Following the extraordinary step, a coordinated series of leaks from inside the administration were released in an effort to implicate Trump in criminal activity. How did things develop, though?
The National Archives, which is administered by a Republican hack who chose to treat Trump differently from all previous presidents before him, is where it all seems to have begun. Barack Obama received a sweetheart deal from the National Archives that allowed him to digitize all of the millions of pages of records he took with him after leaving office, including many that were certainly classified (none of that has happened all these years later and surprise, no raid). Heck, even decades after their passing, several presidents’ libraries still haven’t provided requested materials. The National Archives, meanwhile, didn’t even give Trump a year before he rushed to the DOJ and demanded a criminal probe.
The National Archives and the DOJ still needed a legal hook despite having identified the “crime,” and they ostensibly obtained one by working closely with the Biden administration. Memos seen by Just The News have made that known.
“The memos indicate that as early as April, a short time after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were returned voluntarily to the federal historical organization from Trump’s Florida home, then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in discussions with the FBI, DOJ, and National Archives.”
“Su informed the Archives in May that Pres. Joe Biden would not be objecting to waiving his predecessor’s claims to presidential authority. This action made it possible for the DOJ to convince a grand jury to issue a subpoena requiring Trump to turn over whatever records of his presidency he still had.”
“Biden’s White House counsel reportedly informed the National Archives that the government was waiving Trump’s earlier assertions of executive privilege in one particular letter to the president’s legal team.”
That letter made it clear that Biden had given the National Archives and Records Administration the authority to waive any presidential privilege defenses Trump may use to prevent the DOJ from obtaining the papers.
“Wall said in his letter, The Counsel to the President has advised me that, in light of the specific facts provided here, President Biden defers to my assessment, in consultation with the Assistant AG for the Legal Counsel Office, about whether or not I should sustain the putative “protective assertion of executive privilege” of the previous President. Therefore, I have made the decision to not accept the previous President’s “protected” claim of privilege.”
“I agree in principle with my colleague Matt Margolis of PJ Media when he labels what took place as entrapment. That’s precisely how it seems to be. Trump has claimed executive privilege over records that came from his government, as did many presidents before him. It is absurd to think that a subsequent president, particularly a political competitor, might waive that, enabling a criminal inquiry to get underway, yet that is exactly what occurred in this case.”
The DOJ had no authority to examine such records, but Biden was working with them and the National Archives to get rid of any legal obstacles in the way of the present investigation against Trump. It is the Russian collusion scam all over again, but this time the hook is a letter from Joe Biden’s attorney removing the former president’s executive privilege rather than the worthless Steele Dossier. The idea is the same, and more crucially, the goal is the same: remove Trump.
That the White House lied when they said they had no part in the DOJ’s investigation of Trump based on these data is the clear message here. They obviously did since it was their activities that made it possible for it to advance in the first place and they knew about the DOJ’s objectives from the start. Biden went against convention by invoking executive privilege to target his main political rival in order to establish the grounds for a criminal probe against him. The extent of power abuse and corruption is shocking. It could even be considered impeachable by some.
