“Was Trump selling classified intel to Saudis?”
“MSNBC’s Claire McCaskill isn’t buying the excuse that Donald Trump kept classified documents as keepsakes from his presidency and instead suggested he was planning on selling them. The former president has been indicted on charges related to the Espionage Act, and both McCaskill and “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hinted darkly that Trump was involved in trading top-secret national security information for personal gain.” – Raw Story

“The classified documents Trump stored in his boxes included information regarding defense and weapons capabilities of both the United States and foreign countries; United States nuclear programs; potential vulnerabilities of the United States and its allies to military attack; and plans for possible retaliation in response to a foreign attack. The unauthorized disclosure of these classified documents could put at risk the national security of the United States, foreign relations, the safety of the United States military, and human sources and the continued viability of sensitive intelligence collection methods,” it continues.
The filing also cites a December 2021 incident where Trump aide Walt Nauta, who is also charged in the indictment, finds documents spilled on the floor of a Mar-a-Lago storage room. The documents were labeled “secret” and only releasable to members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance of the U.S., Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.” –
