Grisham, who worked as a press secretary under the Trump administration, told MSNBC that she saw the former president “show documents to people at Mar-a-Lago on the dining room patio.”
Grisham talked to Alex Witt
The chief of staff and press secretary to former first lady Melania Trump talked with MSNBC’s Alex Witt about Trump’s indictment in Florida. Witt asked Grisham if she believed that Trump showed classified documents during private meetings, and she replied, “The short answer is yes.”
Grisham went further, as she told the MSNBC host, “I watched him show documents to people at Mar-a-Lago on the dining room patio. So he has no respect for classified information. Never did.”
Trump “could have declassified” documents
The former press secretary shared she was upset when Trump said he “could have declassified” documents while in the White House.
The former press secretary believes the proof is in the alleged recordings
Grisham, who resigned as the chief of staff and press secretary to Melania Trump after the January 6 riots, also talked about alleged recordings.
The proof in the recording
Grisham said, “He talks specifically that he should have declassified it, but he didn’t. So there, I think, is proof. I believe also there’s a portion of that audio where he says, you know, this is off the record.”
Off the record
She added, “I know Donald Trump knows the rules of reporters, and he knows if it needs to be off the record that they can’t talk about it. So I think he was covering himself in that regard.”
It is really hard to get security clearance
The former White House press secretary continued, “It’s very difficult to get a security clearance, and I think people miss that in the weeds, obviously. But to be showing it to people who haven’t gone through the extreme vetting that you go through to get a clearance, it’s a disservice to the country, but it also puts people in danger potentially.”
“Vital to our country and our national security”
The longtime Republican found it “offensive” that Trump allegedly showed the classified documents to individuals, “I can’t stress enough how by being so loose with this stuff,” she continued. “And yeah, I had a top security clearance, and it’s very hard to obtain. So it’s very important, and it’s vital to our country and our national security. The only people with these clearances have access to any of these documents.”
Grisham had questions
The Trump critic also told CNN previously, “Why didn’t he give them back? It’s because he thinks those are his,” adding, “He’s like a child holding on to his little toy train, and nobody is going to take it from him.”
Putting people in danger
The author of “I’ll Take Your Questions Now” pointed out that Trump’s actions allegedly were “putting people in danger.”
The trial is set for May 2024
Trump was indicted on 37 federal counts over alleged mishandling of classified documents. The trial was initially set for August, then December, but it was finally set for May 2024.
He also has trials in New York in March 2024 and Washington, DC. There is also a civil trial set for October this year.
