Jack Smith Smear Job of Leaking Trump Audio: No Connection to Trump’s Indictments
Special Counsel Jack Smith has allegedly been providing information to the media about a report discussed by President Trump with his associates. The information is said to be classified and was written by Mark Milley, who was in charge of handing over weapons worth $80 billion to the Taliban during Afghanistan’s surrender.
According to reports, Milley drafted a document outlining his proposed strategy for invading Iran which included sending a significant amount of troops to the region. However, it appears that President Trump and his team did not consider this plan to be credible. It’s worth noting that Trump was the first US president in a long time to avoid getting involved in any new conflicts.
The Special Counsel, Jack Smith, recently leaked information about Mark Milley’s support for invading Iran. The Department of Justice has been leaking classified information to the media for some time now. On Monday, Jack Smith released an audio recording to CNN which could potentially harm President Trump’s reputation and influence the jury pool.
I'm beginning to read the indictment against Trump. But even three pages in, it's clear that the leaks that preceded the indictment are far too close to what is actually being pleaded by DOJ to be a coincidence.
For example, in paragraph 6a on page 3, we hear about the recording… pic.twitter.com/HP7YErumRf

CBS News reported that the Milley memo on Iran is not included in the 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information that former president’s special counsel Jack Smith was indicted for. Also, legal expert and author Mark Levin has called for Jack Smith to be jailed after his recent leak.
Paul Sperry called this back on June 10 when he said:
BREAKING: Sources say Special Counsel Smith does not actually have the supposed “smoking gun” doc Trump is heard on an audio talking about, which means he cannot prove it is classified and thus prove Trump knew it was classified. Prosecutors have no real evidence to show jurors

CBS News reported,
Washington — The Defense Department memo on Iran — at the heart of the now-public audio recording that captured a July 2021 meeting with former President Donald Trump — is not part of the 31 counts of willful retention of national defense information charged in special counsel Jack Smith’s indictment of the former president, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to CBS News.
In the recording of the meeting at Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club, the former president can be heard apparently showing and discussing what he described as “highly confidential, secret” documents with aides. Sources say the documents were related to plans for a potential U.S. attack on Iran.
“It is like highly confidential, secret. This is secret information. Look, look at this,” Trump said in the audio tape obtained by CBS News. “See, as president I could have declassified, but now I can’t, you know…Isn’t that interesting? It’s so cool.”
The document and recording are described in the indictment Smith’s team secured against Trump earlier this month, recounted as an alleged meeting with “a writer, a publisher, and two members of” Trump’s staff, “none of whom possessed a security clearance.”
