Trump is tripping on his own lies, now, and all he is doing is digging himself a deeper hole. This is just one small example but is now in deep doo-doo because of it.
This refers to the infamous audiotape where he was bragging, to others at the table, who did not have security clearance, about war plans for Iran. He could be heard shuffling papers and saying,
“These are the papers.”
Basically, he was saying he had the actual classified document detailing war plans for Iran. Once the tape came out, Trump went to his fallback liar mode. On June 15, Trump told Fox Entertainment,
“There was no document, That was a massive amount of papers and everything else talking about Iran and other things. 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.”
One slight problem with that lie though. This document, that Trump said did not exist, was returned by Team Trump, to National Archives, in January 2022, six months after the taped conversation. Furthermore, there is no doubt that Jack Smith’s team have interviewed the others, who were present, when Trump was taped.
Trump’s attorneys have been begging Trump to keep his mouth shut. Fortunately, for Jack Smith, Trump’s ability to keep his mouth shut is as foreign to him as telling the truth.
