Amid heightened security and anticipated protests, former President Donald Trump is set to appear Tuesday in federal court in Miami to face charges he misled investigators and mishandled the country’s secrets.
Trump, 76, is scheduled to appear before a magistrate judge at 3 p.m. ET, when he’ll be arraigned alongside his co-defendant and aide, Walt Nauta, 40.
He’s not expected to make any public comments at the courthouse, and he is scheduled to deliver remarks at his estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Tuesday night. The event had originally been planned as a private fundraiser for his 77th birthday, which is Wednesday.
A transcript of the hearing will be released, likely soon after the hearing.
Last birthday as a free man, or just last birthday. I’m not picky.
