Trump turned classified documents into 'to-do lists', former aide says
Former President Donald Trump denies wrongdoing as his former assistant alleges he was sloppy with classified documents.
One of Trump's long-time assistants revealed that Trump was sloppy with high-security documents, repeatedly writing to-do lists on documents marked classified from the White House.
According to sources cited by ABC News, the former aide, Molly Michael, disclosed to federal investigators that she had received requests and tasks from Trump on the reverse side of notecards that she later recognized as containing sensitive White House materials. These notecards were reportedly marked with visible classification designations.
Michael initially assumed the role of Trump's executive assistant in the White House in 2018 and continued to serve him even after his departure from office. However, she resigned last year, following what ABC News described as Trump's alleged refusal to comply with federal requests.
In response to the report, a spokesperson for Donald Trump dismissed the allegations as "illegal leaks" and adamantly denied any wrongdoing.
Earlier this week, Donald Trump's former lawyer Jenna Ellis said she would not vote for him in the upcoming 2024 elections because he is a "malignant narcissist" who refuses to admit to his mistakes.
Supreme Court vs. Trump
According to former federal judge Michael Luttig, the US Supreme Court will soon decide if former President Donald Trump is eligible to run for the presidency in 2024.
Legal experts believe that Trump might be disqualified under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits someone from holding office if they have "previously taken an oath … to support the constitution" and subsequently "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same."
Luttig and other notable conservative academics have determined that Trump's conduct on January 6 and his efforts to reverse the 2020 election exclude him from running for president.
Trump has dismissed all four criminal charges as politically motivated attempts to prevent him from returning to office.
Trump, alongside 18 of his allies, is facing a racketeering indictment that lists 161 "overt acts" allegedly committed as part of a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election - 12 of which came from his own X posts.
