CNN broke bombshell reporting in the early hours of this morning, publishing a damning audio recording that hears disgraced former US President Donald J. Trump openly sharing top-secret, highly-classified government documents that he stole from the White House with biographers during a July 2021 meeting at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club.

In the damning recording, Donald Trump is heard admitting that he was holding a classified Pentagon document containing intel about a potential US attack against Iran that he stole from the White House upon the end of his presidency.

“These are the papers,” the ex-president is heard saying in the audio recording released by CNN, referencing what he indicated was a Pentagon document containing secret intel containing attack plans, while actively discussing those classified, confidential attack plans with biographers.

The former president can be heard cracking jokes and laughing with his aides, talking about former Sec. and 2016 opponent Hilary Clinton, as Trump declared that he would “lock her up” for having classified intel on her home email server.

“Hillary would print that out all the time, you know. Her private emails,” a Trump staffer can be heard saying at one point in the recording.

Trump scrambled to Fox News following the bombshell release of the damning audio to defend himself and once again declare his innocence, dubbing the entire development as fake news: “There was no document. That was a massive amount of papers and everything else talking about Iran and other things. And it may have been held up or may not, but that was not a document. I didn’t have a document, per se. There was nothing to declassify. These were newspaper stories, magazine stories, and articles.”

Legal experts across the nation aren’t buying Trump’s bullshit story for a second.

This is the final knell in Trump’s legal coffin. There is no way out now.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
