Former President Donald Trump allegedly discussed classified information about the country’s nuclear capabilities with an Australian billionaire who later told other people the information, according to ABC News.
Trump allegedly discussed potentially sensitive information about U.S. nuclear submarines with billionaire and Mar-a-Lago member, Anthony Pratt in early 2021. Trump allegedly told Pratt the exact number of nuclear warheads they routinely carry, and exactly how close they supposedly can get to a Russian submarine without being detected.
ABC News reported that Pratt later shared that information with at least 45 others, including six journalists, 11 of his company’s employees, 10 Australian officials, and three former Australian prime ministers.
The FBI and Department of Justice prosecutors have questioned Pratt about the information at least twice.
Trump has been charged in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort after he left office.
