    Default Trump insists a president can declassify documents 'even by thinking about it'

    Trump insisted during an interview on Wednesday that "there doesn't have to be a process" for a president to declassify documents, and claimed that a commander-in-chief can declassify material "even by thinking about it."


    "You can declassify just by saying 'it's declassified,' even by thinking about it," the former president told Hannity during the interview, which was done at Mar-a-Lago.

    If it requires thinking- THAT PRETTY MUCH LEAVES TRUMP OUT!

    He is not much of a thinker!

    Trump is an asshole. It figures he would say asshole kinds of things.
    ON HIS WORST DAY, JOE BIDEN IS A BETTER PRESIDENT THAN TRUMP WAS ON HIS BEST DAY!

    Sure - former presidents can just wave their hand over stuff and take it. It's in The Constitution, right?

    At least they are smart enough to stay away from this, I fully expected them to be defending him right and left. I guess they are slowly rising up. Am I too optimistic?

    This demonstrates just how delusional Trump is, with all the legal issues bearing down on him, Trump is starting to lose his mind.

    Trump’s claim of declassifying documents ‘by thinking about it’ is mocked by legal experts


    I tried not to burst out laughing,” said Bradley P. Moss, a national security lawyer.

    what is the process for the president?

    Internationalist Fascism is fascism on an international scale, with multinational corporations achieving state capture over several states.

    It is unclear, but it is more than mentally thinking it. That stretches the imagination of any juror.
