I received a notification on my phone when it was announced that Biden's FBI found classified documents at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate during the raid that took place last week.
Democrats are celebrating, but we don't know exactly what was found yet. When we find out the details regarding what exactly the documents were, that will tell us a lot more about the situation.
One of the rumors is that some of the documents were related to nuclear weapons. Whether that's true or not is unknown, but that would surprise me.
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.
