another bomb inside Donald Trump Classified Documents Case! Is it the smoking gun though? nail in the coffin?
In short, since there are so many legal threats to Trump these days… last year we found out national archives He had spent months trying to recover documents from the former POTUS, since he originally left office. If he had returned them now it wouldn’t have been a problem – as if it weren’t for VP mike pence or for the president Joe Biden, Both had several doctors in private homes, where they should not have gone. But look, Trump’s team would have gone astray and outright lied about having the documents.
RELATED: Trump allegedly practiced hiding documents from the FBI
This much FBI Had to call in — they raided Mar-a-Lago, the former president’s resort in Palm Beach, Florida, and found dozens of classified documents there, more than anyone in the press realized, that’s for sure. What’s more, these were top secret documents, some of which were of such high status that they were never allowed to leave the special reading room. We’re talking about national defense documents, nuclear secrets — things that a private individual, even a former president, didn’t even have access to. The kind of thing that gets people accused of espionage! This had obviously never happened to a former president before, so the government was the velvet glove here. DOJ A special counsel is tapped to lead the investigation, and goodness leads to some shocking events…
OK, so here’s the latest: CNN has learned that one of the “most important” evidence in the case is another leaked tape – instead of just talking about being inappropriate with women, he talks about stealing some national security secrets. Multiple sources told the news organization that as of July 2021, federal prosecutors have received audio from Trump admitting he has top secret documents — and admitting he knows he shouldn’t! This is important, keep it in mind.
In a meeting at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump speaks to a room full of aides, as well as two writers who worked on the former chief of staff, according to sources. mark meadowsReminiscences, that he had a Pentagon document he knows he can no longer have. Apparently, he tells them, the document describes a possible US attack on Iran.
What is the actual effect?!
This is what we mean when we talk about national secrets. Imagine how valuable this would be to the government of Iran or to private contractors who could do work for them! Of course it has no value to anyone else. So why would he want to? Except maybe bragging? Remember when we heard Trump showed classified documents to Mar-a-Lago visitors? It’s a really stupid reason to risk national defense, much more stupid than paying billions of dollars – but that doesn’t make it No Violation of Espionage Act. According to sources, no one in that room had a security clearance that would have given them access to classified information, let alone of this level.
Apparently, Meadows’ ghostwriters took notes, too. There appears to be one meeting specifically mentioned in his autobiography – it states that Trump recalled “a four-page report” from the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. mark miley outlining his “plan to attack Iran, which would involve deploying massive numbers of troops, something he has blamed on President Trump on more than one occasion during his presidency.” Very good.
By the way, btw – this is one of many documents…
what does this prove
First, it is evidence that he knew he had a top secret document, that it was not taken by mistake. Second, since he mentions keeping it even though he shouldn’t have, it’s proof he knew he was doing something wrong! So when the National Archives came calling, he knew he had to return it!
Third, and this is a big one, he specifically mentions during the meeting that the document is still classified. Why is that important?
Well, Trump’s main argument against criminal charges in this case is that he did nothing wrong because he did unclassified All the stuff – he just didn’t tell anyone. To remind? he said to friend sean hannity He could do it with his mind on prime time TV:
“There should be no process, as I understand it. You’re the President of the United States, you can release just by saying it’s released, even thinking about it.
First of all, it’s not true – and it would make him sound like an idiot if he actually believed it.
But this seems to be proof that he never believed the BS! two sources said CNN That Trump says plainly on this tape that he “wants to share with him the information in the document,” but knows he cannot release it because he is no longer president.
If in the summer of 2021 he admits it’s still a secret and he kept it even though he shouldn’t, and he knew he couldn’t declassify This, it’s almost the whole ball game, isn’t it?
The most obvious lawsuit against Trump here has always been obstruction of justice. After all, it seemed pretty clear since the FBI raid that the former POTUS was lying about returning all the classified documents. obstruction is all about proving the suspect knew They were guilty of a crime – that’s why they hid it. It looks like a smoking gun, doesn’t it?
What do you think of this latest evidence? Will it make a difference to Teflon Don?
