In shocking news, Trump tape transcript reveals former president allegedly did not declassify ‘secret information.’
In breaking news, the Trump tape transcript reveals a bombshell about the president admitting to not declassifying secret information. HOLR breaks it all down below.
This past Thursday, the former president, Donald Trump, was indicted on several counts. This investigation centered around the mishandling of classified documents. He is now the “first former president in U.S. history to face criminal charges by the federal government that he once oversaw,” as mentioned here.
According to this recent article by CNN, back in 2021, Trump acknowledged on tape in a meeting that he had retained “secret” military information. However, he had not declassified it. This is in accordance with a transcript of the reported audio recording obtained by CNN. These are Trump’s alleged words regarding the situation:
“As president, I could have declassified, but now I can’t.”
As mentioned in the article, the public is currently unaware of the details of the indictment. As noted here, Trump has been indicted on federal charges regarding an ongoing classified documents investigation. In reference to the tape transcript that recently came to light, as CNN reveals, this tape offers an “understanding” that “the records he had with him at Mar-a-Lago after he left the White House remained classified.”
This TikTok video posted by user @philipdefranco demonstrates the details of what we know so far regarding Trump’s indictment:
Trump Indicted… Again #usa #america A federal grand jury has indicted Donald Trump on at least 7 counts in classified documents probe. This includes willful retention of national security material, obstruction, conspiracy, scheme to conceal, and false statements. He has been ordered to appear in court in Miami on Tuesday. Trump says this is a dark day for the United States. This is now the second criminal case he’s on trial for, but the first federal case. Trump claims he’s innocent and that he never thought that this could happen even though this literally happened like.. two months ago. Trump is right though, it is a dark day for this country. If they can indict Trump for taking classified documents to his house that he knew were classified and that he refused to give back and that he lied about giving back then they can indict ANYONE for doing that.
This was Trump’s alleged response to his Federal indictment announcement:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax. I have been summoned to appear at the Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday, at 3 PM. I never thought it possible that such a thing could happen to a former President of the United States … I AM AN INNOCENT MAN! “This is indeed a DARK DAY for the United States of America. We are a Country in serious and rapid Decline, but together we will Make America Great Again!”
