"it would be appropriate for the special master to possess a Top Secret/SCI security clearance"

Should a special master be appointed, Trump's filing argued "it would be appropriate for the special master to possess a Top Secret/SCI security clearance" -- an implicit admission of the top-level classification markings on the documents.

But wait, I thought they were declassified...weren't they?

and since they were declassified, I want to see them under the Freedom of Information Act

This!!

And I'm just waiting for the "we swear we don't have any secret documents" "what oh you mean those 'secret' documents? those just happen to be declassified ex post facto" "but the FBI abused the process to get them back" to conclude with "and besides they were plant them anyway. "

The true beauty would be if the "secret/damning" information the documents contained was in fact planted knowing that Unpresidented 45 was an unreliable and leaky bearer of such vital information... Illegal for him to have AND misinforming the enemies of the US he almost indubitably shared them with.

Wouldn't be surprised if intelligence agencies sometimes gave him fake briefing materials knowing that he'd never read them and either he or some of his advisors would probably send them on to the Russians or leak them to right-wing terror organizations.

Just slap the classification cover sheet on a folder full of blank paper, similar to what he does.

In their filing last night, Trump’s legal team seems to be trying to push their latest attempt to evade responsibility. I’ll quote MSNBC’s characterization, since I think it’s most succinct and to the point:

Quote

Sure, the former president took extraordinarily sensitive national security information to his glorified country club. And sure, he refused to give it all back. And sure, we said we’d given it all back, even if we didn’t. And sure, this might’ve created serious risks to U.S. intelligence agencies and their sources.

But isn’t this kinda normal? What’s the “cause for alarm”?

They literally got nuthin left. Trump might as well flee the country.
