6:30 pm
classified. yeah. investigators indicate they have reason to believe that the trump potentially violated 3 different federal laws, including the >> espionage act. trump is denying any wrongdoing. he says those documents have been declassified. joining us now is our political analyst michael yaki. so, michael, a lot to talk i just want to start off by saying that, you know, i was in the military ny was. >> you know, i had a security clearance. you are on capitol hill. you know what it's like when you're dealing with classified information and the custody of that information is so rigid and so tightly controlled people who are exposed to a don't understand that there's strict chain dakota chain of custody. all of that stuff about who touches that kind of stuff. you can see it. so what do you make of the saints being kept in boxes? apparently in a basement. it mar-a-lago. >> thanks, karen. i think can make sure lending beyond. well, first of all, 4 of those
6:31 pm
files that were taken we're lot labeled top secret sci, sensitive compartment and information. and what that means is that you can only be seen in a very special got special, so called the skip, which is essentially a room that essentially a giant bear in a cage. no electronic communications can go in and out it's it's you can only going to your pass code and only certain security level and only certain people can get access to it. and you only been there for a certain amount of time. and this is very sensitive stuff. and what you're hearing more you're hearing now is that maybe some of the information at what was called a special access programs and why the special access program is is the most the most secret stuff like maybe 4 or 5 people in the entire government access to that and you're starting to see reaction now. you might we know we're on the intelligence committee or understand what what the u.s. but what the top secret sci means and what a
6:32 pm
special access program could be starting to back pedal a little bit because this is really you know, very serious stuff. and the idea that it was basically, you know, enough and somewhere in mar-a-lago, despite the protestations from the ex-president that none of this stuff was there, that they found it is i extremely troubling and extremely bad news. donald trump. >> michael, we keep getting these dramatic details kind of around the edges like supposedly the most secret documents they're fingerprinting page by page by page. they want to know who handled them exactly. are we likely to ever actually know what's in any of this stuff? is that going to happen? >> well, i mean, if this ever went to trial, the nature of these documents would be submitted under seal. they will be reviewed under seal by by a federal judge. and if there were a jury buy them. i mean, this is really, you know, the kind of stuff you don't want have lying around in your basement and the
6:33 pm
bedroom and the bathroom. you know where anyone can go. remember, this is mara lago was known as a target by intelligence agencies of people knew that china, russia, other other governments frequent to mara lago. you just got like ashley sort of wanted to come in and hang around there during the time that that trump was president because of the act be because of the fact that it's like a giant hotel. that's not a big it's place where like the white house where there are guards every quarter, you know, doors have special access codes. it's a hotel and they're passageways where staff can go in and out through various parts of it. so this is something that that obviously trouble justice department a lot. the fact they actually allen top secret sci information is is really very troubling. and despite the fact that that trump may say it classified d classifications, nothing whatever to do with the espionage act that whether or not information that is
6:34 pm
sensitive and critical could be used by or adversaries is in your possession and you didn't. and you did nothing to do to safeguard its custody. that's essential with the espionage act is about. >> yeah,elet's get a little deeper into the espionage act because that's where he is a potentially exposed to some criminal like you said, it doesn't have to be top secret it's just it's the matter of which these government papers were kept. they're not supposed to be removed. they're not supposed to be stored in unauthorized locations. that's part of the charges against him. correct? >> right there. that is. and again, it has nothing to the classic ation. good up front. the president saying that declassify, you know, location of all submarines and he could do that. but if he gave them to us, if you if you check them out of the white house and put them on on his table were and come by and see them where where someone and russia or china some other intelligence agency could see them. that is a per se
6:35 pm
violation of the espionage act. there have been people who have been jailed for multiple, multiple years simply for having a box or drive. i mean, information that they accept that they brought home and and just brought brought to their home and they remain intent. is that really an issue here? although one should wonder what the heck, a president who didn't read his presidential daily briefings. remember the country's image or christian. remember even have the proper clearance. he never read them. but why would he keep information that you could only read and to secure government? the facility. it begs the question that it's going to be asked and and asked time and time again. and joe to more information is revealed. >> meantime, a trump is sounding practically in the asterix saying stuff like released. the documents now, i mean, is that just bravado and make? why didn't the object would that have made any difference? >> i well, i mean, you don't object if you know you're going to and he had the board. he had the receipt the
6:36 pm
received from the federal government. he knew that it said top secret as the eye on it, which is like uppermost bad thing we could have had this possession. so, you know, he could oppose that. he was not going to oppose the motion. and, you know, again, the brunt of blustering about it is is irrelevant to whether or not yes, when i checked is involved just chair. leave stuff around. can take stuff out. you can't have it in your possession and secure location, but your location were our enemies could find him if it could be used to their advantage, doesn't match the classified or not. it's bad news for us. someone else gets it, you violated the espionage act. michael, we're out of time. but real this is going to be. >> a judgment made on criminal law. it at the department of justice. but it's also going to be politically explosive. do you think donald trump will actually be charged? well, the question is, what is he going to be charged with? maybe
