“Having looked at both of those documents, I am deeply concerned about the presence of such sensitive information in an unsecured location,” Turner stated. “Both documents contained details regarding national security issues that should have remained within a controlled environment.”

Legal Process to Proceed
“Regarding the federal indictment against Trump, it will proceed,” Turner confirmed. “I cannot defend the behavior outlined in the complaint. However, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution, and the legal process must move forward.”
