On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump entered a not guilty plea in a Miami federal courtroom.

Trump is facing 37 federal accusations, including illegally keeping government secrets and attempting to obstruct justice, in an extraordinary indictment of a former president.

The charges against Trump include that he physically assisted in packing the files as he left the White House in 2021, boasted about having access to top-secret documents,

Walt Nauta, one of his assistants, has also been charged with obstructing justice and making false claims. Tuesday saw no plea from Nauta.
