Rudy Giuliani :

shared that Trump once advised him to take the top secret files home


President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, claims Trump once gave him the green light to take classified information home.



In order to "examine" some "very wealthy" individuals for Trump

Giuliani claimed to be in Mar-a-Lago and considering their tax returns. According to Giuliani, the event took place immediately after Trump's inauguration.


Giuliani said on Sunday's episode of the WABC77 radio show

"When I was his lawyer, I mean, there was a period of time I was there like, ah, 10 days in a row," "he revealed the truth with Rudy Giuliani and D. Maria Ryan ".



Describing how he handled the documents

Giuliani said:

I didn't listen to this, this is my top secret training:

I didn't take them out of Mar-a-Lago.


"He told me,"

Oh

  • take them home with you
  • Giuliani said of Trump. I'm not taking
  • Wilbur Ross' tax returns home with me. I can miss them! 



Giuliani added:

I -- you know, I've never, never, never, never, intentionally, never been caught -- but I don't remember taking any document at all In his office in Mar-a-Lago, he promised to store the papers in a small safe until they were worked out the next day.


Giuliani said the highly classified files are "very, very strange in the way they are collected" and "often very small, but they contain a lot of information."



Requests for a reply from Insider were

not immediately answered by Giuliani or the Trump official.


On August 8, the FBI launched a raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate and retrieved a number of classified documents, some of which it described as "top secret."



The Justice Department is currently considering

whether Trump's storage of records at his Florida home

violates any of three federal laws, including the Espionage Act. Trump made an unreasonable claim that the discovered documents were already declassified and that he had the authority to do so once he thought about it.



Just last week :

  • Giuliani was called, according to Monday's CNN story.
  • Special counsel Jack Smith is responsible
  • for all criminal investigations into former
  • President Donald Trump conducted by the federal government.

The subpoena

sent over a month ago but was never reported

requests documents from Giuliani about payments he received about the 2020 election when Giuliani filed numerous lawsuits on behalf of Trump challenging the results of the election." Katelyn Polantz and Sarah Murray.


The plaintiffs also subpoenaed other witnesses close to Trump

  • specifically requesting documents related to funds from Save America PAC
  • Trump's initial fundraising shortly after the 2020 election
  • other sources acquainted with the investigation claim.


According to the source

the subpoena appears to be part of a "follow-up" investigation into Trump's attempts to illegally retain power after losing the 2020 election to President Joe Biden.



Save America was part of Trump and the Republican Party's broader fundraising effort that raised more than $250 million after the election.

Since then :

the PAC has compensated several lawyers who now represent Trump and his allies in investigations related to January 6. Subpoenas for other witnesses as well as Giuliani were sent in late December, according to other sources.

Giuliani

a longtime ally of the former president

and former New York City mayor, is dealing with a number of legal cases.
