MSNBC: DoJ investigating reports Trump gave nuclear sub secrets to foreigners

Hope something comes out of it. I wonder if this will be moved to Jack Smith, or if DoJ will handle it separately.

No matter what, Trump cannot be allowed to ever hold office again. The man is a proven traitor to this country.

I hope they are new charges in a different court. Donald Trump needs to be arrested for Espionage.

They tossed Robert Hassen in supermax for being a Russian agent. He died this year. Trump would be a good replacement. You just know he revealed stuff

it took the 2.5 years to bring an indictment for an insurrection that the entire country was a witness to live on TV. So I doubt any charges for something like "subgate" are coming anytime for years and years, and by then he SHOULD be in prison anyway, so it won't really matter much.

if that's what they want to do, unless there's a paper trail of some kind. They might be more interested in finding out what he said, to whom, and whether that person passed that info to anyone else, as an intelligence matter more than a criminal one. Mierda-Lardo must be the worst kind of intelligence sieve; I assume the FBI/NSA are paying attention to who's going in and out of there.

that he gave him documents as well as spoke to him.

I seriously can't believe that anything Trump could tell anyone would have much value. I doubt he was ever briefed on any nuke secrets. Maybe a Dick and Jane explanation of some things, but he'd be incapable of understanding or repeating anything really technical. I doubt he could even read aloud any documents about nuclear subs, much less read, comprehend and repeat anything really useful. He doesn't have the vocabulary.

According to the NYTimes, Trump revealed our subs' critical tactical capacities, including how many nuclear warheads the vessels carried and how close they could get to their Russian counterparts without being detected.

enough to be useful. I think he talked to the guy about it but am expecting the real information was provided in documents.
