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira, a Mar-a-Lago maintenance worker, attempted to delete security footage that investigators sought from the resort.

De Oliveria allegedly told another employee that "the boss" wanted the server "deleted" on June 27, 2022, less than two months before the FBI raid that recovered hundreds of classified documents in Trump's storage room and other areas of the estate.

Trump said on Friday that his team turned over the tapes to the Justice Department, stating, "I'm not even sure what they're saying."
