National Archives Claims Trump White House Documents Retrieved From Mar-a-Lago Included Classified Information

The left-wing media is salivating over another non-story about Trump’s White House documents.

The National Archives last week asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump’s handling of White House records after it raided Mar-a-Lago.

The National Archives raided Mar-a-Lago last month and retrieved 15 Trump White House record boxes, according to the Washington Post.

The National Archives on Friday claimed classified records were found in Trump’s boxes at Mar-a-Lago.

“NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes,” Ferriero wrote, responding to a question from the House, according to CNN. “Because NARA identified classified information in the boxes, NARA staff has been in communication with the Department of Justice.”

Trump routinely brought classified material to Mar-a-Lago, a place he dubbed his ‘Winter White House.’

Whenever President Trump has wanted to view/store classified material at Mar-a-Lago, he would do so in a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility).

The classified material found by the National Archives was stored in the SCIF and it is not unusual for a former president to be in possession of classified documents.

Furthermore, a US president can declassify material at any time.

“It remained unclear whether the Justice Department would launch a full-fledged investigation. The files were being stored in a sensitive compartmented information facility, also known as an SCIF, while Justice Department officials debated how to proceed, the two people familiar with the matter said.” The Washington Post reported.

The left-wing media covered for Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material when it was discovered she used a private server to conduct official government business.

Hillary Clinton was caught transmitting classified material over a private server while she was the head of the Department of State and the FBI refused to take action.

Through numerous FOIA lawsuits, Judicial Watch revealed that more than 300 of Hillary Clinton’s emails contained classified material, including the name of a clandestine CIA agent.

Who could ever forget Hillary Clinton claiming to the FBI that she didn’t know “C” stood for “classified” while she was the head of the Department of State.

“When asked what the parenthetical ‘C’ meant before a paragraph within the captioned email, [Hillary Clinton] stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” read the FBI’s 302 notes from the interview.
