Trump traveling to Florida as history-making court appearance approaches in classified docs case

June 12, 2023

Trump’s Tuesday afternoon appearance in Miami will mark his second time since April facing a judge on criminal charges. Ahead of his court date, he and his allies have been escalating efforts to undermine the criminal case against him and drum up protests. After his court appearance, he will return to New Jersey, where he’s scheduled a press event to publicly respond to the charges. Trump supporters were also planning to load buses to head to Miami from other parts of Florida, raising concerns for law enforcement officials who are preparing for the potential of unrest around the courthouse. The Justice Department unsealed Friday an indictment charging Trump with 37 felony counts, 31 relating to the willful retention of national defense information.
