Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said that only six or eight people would have the info given to the FBI, so the informant is someone very close to Trump.
Video of Mulvaney on CNN’s New Day:
I didn’t know there was a safe at Mar-a-Lago and I was the chief of staff for 15 months. This would be someone handling things on day to day, who knew where documents were, so it would be somebody very close to the president, my guess is there are probably six or eight people who had that kind of information.
I don’t know the people on the inside circle these days. I can’t give any names of folks who come to mind, but your instinct is a good one if you know where the safe is and you know the documents are in ten boxes in the basement, you are pretty close to the president.
If Mulvaney is correct, and the informant is someone very close to the former president, it makes sense that the FBI might also have knowledge of what Trump was planning on doing with the documents that he stole from the White House.
Trump took 10-15 boxes of documents, some of which are top secret information.
It doesn’t make sense that the section of the DOJ that deals with national security, espionage, and sabotage would be handling this matter if the only issue was getting the documents back.
Trump won’t release the warrant, because there is something really bad on it, and if Mulvaney is right, the FBI informant is someone very, very close to Donald Trump.
