Donald Trump IS his own worst enemy….
The Fedss will have him on video tape….
“Trump’s comments hurt him, and what he said is significant,” said John Fishwick, a former U.S. attorney for the Western District of Virginia who was appointed during the Obama administration.
“Not only do they contradict his legal position, he admits to possession and knowledge of classified documents that he is taking from the White House. Jack Smith will make good use of last night’s town hall and it will help him button up his case.”
Smith, a special counsel, is running investigations into the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago and into Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Another special counsel, Robert Hur, is investigating the circumstances around the classified documents found at President Joe Biden’s home and office.
Andrew Weissmann, a former FBI general counsel and NBC News contributor who worked for special counsel Robert Mueller in the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, said Trump’s unwillingness to rule out showing classified documents to others “is like red meat to a prosecutor.”
In their letter last month to the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Trump’s lawyers suggested that classified documents were sent to Mar-a-Lago unintentionally, mixed in by accident with other records….

The Worst Thing to Come Out of Trump’s Town Hall Didn’t Come From Trump
When CNN treated its event as a means of making news, it had already lost the battle.

[The Atlantic Monthly]
You already know what happened in CNN’s town hall with Donald Trump last night. You know it because you know Donald Trump. Performative cruelty, preening selfishness, bluster, hatred, insults, lies—it was a grotesque display made even worse by the fact that the grotesquerie was entirely predictable.
Trump is, in the strictest sense, old news. He is a known quantity. He is no longer capable of revealing anything new, about himself or his movement. Because of that, only one piece of relevant news emerged from the town hall. It came not from the event itself, but from the speech that CNN’s CEO, Chris Licht, delivered in a network-wide editorial call this morning. Licht congratulated the town hall’s moderator, Kaitlan Collins, on her effort to coax truth out of Trump’s lies. And he did so in particular terms: “Kaitlan pressed him again and again and made news,” Licht said, according to the media reporter (and former CNN anchor) Brian Stelter. “Made a lot of news.” And “that is our job.”…
The reports are that CNN planted MOSTLY Pro-Trump people in the audience….
I agree that report’s of feed back in real time at the place where POSITIVE FOR Trump…..
Props to Collins…..
Why Trump Agreed to the CNN Town Hall Event
The Guardian: “He was interested in doing it on CNN because the campaign reached an understanding – which a spokesperson denied – that it would book more Trump surrogates.”
