Trump Torches DOJ Classified Doc Hypocrisy

'We'll call it the documents hoax case... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Donald Trump addressed the glaring double standard on how the Department of Justice has handled other former presidents in the situation of classified documents versus how they are handling his case.

Trump pointed out that no other president has ever endured such investigations, raids on their personal home or accusations of criminality, RBS Network reported.

“We’ll call it the documents hoax case,” Trump quipped to a crowd at a Save America rally in Mesa, Arizona. “Or we could call it the warehouse case because many other presidents stored their millions of pages of stuff in unsecured warehouses, some of them without front doors that worked properly.”

“Just look at how every other president has been treated when they left office—they’ve been treated beautifully,” he added. “All they need to do is leave office and they get treated beautifully.”

Trump then took a shot at his predecessor, “Barack Hussein Obama,” who stored more than 33 million pages of documents in a furniture store located in Chicago.

Trump also noted that former President George W. Bush stored 68 million pages of documents in a Texas warehouse, adding that he also “lost 22 million White House emails” related to the invasion of Iraq.

He also brought up claims that former President Bill Clinton had taken classified information out of the White House and hidden them in his sock drawer, a case which may have a significant impact over the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

The judge presiding over the case concerning former President Clinton’s sock drawer tapes explained that “a president’s decision lies solely with the National Archives and can’t be reviewed by a court.”

“If the Archives wants to challenge a decision, that agency and the attorney general can initiate an enforcement mechanism under the law, but it is a civil procedure and has no criminal penalty,” Just the News reported.
