A man slated to be a delegate for Donald Trump has been indicted on child pornography and other charges, according to officials, NBC News reported. 

The Department of Justice announced Thursday that Caleb Andrew Bailey of Waldorf, Maryland, was indicted by a federal grand jury. Bailey is charged with using a minor to produce child pornography as well as possessing child pornography. 

Officials also charged him with illegal possession of a machine gun and illegal transportation of explosives. 

A spokesman for the Maryland Republican Party told NBC News the person named in the DOJ report was the same person slated to be a Trump delegate. Bailey won the slot by being directly elected on Maryland's ballot last month. 

"We strongly condemn these allegations and leave it in the capable hands of law enforcement," spokesman Hope Hicks said Thursday. "He will be replaced immediately."
