Trump Admits: “Believe Me, I Was Lying”

Amidst the revelation of a pivotal recording in the classified documents case, former President Trump found himself hastily attempting to justify his actions as investigators zeroed in on his activities at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey. In a flurry of responses, he provided conflicting explanations in a bid to defend himself.

Former President Donald Trump is attempting to provide a new defense for his actions after a recording emerged in which he discusses classified documents. Trump now claims that he was lying and engaging in bravado when he shared the documents, stating that he did not actually possess any classified information. He expects voters to take his word for it and believes he has done nothing wrong. This defense comes after previous dismissals and attempts to downplay the significance of the documents. Trump has criticized the Justice Department’s indictment against him, labeling it as a political maneuver. The recording captures a conversation at Trump’s club in Bedminster, New Jersey, involving him, an aide, a writer, and a publisher.

In response to the recording, Trump has offered multiple defenses, including the explanation that he was engaging in bravado and did not possess any classified documents. He insists that voters should trust him and believe he has done nothing wrong. Trump has also dismissed the significance of the documents, claiming they were news articles rather than sensitive materials. He has accused the Justice Department of pursuing a politically motivated investigation and has criticized special counsel Jack Smith, who is leading the probe against him. Trump posted statements on his social media site, Truth Social, reiterating his defenses and portraying the charges and recording as purely political. The conversation captured in the recording involves discussions about military plans and includes references to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Iran.
