US authorities have charged former US President Donald Trump and his aide Walt Nauta with 38 counts of improper storage of classified documents. As follows from the indictment, in the additional list of possible punitive sanctions against Trump, 37 points are indicated, in relation to his assistant – 6.
In addition, the defendants are charged with perjury and criminal conspiracy.
According to TASS, the charges against Trump include a long prison term – up to 400 years in total, as well as fines. At the same time, none of the charges brought against Trump provides for a minimum term of imprisonment or a minimum fine.
However, the charges against Trump do not include sanctions in the form of a ban on holding public office. Thus, Trump has the right to be elected to the presidency and to hold this position.
As noted in the indictment, Trump kept secret documents, which, among other things, contained information about the US nuclear programs.
