Failed former President Donald Trump is now under criminal investigation for possible violations of the Espionage Act, concealment of documents, and obstruction of justice. The FBI warrant has been released, which approved the search of his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida and the seizure of eleven boxes of classified documents. Among the documents in Trump’s possession included papers with the “TS/SCI” mark, indicating a high level of government classification. Just because Trump is being investigated for possible Espionage Act violations doesn’t mean he’s accused of being a spy, as refusal to return highly sensitive documents to authorities can fall under this umbrella as well. Conviction of the three crimes Trump is being investigated for can result in fines and up to 33 years in prison. The former president’s political luck has turned ever since losing the 2020 election, and his circumstances could soon get a lot worse.
