America First Legal Uncovers Secret Obama Memo Potentially Impacting Trump’s Classified Documents Case

by Jessica

A recent revelation by the Conservative watchdog group America First Legal suggests that they have obtained a confidential memo from the Obama era, potentially undermining Jack Smith’s allegations that President Trump lacked the authority to possess or retain classified documents, as reported by The Gateway Pundit.

Jack Smith had indicted Trump in June on 37 federal counts related to the storage of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

The charges included 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information and six other process crimes arising from Trump’s discussions with his lawyer in a federal court in Florida.

In July, Jack Smith added three more charges against Trump, expanding the scope of the investigation into classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.

Recently, America First Legal filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request against the Defense Department, seeking more details about a covert committee established by Barack Obama.

The Presidential Information Technology Committee (PITC), created by Obama in 2014 in response to Russian hackers breaching the Executive Office of the President’s network, is the subject of America First Legal’s scrutiny.

The watchdog group argues that the existence of the PITC memo may have given President Trump a reasonable belief that he had the authority to possess and retain classified documents, contrary to Jack Smith’s indictment.

America First Legal emphasized the importance of unlocking this Obama-era secret for public transparency and its potential implications on whether the government failed to disclose crucial information to Trump during the prosecution.

Dr. Dan Epstein of America First Legal stressed that understanding the contents of this secretive memo is essential for the truth to emerge, potentially impacting the evidentiary support relied upon in indicting and continuing to prosecute a former President. Epstein insisted that the American people deserve to know the details behind the memo and how it may have been used in legal proceedings.
