THREAD: Let's step back from the audio of donald waving around a classified Iran document for a minute and remember that he had over a HUNDRED of these and DoJ found them when they searched Mar-a-Lago. This case does not hinge on this one docu

The reason this tape is important is because it shows trump knew he couldn't declassify things with his mind (if the reporting on the audio is accurate).

ALSO, if trumps lawyers turned over MORE classified documents this March after DoJ subpoenaed the Iran doc, then DoJ was correct when it posited that donald hadn't handed over all the documents and still had some as recently as this spring.

But the new CNN reporting does not say whether anything handed over pursuant to the March subpoena for Iran documents was classified. So why a subpoena for the Iran doc and not a search?

Likely because this recording is almost two years old and a search warrant would require fresh evidence that there's classified at Bedminster.

So this one document, or even it's existence (it's not unheard of that donald lied about what was in his hand during that meeting) isn't the point. The point is he knew he couldn't have classified, he knew he couldn't show classified to others, & that he didn't Jedi-declassify

If DoJ can find this doc and prove donald showed it to people, fine. Throw another log on the pile. But DoJ has over A HUNDRED of these kinds of documents, and had donald on espionage and obstruction already. END
