and in 2019 posted secret images taken by satellites on "Twitter."


According to a former senior intelligence official, Trump tweeted in August 2019 a photo of an Iranian missile base captured by a secret spy satellite.


 As former White House national security adviser John Bolton added, the picture showed Iran's failure to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles.



The channel quoted its source:


  1.  "We had a picture of the Iranian missile explosion
  2. and it was amazing intelligence, and even he waited for nothing
  3. and once we showed it to him, he said," I will write about this on Twitter. "


He added that he had tried to convince Trump not to because the United States had spent billions of dollars to "develop the capability to capture images from space."


He noted that the former US President told him: 


  • "Listen, I am the President and I can declassify anything."
  • This is proof that Trump or his confidants 
  • "considered it normal to bring documents that the FBI
  •  claims are completely confidential to the house in Mar-a-Lago and store there."



Newspaper: Senators request access to documents seized from Trump


Two U.S. senators asked authorities to access documents seized by the FBI during the search of former President Donald Trump's home, Politico said.


According to the newspaper, the request was submitted by Mark Warner, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee (D-Va.) and Vice Chairman of that Committee, Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).


 Warner and Rubio sent a letter to U.S. Attorney Merrick Garland and Director of National Intelligence Avril Heinz.


The two members of the Senate mentioned requested "that the Senate Committee be provided with access to confidential documents confiscated during an inspection in Mar-a-Lago".



On August 8, FBI agents entered Trump's home in Mar-a-Lago with a search warrant. 


The U.S.  Department of Justice is investigating the discovery of record boxes containing classified information transferred to this house from the White House after Trump's presidential term ended.
