Sources who shared information with a prominent mainstream news outlet have provided details that might not sit well with Democrats and critics of former President Donald Trump.
According to CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge, there is no indication that former President Donald Trump disclosed nuclear secrets to an Australian individual. Additionally, the sources mentioned that special counsel Jack Smith has not filed any charges related to the alleged unlawful sharing of such information by Trump.
“Sources tell CBS News there is no indication former President Trump shared sensitive records with an Australian billionaire + no charges have been filed by the Special Counsel through their alleged discussion about US Nuclear subs was investigated,” CBS’s Catherine Herridge posted on X, formerly Twitter.
Her statement was made following a CBS News report which claimed that Trump discussed sensitive information about U.S. Navy nuclear submarines with Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt.
The report stated that Pratt has been identified as a possible witness in Smith’s case regarding classified documents against Trump, a fact confirmed by sources. It’s important to note that Pratt has not faced any accusations of wrongdoing, and Trump has dismissed the reports of his alleged conversations with Pratt as “false and absurd.”
“I will often state that we make the best Submarines and Military Equipment anywhere in the World — A pretty well-known fact,” Trump wrote on his social media site, Truth Social. “These fake stories are put out by corrupt prosecutors trying to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024.”
