The Koch network spent nearly $500 million in GOP races.

During the sit-down, Trump was grilled about the Jack Smith-led probe into the classified documents. In July, Smith and his team added three additional charges that claimed Trump worked with Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira in the summer of 2022.

The new indictment claimed Trump — with Nauta and De Oliveira — asked another Mar-a-Lago employee to “delete security camera footage at the Mar-a-Lago Club to prevent the footage from being provided to a federal grand jury.”

He continued, “Look, It’s a fake charge by this deranged lunatic prosecutor who lost in the Supreme Court nine to nothing, and he tried to destroy lots of lives. He’s a lunatic. So it’s a fake charge.”

“But more importantly, the tapes weren’t deleted. In other words, there was nothing done to them. And, they were my tapes. I could have fought them. I didn’t even have to give them the tapes, I don’t think. I think I would have won in court. When they asked for the tapes, I said, “Sure.” They’re my tapes. I could have fought them. I didn’t even have to give them. Just so you understand, though, we didn’t delete anything. Nothing was deleted,” he said.

He even disputed hiding the tapes. Trump said, “And just so you know, I offered them. I said if you want to look at tapes, you can look at them.”
