Just a little while ago, I received a notification on my phone from Fox News that said that Biden’s FBI did indeed find some classified documents at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate following the raid that took place on Monday.
When it was revealed that President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was the location of confidential materials discovered by Biden’s FBI during the raid that happened last week, I got a notice on my phone.
Democrats are thrilled, but we don’t yet know the specifics of the discovery. We will learn a lot more about the case once we get the specifics of what the documents were.
According to one of the rumors, some of the documents had to do with nuclear weapons. I have no idea if that is true, but that would surprise me. I just can’t make sense of why it would be important for President Trump to have those sorts of documents. He’s a smart man though so if he did have them, maybe there was a good reason for it.
According to the New York Post,
The FBI recovered 11 sets of classified documents — including some marked top secret and only meant to be available in special government facilities — from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate following its raid earlier this week, according to a new report.
The Wall Street Journal, citing a leaked inventory of what was taken from the Palm Beach resort, reported that agents removed around 20 boxes as well as a handwritten note, binders of photos, and Trump’s clemency grant to his longtime adviser Roger Stone.
Among the classified materials collected were four sets of top secret documents, three sets of secret documents and three of confidential documents, according to the three-page list. Top Secret is the highest level of classification the US government can give information, followed by secret and confidential.
So, what comes to mind when you hear this news? I thought of two things instantly. The first one is that this is going to prevent him from being elected in 2024, it might even stop him from running in 2024 altogether.
The second thing I thought about was Hillary Clinton. She was found to have not only possessed classified documents, but tried to destroy them after she was caught. If she can get away with it, maybe he can, too. The only thing that’s different is that the government was on her side and they’re against President Trump.
One thing to remember is that in order for someone to get in trouble for this, they have to prove that someone intentionally removed the documents from the White House knowing that they were classified.
