Trump Bragged He Had ‘Intelligence’ on Macron’s Sex Life

September 04, 2022

Nor is it clear whether the information on Macron seized from Mar-a-Lago is derived from U.S. intelligence collection or even classified. And Trump’s prior talk about Macron’s allegedly “naughty” ways that “[not] very many people know” only intensified those concerns. In his musing on Macron’s alleged indiscretions, Trump was light on details and specifics, according to the sources. Trump initially signaled his support for Macron’s 2017 presidential rival, inviting far-right nationalist Marine LePen to Trump Tower and praising her in interviews. Nonetheless, intelligence about foreign allies can still be swept up in the intelligence community’s broad collection of secrets through more incidental routes.
