As the now viral tweet declares…
…we have an update from the NYTimes(!)
Mr. Trump and his allies have argued that former President Barack Obama also mishandled documents (an allegation quickly dismissed as false by the National Archives); that the judge who signed the warrant authorizing the search must have been biased; that the F.B.I. might have planted evidence; that the documents were covered by attorney-client or executive privilege; and that Mr. Trump had declassified the documents.
…so it looks like things are right on track. Anyway, over in Politico there’s a rather fine bit of legal analysis: Espionage Isn’t the Strongest Case Against Trump. It’s Simpler Than That. I’mma sonofalawyer and not a lawyer myself, but even I can grasp a couple of concepts here: Dum-Dum was asked if he had any government documents at home. He said he did and surrendered 15 boxes. Only he didn’t surrender all of them.
So he knew it was a crime when he did it, and covered it up and lied about it.
