(RepublicanDaily.org) – Analysts have speculated on whether former President Donald Trump’s “smoking gun” is going to come out, following reports that Trump staff “moved boxes” before the raid of Mar-a-Lago estates in Palm Beach, Florida by federal agents, 1945 reported. Trump reportedly could be in a “world of trouble” since the discovery that two of his employees moved boxes from Mar-a-Lago, 1945 reported.
At the time of this report, it was “unclear” what items the moved boxes contained, CBS News reported. Reportedly, an employee of Trump told investigators that the former president had “directed” his staff to move the boxes, CBS News reported. The former president reportedly had directed the employee to move even the boxes that “might contain classified markings,” and had ordered the boxes moved both “before and after” the Justice Department conducted its search. CBS wrote that the report of a first-hand witness providing information about the moved boxes was first reported by The Washington Post and reports that the boxes had been moved were first reported by The New York Times. Video footage of boxes being handled in Mar-a-Lago is now in the custody of investigators, CBS News reported.
Trump has been accused of the unauthorized possession and handling of “33 boxes” of classified documents. On May 26, media reports stated that federal prosecutors had obtained evidence Trump had shown the classified documents “to people,” The Guardian reported. The alleged action could reportedly put Trump at risk of action under The Espionage Act, which prohibits “willfully communicating,” the contents of highly classified documents to individuals who do not have clearance, The Guardian reported.
Since the series of Trump investigations began, the media has been touting a “smoking gun” that would be released and lead to Trump’s federal indictment. Reportedly, Trump’s “culpability,” was revealed by “one smoking gun” in the January 6 plot, Newsweek reported in December 2022.
Other smoking guns that have been commented on include Trump’s passports, which, in August 2022, due to their location “revealed” that Trump had “unauthorized retention” of some documents that had the highest level of classifications, Daily Beast reported.
