The latest news in the investigation of Donald Trumpís handling of classified documents

Former President Donald Trump has been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with his mishandling of more than 100 classified documents, two sources confirmed to NBC News.

Trump first revealed the news earlier Thursday in a post on his Truth Social platform.

Here we go again.
I wonder if the audio recording of him all but admitting to having classified documents by saying "Here is the gist of what's in them, but I can't show them to you because they are classified" had any bearing on this indictment.

Breaking: Trump appointed U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon has been assigned to handle Trump's case.

She is the same judge who appointed the Special Master to review materials seized from Mar-a-Lago.


What are the odds she will let him walk?

I'm guessing the same thing will happen.  A higher court will shut down any of that nonsense and the trial will proceed after a delay.

My God.. Trump is absolutely moronic.  Know that guy who posted top secret design specs of a tank on discord to prove an argument?

Trump literally did that except to a writer and PAC associate.

I skimmed through it.  It seems incredibly black and white.  This doesn't seem to be harmless fluff that's just overclassified.  It looks like material that would genuinely be a threat to national security.

It's impossible to argue this was just a careless mistake.  What's more it looks like this was driven by either ego or some kind of pack rat mentality. 

I don't know how he isn't going to prison over this.  Reality Winner went to prison over much less than this.

This has been out in public for a while.  The newest information that just came out blows up two defenses I hear sometimes.

1.  Trump is too stupid to understand the legality of classified material.  Therefore there's no criminal intent.

2.  This was probably harmless material that was stamped as classified because the government likes to classify everything.  No harm.  No Foul.

I'm hearing an interesting tactic coming these candidates.  A lot of them are promising to pardon Trump.  It's a sound strategy I suppose.

Jesus.  What a shouty rant. 

Whatís notably missing in this gish gallop is a reasonable defense for the charges Trump is actually accused of. 

Why the fuck did he feel the need to hoard boxes and boxes of classified material in his house?  Just what did he plan to do with them?

These people really treat the public, especially their own supporters, like morons.

Yeah it's a real head scratcher.  I'm certain that every step of the way for the last 3 years there's been an uninterrupted stream of lawyers loudly reminding him that if he doesn't give these up then he will go to prison for a long time.

Did he plan to sell these state secrets or did he think he was so untouchable that he could survive this?

With Trump it's usually money or ego.  I get the impression he just liked to have stuff that others thought was valuable in some way.  Just a stupid narcissistic egomaniac.

A more cynical person might think he was going to be selling it to the highest bidder.

What I'm getting is that far from being a witch hunt, the DoJ have bent over backwards to accommodate him, giving him a ridiculous amount of time to return the documents and he deliberately tried to hide them.  Any regular pleb with government clearance found to have squirreled away even one top secret file would have the book thrown at them.

Maybe he just saw them as trophies or his property, but he doesn't appear to have treated them as if they were valuable at all.  Although by all accounts he wasn't one for actually reading anything while he was president, so who knows what he was thinking?

Trump is claiming that he has a right to those documents because of the Presidential Records Act.  However, it seems that he missed this part of the act:

(g)(1) Upon the conclusion of a Presidentís term of office, or if a President serves consecutive terms upon the conclusion of the last term, the Archivist of the United States shall assume responsibility for the custody, control, and preservation of, and access to, the Presidential records of that President.

So, no, former president Trump does not have the right to retain those documents, even if he did properly declassify them while president.

Like slowly warming a frog's bottom, they gradually increase the autism-causing substance in vaccines. previously autism was 1 in 10,000, after vaccinations it will be 1 in 36, in the future it will be 1 in 2. You need to be conscious to prevent this.
