(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Monday. the National Archives announced an event for the naturalization of two dozen people in celebration of the Bill of Rights. In the press release, they announced that the ceremony would take place on December 15 at 10 a.m. with the event being headlined by former first lady Melania Trump.
According to the release the event will be held in the National Archives Rotunda where in front of the United States’ founding documents and Constitution, 25 people, all from different nations are going to be sworn in and become citizens.
Trump, who is from Slovenia, is the second first lady in U.S. history to have not been born within the United States. Her headlining of this event is particularly noteworthy as previously her husband had legal issues with the National Archives.
Following the end of his presidency, the National Archives had for months attempted to retrieve the documents that were stored at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. In January 2022, there were 15 boxes full of documents taken from Mar-a-Lago. Following this initial recovery, the Archives requested the Department of Justice (DOJ) to examine the handling of documents by Trump. As a result of that investigation, in August of that year, a search warrant allowed the FBI to raid Mar-a-Lago where they recovered hundreds of classified documents.
Donald Trump is facing Espionage Act charges following the recovery of the item that is connected to his refusal to return the classified documents after the Archive’s original request. Additionally, he is facing obstruction of justice charges connected to his efforts to conceal the documents from prosecutors.
Trump’s trial has been set to start on May 20.
