A transcript of a November 1 hearing before Judge Aileen Cannon regarding the Mar-a-Lago documents case has revealed Trump lawyers discussing “extensive” collaboration between the National Archives, Department of Justice, and the Biden White House prior to the indictment.
“We have seen communications between NARA and the Department of Justice and the White House and the Special Counsel that started way before what has been publicly disclosed and extensive meeting, extensive communications; and so we feel very strongly and expect that we will win on that,” the statement, posted to X by journalist Julie Kelly, stated.
“When we file the motion that NARA is absolutely part of this prosecution team and that the intelligence communities that they worked very closely with in determining the — well, from what we can tell, the particular documents that they chose to charge, so there is purportedly a tranche of documents that have classified headings on them, and then 32 that they decided to charge.”
“That wasn’t just done in a vacuum. They didn’t just, you know, pick 32 documents out of a hat and say, ‘we will go with these.'”
“There was a lot of coordination that we can tell from the materials we do have with the intelligence community that ultimately led them to proceed the way they did.”
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
