Former President Donald Trump, who found himself entangled in legal troubles once again, said he won’t pull out of the 2024 race even if he is given a prison sentence. Here’s the full story.
The allegations stem from a cover-up at Mar-a-Lago, where he was accused of retaining classified documents and ordering the deletion of security footage during an FBI investigation.
He Denied It
Despite mounting evidence against him, Trump vehemently denies any wrongdoing and portrays himself as a victim of a political witch hunt.
Not Only Trump
Alongside Trump, two individuals are also implicated in the case: Carlos De Oliveira, a longtime Mar-a-Lago property manager, and an aide named Walt Nauta.
Tampering With Evidence
All three face charges related to tampering with evidence.
This Could Hurt His Presidential Bid
With the trial scheduled for May 2024, a conviction could significantly impact Trump’s potential presidential bid in the same year.
Is It All a Scheme?
Nonetheless, the former president remains steadfast in his belief of innocence, claiming that the charges are part of a larger effort to coerce his associates into making false statements against him.
He Won’t Back Out

If It’s Not in the Constitution It Doesn’t Count
Trump replied, “Not at all. There’s nothing in the Constitution to say that.”
He Defended His Associates
In defense of his two associates, De Oliveira and Nauta, Trump describes them as loyal and dedicated employees.
They’re Great People
He said, “These are two wonderful employees. They’ve been with me for a long time, and they’re great people, and they want to destroy their lives.”
Trump’s Supporters Are With Him
Trump’s Republican allies rallied around him, choosing to echo his talking points while sidestepping the core allegations.
