If it was so cut and dry, why wouldn't Trump or his lawyers present this argument in court?

The orange one and his representatives make all these bold claims all over the place...except, where it would count the most - In court!

There, they are silent. Wonder why?
"why wouldn't Trump or his lawyers present this argument in court?"

His attorneys don't want to perjure themselves.

Has it been determined He had intent for theft?

These crimes He defused, has He been convicted of any?

It's a good bet Biden is bypassing in the lying department. Biden lies to Americans just about every day. Trump didn't lie to the American people on issues that affect them.
Except COVID for 1 example.

The documents were declassified prior to his term expiring.
He "declassified" them without telling anyone. Why would someone do that? If they're declassified, why did he keep it a secret?

Maybe you could try and read the OP? 🤔

Why is there no procedure for declassifying documents?

Written in 2017 by liberal Harvard law professor Noah Feldman.


... The president, however, has inherent constitutional authority to declassify information at will. And that means the federal laws that criminalize the disclosure of classified secrets don’t apply to him.
...
It would be nice to say that, just as the president authorizes classification through a formal executive order, he should have to issue a similar statement to declassify. But that’s probably too formalistic. In constitutional terms, an executive order is just a presidential order reduced to writing for the benefit of the rest of the executive branch. The president likely can’t be bound by an executive order, whether his or an order from the proceeding president.
...


What's legal? The charges on the affidavit?

No. The classification means nothing.

It's a right wing media circle jerk.

The idea that declassifying doesn't have procedures is hogwash bullshit. The MAGAtards refuse to listen after it's been well stated on this site many times. Ignorance is bliss.

I did. But there is a problem with the OP. When Trump disclosed Israeli operations to the Russians, there's no evidence that he actually declassified the information.

Seems like the OP is essentially irrelevant.

He’s going to need to prove that.

They were declassified in secret and telepathiclly .. All our allies and intelligence assets are exposed and don't even know it.

The truth is, Trump stealing the documents isn't legal and he's gone to a great deal of lying in attempts to defuse his crimes.

Would anybody like to repeat for us, the lies Trump got himself caught in?
The truth really is, the DOJ is doing what the Democrats want, which is to crush Trump even if it means violation of equal justice.

By telling America that COVID was no big deal while at the same time telling Woodward how dangerous the virus was.

Wonder where He got that idea?
