( – Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated that the Department of Justice’s indictment against former President Donald Trump shows that he had a “maligned intent” when retaining all the documents that were recovered from his Mar-a-Lago estate following the end of his term in office. Schiff had previously served as an impeachment manager during Trump’s first impeachment trial.

On Friday during an interview with MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, Schiff called the indictment “stunning” especially because of the high level of details that was included. He added that the indictment shows that Trump had not been acting in good faith when it came to the document, which he notes as particularly important, as intent is usually the hardest thing to prove.

He proceeded to state that in this case, through the recorded conversation and the instruction given to Trump’s aides, it becomes clear what his intentions were from the start.

Following the indictment, Schiff argued that special counsel Jack Smith did not have a difficult decision to make when choosing to indict Trump because of how “powerful” the evidence was. The indictment was unsealed on Friday and points to Trump’s multiple attempts at blocking federal authorities from accessing and reclaiming the documents he had kept following his exit from the White House.

In the document, there is also the transcript of a conversation Trump had with his attorneys about possibly ignoring the subpoena that had been sent by the federal government about retrieving the classified documents. It is also noted that some of the documents Trump had held on to included military plans, and information about the nuclear capabilities of many of the country’s enemies.
