Donald Trump indicted over classified documents case

Former US President Donald Trump has been charged over his handling of classified documents after he left the White House.

Mr Trump, 76, faces seven charges including unauthorised retention of classified files, US media reported.

Last year, Mr Trump's Florida resort Mar-a-Lago was searched and 11,000 documents were seized, including around 100 marked as classified.

There were reports last week that prosecutors had obtained an audio recording of Mr Trump in which he acknowledged keeping a classified document after leaving the White House.

Mr Super noted that Mr Trump could continue to run for office even if convicted in the documents case.

Mr Trump became the first former president to be charged with a crime this April, after he pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records over a hush-money payment to a porn star.
