Former President Donald Trump arrived in Miami on Monday ahead of his first court appearance to face federal charges related to retaining sensitive military secrets. However, he has not yet secured a local lawyer, which may result in a shortened appearance. Trump’s previous attorneys resigned after his indictment was announced. He named Todd Blanche as his representative, but Blanche is not admitted to appear in the Southern District of Florida. Trump is facing a 37-count federal indictment, marking the first time a former U.S. president has been charged with a federal crime. He traveled from his New Jersey golf resort, and it is unclear if his wife, Melania Trump, will accompany him to court. Trump posted on his social media platform, Truth Social, discussing his plans for a second term and criticizing the justice system and Republicans who did not endorse him. Preparations for potential protests are underway in Miami, but there are no specific threats identified at the moment. Trump is expected to return to New Jersey after his court appearance and attend a campaign fundraiser. He maintains his innocence, but the indictment details his willful retention of national defense information and attempts to obstruct justice. The documents contained classified information that could jeopardize national security and intelligence operations.
