The Justice Department has a letter Trump’s attorney sent them that all the State secrets had been returned, this was in June, 2022. The Sedition Act is brutal, they catch you with State secrets, classified or not, any threat to the “national security”, there is a toaster in your future, if the Department of Justice chooses to act.

Trump has leverage that the usual victims of this act did not. Julian Assange published US State secrets, the Afghan/Iraq wars dirt, and he’s been charged by the D of J with the misuse of State secrets. Assange is an Australian, and published abroad, and he is still locked up, the Brits have him for the Feds, he is running out of appeals there, should be here soon. The Alien and Sedition Act is a plank walk, if applied.

Trump is guilty of not turning over State secrets, keeping them after they had been requested by subpoena. The search warrant found material that cooks Trump’s goose, if they have the will to cook it.

Trump has Trump nation, the Republicans in Congress, his leverage, the Justice Department has the Alien and Sedition Act of 1917, and an open and shut case, if they choose to use it. It is politics, after all.
