Alleged Pardon Promise to Co-Defendant Revealed in Trump’s Classified Documents Case

Alleged Pardon Promise to Co-Defendant Revealed in Trump’s Classified Documents Case

New court documents have revealed that a cooperating witness, identified as “Person 16,” informed the FBI in November 2022 that Walt Nauta, co-defendant in the federal classified documents case involving former President Donald Trump, was allegedly promised a pardon if Trump were to be reelected for a second term. The witness, described as a former Trump White House employee with free access to the Oval Office, shared this information with the bureau, expressing concerns about the politically motivated nature of the investigation.

According to heavily redacted FBI notes, Nauta was reportedly assured by individuals associated with Trump that the investigation would not progress and that it was merely “much ado about nothing.” Furthermore, Nauta was allegedly informed that even if he faced charges of lying to the FBI, Trump would pardon him in 2024.

The witness, however, declined to have their interview recorded, citing fears of potential reprisal. Despite being advised otherwise, “Person 16” accepted this risk, stating that recording the interview would pose a greater threat in the “Trump world.”

The court documents do not provide details on how the witness obtained knowledge of the alleged pardon plan or who relayed this information to Nauta. During Nauta’s previous interview with the FBI, he misled investigators about the location and movement of boxes containing classified White House documents at Mar-a-Lago, as per the Justice Department’s findings.
