"It Wasn't Me"

‘ Trump said the FBI found classified documents at his home because federal workers packed them. But emails Bloomberg got show boxes were already packed when movers arrived. ‘



‘ According to the documents Bloomberg obtained, former chief of staff Mark Meadows signed an agreement on January 11, 2021, laying out the guidelines for them to use Mar-A-Lago as a "temporary office space" for both Trump and then-Vice President Mike Pence for six months. The agreement also allotted $2 million for Trump and $520,000 for Pence so they could acquire "office space, furniture, shipping costs and other expenses," the documents show.

Trump aides used kitchen space and resort rooms at Mar-A-Lago and GSA-provided office space in Arlington, Virginia, to process and appraise gifts for the National Archives, requiring at least 100 boxes at one time, Bloomberg reported.

The documents show that in April 2021, Desiree Thompson Sayle, the correspondence director for the Office of Donald Trump, emailed the GSA, asking what she described as a "weird" question: "Does GSA work with a contractor for interstate shipping? We have a portrait of President Trump and it needs to be shipped to FL, but in its crate it is 300 lbs, 6 x 8 feet."

Kathy Geisler, a GSA facilities manager, responded that the painting was considered "personal property," meaning it was not eligible to be shipped using taxpayer dollars, the documents show.

Another GSA spokesperson made it clear that their contract solely covered shipping and not packing. The documents show that the spokesperson told Trump's office, "the outgoing transition team was responsible for putting the boxes on pallets and shrink-wrapping each pallet." ‘

Well, technically he was a federal employee when he stuffed those TS documents in his toybox.

I thought he declassified them before he took them. Now they were packed by federal workers and he was unaware of them? Does the lying ever stop with this one?

He declassified the Top Secret documents the FBI planted by thinking about them.

That’s what the WaPo said too:

Trump himself eventually packed the boxes that were returned in January, people familiar with the matter said. The former president seemed determined in February to declare that all material sought by the archives had been handed over, said the people, who like others interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal conversations.

Would “people familiar with the matter” testify to that?

What if they were facing a grand jury subpoena?

I'll just assume that that was a rhetorical question.
