As the Biden Administration’s law enforcement apparatuses continue to pore over documents seized from Mar-a-Lago earlier this month, there are some terrifying new revelations arriving for former President Donald Trump.
This week, just as Trump was serving the DOJ with a lawsuit seeking a third party auditing of the FBI’s actions, news hit that Trump was holding onto over 700 pages of classified documents. This, according to some, could make Trump culpable in the criminal sense.
Former FBI General Counsel Andrew Weissman explained in great detail why Monday was a momentous news day for the allegedly purloined classified documents retrieved from former President Donald Trump from his Mar-a-Lago home two weeks ago.
In a Tuesday morning appearance on Morning Joe, the former FBI exec turned MSNBC analyst noted that one particular sentence in a New York Times report was “incredibly damning” for the former president and added that — if the reporting is accurate — the Department of Justice is looking at a “substantial criminal case” against Trump.
Weissman said of Monday’s headlines, “there was a lot of news; none of it was good for the president.” He then revealed that The New York Times reporting “I found most interesting because of one particular sentence, which is that several sources said that when the archives were trying to get documents back, it was the former president, Donald Trump, who personally reviewed the boxes in deciding what to return. That means he also decided what not to return.
Donald Trump hasn’t earned the nickname Teflon Don for no reason, however, and there have yet to be any charges filed against him in the two weeks since the FBI raided his home.
