A report broke this weekend that is going to be a big problem for Trump or the FBI and DOJ.
Trump attorneys certified via a letter in June that no classified materials remained at Mar-a-Lago.
So, either the FBI conducted a raid under false pretense or Trump has some serious legal problems on his hands.
Numerous reports have surfaced regarding a Trump standing order that anything taken to the residence, any residence, was deemed declassified.
The president’s ability to have blanket classification authority on documents will surely be tested in this case.
The mere fact that these documents were at Mar-a-Lago, per that order, means they were all declassified, which is the argument being made now by Trump’s legal team.
The DOJ clearly does not interpret things that way, so this is going to get tested in court.
To make things even more interesting, it has also been reported that the FBI took privileged documents from Mar-a-Lago, a major no-no in the legal world.
Stay tuned, my friends, because this is going to be one heck of a fight.
