Former President Donald Trump strikes back at the federal indictment that accused him of sharing classified documents with others. In an exclusive interview with Bret Baier on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Trump trashed the allegations, claiming that the documents were not actually classified but instead just “newspaper stories, magazine stories, and articles.”

Trump explained that he had numerous paper copies of media news and articles that explained various events happening around the world. He further argued that nothing he shared was classified, and he couldn’t declassify anything, primarily since he wasn’t in power.
BAIER: "According to the indictment, […] you were recorded saying that had a document detailing a plan of attack on another county […] the Iran attack plan. Do you remember that?"

However, the DOJ’s Justice Department, led by President Biden, won’t let go and continues to block the truth from getting through. The court filing filed by the DOJ prevents Trump from disclosing any classified documents or evidence shared with his lawyers, including material relating to the Jack Smith classified document case.
Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who judged the case in favor of Biden’s DOJ, imposed a protective order restraining Trump from disclosing new materials in Jack Smith’s politically biased classified document case. Trump’s defense team will also have limited access to the documents and must seek approval before disclosing any information to the public or the media.
Trump’s strong defense and the DOJ’s actions illustrate how Democrats and their allies in the DOJ are trying to crush Trump and his supporters by any means possible. It also shows that the system is rigged, as Democrats are relentlessly attempting to suppress their political rivals at the expense of justice and fairness.
