Trump pleaded ‘not guilty’ before the US magistrate judge Jonathan Goodman in the federal court of Miami.

Experts analyzing the case have stated that this case’s trial will take place after a year. This means the trial will not take place before the 2024 presidential race. 

While the case was brought in the federal court, Trump was observed to maintain silence and did not speak during the 47 minutes hearing. 

On the other hand, Trump was given permission to leave the court without any travel restrictions or conditions. However, the judge ruled that he would not be given permission to speak with any witnesses of the case.

Aide of Trump, Walt Nauta, who has been charged alongside the ex-president, will not be entering the plea until 27th June. The sole reason behind this is his inability to get represented by a local lawyer. 

Nauta, too has been released without postage on any bonds and has been advised not to communicate with any witnesses associated with the case. 

This was the second courtroom appearance for Trump as he was first seen appearing in court in New York regarding the case of providing hush money to a porn star. 

Donald Trump is also the first US president who has been convicted of federal charges. 

Authorities in Miami are readily preparing for the possible occurrence of violence. This is due to the recall of the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol. However, the mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez, has stated that no security issues have been raised due to Trump’s visit to the state. 

Donald Trump has been seen to proclaim his innocence on a repeated basis. He has also accused the current president of the US, Joe Biden, of intentionally targeting him before the 2024 presidential elections. 

Trump has also commented during a meeting with his supporters that the “United States is rigged, corrupt and in decline.” 

Moreover, Trump has been noted to have 37 indictments against him for the purpose of lying to officials regarding the illegal possession of national security papers. The indictment has also stated that Trump and Nauta have conspired together for the purpose of hiding the papers from investigators. 

Due to this, Trump has been charged with the provisions of the Espionage Act. This is because he has violated the provision of illegal possession of documents related to national security. 

The expanded charges have been charged against Trump for the purpose of the documents. The documents that are illegally possessed by Trump include information regarding a secret nuclear project, which can be a threat to national security. 

Legal experts have stated the pieces of evidence against Trump are strong. As he is 77 years old, the trial will be a speedy affair to effectively rule out judgment for the case.
