Trump is styled "pro se" in the pleadings; but three lawyers signed the "motion."

This is one of the reasons Popehat said he wouldn’t fire an associate who drafted a pleading like this, he’d just kill him. It would be a mercy killing.

lawyers. "As you are no doubt aware, NARA had ongoing communications with the former President’s representatives throughout 2021 about what appeared to be missing Presidential records, which resulted in the transfer of 15 boxes of records to NARA in January 2022," the letter read. "In its initial review of materials within those boxes, NARA identified items marked as classified national security information, up to the level of Top Secret and including Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Program materials. NARA informed the Department of Justice about that discovery, which prompted the Department to ask the President to request that NARA provide the FBI with access to the boxes at issue so that the FBI and others in the Intelligence Community could examine them."To clarify:

Does @jsolomonReports realize how bad that letter is for Trump?— Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) August 23, 2022

Trump not only had classified records at Mar-a-Lago, not only had TS/SCI classified records, he had Special Access Program classified information.— Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) August 23, 2022
Those are our most sensitive secrets. They were sitting in a damn basement.
Trump allies pointed to this letter as some kind of evidence of Biden White House meddling. What it shows is officials expressing extreme alarm about national security damage based on records being held by Trump.https://t.co/SvkA9KxmCp— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) August 23, 2022
The letter does more to show how Trump and his team resisted NARA entreaties than anything that has come out so far.— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) August 23, 2022
And this is all before subsequent tranches were discovered at Mar-a-Lago.https://t.co/SvkA9KxmCp
According to this letter, Biden delegated the privilege decision to National Archivist Debra Wall, who said the case was "not a close one," since there was no way a former president's claim could override an incunbent administration's need for the review.https://t.co/t0F9BLJZQh— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) August 23, 2022
This level of incompetence and idiocy has to be seen to be believed. I almost still don’t.
Trump allies touted portions of this letter that were revealed by Solomon earlier in the evening, saying it showed Biden had been involved in the process. That's a requirement of any NARA matter involving privilege, and here Wall indicate he delegated.https://t.co/t0F9BLJZQh— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) August 23, 2022
