President Trump’s defense team filed a new motion on Thursday, revealing that Trump intends to present classified information that exposes foreign interference in both the 2016 and 2020 U.S. Presidential elections.

This development occurs in the midst of an intense legal battle presided over by Judge Tanya Chutkan and led by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

In August, Trump faced four charges in Jack Smith’s garbage January 6 case in Washington, D.C.: Conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights. The indictment stated, “From on or about November 14, 2020, through on or about January 20, 2021, in the District of Columbia and elsewhere, the Defendant, DONALD J. TRUMP, did knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with co-conspirators, known and unknown to the Grand Jury, to injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate one or more persons in the free exercise and enjoyment of a right and privilege secured to them by the Constitution and laws of the United States —that is, the right to vote, and to have one’s vote counted.”

According to the motion filed on Thursday by Trump’s legal team, led by attorneys John F. Lauro and Todd Blanche, during the trial, Trump intends to show the receipts of the foreign influence that impacted both the 2016 and 2020 U.S. Presidential elections, supporting his claims to overturn the election results.

The court document reads:

The Indictment in this case adopts classified assessments by the Intelligence Community and others that minimized, and at times ignored, efforts by foreign actors to influence and interfere with the 2020 election.

President Trump will offer classified information at trial relating to foreign influence activities that impacted the 2016 and 2020 elections, as well as efforts by his administration to combat those activities.

President Trump will also present classified information relating to the biased and politicized nature of the intelligence assessments that he and others rejected during the events in question.

Collectively, this evidence will undercut central theories of the prosecution and establish that President Trump acted at all times in good faith and on the belief that he was doing what he had been elected to do.
