@aeroAdvocate Biden didn't have to pay others to take and pass classes in school like Trump did. The only test Trump took and passed on his own was that cognitive test in which he bragged about passing it not knowing that it was a bad thing to take in the first place. And Trump had the nerve to say that test was HARD. 🤣🤣. LET THAT SINK IN.

I think the whole issue regarding Trump being able to think things into existence needs further examination. When you consider the evidence that he actually seems to convince himself as to the horse manure he is spreading there may be something there. And you must admit, "I think therefore I scam" has been Trump's mission statement for most of his life.

Why is nobody asking him the question whether there are other documents at his other locations.

You seriously think nobody is investigating this?! Just because it isn't made public doesn't mean it's not _happening._ If it weren't for Trump bleating about the Mardy Lardo 'raid', we'd not have known about that either. The FBI and DoJ classically play their cards close to their chest - and for very good reason. Not everything has to be made public - to do so directly undermines many of their processes and methods, which are covert for a reason! Thank goodness though, that the authorities have the RU-vid comments section to comb for 'good ideas' from the muggles; they'd clearly be scratching their heads otherwise...

@B L - I doubt it. Even Trump must know that digging up the grave would be noticed. He's too lazy to go to the effort of hiding something that well, and it must have shaken his world to have people looking through all the things he assumed no one would ever dare to disturb. Ivana's grave is kinda starting to resemble Hunter's laptop. It's a mystery box that you can fill with whatever your imagination can come up with.

Or just Zillow? Of course. So why did they do it? We’re the loans guaranteed by someone else? Someone with an Arabic or Russian accent?

This is so embarrassing to see a high leveled leader of one of the super power country behaving like this. He should have acted properly as all other former presidents did. He really put the United States of America down to lowest level on the globe. Before his presidency America was the super power of the world. I think now is the time for the Americans to rebuild the country back to where it was. It is only a shame to see people supporting what he doing.

No wonder Trump lied about being on a routine audit, as an excuse for not releasing his taxes.

@Douglas Reagan How Pathetic is must be - believing that Scientists, Scholars, Historians, Economists and Journalists have devoted their entire lives to deceiving you, while a Treasonous Failed Reality TV star with DECADES of FRAUD and exhaustively documented lying is your only beacon of truth and honesty.

Also: declassification is one FEWER reason to take physical original copies. Because if the documents are actually declassified then by definition they're open to the public for review, duplication, and dissemination.

You're wrong Dr the next commander in chief can choose to reclassify the same docs that's why they are archived

A declassified record may still contain information covered by additional restrictions that would require continued withholding of information from disclosure. Declassified records may also contain heavy redaction, making them almost unreadable.

Dr. Echo - Excellent point. Unimpeachable logic. The reason Trump took the documents he did, was because they were stamped with the official government classifications, making them even more valuable for Trump and coincidentally more dangerous to national security at the same time. The longer they weren't under lock and key and secure from unwanted public scrutiny, including from enemies of the United States, the worse it is. Trump loses on every count, anyway you want to look at it. Talk about being a LOSER. Trump may be in fact, the ULTIMATE loser. BIGLY! Arrest the Orange 🍊 Cretin immediately. How much evidence does the DOJ need to make an arrest on the legitimate suspicion that serious crimes have been committed. Let a court of law make the determination whether or not Trump is guilty. In the meantime Trump could be remanded in custody, effectively ending his ability to disseminate his lies and propaganda himself. His propensity to try to delay his hearings would only keep him remanded in custody until his court dates. As they say, what's good for the goose, is good for the gander, Trump. CHECKMATE. Man, I would love to see that happen. Trump needs to be thoroughly humiliated, delegitimized and exposed for the complete fraud that he is. As I said before - ABSOLUTELY NO MERCY FOR THE ORANGE CLOWN.

"... or where ever you are sending it...", No one is asking the important question. What other places has he sent documents? To whom has he sent such documents and for what purpose? I don't know why more people are not angry about this breach of our highest levels of security. I keep seeing the image in my head of a drawer in his desk with passports and highly classified documents stacked next to them. Sounds like ingredients for a turncoats' boogie bag. One more question not being asked. If the documents are declassified should we not be able to get copies through the freedom of information act? - No? U.S. officials don't know what you are talking about? THAT WOULD MEAN, THEY WERE NEVER DECLASSIFIED!!!

Trump also corrected himself in his Hannity interview. He said "We ...(pause)... I declassified all of it". I'm a betting man. I'd bet that Trump & at least one other person reviewed every document they took.

Whatever happened to “Frank’s hearings” to determine whether the affidavit in support of the search warrant is based on lies? I don’t like the Frank’s law because it allows police to lie, and the warrant will be upheld if the (now tainted) affidavit’s truthful evidence still shows probable cause after excising the lies in the affidavit. There is a jury instruction that says if a witness lies about one thing, the rest of his or her testimony should be looked at with suspicion, but even that principle is weakened when it comes to search warrant

Prove it, has been my mantra since the election. My hardline Maga friends don't even try to talk politics with me. I simply smile and we talk about the important things. I truly see our Constitution being challenged. The new, restrictive voting laws in Maga nations is sickening, but truly scary. I fear for my adult children in their 50's. Both Republicans. Once an honorable party, this orange monster has destroyed a once viable party. I pray the true Republicans create a group that follows the guidelines of McCain and Goldwater. It may take a new party with a new name. What a shame this man who would be king has hijacked a party that was a worthy opponent because BOTH parties loves America and the Constitution. It scares me.

Tfg's argument about declassification reminds me of an old Bugs Bunny cartoon where he and Daffy Duck find themselves in a cave with a treasure-trove of gems which is being guarded by a goon who is after them for breaking into the cave. Bugs trys to throw the goon off by pretending to be a genie who says he'll grant him the wish of giving him the treasure and he proceeds to do a silly dance while babbling rubbish and then proclaims, "It's yours".

Why on Earth, with access to the exact same evidence, did Bragg decide to look the other way? How long can he continue to ignore the facts? (Obviously, Cohen has to step lightly around that topic, so understandably he does not poke the hornet's nest.)
