Former US President Donald Trump has revealed that his legal camp has been informed that he’s been indicted over classified documents retrieved by FBI agents at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

Trump made the announcement on his Truth Social account, a social media site he owns.

Spanning over three posts, Trump railed against the indictment, calling it politically motivated and a “DARK DAY” for the United States.

“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware,” Trump wrote.

Trump is being investigated for his handling of classified documents after he left the White House and obstruction of justice. Last year, the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago estate, seizing thousands of documents, some of which had classified markings.

The US Department of Justice has not confirmed Trump’s indictment.

Trump says he has been summoned to appear at a Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday at 3 PM.

“I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States,” Trump wrote, adding “I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!”

Trump asserts that he received “far more votes than any sitting President in the History of our Country,” adding that he is leading in the polls against “all Candidates, both Democrat and Republican.”

His comments echo Newsmax Columnist Michael Shannon, who told Sputnik earlier on Thursday that the indictment and everything surrounding it was politically motivated.

“This is all part of the process to indict Trump and make it difficult — if not impossible — for him to run for reelection,” Shannon told Sputnik. “The entire investigation, raid on Mar–a–Lago and subsequent developments are entirely political and constitute a genuine attack on democracy.”

Like Trump, Shannon also pointed out that President Joe Biden also had classified documents at his residences and offices from his time as Vice President during the Barack Obama administration.

US Media reporter Jonathan Karl says that Trump has been indicted on seven accounts. It is unknown what specific charges Trump will face but another journalist, Katherine Faulders stated, citing unnamed sources, that it will include the willful retention of national defense information, corruptly concealing documents, conspiracy to obstruct justice, false statements and other still unknown charges.

“This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America,” Trump wrote. “We are a Country in serious and rapid Decline, but together we will Make America Great Again!”

The former President has faced multiple and piling legal issues since leaving office. In late March, he was indicted in New York on more than 30 counts related to business fraud. He was also found liable of sexual assault in a civil case stemming from an encounter with a New York City columnist in the early 1990s.

There are other cases that are still under investigation which may result in more charges for Trump. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is looking into his role in providing hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels who alleged she had an affair with Trump. Prosecutors are looking into those payments to see if they violated campaign finance regulations.

And Atlanta-area District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating alleged efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 Presidential election in that state.
