Former President Donald Trump plans to testify that an allegation by prosecutors that he acted with an alleged co-conspirator to delete security footage is false.

In July, the Justice Department filed a superseding indictment in the case over Trump’s handling of classified documents after leaving office that accused Trump of working with the property manager to delete surveillance footage at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Asked about the charge by Kristen Welker on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump called the allegation “false.”

“Would you testify to that under oath?” Welker asked.

“Sure, I’m going to — I’ll testify,” Trump said.

The former president went on to claim that there was “nothing done” to the security tapes in question.

“And, they were my tapes. I could have fought them,” Trump continued. “I didn’t even have to give them the tapes, I don’t think. I think I would have won in court. When they asked for the tapes, I said, ‘Sure.’ They’re my tapes. I could have fought them. I didn’t even have to give them. Just so you understand, though, we didn’t delete anything. Nothing was deleted.”

The superseding indictment filed in July brought the total number of counts in the case against the former president to 40. 

Trump has pleaded not guilty in the case, which is set to go to trial in Florida next May.

  1. I am wondering where it says we MUST keep our private surveillance video tapes for any period of time?? It is MY home security system and while I might share it with law enforcement I am NOT required to do so.

    • Don’t waste your time sharing your private surveillance video tapes with globalist puppet, god worshiping, demonrat criminal party since they refuse to arrest their globalist puppet, god worshiping, demonrat criminal voters and they will arrest you for videotaping their globalist puppet, god worshiping, demonrat criminal voters committing their crime .

  2. Correct me if I’m wrong but did not the doj go in and make sure all the cameras turned off so they couldn’t get caught doing what they were doing. Now they’re trying to say Trump destroyed evidence well if they were turned off there’s no evidence

  3. It was my understanding that the FBI ordered the surveillance cameras turned off during the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Of course the Trump people didn’t do that. Now the DOJ is upset because some of these tapes MAY have been erased. HYPOCRiCY at its best.
