‘You can declassify just by thinking about it’: Trump claims he did have the right to hold documents

‘You can declassify anything… just by THINKING about it!’ Trump claims he had right to hold classified docs seized by FBI and says agents even took his WILL from Mar-a-Lago: Also threatens to release security footage of raid

Donald Trump has said he could declassify documents just ‘by thinking about it’ as he again slapped down the FBI’s right to raid his Mar-a-Lago mansion.

The former president furiously insisted he had a right to the items seized by agents at the Florida home last month – and even claimed they took his last will and testament.

He also appeared to threaten to release security camera footage of them digging through the house, but hinted he would pixilate their faces.

Trump sat down for an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday night as he opened up on a wide range of topics from the comfort of his Mar-a-Lago mansion.

He railed against New York Attorney General Letitia James after she launched a $250 million lawsuit against him claiming he lied about his property values when applying for loans to expand his real estate empire.

He also slammed Joe Biden for ‘dismantling’ his achievements in the White House, insisting the southern border crisis would not have happened if he was still in office because the wall he build was nearly completed.

The interview aired hours after a federal appeals court said it would allow DOJ lawyers to continue looking at the documents marked as classified taken from Mar-a-Lago.

DOJ CAN continue to probe classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago

A federal appeals court is allowing Justice Department lawyers to continue looking at the documents marked as classified that were taken from Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago during the August raid.

The emergency ruling overturns a trial judge’s order over those documents that blocked federal investigators’ work on the documents.

It’s unclear if Trump will appeal the ruling, which was a victory for the Justice Department and its investigation into the records Trump took with him when he left the White House. 

The appeals panel ruled that Florida Judge Aileen Cannon erred when she prevented federal prosecutors from using the 100 documents that were marked as ‘classified.’ 

‘[Trump] has not even attempted to show that he has a need to know the information contained in the classified documents,’ the three-judge panel from the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 29-page decision. ‘Nor has he established that the current administration has waived that requirement for these documents.’

Speaking to Hannity, the former president told of his shock at learning, while in New Jersey, that his Florida estate was being searched.

He also said that he was considering releasing footage of the search, despite the FBI asking him not to, to protect the identity of the agents involved.

Hannity asked him whether the documents seized over the course of three searches – in January, June, and August – were declassified, as Trump has repeatedly claimed, and the former president replied: ‘I did declassify, yes.’

Hannity asked him how they were declassified. ‘There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it,’ Trump said. ‘Different people see different things.

‘If you’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified. Even by thinking about it – because you are sending it to Mar-a-Lago or wherever you’re sending it.

‘It doesn’t have to be a process, it can be a process but it doesn’t have to be. You’re the president you make that decision. So when you send it, it’s declassified. I declassified everything.’

Trump spoke hours after a federal appeals court ruled that Justice Department lawyers could continue looking at the documents marked as classified that were taken from Mar-a-Lago during the August raid.

The emergency ruling overturned a trial judge’s order, which blocked federal investigators’ work on the documents. It’s unclear if Trump will appeal the ruling, which was a victory for the Justice Department.

Trump said that the agents ‘shopped’ through his possessions, and took items such as his will, which had not yet been returned to him. ‘They took a lot,’ he said. ‘I think they took my will – I found out yesterday. I said, where is it?’

Hannity said: ‘Am I in it?’ Trump, laughing, replied: ‘That could cause a lot of problems for people who won’t be happy – or maybe will be very happy. I think the fact they took my will is a horrible thing. They shopped.’

Hannity told Trump he had heard ‘they took your passport, the medical records, they took your tax records’ – adding that they also ‘took 500 pages of attorney-client privilege information.’

What are classified materials and who can declassify them?  

 The letter from the National Archives and Records Administration to Congress stated that it has identified items ‘marked as classified national security information’ within 15 boxes of information returned by Trump from Mar-a-Lago. The government maintains various levels of classified information. According to the Senate Intelligence Committee, ‘Top Secret’ information applies to information that could reasonably be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security.

One level down is ‘secret’ information, which could ‘reasonably could be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.’ Below that is information that is merely ‘confidential.’ That applies to information, ‘the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause damage to the national security.’ Notably, the letter from Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero did not state at what level the information is classified.

The government classifies voluminous material, and there is a longstanding effort by watchdog groups and some lawmakers to reduce the amount of classification. The Washington Post previously reported that some of the documents Trump took to Mar-a-Lago were clearly marked as classified, with some at the ‘top secret’ level.

It reported some were ‘extremely sensitive’ and would be limited to a small group of officials. It is a crime to mishandle classified information, and the letter from NARA states that it has been ‘in communication’ with the Justice Department.

