Trump’s Aide Quietly Met With Prosecutors, New Report Reveals

A senior official for Donald Trump’s campaign on numerous occasions has spoken to federal investigators who are working on the classified documents probe.

Susie Wiles, an adviser to Trump’s campaign, has talked with the investigators as part of the probe into the classified documents Trump took with him to Mar-a-Lago. That investigation is being led by special counsel Jack Smith.

CNN was told by multiple sources that Trump showed Wiles a classified map during a meeting that took place at his golf club in New Jersey. That meeting was held after Trump was no longer in the White House.

The indictment Smith issued against Trump didn’t name Wiles specifically. However, one source told CNN that the person who was referenced in the indictment as the “representative of his political action committee” is Wiles.

ABC News had already reported that Wiles was the person who Trump had allegedly shown that classified map to.

In the interviews that Wiles gave to investigators, the prosecutors asked her whether she was shown any classified documents by Trump. They specifically asked about one map and whether she had any information or insight about documents that were related to General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

That information is very pertinent, of course, because the indictment alleges that Trump revealed classified documents to other people who didn’t have security clearance twice.

The indictment says that in either August or September 2021, Trump was at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club and “showed a representative of his political action committee who did not possess a security clearance a classified map related to a military operation and told the representative that he should not be showing it to the representative and that the representative should not get too close.”

In the second incident that also occurred at the same golf club, Trump made repeated references to another classified document while meeting with two of his staffers as well as two other people who were working on a memoir for Mark Meadows.

Wiles is effectively the head of Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign and serves as one of his closest advisers. She’s actively leading his legal strategy, which includes helping him to find lawyers as well as arrange payment for the attorneys who are representing some of his associates who are being questioned in the various investigations into him.

She’s also a known close associate of Chris Kise, who is one member of the legal team representing Trump. Kise also was in court earlier in June after Trump’s indictment was announced.

CNN talked to sources who are in the inner circle for Trump, and they said “they were blindsided by the news” that Wiles has been speaking to investigators and prosecutors in the classified documents case.

Steven Cheung, who serves as a spokesperson to the Trump campaign, said that Wiles wouldn’t be stepping aside. He said:

“Jack Smith and the special counsel’s investigation is openly engaging in outright election interference and meddling by attacking one of the leaders of President Trump’s re-election campaign.”
