Ten worst cases of espionage against America

Indictment says Trump lied and schemed to keep highly classified secrets

"The former president faces 37 criminal charges. His longtime valet, Walt Nauta, faces six charges. Trump stashed sensitive intelligence secrets in a bathroom, his bedroom and a ballroom at Mar-a-Lago, according to a scathing 49-page indictment unsealed Friday against him and a loyal servant who is accused of lying to cover up his boss’s alleged crimes.

The grand jury indictment tells a story of hubris and hypocrisy, describing a wealthy former president living among neck-high stacks of boxes with classified documents scattered inside them, sometimes literally spilling out of their containers. In the prosecutors’ telling, neither Trump nor any of his aides or lawyers appeared bothered by the sprawl of sensitive papers until government agents came calling. Then, the former commander in chief allegedly set out to hide some of what he had." - Washington Post

What is the Espionage Act?

"The section of the Espionage Act the DOJ has cited in its investigation against Trump, 18 U.S.C. §§ 793, makes it a crime to remove, copy or share national defense information, or to “willfully [retain]” national defense information and “[fail] to deliver it to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it”—which is specifically what Trump is expected to be charged with. Violations of that section of the law carry a punishment of a fine or a prison sentence of up to 10 years." - Forbes
