    Trump Is Fucked

    Trump captured on tape acknowledging he kept a classified document on Iran -CNN

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors have a 2021 audio recording of former President Donald Trump acknowledging he kept a classified Pentagon document about a possible attack on Iran after leaving the White House, CNN reported on Wednesday.

    CNN did not listen to the recording but cited unidentified multiple sources describing it. Reuters was not able to confirm the report.

    The recording shows Trump, who is seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, understood he retained classified material after he left the White House in 2021, according to the cable television network.

    Trump’s remarks indicated he would like to share the information but was aware of the limitations on his ability to declassify documents after leaving office, two sources told CNN.

    A Trump representative did not immediately return a request for comment. Peter Carr, the spokesman for Special Counsel Jack Smith's office at the Justice Department, also did not immediately comment.

    Smith is investigating Trump's handling of classified documents, as well as efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

    Cheeto Indicted. AGAIN.

    Donald Trump indicted for second time, in classified documents investigation: Sources
    ABC News


    Former President Donald Trump has been indicted for a second time, this time on federal charges in relation to his handling of classified information while out of office, sources familiar confirm to ABC News.

    He is set to be arraigned in federal court in Miami on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET, sources said.

    “We’re learning from our sources that there appears to be at least seven counts here. This ranges from everything from the willful retention of national defense information to conspiracy to a scheme to conceal to false statements and representations," ABC News' Katherine Faulders reported during a special report on the network.

    In a statement on social media, Trump wrote that he had been told of the indictment and insisted the case was a "hoax." He has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

    He wrote that he is "INNOCENT."

    The unprecedented federal indictment of a former president -- who already faces a criminal case in New York City that he denies and who is the current front-runner for the Republican Party's nomination for the White House in 2024 -- further underlines what are potentially the most consequential prosecutions in U.S. history, with implications both global and domestic.

    Experts say that a current U.S. government criminally prosecuting its former leader and current leading opposition party candidate upends long-held norms and could test the nation's democratic system in a manner that stretches far beyond the merits of the case itself.

    The federal probe has been led by special counsel Jack Smith, who was tapped by Attorney General Merrick Garland in November to oversee the Department of Justice's investigation into Trump's handling of classified documents after leaving office.

    Smith is also overseeing the investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

    Central to Smith's efforts in the classified documents probe is determining whether lawyers who represented the former president falsely certified in response to a grand jury subpoena that Trump had returned all classified records to the government, or whether Trump himself sought to conceal records that he might have unlawfully retained.

    As ABC News previously reported, prosecutors in the special counsel's office have presented compelling preliminary evidence that Trump knowingly and deliberately misled his own attorneys about his retention of classified material after leaving office in early 2021, according to sources who described the contents of a sealed filing from a top federal judge.

    In early 2022, sources told ABC News, National Archives officials asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump's handling of White House records after the National Archives in January retrieved 15 boxes of records from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida that had been improperly taken in violation of the Presidential Records Act.

    The DOJ probe hit a critical point on Aug. 8, 2022, when Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida was searched by FBI agents.

    Federal investigators seized more than 100 documents with classified markings during the search, according to an unsealed detailed inventory list. From Trump‘s office alone, there were 43 empty folders seized with classified banners.

    The property inventory list also showed that agents gathered more than 11,000 documents or photographs without classification markings, all of which were described as property of the U.S. government.

        Could be very bad news for the Democrats though. Maybe the only person that Biden can be sure of beating at this point is Trump...

          Seven federal charges.

          One of them is under the Espionage Act.

                Guess you guys haven't checked the polls lately. All this stuff is doing, is making Trump even more popular.

                  It's ironic that the more the establishment/left piles on Trump... it drives his popularity up.

                  Too soon to say with confidence but the odds of seeing a Biden v Trump rematch in November 2024 are falling measurably. My instincts tell me we may see neither win the nomination.

                    Regarding the Manhattan indictment, 41 percent of independents and 44 percent overall view the alleged crime as serious and also say it would be disqualifying.

                    Those numbers go up to 49 percent and 50 percent, respectively, in the classified documents case.

                    That’s nearly half of voters who, to the extent the case is proved in their minds, say Trump would be disqualified.
                    New data suggests a classified documents indictment is more problematic for him than his previous, hush money indictment, with half of Americans saying a conviction would be disqualifying.


                    And it ain't gonna get better. Enabling, sheep dipshits notwithstanding...

                        Has anyone found out what the Saudis paid Kushner $2 billion dollars for?

                        What did they get for that? Access to his brilliance?

                          Well Trump's attack on Iran war plans "disappeared". Someone is going to jail, maybe not drumpf, but one of his lawyers. Maybe that's what Jared sold?...

                            Criminal defendant Trump will be arrested on Tuesday no thanks to Obama and he will have his passport confiscated. Now would be a good time for Melania & Barron to head off to Slovenia - the proven sexual abuser won't be able to follow them.
