Former President Trump has claimed that the U.S. has “never been so embarrassed” as it is following the recent military intelligence leak. He continued by criticizing President Biden for being the source of the lead.
Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, on Wednesday to claim that this has been historically the “worst” intelligence leak. He added that at a time when the country “has never been so embarrassed” they continued to “come after ‘Trump’ on their old and tired Boxes Hoax.”
The documents that were supposedly leaked contain a wide variety of information, including U.S. and NATO intelligence concerning the Russia-Ukraine war, information on the training of Ukrainian forces, the number of deaths in the conflict, and information on munition and Ukraine’s air defense systems. The U.S. is still trying to assess the validity of these documents while also trying to determine how a possible leak might have occurred.
Trump is pointing out that a federal special counsel has been investigating him for potentially mishandling classified documents since leaving office, however, he argued that this investigation should be turned to Biden. More specifically Trump suggested that perhaps it was Biden who was the leaker.
The post is the latest attack from Trump toward his potential rival in the 2024 presidential election. Earlier this week Trump also claimed that he did not “see how it’s possible” for President Biden to run for reelection following one of his recent interviews.
