Trump Tape On Invading Iran Not Grounds For Indictment

By Dick Morris on June 29, 2023

Anderson Cooper, one of the last survivors at CNN, played a tape last night on the air that had been introduced into evidence to justify one of the key counts in the indictment of Donald Trump.

The special prosecutor says that Trump revealed classified information about war plans to invade Iran to a writer and two of his own staff members, none of whom had security clearance.

But that is not true.

When you listen to the tape, Trump is criticizing Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for accusing him of wanting to invade Iran while making his own plans to do so.

Trump is saying, in effect, “Milley says I wanted to attack Iran but he was the one who drew up the plans for an attack.” Then Trump references a pile of papers on his desk, not showing them to anyone, as evidence of Milley’s real views.

Trump’s actual quote was, “He said that I wanted to attack Iran, Isn’t it amazing?”

Trump says as the sound of papers shuffling can be heard.

“I have a big pile of papers, this thing just came up. Look. This was him. They presented me this — this is off the record but — they presented me this.

“This was him. This was the Defense Department and him.”

Trump did not plan to attack Iran.

He did not discuss any plan to do so.

He was just saying that an attack was Milley’s idea and referenced the pile of papers saying they showed the idea came from Milley — not from him.

Indicting a former president and the leading opponent to Biden is outrageous in and of itself.

But to indict him based on his referring to a document that he did not show to anyone and that he mentioned to prove an ancillary point is even worse.
