Raid Narrative Falling Apart – Trump Had Standing Order To Declassify Documents


Another anti-Trump hoax is falling apart.

Donald Trump’s team has now confirmed that Trump had a “standing order” which immediately declassified materials he would take to the residence so he could work at night.

Trump’s team said that this means any documents that were taken to Mar-A-Lago would have been declassified.

Donald Trump’s office told Just the News on Friday that the classified materials the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate were declassified under a “standing order” while he was president that allowed him to take sensitive materials to the White House residence at night to keep working.

The official statement is likely to become the focus of the president’s legal defense as the FBI and Biden Justice Department investigate whether he stole records covered under the Presidential Records Act or mishandled classified materials under the Espionage Act, allegations included in a search warrant released by a federal court in Florida on Friday.

Oy. Can you please stop posting utter stupidity? This is just absolutely false and nonsense. No President can unilaterally declare something to be non-classified without following a procedure for that process. And there are many types of documents that cannot be declassified even by a president.

Spoken by a true yeshiva graduate. Can you please elaborate? We are all waiting with bated breaths.
All Presidents do actually Declassify documents they want and bring them to their libraries.
This has been the tradition of all administrations.

Trump took out the documents in public. There were reporters filming the entire transfer, why didn't the Justice Department immediately sue to get it back, besides according to even the Justice Department's own spokesperson, Trump was giving them every single document they asked for, and was cooperative, this according to their own reports. This proves that this was a political move because they thought this would stop Trump. Turned out that this was political fiasco, and they didn't expect the republicans to rally around Trump. Even Pence condemned this move by the FBI. Unless they turn up a very dead body, Trump wins the election!

"There’s no question that the president has broad authority to declassify almost anything at any time without any process," said Stephen I. Vladeck, professor at the University of Texas School of Law.

The official documents governing classification and declassification stem from executive orders. But even these executive orders aren’t necessarily binding on the president. The president is not "obliged to follow any procedures other than those that he himself has prescribed,

Really. So a President can declassify lists of secret US agents operating undercover in Russia, or documents relating to nuclear bombs. Dummy

So you think the codes to the "nuclear Bomb" are in those boxes? LOL
Those codes are what they call the "football" and no President has access to them only if they God Forbid need them.
And your dumb comment "secret US agents operating undercover in Russia"
are you also into the fraudulent "Russia Conspiracy" perpetrated by the witch,Hillary? Trump was investigated by 6 different committees and all found it to be a fraud!
DIN you really have sick followers

The President has the authority to declassify classified information!

The Espionage Act [18 U.S.C. § 798(b)] provides:

"The term 'unauthorized person' means any person who, or agency which, is not authorized to receive information of the categories set forth in subsection (a) of this section, by the President, or by the head of a department or agency of the United States Government which is expressly designated by the President to engage in communication intelligence activities for the United States."

Shkoyach - And Biden reclassified them.
also, makes no difference to the investigations of espionage or obstruction. The classification status makes no difference.
What an embarrassment you trumpers are. You will literally believe any nonsense he throws out.

Really? So who can declassify if not the President?
Also, the President does not need to follow a protocol or procedure implemented by an underling.
Brains. Use a little brains.
