Prosecutors Reject Claims of Unfairness in Trump Classified Documents Case

Federal prosecutors on Monday rejected former President Donald J. Trump’s claims that he was unfairly charged with holding on to classified documents after he left office, saying that his case bore no comparison to the one in which President Biden was cleared of wrongdoing even though he was found in possession of classified materials after leaving the vice presidency.

In rebuffing what was known as a “selective prosecution” claim by Mr. Trump, the prosecutors said that while many government officials over the years had taken classified materials with them after leaving office — often inadvertently, but occasionally willfully — Mr. Trump’s case remained unique because of the extent to which he had “resisted the government’s lawful efforts to recover them.”

“There has never been a case in American history in which a former official has engaged in conduct remotely similar to Trump’s,” they wrote.

Everyone should read this short filing by Smith. https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.flsd.648653/gov.uscourts.flsd.648653.337.0.pdf

He explains the crimes Trump committed in trying to keep the government from taking possession of the classified material Trump stole.

“Most notably, Trump, unlike Biden, is alleged to have engaged in extensive and repeated efforts to obstruct justice and thwart the return of documents bearing classification markings. And the evidence concerning the two men’s intent—whether they knowingly possessed and willfully retained such documents—is also starkly different, as reflected in the Hur Report’s conclusion.”

Will any of the details, most already known, marking the vast difference between Trump and Biden's cases be acknowledged by The Following? Not a chance.
 
Perhaps what comes thru for me more than anything about this case is the disdain for the risks intel operatives took to obtain national security info that Trump left exposed to members of MAL. These things never enter the mind of a narcissist. Because as always he puts himself before his country.

Yet leaving the same kind of materials lying around totally unsecured in a garage doesn't bother you at all. Hypocrite.

LOL You don't see the irony of Comrade Smith hiding documents in a case where he claims Trump was hiding documents?
 
Biden immediately returned them once he realized he had them

Trump FOUGHT the return and lied about them to the DOJ
He realized he had them at least in 2017 and didn't return them

What was the results of Biden's DNI national security assessment in 202?
 
Finally, the defendants’ baseless theory that the prosecutorial decisions in this case have been made by the incumbent president, communicating his direction via the news media, is inconsistent with their requests for discovery. A defendant must show that the prosecutorial decision was in fact “motivated by a discriminatory purpose” on behalf of “the decision maker. ”United States v. Jordan, 635 F.3d 1181, 1188 (11th Cir. 2011) (quotation marks omitted). A defendant cannot establish a claim of selective or vindictive prosecution by relying on allegations of animus on the part of investigating agents or others who did not “actually ma[k]e the decision to prosecute.” Hastings, 126 F.3d at 314; see United States v. Spears, 159 F.3d 1081, 1087 (7thCir. 1998) (“[A]ctions of an investigating agency will not be imputed to a federal prosecutor.”).Discovery regarding purported bias on behalf of a referring or investigating agency, or a member of the intelligence community, is irrelevant to a claim of selective or vindictive prosecution, and this disconnect underscores that the defendants are engaged in a fishing expedition.
 
Yes Comrade Smith has a hardon for bad Orange man. DOesn't change the fact that the Senile Fuckstick kept hiding classified documents even after he found them, at least in 2017
So, you know nothing about the case. Imagine my surprise.

But their claims increased in volume this month after a second special counsel, Robert K. Hur, released a report clearing Mr. Biden of any criminal wrongdoing after classified materials were discovered in his possession several years ago.

In his report, Mr. Hur concluded that the cases involving Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden were not the same, largely because Mr. Biden had fully cooperated with investigators while Mr. Trump had sought to defy them in any number of ways.

"in February 2017, about a month after he left office, Mr. Biden said, while referencing his 2009 Thanksgiving memo, that he had "just found all the classified stuff downstairs."
 
Exactly.

Trump committed serious crimes, his prosecution is perfectly appropriate, warranted, and lawful.

There is no ‘selective prosecution’ – that’s a lie.
But of course. Remember, the goal is to delay. The appeals are baseless.

The Repub SC found no illegal act. Suck on that.
