(TheRedWire.com) – Former President Donald Trump is set to discover who the two previously unnamed Mar-a-Lago employees who are being included in the superseding indictment are.
Lisa Rubin, an MSNBC legal analyst, and attorney, released a series of tweets stating that the Department of Justice had given Trump’s and his co-defendant Walt Nauta’s lawyers access to information related to the classified documents case.
Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office disclosed that the new evidence included CCTV footage from the Mar-a-Lago Club obtained in May 2023. Trump has often criticized Smith’s probe, arguing it was a politically motivated witch hunt. He further denied any wrongdoing related to this case and pleaded not guilty to all charges in this indictment.
The new evidence that relates to the superseded indictment reveals another three felony offenses filed against Trump, bringing the total charges for this case up to 40 from 37. As part of the new allegations, it is stated that Carlos De Oliveira, a Mar-a-Lago employee, had deleted the footage taken from the security cameras at the Florida resort.
In the new court filing, it was also revealed that prosecutors had provided access to all witness interviews that were in the government’s hands. Rubin argued that this means that if Trump and Nauta had not been made aware of who Trump Employees 3 and 5 were, then they have been told by Smith’s team who they were.
Previously the newly unsealed indictment only referred to the worker as “employee 3,” who had allegedly contacted Nauta on the day that Trump had been subpoenaed for access to the security camera footage.
