After the ex-POTUS' former aide Walt Nauta was indicted on Friday, June 9, in special counsel Jack Smith's investigation into the mishandling of classified documents, Trump took to Truth Social to blast federal investigators and once again accuse them of political bias.
"I have just learned that the 'Thugs' from the Department of Injustice will be Indicting a wonderful man, Walt Nauta, a member of the U.S. Navy, who served proudly with me in the White House, retired as Senior Chief, and then transitioned into private life as a personal aide," the controversial politician wrote on his social media platform on Friday morning.
"He has done a fantastic job! They are trying to destroy his life, like the lives of so many others, hoping that he will say bad things about 'Trump.' He is strong, brave, and a Great Patriot," Trump continued, before aggressively claiming: "The FBI and DOJ are CORRUPT!"

"For purposes of fighting the Greatest Witch Hunt of all time, now moving to the Florida Courts, I will be represented by Todd Blanche, Esq., and a firm to be named later. I want to thank Jim Trusty and John Rowley for their work, but they were up against a very dishonest, corrupt, evil, and 'sick' group of people, the likes of which has not been seen before," Trump ranted.
