PJ Media: Trump Says the Docs Taken in Mar-a-Lago Raid Were Declassified Because He’s the One Who Did It

Donald Trump says he knows the documents the FBI took in the notorious Mar-a-Lago raid on Monday were declassified because he’s the one who declassified them.

Civil rights attorney Mike Davis of the Constitutionalist non-profit Article III Project told Bloomberg that “it’s pretextual legal nonsense for the Biden Justice Department to pretend President Trump broke any criminal statute by taking 15 boxes of his records with him when he left.” As PJ Media reported, Davis says, “All Presidents take records when they leave. They don’t pack their own boxes. National Archives takes the position that almost everything is a “presidential record.” The federal government over-classifies almost everything.” And there’s the crux of the problem with the National Archives (NARA).

The Article III Project added some context on precautions taken for former presidents. “Former presidents have government-paid staff and offices, Secret Service protection, security clearances, and secure facilities to store classified records, so there’s no legitimate concern that President Trump’s records could have gotten into the wrong hands,” Davis told Bloomberg.
