The charging documents include assertions that the “classified documents Trump stored in his boxes included information regarding defense and weapons capabilities of both the United States and foreign country; United States nuclear programs; potential vulnerabilities of the United States and its allies to military attack; and plans for possible retaliation in response to a foreign attack.”

“The unauthorized disclosure of these classified documents could put at risk the national security of the United States, foreign relations, the safety of the United States military, and human sources and the continued viability of sensitive intelligence collection methods,” the charging document added.
