The judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s classified documents case denied a motion to dismiss some charges in the indictment on Monday.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon rejected Trump’s lawyers’ bid to throw out over six of the 41 counts in the case in which Trump is accused of illegally storing classified documents from the time he was president and conspiring to conceal sensitive files from the federal government.

Cannon, in his order, said that “the identified deficiencies, even if generating some arguable confusion, are either permitted by law, raise evidentiary challenges not appropriate for disposition at this juncture, and/or do not require dismissal even if technically deficient, so long as the jury is instructed appropriately and presented with adequate verdict forms as to each Defendants’ alleged conduct.”

Cannon, however, agreed with the defense’s request to strike down a paragraph from the indictment said to be prejudicial information that is not essential to the underlying charges.

Monday’s decision follows Cannon’s rejection of multiple motions to dismiss the case in the past. In one of the motions, the Republican presidential candidate’s legal team argued that Trump was authorized to hold on to the documents after he left the White House per the Presidential Records Act.

Aside from Cannon’s ruling, Trump’s attorneys submitted a separate motion to dismiss the entire classified documents case on Monday. According to them, “exculpatory evidence supporting one of the most basic defenses available to President Trump” was destroyed as the FBI agents who searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate did not preserve the original order in which the documents and other papers were arranged in the boxes seized from the estate.

In the motion, Trump lawyers, Todd Blanche, Chris Kise and Emil Bove wrote, “The Special Counsel’s Office has wrongfully alleged that President Trump was aware of the contents of boxes in August 2022, where those boxes were packed by others in the White House and moved to Florida in January 2021.”

“The fact that the allegedly classified documents were buried in boxes and comingled with President Trump’s personal effects from his first term in office strongly supported the defense argument that he lacked knowledge and culpable criminal intent with respect to the documents at issue,” they added.
