Kash Patel says Biden’s DOJ has a key flaw in their claims against President Trump, and it has to do with the actual “classifying something” as either classified or unclassified.
And while that’s interesting, and we’ll get into that in a moment, I thought what he said about the actual documents was even crazier. He says this whole thing was about the Swamp protecting itself and retrieving documents that would have been damning to them — which is what we all suspected. Kash says Trump had the documents because he wanted to share them with the American people so they could see what was really going on with the Russia Hoax. I guess this would explain why they’re now trying to deflect, and plant stories with “anonymous sources” that Trump had “nuclear codes” for crying out loud. It’s so absurd.
Man, I hope President Trump made copies.
Western Journal reported that Kash Patel, a former Federal Prosecutor and Department of Defense official under former President Donald Trump, has revealed a key flaw in the Biden Department of Justice’s claims following the FBI raid on Trump’s estate at Mar-a-Lago.
Patel explained that reports of classified materials found at the Palm Beach property are misleading because the documents were already declassified.
“Trump declassified whole sets of materials in anticipation of leaving government that he thought the American public should have the right to read themselves,” Patel told Breitbart News.
“The White House counsel failed to generate the paperwork to change the classification markings, but that doesn’t mean the information wasn’t declassified,” he continued. “I was there with President Trump when he said ‘We are declassifying this information.’”
“This story is just another disinformation campaign designed to break the public trust in a president that lived on transparency. It’s yet another way to attack Trump and say he took classified information when he did not,” Patel added.
The report cited by Breitbart that Patel may have referred to was published by NBC News in February. In that report, NBC stated that the National Archives and Records Administration confirmed that it had found materials marked as classified in the 15 boxes of documents that Trump turned over to them in cooperation with their request.
“NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes,” Archivist David S. Ferriero said in a letter to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
Patel said that this “classified” stuff was just “petty bureaucracy” at its finest. He said this is a perfect example of government simpletons not following a president’s orders to have them marked “declassified” in the first place. Kash explained that the president has unilateral authority to declassify documents — anything in government and in this case, President Trump exercised that right in full he said.
But it sounds like no matter how they were “classified,” the Swamp would have done whatever it had to do in order to get them back.
