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

    Former President Trump says he could declassify documents just “by thinking about it” — an outlandish claim that drew howls of outrage from legal experts.

    Speaking to Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Trump asserted there is no need for the president to formally declassify documents or even notify anyone that he has done so.

    “If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘It’s declassified,’ even by thinking about it,” Trump said.


    “There can be a process, but there doesn’t have to be,” he added. “You’re the president. You make that decision.”

    Trump is scrambling to find a legally viable defense to the investigation into mishandling top secret documents that led to the Aug. 8 search of his Mar-a-Lago Florida resort.

    He apparently believes one defense could be that the documents were no longer classified because he says so.

    But experts vigorously dispute that, noting that he has never provided any evidence that he declassified them before leaving the White House.

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

    A three-judge federal appeals court panel, including two Trump-appointed justices, trashed Trump’s claim Wednesday night, saying documents that are marked as classified are considered classified unless there is evidence they have been declassified.
    No, but surely a good deal of the MAGA militia believe it because Trump said it was so

    I understand that America is now run by communists (WOKE), but America is supposed to be a nation of law, and as such it does not matter what I think, it matters what the law says.

    If the law is not clear then we failed.
    The WOKE absolutely refuse to be honest or transparent or play fair or give a fuck how many of us must be dumped over the side to get to UTOPIA.

    So now are "communists" and "wokeist" the revolution? Are they in cahoots with the "deep state" and the "those people?"

    The scare quotes in the tittle are inappropriate, not that this should be a shock given the author.

    "There doesn't have to be a process, as I understand it," Trump told Hannity. "You know, there's different people say different things, but as I understand, there doesn't have to be — if you're the President of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it's declassified, even by thinking about it."

    By the simple act of handing you a top secret document the President has declassified it. He is the ultimate arbiter of classification. There is no formal process and there are no written procedures. Just by him making a document public, it is considered declassified.

    If you didn't get all your misinformation from the main stream PHONY media, you would know this.

    So what we have here is broad overreach and over charging in a case of a document dispute. No one knew these documents were at Maralago until the DOJ turned it into a national issue. That was stupid and will be another embarrassment for this failed, clown show Presidency.

    I'm pretty sure they are not. But we do laugh at you a lot for your complete and utter lack of knowing much of anything.
