“Don’t look now, but Donald Trump’s ‘I’m an idiot’ defense may go up in smoke, as the notion that Trump sincerely thought he could wave his hand and magically deem documents declassified seems to be taking a major hit. According to CNN, ‘ … the National Archives plans to hand 16 documents over to the special counsel that show Trump knew the correct procedure for declassifying such material.’ … For years, Trump has been aided by a sense that he is too stupid, crazy, misguided, incompetent, or chaotic to have knowingly violated the law. … unlike the fake-it-till-you-make-it world Trump is used to, in a court of law people are actually held accountable; Court cases have verdicts.” (05/18/23)
