He's totally clueless.You don’t know what you’re talking about.
The DoJ motion stayed the special master pending appeal only for the classified documents.
The Justice Department argued that the order would “cause the most immediate and serious harm to the government and the public.”www.lawfareblog.com
What's the penalty for violating the PRA?my knowledge of the presidential records act is limited, i must admit.
but, i do know this much:
The PRA says that “upon the conclusion of a President’s term of office, … the Archivist … shall assume responsibility for the custody, control, and preservation of, and access to, the Presidential records of that President.” More importantly, it says that the United States “shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records.” The PRA also says that the archivist “shall deposit all such Presidential records in a Presidential archival depository or another archival facility operated by the United States”
but just throwing out insults isnt going to resolve the issue.
of the laws cited in the search warrantWhat's the penalty for violating the PRA?
Those laws have nothing to do with the PRA.of the laws cited in the search warrant
title 18 section 739: up to 10 years in jail.
title 18 section 1519: up to 20 years
title 18 section 2071: up to 3 years.
but for the PRA, who knows. The jist of it is that those records belong to the people, not the president.
Not true. It's declassified the minute the president says it is.A document is not officially de-classified until the classification markers are changed.
ImmaterialEven if Trump wanted to de-classify them, if his administration didn't take the proper steps to do so, then the documents are still classified.
Also immaterial.Also, under federal law, documents involve atomic energy and weapons are outside of the President's direct power to declassify. He needs the consent of various government agencies to do so.
