President Joe Biden’s heavily weaponized DOJ has been insisting that they are the sole decision makers on whether or not a document is deemed to be classified, using this argument in an effort to bring down President Trump – but an executive order signed by former President Obama may come back to haunt them.
Trump’s lawyers have pointed out the executive order signed by Obama, clearly defines who exactly controls classified documents.
The order states, it’s actually the president, and the president alone has absolute authority to declassify any information they choose. It adds that the president can decide himself whether a document is personal or presidential, meaning that there are technically no “classified” documents for a president or former president of the United States.
Additionally, the Biden DOJ is trying to argue that the government will suffer “Irreparable harm” should the documents in question be turned over to a neutral special master for review.
Essentially, they are hoping that they can take the president’s personal documents – a clear violation of his rights – and sift through them with the hopes of uncovering some sort of past crime committed which they can actually bring him down for.
The DOJ is using this familiar argument that the documents pose a threat to national security as they look to advance their witch-hunt against Donald Trump, but his lawyers, so far, have made a rather convincing argument that the DOJ is entirely out-of-line with their actions.
