The decade's most triggering comedy
A top Trump 2024 campaign official who former President Donald Trump allegedly showed a classified map to at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, works for lobbying group that serves Chinese entities, according to reports.
Susie Wiles, who is one of three people who are effectively running Trump’s campaign since the former president has not named a campaign manager, was identified by ABC News as the “PAC Representative” in the federal indictment against Trump to whom Trump allegedly showed a classified map despite the fact that she does not hold a security clearance.
The indictment states:
In August or September 2021, at The Bedminster Club, TRUMP 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.
Wiles was named the CEO of Trump’s “Save America Leadership PAC” in March 2021, according to her LinkedIn page.
According to CNN, Wiles has spoken with federal investigators “numerous times” in special counsel Jack Smith’s criminal investigation into Trump’s handling of U.S. government records after leaving the White House.
“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,” Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement. “This sham investigation by Joe Biden and his weaponized DOJ are clearly designed to inflict maximum political damage and to prevent President Trump … from reclaiming the White House.”
The New York Post reported that Wiles works for a lobbying firm that has taken millions of dollars from Chinese companies like Yealink, Hikvision, and Alibaba.
Wiles, who is co-chair at Mercury Public Affairs, did not work directly for those clients, according to the Department of Justice’s registry of foreign agents.
“Susie could put Trump away for years in just one minute of testimony to Jack Smith,” a Republican operative told the Post. “She’s got Trump by the balls, which means she can name her price for her loyalty and Trump can’t say no.”
