Investigative work into former US President Donald Trump has revealed declassification

NewsDesk, Sept 23 – The former president has maintained he did nothing wrong and said he declassified the information in the weeks following the FBI’s search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and the seizure of roughly 100 documents marked with a classification code.

In a Fox News interview on Wednesday, Trump emphasized it once more by asserting that a president has the power to declassify information “simply by thinking about it.”

An appeals court on Wednesday rejected Trump’s team’s legal arguments and paved the way for investigators to continue closely examining the files as they evaluate whether to file criminal charges, noting that Trump has not presented any proof that he declassified the records.

When Trump’s attorneys hinted at a similar position earlier this week, a different special master entrusted with scrutinizing the documents also voiced suspicion but declined to offer any support for the notion that the records had been declassified.

The court believes that the former US President should have declassified the documents before taking them home, but there are no records indicating that he did so.

The Department of Justice is permitted to look into whether any crucial papers were taken as part of the Mar-a-Lago seizure by the appeals court. The Department of Justice has been granted access to these seizures for its investigative purposes.

 “We must avoid unintentionally disclosing material that could seriously harm national security, especially when it involves top-secret information,” he explained.

Presidents in office do possess “unilateral and total authority.” According to national security lawyer Bradley P. Moss, however, it does not entirely extend to information classified under the Atomic Energy Act.
