Trump’s former CFO “regrets the damage caused” after being sentenced to five months in prison

Donald Trump has baselessly accused President Joe Biden of sharing US secrets with China after it was revealed that classified documents from his time as Vice President had been discovered at a Washington DC think tank.

Lawyers for Mr. Biden said they found the government materials in a private office at the Penn Biden Center in November, prompting a Justice Department investigation.

Mr Trump jumped on the news and claimed – without any evidence – that the President handed the documents over to China.

“For Biden to give China highly classified documents would be a bridge too far. I certainly wouldn’t do that. Not a good situation for our country,” he complained on his platform “Truth Social”.

This is because Mr Trump is currently under investigation for misuse of government records following his departure from office.

Also on Monday, a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, concluded its investigation into Mr Trump’s alleged attempt to overturn the state’s 2020 election results. The district attorney’s office will decide whether to press charges by the end of the month.

In other news, Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg has been sentenced to five months in prison after pleading guilty to multiple tax crimes stemming from a wide-ranging probe into Mr Trump’s business empire.

But what makes them different?
