Trump doesn't deny taking classified nuclear documents from the White House

Business Insider: In a new statement released Friday, former President Donald Trump didn't deny a Washington Post report that the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago home for classified documents that contained nuclear information.

Instead, he again attacked former President Barack Obama, falsely accusing him of illegally keeping classified documents.

"President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified," Trump said in the statement. "How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!"

Asked whether Trump's statement appeared to confirm that nuclear documents were uncovered in the Mar-a-Lago raid, one former DOJ official replied: "Sounds like it."

"The correct answer is: 'I didn't take any classified info,'" the former official, who requested anonymity to candidly discuss the topic, said.

The person added, "'Word is...' Love that. Word from who? His barber?"

Earlier Friday, Trump released another statement that appeared to dispute the Washington Post report.

"Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more. Same sleazy people involved," the statement said >>>
