Donald Trump is in deeper trouble than anyone could have imagined in his classified documents case ... this after CNN aired a bombshell audio of him showing classified material he never declassified ... showing it to people who had no business seeing it.
The 45th President was taped casually chatting with his staff about "highly confidential" documents at a July 2021 meeting in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The get-together was supposed to be centered around a writer -- also in the room -- penning a memoir about Trump's former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, but it soon devolved into a conversation about a secret plan against Iran drawn up by Defense Department General Mark Milley.
The two-minute recording, featured Monday night on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," starts off with Trump purportedly grabbing the sensitive docs and rustling them in his hands.
Trump then says, "This thing just came up." This was [Milly]. This was the Defense Department and him."
He then points out the docs are "highly confidential, secret. This is secret information ... Isn't that incredible?"
Then Trump makes an incriminating admission, stating, "See, as president, I could have declassified it, but now I can't."
A woman in the room responds, "Now we have a problem," but she then starts laughing.
In another part of the recording, Trump makes fun of Hillary Clinton and her emails scandal. One of Trump's aides begins by saying Hillary would print out her private emails all the time.
Trump answers, "No, she'd send it to Anthony Weiner." He then called Weiner a pervert, causing everyone to chuckle. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman, was convicted of transferring obscene material to a minor and sentenced to 21 months in federal prison.
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung issued a statement that read "the audio tape provides context proving, once again, that President Trump did nothing wrong at all."
