Trump pleads not guilty to all 37 charges at Miami courthouse
Trump's arraignment is taking place in federal court in Miami
Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to all 37 charges at the Miami courthouse during his arraignment on Tuesday.
He stayed at his property in Doral on Monday evening.
Trump was charged with 37 counts for his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The arraignment took place at 3 p.m.
Federal, state and local authorities beefed up security at the courthouse in advance of the 2024 GOP presidential primary candidate's appearance.
Protests had formed outside of the courthouse on Tuesday.
Cameras were reportedly banned from the courtroom for the arraignment.
Alina Habba, one of former President Trump's lawyers said the targeted “prosecution of a leading political opponent is the type of thing you see in dictatorships like Cuba and Venezuela.”
”It is commonplace there for rival candidates to be prosecuted, persecuted, and put into jail,” she said on Tuesday.
