Sadly, the smear campaign against Trump continues.
On Thursday, ABC News reported that former President Donald Trump allegedly divulged classified nuclear information to a billionaire while at his golf club. This revelation sparked immediate reactions from experts concerning its potential implications for Trump’s ongoing criminal case regarding the handling of classified documents in Florida.
According to Raw Story, In response to the breaking news, reporter Molly Jong-Fast mockingly remarked, “GOP front runner,” on Thursday.
Prominent conservative lawyer and vocal anti-Trump activist, George Conway, stated, “Those who have accused Trump of selling the nation’s secrets should issue heartfelt apologies. He seems to give them away freely out of sheer benevolence,” he noted on Thursday.
Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump organization, weighed in as well, mentioning, “The disclosure of classified or secret information is a crime, and I believe there are laws against it. Where are our national security experts?” he questioned.
Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa offered a distinctive perspective on the situation, saying, “It’s worth remembering that Trump had numerous meetings with Putin without any other American officials present. But I’m sure that was all above board,” she added on Thursday.
CNN anchor Jim Sciutto emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating, “There is no intelligence more sensitive today for the U.S., Russia, and China than that related to submarine capabilities and detection.”
Author and journalist David Rothkopf shared his thoughts on social media, suggesting that “This is likely just the tip of the iceberg. Trump didn’t hoard classified documents due to an inner archivist’s instincts; he saw value in them, and that value came from sharing the information with those who should not have had access to it.”
