Experts Fear Trump Indictment Imminent After Mar-a-Lago Employee Testimony

Donald Trump has certainly earned the nickname “Teflon Don”, as the continues to watch all manner of potential trouble slide right off of him.

The former President was a man in the crosshairs long before taking office, having made a living as a ruthless real estate tycoon in one of the most heartless cities on the planet.

Now that he’s made a splash politically, the amount of targets on his back has increased exponentially, with any number of “witch hunts” occurring within his professional ecosystem at any given time.

This week, after it was revealed that an employee at Trump Mar-a-Lago estate has been cooperating with a federal investigation into former President Trump, some legal experts believe that Trump’s chances of indictment are skyrocketing.

Fresh details about the politically charged Justice Department inquiry, reported by the Washington Post and others on Wednesday, revealed a Trump employee told federal investigators that Trump himself ordered the moving of boxes stocked with records following a May subpoena for classified material, and security footage corroborated the account.

Government investigators are working to determine whether Trump committed a host of crimes, including those engaged with the destruction of government documents, mishandling of classified information, and obstruction.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has dubiously claimed that he declassified all the records taken from his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. But this new reporting has given his naysayers more reason to suspect he’s vulnerable to an indictment.

Then came the reactions:

“There it is,” national security lawyer Bradley Moss tweeted.

“Between this and the testimony of Alex Cannon (to name just two recent developments) Trump’s MAL goose is cooked. As I have oft said, the issue is no longer the proof, but DOJ’s will. Trump worker told FBI about moving MAL boxes on Trump’s orders,” tweeted former Mueller “pit bull” prosecutor Andrew Weissmann.

“Astonishing level of evidence. That would convince jurors. Witnesses have told federal investigators: After subpoena for classified docs, ‘Trump told people to move boxes to his residence at the property’! ‘Corroborated by the security-camera footage,'” former Pentagon special counsel Ryan Goodman wrote on Twitter.

Goodman also pointed to court documents saying the Justice Department was investigating possible obstruction of justice. He specifically referenced a DOJ filing that claimed the federal agents uncovered evidence that documents had been concealed and moved from a storage room to hinder the investigation.

“The government also developed evidence that government records were likely concealed and removed from the Storage Room and that efforts were likely taken to obstruct the government’s investigation,” the passage in the filing said.

Charging a former President with a crime would be an unprecedented action, and would almost certainly reek of political intent should it occur as Trump was preparing for a 2024 presidential run.
