An unsealed letter from a Trump attorney asserts that a president has absolute authority to declassify whatever he wants — and that the “primary” law governing the handling of classified information doesn’t apply to the president.
Federal judge said it's her "preliminary intent" to name a special master, as Donald Trump has asked, but first needs more details about seized documents.
Trump's claim about a "standing order" that automatically declassified documents he took home is false, according to many of his former administration officials.
A resurfaced clip from August 2016 shows Trump as a candidate vowing to make enforcing laws around classified information a priority.
“Former President Trump’s conduct has potentially put our national security at grave risk," wrote Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Adam Schiff.
Club members, staff and hundreds of guests at wedding receptions, fundraisers and parties could have had access to top-secret information.
After officials contacted Trump's team about the records, people were seen on camera moving boxes in and out of storage, sources told The New York Times.
The longtime Trump opponent urged voters not to get caught in the "wreckage" after the FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago turned up top secret documents.
“When you get to top secret, that stuff doesn’t lie around in the White House ... much less in the basement of Mar-a-Lago," said the Post's Eugene Robinson.
The Trump family was “actually able to see the whole thing,” attorney Christina Bobb said of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago.
