Disgraced former president claims he took only classified folders to Mar-a-Lago as “a cool keepsake”

“Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed that he took only folders for classified documents as ‘a cool keepsake’ and accused ‘Trump-hating’ feds of planting top secret documents to frame him. Trump sought to downplay the scandal surrounding his taking hundreds of classified documents to Mar-a-Lago by focusing on the scores of empty folders found by FBI agents in an explosive Aug. 8 search. ‘These were ordinary, inexpensive folders with various words printed on them, but they were a cool keepsake,’ Trump wrote in a post on his social media site. ‘Perhaps the Gestapo took some of these empty folders when they Raided Mar-a-Lago, & counted them as a document, which they are not.’ Without offering any evidence, Trump said ‘Trump-hating Marxist thugs’ may be planting more documents while the folders are in the hands of federal prosecutors.” (01/18/23)
