Donald Trump News Today: Trump defends Mike Pence over classified documents despite smearing Biden

Trump says no documents found at Mar-a-Lago, ‘cold’ empty folders classified

Donald Trump leapt to the defense of Mike Pence on Tuesday after classified documents were discovered at the vice president’s Indiana home.

In the Truth Social post, Mr Trump called Mr Pence an “innocent man” and urged people to “leave him alone”.

That’s a stark contrast to President Joe Biden’s response to the discovery of classified documents at his Wilmington home and the office he used in Washington, DC.

Now, classified documents have been found at the homes of Mr Trump, Mr Biden and Mr Pence, prompting investigations into the matter.

The latest discovery at Mr Pence’s home comes on the same day a Georgia prosecutor weighed in on whether or not to indict Mr Trump and his allies for trying to rig the state’s 2020 election.

A judge in Fulton County is expected to rule on the public release of a grand jury report following an eight-month investigation into Mr Trump’s actions.

On Tuesday, Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Willis said she opposed making the report more public because she suggested a special grand jury had recommended multiple charges.

After years of resistance, Trump discovered the texting, according to the report

As reported by Jonathan Swan and Maggie Haberman The New York TimesFormer President Donald Trump has invented texting.

Despite long fame for his unfiltered tweets (now facts?) in the public sphere, Mr. Trump has long avoided communicating privately via email or text, which may have helped him avoid worse legal risk than he currently faces.

Citing three people familiar with his new habit, Swann and Haberman report that the former president’s messages showed up on the phones of surprised recipients.

The absence of written electronic communication from the one-time president was noted at the January 6 hearing, while texts and emails from other Trump world figures were key to building the case against him.

To date, Mr Trump’s speeches have been described as benign, consisting of New Year’s greetings and political comments.
