Trump’s first response after arraignment: ‘I’ve legal rights to keep all documents found at my residence’

The arraignment, though largely procedural in nature, was the latest in an unprecedented reckoning this year for Trump.

Hours after former US President Donald Trump became the first former president to face a judge on federal charges as he pleaded not guilty in a Miami courtroom, he lambasted his successor for allegedly imposing “bogus charges” on him and asserted under the Presidential Records Act, he has the legal right to keep all of the documents found in Mar-a-Lago. Notably, it’s a law that he and his lawyers and supporters have repeatedly mischaracterised.

He claimed that as US President, he enjoyed “unconstrained authority” to make decisions regarding the disposal of documents.
