Donald Trump got another piece of awful news this week. CNN reported on the existence of a tape where Trump talks about the classified documents that he brought home from the White House.
Michael Schmidt, from the New York Times, is reporting that one of the documents Trump talked about, which concerns a battle plan against Iran, has not been recovered. The journalist argued that this could make Trump harder to prosecute.
Neal Katyal, the former Solicitor General, disagreed. He told MSNBC, "I have to say that classified documents about Iran are pretty high up on the list of things that you don't want to lose at a country club."
The legal expert continued, "This is not a hard case to prove to this prosecution. If anything, it's easier to make a case against Trump than it is against others. Trump is his own worst enemy when it comes to his legal troubles. He opens his mouth in all sorts of ways that implicate him even further."
"The real point is they found the goods. They found more than 100 classified documents in his house after they swore he didn't. And the one defense he's been articulating since the search is now contradicted by his own words. It's as if Donald Trump is too dumb to even play dumb, which was his defense."
