President Donald Trump’s lawyers are struggling to locate a document that the former president discussed in a recording. According to the New York Times, the document in question has been requested in a subpoena, but Trump’s attorneys have been unable to find it.
The exclusive report from CNN reveals that the document is classified and was mentioned on a tape recording. The former president apparently referred to the document during a conversation with aides before leaving the White House, and it was later mentioned in a subpoena for documents related to an ongoing investigation.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell argues that Trump’s reaction when asked about the document shows his “panic.” The Atlantic takes a more lighthearted approach, referring to the situation as “Lordy, There Are Tapes.”
Despite the attention from various news outlets, Trump’s lawyers have not provided any updates on their search for the missing document. CNN reports that they have not been able to find any evidence that the document even exists.
As the investigation continues, all eyes will be on the former president and his legal team to see if they are able to locate the elusive document and respond to the subpoena.
