Politico reported in 2014 that Obama administration lawyers had repeatedly invoked the Presidential Records Act to "delay the release of thousands of pages of records from President Bill Clinton’s White House."
I think the problem for Trump is the very law that he enacted in 2018 dealing with handling of sensitive classified material. It appears he may have violated his own law.

Trump wanted to sell the nuclear information to Russia so he can built a hotel in Russia.

Glad they killed that idiot that attacked the FBI to stop further violence. Kill as many Trump crazies as possible.

trump is expected to fight it. So what is he hiding? Probably planned to sell nuclear info to other countries (he can’t resist $ and it’s worth billions) and collecting blackmail info.

I listened to former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on the Travis/Sexton show. He said the warrant itself simply identifies what is being sought. (Boxes in family room for example). The meat of the warrant is the affidavit of the agent that is supposed to detail the reasons why there is a belief that a crime was committed. These are kept under seal until a defendant is charged with a crime and the govt must disclose its evidence to the defendant.

At this stage this is all a big kerfuffle over nothing unless the DOJ wants to release its own evidence.

Why should he? Just because you say so. Why should he tell what he has until he is required to. If he did you would say he is trying the case in the public eye and it isn't fair to Trump. Your argument is lame and predictable.

I think questions for public officials are a good thing. Why do you think he is above questioning?

Don't you have a class to teach about being a cashier? Or how to properly fold sweaters?

SO, DOJ took time to prepare a search warrant request, approach a magistrate about that request, and then wait until Trump was in NJ? Pretty lackadaisical approach if you think he is hiding nuclear codes in his basement. If they truly believed there were nuclear secrets inside, the military would have set a perimeter until the warrant arrived.

Dana Perino was spitballing what documents could possibly be so important on The Five today and 4 hours later her idea is ”leaked“ to WaPo.

Again, DOJ is using nuclear as a smokescreen or they screwed the pooch by waiting so long. Which mistake are they copping to?

He is not above questioning. He is not required to answer your questions at this point in the investigation. That's like a drug dealer wanting to know what evidence the police have against him. If charges are brought you will get your answers then. Until then we will just have to wait for the process to play out. If you don't like it that's your problem.

Guilty or not you all seem to be missing the salient points. This didn’t need to be done this way. That was political. And not to beat a dead horse, but why wasn’t the same standard applied to others?
Exactly!

Ah. So he cant take questions, but he can perform political theater by staging a fake press conference where he just unloads his own partisan spin.

He should have given his speech in a heavy German accent...

That was before Trump got the law concerning classified documents changed from a misdemeanor to a felony. You literally can't make this stuff up.

Q: So when did the DOJ start treating removal of classified documents like a felony anyway?
A: When President Trump signed a 2018 law making it a felony.

This has been floating around, but is worth confirming: Yes, the felony Donald Trump is suspected of committing—moving classified national security documents to his for-profit golf club—is only a felony because Donald J. Trump himself made it one. And yes, the ex-blowhard-in-chief did it specifically as part of his "Lock Her Up" blowhardism against his 2016 election rival, Hillary Clinton.​
"Notably, Trump—after a fierce campaign against Clinton in which he called for her to be jailed for her handling of classified material—signed a law in 2018 that stiffened the penalty for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents from one year to five years, turning it into a felony offense."​
Yeah. Yeah, he did do that.​
Here's the law in question, and it wasn't a big, dramatic deal so much as it was the sort of petty performative sniping that House and Senate Republicans burped forth on a weekly basis.​
Oh—and that's also probably the reason Trump and whatever remaining lawyers are still so hard-up they're willing to work for him are probably not going to be showing us the delivered warrant papers anytime soon. The Trump-signed law is quite likely to be among those cited as justifications for authorizing the FBI’s search warrant.​

The problem is that as usual Trump gets treated differently and not in a good way. Instead of negotiation like every other president has been able to do. He is raided for political reasons. Just like the 2 impeachment that he was.
impeached for things all presidents do

Hillary, removed classified material which was a felony at the time. Also, Trump couldn't change the law by himself. Any law that was modified was enacted by Congress.

Suddenly Trump is in a tight spot. If he wanted it out there he would have already released it. Now he might be forced to do it before Garland does to try to control the narrative.
Trump could not have released it already. A copy of the warrant was not supplied to the President or anyone at Mar-A-Lago when the raid was conducted. It was held up at a distance of 10 ft to the occupants at the time and a copy was not provided.

And claiming that Garland is “trying” to release it is beyond disingenuous, he is under a court order to release it.

And the President has said he is all for it.

Groomer enabler - looks like Trump isn't fighting it.

Yet another view of the world of yours that's wrong.

How about you just STFU?
