Donald Trump was reportedly recorded on tape saying that he could have declassified national security documents during his presidency but failed to do so—a sentence which experts say might be "damning evidence.".

"As president, I could have declassified, but now I can't," a transcript of the tape said.

In the recording, made during a private meeting in 2021, Trump admits to being in possession of a classified Pentagon document about a potential attack in Iran, according to CNN.

It's unknown whether any of the seven counts relate to the meeting in 2021 recorded on tape.
