  1. It sounds like Jack Smith is at the end. When he announces the indictment on multiple felonies against Trump, that day should be declared a national holiday.

  2. TFG seems to think the US government is run like a business, and he is the CEO who can do what he wants when ever he wants. He doesn’t seem to understand that HE works for US and there are rules and procedures that HE has to follow. HE is/was OUR employee!

    1. He actually said exactly that. He said he was going to run the government like a business. I remember his words because I was horrified.

    2. He couldn’t even run his business, bankrupted 6 times. His father gave him everything, and he destroyed it.

    3. He thought that he could get millions of dollars from the Archive by selling these documents back to them ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Oh dear, we wouldnโ€™t want Trump being โ€˜discomfortedโ€™, better give him his comforter (dummy) back ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. If Biden needed over 25,000 troops to guard him from the people on Inauguration Day,then itโ€™s clear that he wasnโ€™t elected by the people๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’€

    2. @GonnaCrySnowflakeLmao “We’re all pretending we’ve got a lot to show for it, because admitting what a disaster it’s been is tough to digest. But come on. There isn’t an upside to Trump”.

  4. I’m not from the US as an outsider it amazes me how this man in just four short years accomplished so much so much chaos and destruction just a thought

    1. Iโ€™m in the US and itโ€™s horrific. We are seeing the same thing. Not to mention his followers actions.

    2. Just so you all know, not all of us support him and yes we look at his supporters the same way as you. So when you think of the US remember this, his way of thinking is in the minority. He has never won the popular vote in any election. He won bc of the system not bc of the ppl. Majority of Americans still believe in human decency and still have self dignity. Plz donโ€™t confuse the few bad apples with the many good ones. Make sure your ppl understand this plz! We donโ€™t want or need to be looked at all the same.

  5. The whole thing is that he wasnโ€™t supposed to take (steal) the documents in the first place and then lied about what he had and returned!! People have been arrested and charged for far less but heโ€™s still walking around free!?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” declassified or not,he Stole themโ€ฆ.

    1. If Biden needed over 25,000 troops to guard him from the people on Inauguration Day,then itโ€™s clear that he wasnโ€™t elected by the people๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’€

    2. @GonnaCrySnowflakeLmao Living in 2020 still? Go take a nap, gramps, weโ€™re in 2023.

    3. @GonnaCrySnowflakeLmao Not sure why you are spamming irrelevant, meaningless information. Of course he needs to be protected when we have so many violent people from a specific party in America. This speaks more about the far-right than you think it does.

    1. @Rod wow, youโ€™ve left over 1000 comments on this channel. CNN really appreciates your loyalty and support! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. Funny how the โ€œI didnโ€™t knowโ€ defense only works for Presidential level crimes.

    1. Except he did know because in 2018 he upgraded the crime of mishandling classified documents to a felony!

  7. Normal citizens have to know and abide by literally hundreds of laws every single day…
    So WHY WHY WHY does there have to be clear cut evidence that the cheeto had to be told that you can’t just take classified documents and “declare” them declassified and then keep them??? You would expect that it would be a reasonable for the potus to know and follow the laws like everyone else. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„
    (I know the answer, I’m just pointing out the absurdity of it)

    1. Absolutely correct. The news organizations know that keeping this in an unresolved dogma then they will prosper.

  8. I was always taught that ignorance of the law is no excuse. It was up to him and his staff to make sure he did this properly.
    If he can break the law, then we can slide by and break the law too.

    1. The fact is we can’t slide by and break the law, that’s what makes this so frustrating, the fact that Trump can.

    2. Considering that Turnip upgraded the crime of mishandling classified documents to a felony in 2018, he is found to have a pretty hard time claiming ignorance of the law.

  9. “You can declassify just by thinking about it”. This assumes that the President in question is capable of thought.

    1. @Elizabeth Stanley ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ only his cult members would think it was a positive event. Giving the special prosecutor evidence of his guilt is so thoughtful of him. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

    2. @Elizabeth Stanley What do you mean?
      Anyone who watched the town hall would be convinced that Trump is incapable of thought of any kind!

  10. The concept of declassifying documents on a whim at the very least jeopordizes the lives of everyone in the chain of intelligence gathering. Wreckless endangerment and intimidating to any potential sources moving forward. Example: i,m not saying s#*t to anyone if there is even a remote chance I’d be exposed to arrest and execution. Proper protocol exists to evacuate or at least warn an intelligence source.

  11. I tried telling my professor “I’m been attending your class, I should automatically get an A. There’s no need to physically do my homework, I can do by just thinking about it.” I failed the class….

  12. Declassification of a document is not, nor simply cannot be, automatic. It is a complicated process that requires a participation and work from a number of facilities and people. I had clearances for 11 years when I worked for the DoD, over 7 of those years were TS/SCI clearances. Given what I have seen, those documents were not declassified. There isnโ€™t a single declassification marking on any of those in the FBI picture, which is a requirement.

    1. Unless your Biden,Bush,Clinton, Obama, and every president before Trump.. Makes perfect sense to me. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    2. @Franklin 3, I donโ€™t defend their mishandling, the video was simply about Trump. Iโ€™ve said Clinton got away with something I would have been prosecuted for severely and that is complete BS. The fact Pence and Biden had documents outside secure storage sickens me greatly and the fact that I havenโ€™t heard a thing about any assessment of the damage those mishandlings caused is just one more strike against those of us who have to go through the standard clearance process. What really bothers me is that three people at the highest levels of the executive branch are definitely shown to have mishandled those documents and remove them for significant periods outside secure storage. Whoever is in charge of that SCIF in the White House needs to face some penalties too and significant changes enacted to stop this garbage. National security is suffering.

    3. @Franklin 3 They never said they could declassify documents with their minds because they were not claiming they are a Jedi – just Trump did. Trump is not Luke Skywalker but more like Obi One Tonne Kenobi ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    4. There is a process to go through. You just canโ€™t use your mind. That being said, does trump even have a mind?

    5. โ€‹@Franklin 3 stop acting like it’s ok because someone else did it. Is that how you raise your kids? I’d hope not. Prosecute them ALL.

  13. Ignorance of the law is no excuse

    Example : I didnโ€™t know robbing a bank was illegal .
    Example: I didnโ€™t know shooting him in the face was illegal
    Example: I didnโ€™t know breaking an entrance was illegal

    I think you get the point , republicans.

  14. Can’t believe his “I had a standing order to declassify all documents” is actually his defense and it is being debated.
