Former U.S. President Donald Trump has commented on the scandalous confidential documents leak that is related to the current U.S. President Joe Biden.
The former president, Trump, has criticized the media and Biden on his TruthSocial account.
“Page 1: The new narrative from the Fake News Media, virtually the same people that pushed the BIG LIE of Russia, Russia, Russia, only to go down in flames, is the even more ridiculous story that ‘what Bidden did isn’t as bad as what Trump did.’ Number one, I did NOTHING wrong, have the right as President to ‘declassify,’ had documents in a secure place, put an extra lock on at Radical Left NARA’s request, and was dealing with NARA nicely, as per PRA & Socks, until the FBI broke into Mar-a-Lago..,” he said.
“Page 2: Mar-a-Lago is a walled fortress, built with ‘unlimited’ money with the idea that it would one day be the Southern White House. I guess that turned out to be true! In addition to locks & a strong structural setting, I have security & Secret Service is there full time. Compare that to a flimsy garage, with NO SECURITY, & papers strewn all over the floor. Easy access for ANYONE! Also, he had them for 6 years in many different places. I ARRIVED to MAL with “papers” AS PRESIDENT. Joe a VP…,” he said.
“With all that has been stated on Pages 1 & 2 of Truth Social, and with all of the evidence leading to the fact that I DID NOTHING WRONG, AND JOE DID, our Nation has become an ‘Investigation Nightmare,’ despite the many other problems we have, which are many. It is NOW time for the USA to stop these RIDICULOUS INVESTIGATIONS, and that includes those D.C.-inspired Local & State Which Hunts and get back to the business of properly running our Country!” he said.
Trump: Has declassification authority
Biden: ZERO declassification authority
Trump: One SECURE location
Biden: Multiple UNSECURE locations
Trump: National Archives was aware
Biden: National Archives wasn't aware
Yes, there's a difference.

President Joe Biden’s current rule is now getting in more trouble than ever before, following the discovery of a new bundle of confidential documents which have been extracted from his Delaware residence.
On Saturday, Biden’s special counsel, Richard Sauber, published a statement concerning this classified documents scandal.
He stated, “President Biden’s personal attorneys have followed a process, coordinated with the Archives and the Department of Justice, to review documents at the Penn Biden Center and the President’s Delaware residences. The President’s personal attorneys conducting the searches do not have active security clearances, so if they identified a document with a classified marking, they stopped and did not review it, and suspended any further search in that box, file, or other specific space where the document was found, as appropriate. Since the DOJ made contact with the President’s personal attorneys, the next step in the process was to notify DOJ and to arrange for DOJ to take possession of the document. This is what occurred in Wilmington on Wednesday when the President’s personal attorneys discovered one document with a classified marking consisting of one page in a room adjacent to the garage. At that point, the President’s personal attorneys stopped searching the immediate area where the document was found,” the special counsel said.
“Because I have a security clearance, I went to Wilmington Thursday evening to facilitate providing the document the President’s personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Justice Department. While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them,” he said.
Biden’s confidential documents leak is far worse than Donald Trump’s, As opposed to what the mainstream media is claiming. The media is trying to portray Trump as a liar and Biden as a decent law-abiding citizen who just made a small mistake.
However, the media is not stating the reality which is that Trump had declassification authority, and the National Archives were fully aware of the documents found at Mar-a-Lago, unlike the Biden confidential documents leak case.
