The Washington Post reported Tuesday that one of the classified documents seized by the FBI at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence contained information on a foreign government’s military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities.
This is the latest example of leaks to the media about the ongoing investigation of Trump’s possible mishandling of classified documents.
Many Republicans reacted to the news, calling it a distraction to help Democrats win elections in November.
Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) joined WVNN’s “The Dale Jackson Show” and accused Democrats and the media of “creating a narrative” against Trump to “keep power.”
“The Washington Post is very, very left leaning,” Tuberville said. “You’re going to see more and more leaks come out. They’re going to keep the narrative out there since the fact that the election is coming up. They want people to keep their eye on that when everybody should be looking up here in Washington, D.C., of how to stop this inflation and how to get this country back on track.”
Alabama’s junior senator believes Democrats should stop focusing on Trump and try to help the country through these tough economic times.
“We’re in a free fall right now,” he said, “and all these Democrats up here are worried about Donald Trump. I mean the guy’s playing golf in Mar-a-Lago. Quit worrying about him and get up and get to doing your job. They have no clue about how to do a job up here. All they want to do is create a narrative where they can get reelected and keep power. This is all about power.”
Tuberville also highlighted how he plans to help Republican Senate candidates win in their upcoming midterm elections.
“That’s part of our job up here in October,” he said. “We’ll work a few more weeks here and try to get something done with this inflation if we get the Democrats off of Donald Trump, but a lot of October before the election, a lot of us, including me, I’ll be going to Nevada, to Arizona, I’ve been raising money for Herschel (Walker) … we’ve got to win Pennsylvania, Ohio, I think we’ve got a chance to flip a couple more. People are counting us out for dead in the Senate right now, but the election just barely starts after Labor Day.”
The former football coach reiterated how broken he believes our federal government is right now.
“This is a swamp,” he said. “And I’ve never seen anything like … it is really really bad here. We’ve basically lost the leadership of our institutions, the DOJ, the FBI, and some of the others, it’s embarrassing. They don’t stand up for the American people.”
