Former President Donald Trump’s newest co-defendant in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case was released on bond Monday.
Carlos de Oliveira was released on a $100,000 bond after an initial court appearance Monday, according to The Hill. He is facing obstruction of justice charges as well as charges for making false statements to investigators.
De Oliveira was named as a co-conspirator in the case in a Thursday superseding indictment that accused the Mar-a-Lago property manager of coordinating with Trump to attempt to delete security camera footage that showed him and another defendant in the case, Walt Nauta, moving boxes in and out of a storage room.
Trump accused the Justice Department of “prosecutorial misconduct” in a statement to Fox News. (RELATED: Special Counsel Charges Third Defendant, Adds Additional Charges in Document Case)
“It’s election interference at the highest level,” Trump told Fox News Digital just after he learned of the latest indictment. “They’re harassing my company, they’re harassing my family and by far, least importantly of all, they’re harassing me.”
Trump told Fox News Digital that “the charges are ridiculous, and they know it better than anyone.”
“This is prosecutorial misconduct used at a level never seen before,” Trump said. “If I weren’t leading Biden by a lot in numerous polls, and wasn’t going to be the Republican nominee, it wouldn’t be happening. It wouldn’t be happening.”
He added: “But I am way up as a Republican and way up in the general election and this is what you get.”
