Helping the boss hide stuff is gonna cost Carlos De Oliveira, who ain’t gonna get the same treatment as a ex-President from the Feds….Did this guy lie to the FBI and get caught?
Federal prosecutors investigating former President Donald J. Trump on charges of illegally handling classified documents unsealed charges on Thursday against a new defendant — a maintenance worker at Mar-a-Lago, Mr. Trump’s private club and residence in Florida, according to court records.
The worker, Carlos De Oliveira, who is the head of maintenance at the property and also once parked cars there, was charged with conspiracy to obstruct efforts to retrieve the documents. He was joined to a pre-existing indictment filed in Florida last month accusing Mr. Trump and the aide, Walt Nauta, of a conspiracy to obstruct the government’s repeated attempts to retrieve the material.
Mr. De Oliveira’s lawyer, John Irving, declined to comment.
The charges came as Mr. Trump’s lawyers met in the Washington office of Jack Smith, the special counsel overseeing the inquiries into the former president, to discuss a target letter suggesting that the former president might soon face a second indictment related to a separate case: his effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Mr. De Oliveira first came to the attention of prosecutors as they investigated the response by Mr. Trump to repeated efforts by federal officials to retrieve reams of presidential records and classified material, including national defense material, that Mr. Trump had taken with him from the White House to Mar-a-Lago…..
