Months after leaving the White House, former US President Donald Trump revealed top-secret information relating to US nuclear submarines to a client of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida: an Australian billionaire who in turn shared the information with at least 45 other people. They include six journalists, 11 of his staff, 10 Australian business executives and three former Australian prime ministers. This was reported by ABC News, citing sources familiar with the matter who were told by special prosecutor Jack Smith, who is investigating the secret Mar-a-Lago papers.
Prosecutors and FBI agents have questioned Australian businessman Anthony Pratt, who runs US-based Pratt Industries, one of the world’s largest packaging companies, at least twice this year. According to ABC News, Pratt reported how he sought to speak with Trump during his presidency. At their meeting at Mar-a-Lago in April 2021, he discussed the issue of the US submarine fleet, something the two had previously discussed. He once told him he thought Australia should start buying its submarines from the United States. Then an excited Trump — leaning toward Pratt as if he wanted to be discreet — confided in him two pieces of information about American submarines: the alleged exact number of nuclear warheads these submarines routinely carry, and how close they are to Russian submarines without being. discoverer.
