BREAKING: Alleged document from Trump audio in Bedminster is not part of DOJ charges: report

"CBS News has learned that Trump has not been charged for keeping the document he's talking about on that tape."

Catherine Herridge reported on Tuesday that the document at the heart of a leaked audio of Donald Trump discussing General Mark Milley's plan to invade Iran is not actually part of the Department of Justice case against him.

Trump has said he's "done nothing wrong," and repeated that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire on Tuesday. Trump has said "we had a lot of papers, a lot of papers stacked up. In fact, you could hear the rustle of the paper and nobody said I did anything wrong."

"Trump has consistently said he declassified all the records he took from the White House," Herridge reported. Meanwhile, talking heads and pundits have said the recording could be used against Trump as evidence of wrongdoing, claiming that he had the document with him when he was discussing the Iran plan.

The indictment against Trump for the "willful retention of National Defense Information" includes a "transcript," CBS reports, of the conversation. It has been assumed that those individuals who Trump had allegedly spoken to had been interviewed by the DOJ.

However, it has now been revealed by Herridge and CBS that the document Trump was allegedly discussing at Bedminster is not among those documents that Trump is accused of having retained. 

"CBS News has learned that Trump has not been charged for keeping the document he's talking about on that tape. Special Counsel Jack Smith's office declined to answer our questions about the Iran memo or the audio tape," Herridge reported.

Joe Biden's DOJ has alleged that Trump obstructed justice when he reviewed boxes of documents for which the DOJ had issued a subpoena. Those boxes were seized by the FBI from Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in August 2022.

Biden's DOJ also apparently leaked the audio recording of Trump discussing Milley at his Bedminster, NJ golf course to CNN. Now, Herridge reports, that the doc in question is not even part of the evidence against Trump.

It may have simply been a means to attempt to sway public opinion against Trump and in favor of Biden's political prosecution of his primary rival for the White House in 2024.
