The Deep State desperately wants you to stop supporting President Donald Trump. They just don’t seem to understand why their childishly transparent machinations to meddle in the 2024 election are not phasing. Our support for President Trump is far deeper than their shallow attempts to make us not like him.
The latest example, which is really just a continuation of the Russia collusion hoax, is the audiotape of President Trump talking about Gen. Mark Milley’s insane memo outlining a plan to attack Iran. Special counsel Jack Smith’s office leaked that tape to CNN. That’s illegal, and Jack Smith needs to go to jail now.
You’ve probably heard the leaked tape by now if you’ve been anywhere near a television this week. Trump is talking to some people about Milley’s insane plan, and you can hear *gasp* papers rustling at one point. CNN assures us that this is a Very Serious Matter. The walls are closing in! It’s the beginning of the end for Trump! Two scoops of ice cream!!
But is it a serious matter?
Trump gave an interview to Fox News on June 19th that I refused to watch, because Fox News can stick up their noses sideways. But I read the transcript, because Fox doesn’t get any viewership numbers out of me that way.
Trump explained to Brett Baier that he did not have any classified documents or state secrets in his hand when he was having that conversation at Bedminster. He says it was just newspaper or magazine clippings.
Trump also states emphatically that he did not have the Iran attack document in his possession. And that, folks, is why Jack Smith illegally and unethically and dishonestly leaked the tape to CNN.
Jack Smith’s indictment of President Trump never mentions the Iran attack document that the CIA mainstream media is insisting Trump mishandled. What is every news outlet telling us?
The case HINGES on the “damning” audiotape of Trump “mishandling” a national security document about Iran in front of people who don’t have security clearances. If the case hinges on the document, then the case is in serious trouble. Because Smith didn’t find any such document. Sure, he’s got a tape. But from a legal standpoint, that tape means bupkis. Doodly-squat. Jack Schiff. It means nothing, because without the supporting document to back up what is said on the tape, the tape is inadmissible in court.
I’m not guessing about this. I walked into the living room and asked my attorney about it as she was painting her toenails. An audiotape is just hearsay and is inadmissible in court if there’s nothing else to back it up.
When the FBI raided Melania’s undergarments at Mar-a-Lago, they picked up every box that President Trump took home with him from the White House. The vast majority of those boxes were just Trump’s personal effects and papers, as we know. The National Archives dumped the boxes in the White House driveway on January 17, 2021, and asked Trump to come pick them up. After poring through the boxes for months, Jack Smith’s team found approximately 100 pages—out of all those boxes—that had “classification markings” on them. As we’ve reported previously, a document with classification markings is not necessarily the same thing as a “classified document.”
In point of fact, the indictment never says Trump had “classified documents” at Mar-a-Lago. It says he had “documents with classification markings.”
All of this is a moot point, because presidents are allowed to take their papers with them when they leave office. If they do happen to have something that the National Archives wants back, they’re given time to dig the document up and return it. But not President Trump, because Orange Man Bad. He gets a criminal referral to the Justice Department from the National Archives.
Do you know what they did not find in all those boxes? The supposed Iran national security document that they claim is being talked about on the tape!
The document does not exist, which is why it is not mentioned in the indictment papers anywhere. Jack Smith leaked the audio to CNN because, while it is useless to him in court, it is still useful to the Enemy of the People Media for the purpose of poisoning the jury pool.
Smith is trying to craft a narrative, but it is going so badly that Judge Aileen Cannon might dismiss the case with prejudice before it even makes it to trial.
