LEAK: Trump Worker Told FBI About Moving Mar-a-Lago Boxes on Former President’s Orders – Trump Spox Responds
Another day, another leak to the Washington Post.
A Trump employee told the FBI they moved boxes of documents at Mar-a-Lago on the former president’s orders, according to the Washington Post.
Apparently only Trump isn’t allowed to take possession of his own presidential records.
Barack Obama was never harassed or accused of violating the Espionage Act for storing highly classified documents at a warehouse.
According to The Post, the claim from Trump’s worker is corroborated by security footage.
Trump’s worker was told to move the boxes after the former president received a subpoena in May for classified documents.
According to WaPo, this worker initially denied handling Trump’s documents, but in the second interview with the feds, they admitted they moved some boxes for Trump.
This unidentified worker is now a key witness in the Mar-a-Lago investigation.
Trump’s spox Taylor Budowich blasted Joe Biden’s corrupt Justice Department in a statement to the Washington Post.
“The Biden administration has weaponized law enforcement and fabricated a Document Hoax in a desperate attempt to retain political power,” Taylor Budowich said in a statement. “Every other President has been given time and deference regarding the administration of documents, as the President has the ultimate authority to categorize records, and what materials should be classified.”
Budowich also accused Joe Biden’s corrupt DOJ of leaking “misleading and false information to partisan allies in the Fake News.”
The Washington Post reported:
A Trump employee has told federal agents about moving boxes of documents at Mar-a-Lago at the specific direction of the former president, according to people familiar with the investigation, who say the witness account — combined with security-camera footage — offers key evidence of Donald Trump’s behavior as investigators sought the return of classified material.
The witness description and footage described to The Washington Post offer the most direct account to date of Trump’s actions and instructions leading up to the FBI’s Aug. 8 search of the Florida residence and private club, in which agents were looking for evidence of potential crimes including obstruction, destruction of government records or mishandling classified information.
The people familiar with the investigation said agents have gathered witness accounts indicating that, after Trump advisers received a subpoena in May for any classified documents that remained at Mar-a-Lago, Trump told people to move boxes to his residence at the property. That description of events was corroborated by the security-camera footage, which showed people moving the boxes, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.
In the first interview, these people said, the witness denied handling sensitive documents or the boxes that might contain such documents. As they gathered evidence, agents decided to re-interview the witness, and the witness’s story changed dramatically, these people said. In the second interview, the witness described moving boxes at Trump’s request.
