On July 27, Special Counsel Jack Smith charged a third defendant, Carlos De Oliveira, in the case of United States v. Donald Trump and Waltine Nauta in a superseding indictment. The indictment describes De Oliveira as the property manager at The Mar-a-Lago Club.
The superseding indictment also brought two additional charges against former President Donald Trump and four extra charges for co-defendant Nauta, including allegations that the defendants attempted to delete security camera footage at Mar-a-Lago to prevent it from being provided to a grand jury in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1512(b)(2)(B). It also added a new Count 32 under 18 U.S.C. § 793(e), adding one more count of unlawful retention of National Defense Information against Trump.
