Former president Donald Trump, the first commander-in-chief to be impeached twice, now suffers the infamy of the first to bear two criminal indictments.

Trump first former commander-in-chief indicted on Federal criminal charges

Former President Donald Trump has been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with his mishandling of more than 100 classified documents. The indicted against Trump, his second, came down June 8.

Trump, who first revealed the news earlier on June 8 in a post on his Truth Social platform, faces 37 counts, according to his lawyer and another source. The charges include false statements, conspiracy to obstruct and a charge related to the Espionage Act, sources said.

A federal grand jury in Florida has been meeting in special counsel Jack Smith's investigation of Trump’s handling of classified documents, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The Florida grand jury is separate from a panel that was convened in Washington, D.C. The investigation began last year when the National Archives alerted the FBI that government documents Trump had returned after having been out of office for about a year included 184 that were marked classified. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.
