Donald Trump is in hot water yet again.

In newly obtained audio former president Donald Trump can be heard discussing classified documents with people not cleared to have access to the highly sensitive information.

On Monday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the host claimed that the audio from 2021, exposes Trump sharing US military war plans against Iran despite the former president telling Fox News host Bret Baier earlier this month that there was no such document.

“These are the papers,” Trump can be heard saying in the recording while discussing the Pentagon documents. The former president referenced Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, who he said had provided a plan of attack for Iran through the Pentagon.

“He said that I wanted to attack Iran, Isn’t it amazing?” Trump says of Milley. “I have a big pile of papers, this thing just came up. Look. This was him. They presented me this – this is off the record but – they presented me this. This was him. This was the Defense Department and him.”

“I was just thinking, because we were talking about it. And you know, he said, ‘He wanted to attack Iran, and what…,'” Trump said.

“These are the papers,” Trump continued.

A Trump spokesperson responded to the leaked tape Monday night, arguing it proves that Trump committed no crime.

“The audio tape provides context proving, once again, that President Trump did nothing wrong at all. The President is speaking rhetorically and also quite humorously about a very perverted individual, Anthony Weiner, who was deep inside the corrupt Clinton campaign,” the spokesperson told the Daily Caller. “The media and the Trump-haters once again were all too willing to take the bait, falling for another Democrat-DOJ hoax, hook, line, and sinker.”

Trump, who is running for another term in the White House, slammed special prosecutor Jack Smith in a Truth Social post and also claimed the audio recording has been manipulated to make Trump look guilty.

“The Deranged Special Prosecutor, Jack Smith, working in conjunction with the DOJ & FBI, illegally leaked and ‘spun’ a tape and transcript of me which is actually an exoneration, rather than what they would have you believe,” he said in a post on Truth Social

“This continuing Witch Hunt is another ELECTION INTERFERENCE Scam,” Trump added. “They are cheaters and thugs!”

  1. The Judge in Miami should rip the prosecutors a new one for deliberately violating her order about the release of ANY information regarding the trial.

  2. I only wish Trump would learn to calmly refute whatever they say or play. He allows them to rile him to make him seem as if he has something to hide. We know they rarely tell the truth and most always twist the truth. Trump needs to let his lawyers do the defending – that’s why he pays them. He has bigger fish to fry in 2024.

  3. Let Trump be Trump! At least Trump can respond unlike Biden who can’t say a complete sentence without it written beforehand for him to read and even then he messes up.
    I will take Trump back for his 2nd term any day. I would like to see trump and DeSantis to stop bickering and team up with DeSantis as Trump’s VP. This would give us 12 great years in a row. Just imagine how much good cold be accomplished with 12 years in a row.
