In his first TV interview since being federally charged, former President Donald Trump was pressed by Fox News' Bret Baier on a number of topics.
A large portion of the interview focused on the classified documents case in which Trump was recently indicted. The federal indictment alleges the former president told an aide to move boxes to other locations, even after telling attorneys he'd complied with a federal subpoena.
The indictment includes transcripts from a conversation recorded in a July 2021 meeting that features Trump pointing to a pile of papers and talking to a writer about material relating to General Mark Milley's plan to attack Iran. Trump denied having the document.
"That was not a document," Trump said in the interview. "I didn't have a document per se. There was nothing to declassify. These were newspaper stories, magazine stories and articles."
