Documentos que levam a indidicar Trump

By Duncan Mil

June 12, 2023 - A indiciação contra Donald Trump acusa-o de guardar 31 documentos classificados em áreas não seguras da sua residência na Florida. Os documentos foram produzidos por instituições como o Pentágono,
CIA, Agência de Segurança Nacional e Gabinete de Reconhecimento Nacional.

On August 8, 2022, the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, seizing 102 documents with classification markings -- 27 in Trump’s office and 75 in boxes in a store room.

According to the indictment, the documents included details about U.S. nuclear weapons, spy satellites and classified White House briefings.

The U.S. federal government has a relatively simple process for classifying documents, explains Bruce Riedel, a senior fellow and director of the Brookings Intelligence Project.

“The most sensitive documents are TOP SECRET Codeword documents. ”

Most State Department cables are SECRET. Some are CONFIDENTIAL, the lowest classification. Many of the most sensitive documents are marked NODIS, which stands for No Distribution, meaning only a named individual or selected persons can see the data. Another classification is NOFORN -- foreign governments cannot share the document. The indictment lists 22 of 31 documents as NOFORN.

“Presidents often have a temporary SCIF on their property or vacation homes,” explains Riedel.

A SCIF or “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” is a data centre or secure room that guards against electronic surveillance and suppresses sensitive military and security information data leakage.

However, Trump stored boxes of documents on the stage of Mar-a-Lago’s ballroom and in a storage area, where guests can select beach chairs and umbrellas.

Six of the 31 top-secret documents are marked TK, standing for Talent Keyhole -- a classification meaning data originated from U.S. spy satellites.
