Waltine 'Walt' Nauta - Trump's coke valet

One of Waltine 'Walt' Nauta's duties was to bring Trump a Diet Coke when he pressed a call button on his desk. When Trump's presidency ended, Nauta followed him to Mar-a-Lago. He was put on the payroll for Trump’s Save America PAC, making about $135k a year. The Washington Post previously reported that an unnamed Trump employee provided critical evidence to federal investigators, telling them that he moved boxes at Trump's request at a time when government officials sought the return of classified materials from Mar-a-Lago. The New York Times then reported that security footage showed Nauta moving boxes from a Mar-a-Lago storage room that became the focus of the investigation. They reported that Nauta is represented by Trump's Stanley Woodward Jr.

Trump's political action committee is paying legal bills for key witnesses in the Justice Department probe, including Nauta.
