Former President Donald Trump Says Some Mar-A-Lago Records Were Empty Folders

    Former President Donald Trump has stated that some of the records that were found by the FBI during the raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida contained hundreds of empty folders that hand been used to hold papers later collected following meetings.

    Trump fired off a few jabs at the Justice Department and the bureau, suggesting that the agency could potentially plant documents in the folders. And that wouldn’t be too shocking considering how badly the progressives running these agencies hate the former president with the burning intensity of a thousand burning suns.

    “Page 1: The Fake News Media & Crooked Democrats (That’s been proven!) keep saying I had a ‘large number of documents’ in order to make the Biden Classified Docs look less significant,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social.

    “When I was in the Oval Office, or elsewhere, & ‘papers’ were distributed to groups of people & me, they would often be in a striped paper folder with ‘Classified’ or ‘Confidential’ or another word on them. When the session was over, they would collect the paper(s), but not the folders, & I saved hundreds of them…” the former president continued.

    Trump claimed he kept the folders as keepsake items.

    “Page 2: Remember, these were just ordinary, inexpensive folders with various words printed on them, but they were a ‘cool’ keepsake. Perhaps the Gestapo took some of these empty folders when they Raided Mar-a-Lago, & counted them as a document, which they are not,” Trump continued.

    He added, “It’s also possible that the Trump Hating Marxist Thugs in charge will ‘plant’ documents while they’re in possession of the material. As President, and based on the Presidential Records Act & Socks Case, I did NOTHING WRONG. JOE DID!”

    The former president raised questions about the handling of the Biden situation compared to how they are treating him. Valid questions to be sure.

    “Page 3: Biden is being treated so smuch [sic] better than me, I’m shocked (not really!). Why aren’t they raiding his house, & how come his representatives and lawyers are allowed to work together with the Gestopo [sic] in looking for documents, when my lawyers & representatives were not allowed anywhere near the search,” Trump posted. on the platform.

    Here’s more from Newsmax:

    “We weren’t even allowed to know what they took when they raided my home. ‘Please leave the premises,’ they said, & then lugged out everything they could, including my Passports & Med Recs.”

    The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that as classified Biden documents were discovered at multiple locations, including the Penn Biden Center and the Wilmington, Delaware, home of Hunter and Joe Biden, the DOJ decided against having FBI agents monitor the Biden lawyers’ search for classified documents.

    U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed special counsels in both the Trump and Biden classified documents cases.

    One thing is for sure. This whole debacle has blown up in Biden’s face. It’s exposed his glaring hypocrisy to the masses in such a blatant, in-your-face, kind of way that even the left is having a hard time covering for him. Which is why I wonder whether or not this is something done on purpose to help provide a means for the party to distance itself from him.

    Something to ponder.
