Maddow mentioned, “It’s loopy, proper?

Think about there was a tape by which the accused mentioned, now I’m not alleged to be displaying this to you. It’s actually secret however look. Right here it’s. I imply, it’s only a prosecutor’s dream to have one thing like this on tape. However all we might see within the indictment was prosecutor’s allegation that this tape existed and that on this tape trump mentioned these issues. You already know, as an allegation it’s damning. The particular counsel is alleging Trump improperly held on to categorised info, right here allegedly was this description of audio proof of trump showing to confess he was in possession of secret materials. That it’s not declassified. It’s categorised materials and he’s however displaying it to people who find themselves completely not cleared to see it at this assembly at his golf course.”
The recklessness and the absurdity of a former president not solely openly breaking the legislation, but additionally displaying categorised paperwork to a reporter whereas he knew he was being recorded, as he admits that the fabric is classed and he can’t declassify it.
Trump knew that the fabric was categorised, however he apparently wished to appear like an enormous shot and impress the folks within the room.
Rachel Maddow’s laughter was not that of pleasure however of horror and astonishment at how a lot jeopardy Trump put the nation in.
