Why didn’t the Trump lawyer team’s court filing today include the claim that Trump declassified the documents?

Legal experts are tearing the filing part. It’s basically just one big joke. Long on hyperbole and short on legal merit.

However, what’s notable is that his lawyers didn’t include the claim Trump declassified those documents before taking them. Trump himself has said as recently as today he did.

Well he basically know why. He didn’t actually do it lol

Same thing with the previous filing. No mention of declassification.

I wonder if Trump erroneously believed and accepted the legal experts who suggested that "by the nature of being president he declassifies at his own pleasure" or whatever the argument was.

I believe Dershowitz made a similar argument at Trumps impeachment and on other occassions in regards to classification of documents.

Taking them was illegal to begin with regardless of whether or not they were classified.

Then prove your unsubstantiated claim with facts.
There simply is not good reason to believe it. The basis for your argument is that Trump said he did. Why is that somehow proof he did?

No need, the DOJ has admitted Trump had that authority.

Great observation. "Hyperbole"... I would love to hear the next meritless explanation.

Why is your assertion He didn't, valid?

Him having the authority obviously doesn’t mean he actually did it. Actually doing it is a formal process that involves paperwork. It’s not like he can just lay in bed one night at 3AM and say to himself “I’m declassifying that shit. No one needs to know, though.”

Because there is absolutely no evidence that he did. If there was, his lawyers would gladly point to it.

So you admit, you have no proof one way or another.
Why would lawyers preemptively put out information that would support their defense...thats what the courtroom is for.......unless you wish for a trial by media.....LOL

They also didn't include the part about who lied over the certifying that all the documents were returned when they were not. These two lawyers are in a world of hurt.

By the way, we heard nothing from Trump's loyalists in government today. They behaved like a flock of Sheep.

The FBI found three classified documents in Trumps desk; :auiqs.jpg: :laughing0301: :auiqs.jpg: :laughing0301: :auiqs.jpg: :laughing0301: :auiqs.jpg: :laughing0301: :auiqs.jpg: :laughing0301:
