Report: Smoking Gun Uncovered, Trump in Tape Transcript Admitted He Didn’t Declassify “Secret Information…Look, look at this”


You know that the 7 charge indictment brought against Donald Trump last night is not about any of the terrible things while in office.

No, the charges stem from him removing classified documents from the White House and storing them at Mar-a-Lago after he lost the 2020 election.

Trump insisted that all the documents he had in his possession were “declassified.”

But now Paula Reid on CNN has discovered a transcript of a 2021 tape recording in which Trump admits he didn’t declassify “secret” military information. It’s the smoking gun in this absurd saga that will lead to his conviction and imprisonment.

“As president, I could have declassified, but now I can’t,” Trump says, according to the transcript.

The bloviating buffoon is showing the document to people in his office. He says, according to CNN, “Secret. This is secret information. Look, look at this. This was done by the military and given to me.”

Congrats to Paula Reid, who valiantly sat through the pandemic in the press room for CBS News and was not appreciated by them.
