President Trump RESPONDS To Tapes…
To see that this is a planned effort to imprison the political opposition, one simply needs to consider the quantity and timing of the multiple indictments brought against President Trump.
Like almost everything else in the U.S. legal system, the regulations governing classified materials are complex, confusing, and incredibly tangled.
Presidents frequently—if not always—bring paperwork home. When he served as vice president, Joe Biden was not authorized to take them.Then, he stored the sensitive records in areas that were fully unprotected.
The political establishment, the mainstream media, and lefties are praising purported tapes of President Trump in which he reportedly “confesses” to unlawfully possessing secret information.
#CNN obtained a transcript of #Trump saying on tape in 2021 that he didn’t declassify “secret information,” so rebutting his claims made about his ability to declassify documents. The news comes as he was indicted on 7 counts in the special counsel’s classified documents probe. pic.twitter.com/tbP5ZRwCci

In response to the accusations and the contentious tapes, the 45th President of the United States said he was referring to articles and other media against Iran. …
He continued by asserting that there were no classified documents since there were no relevant documents—only Mark Milley’s planned ideas and no genuine “classified” materials.
Continuing to assert his innocence, President Trump said that he “had every right to have these documents.”

“There was no document,” Trump insisted during Monday’s Fox News interview.
“That was a massive amount of papers and everything else talking about Iran and other things,” he continued.
“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.”
Daniel F. Baranowski pointed out:
“The media is hyping the alleged “audio tape” of Trump saying he knew he had “classified documents” he could no longer declassify. These are the apocryphal Iranian war plans! This crap, along with pictures of boxes at Mar-A-Lago, are highly prejudicial.”

The order prohibits Trump and Walt Nauta, his co-defendant in the criminal case alleging he mishandled national security information, from sharing evidence federal investigators are scheduled to begin turning over to their lawyers as part of the discovery process.
“The Discovery Materials, along with any information derived therefrom, shall not be disclosed to the public or the news media, or disseminated on any news or social media platform, without prior notice to and consent of the United States or approval of the Court,” Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart said in the order.
