To-do lists on secret papers by Trump: ex-aide

  1. Trump’s Aide Claims Writing To-Do Lists on Classified White House Documents
  2. Use of Classified Notecards for Briefing on Foreign Affairs
  3. Trump’s Spokesperson Denies Wrongdoing and Accuses “Illegal Leaks”

ABC News reported that ONE of Donald Trump’s longtime subordinates told federal investigators that he repeatedly wrote to-do lists for her on classified White House documents.

The aide, Molly Michael, told investigators that she received requests or tasks from Trump written on the back of note cards that she subsequently recognized as sensitive White House materials, according to sources cited by the news outlet on Monday.

A news outlet reported that Trump utilised classified notecards to brief him on foreign leader calls and other diplomatic concerns.

According to Reuters, a Trump spokesperson dismissed the report as “illegal leaks” and denied any malfeasance.

The former president refutes the allegation and asserts he did nothing wrong.

The spokesperson stated that the information provided to ABC News lacks “proper context and relevant information” and that “President Trump did nothing wrong, has always insisted on truth and transparency, and acted lawfully.”

Michael served as Trump’s White House executive assistant in 2018 and continued to do so after he departed office. ABC News reported that she resigned last year in response to Trump’s alleged refusal to comply with federal requests.

Trump and two advisers stand accused of lying to FBI agents and improperly retaining sensitive data at home.

When FBI officers investigated Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on August 8, 2022, Michael’s categorization notecards were found. But the FBI did not remove the materials, ABC News reported, citing sources familiar with Michael’s statements to investigators.

ABC reports that Michael told federal investigators she grew increasingly concerned about Trump’s handling of repeated requests from the National Archives for the return of all government documents stored in crates at Mar-a-Lago last year.

Trump was indicted in June for Espionage Act violations, obstruction of justice conspiracy, and lying to investigators.

He entered a not-guilty plea. Trump is also facing separate indictments in Washington, DC, and Georgia for allegedly attempting to reverse his 2020 election loss to Democratic President Joe Biden, and in New York for a hush-money payment he made to a pornographic actress. He refutes any malfeasance.