The president has broad unilateral authority to declassify information. In 2019, Trump tweeted out a high-resolution image of an Iranian rocket launch, leading to questions about whether he had put out classified information. He later tweeted: ‘We had a photo and I released it, which I have the absolute right to do.’

Trump said the agents went through his personal quarters, and searched the rooms of his wife Melania and son Barron.

‘They came onto the site and wouldn’t allow any legal representation or representation,’ Trump said. ‘So they go into the rooms – my bedroom, my office, they go into my wife’s closet. My son’s bedroom.’

Trump said it was scandalous that 16-year-old Barron Trump’s room was searched, but Hunter Biden’s bedroom was not.

‘There’s a picture of Hunter Biden and Barron Trump – you look so innocent, and Hunter doesn’t look so innocent; they said his room was raided, but his wasn’t. There were terrible things.’

Trump, 76, was asked by Hannity why he had not released the surveillance camera footage of the search. ‘They’ve asked me not to do that because they feel the FBI agents might be in physical harm and danger,’ Trump said.

‘So I’ve not done it.’ Hannity replied: ‘You could pixel out their faces to protect their identity.’ Trump agreed, saying: ‘I guess I could do that.’

Hours before the interview aired a federal appeals court allowed DOJ lawyers to continue looking at the documents marked as classified that wore taken from Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago mansion.

The emergency ruling overturns a trial judge’s order over those documents that blocked federal investigators’ work on the documents.

The court that made the ruling was stacked with Donald Trump appointees. The former president appointed two out of three of the judges on the panel. The other was appointed by Barack Obama. But their decision was unanimous. 

‘It is self-evident that the public has a strong interest in ensuring that the storage of the classified records did not result in ‘exceptionally grave damage to the national security,” the appeals court said.

‘Ascertaining that necessarily involves reviewing the documents, determining who had access to them and when, and deciding which (if any) sources or methods are compromised.’ 

The department filed the appeal with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals after another federal judge, Aileen Cannon, who sits in Florida, ruled against the government’s request to separate documents marked ‘classified’ from those being sorted through by the special master. ‘They’re panicking,’ Trump lawyer Alina Habba said.

‘This is what happens. This is not what the DOJ is supposed to do. This is not what the FBI is supposed to do. But that is what I think is happening.’

‘Now the Department of Justice filed this crazy raid, pretending it’s all these criminal actions, because it’s around the corner to November, and this is what we like to call an October surprise, which we’ve seen before,’ she said.

She was referring to the August 8 FBI search of Mar-a-Lago. That came after correspondence between National Archives officials and Trump’s team went on for a year.

Trump returned 15 boxes of material to the government in January 2022. A grand jury subpoenaed documents in May. A DOJ official collected more material in June. And then the FBI took additional boxes in the search.

A federal appeals court is allowing Justice Department lawyers to continue looking at the documents marked as classified that wore taken from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago during the August raid. 

DOJ says the FBI obtained about 100 classified documents in the search, for a total of about 300 documents marked classified from Trump’s Florida golf club.

Habba’s comments come after Raymond Dearie, a veteran New York judge who has been appointed as special master, grilled a team of four of his attorneys in a Brooklyn courthouse Tuesday over their refusal to back up claims that he declassified files when he left office. 

‘You can’t have your cake and eat it too,’ Judge Raymond Dearie said when the former president’s legal team repeatedly refused to back up the claims in a tense court hearing in Brooklyn on Tuesday.

Dearie is tasked with reviewing a trove of government documents including information marked classified that FBI agents seized at Mar-a-Lago.

He was pressing Trump’s legal team with sharp questioning about whether they had evidence to back up the former president’s continued claims that he had declassified material when he left the White House.

His tough questions came as Trump’s lawyers and the Justice Department try to work through how to sort through boxes of government material that were held at Trump’s club after Trump left office. 

Some legal experts have said Trump could be in legal jeopardy even if he had declassified all the material that has been uncovered, since the government is investigating possession and handling of national security information, which could apply even if it weren’t classified. 

Trump lawyer Jim Trusty at one point said the lawyers were ‘not in a position’ to say whether Trump had declassified the documents until they could review them. 

‘You did bring a lawsuit,’ Dearie scolded him. 

Dearie also said that absent evidence from Trump’s lawyers, he would assume the document were classified as marked.

‘If the government gives me prima facia evidence that they are classified documents, and you don’t advance any claim of declassification, I’m left with a prima facia case of classified documents, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s the end of it,’ he said.   

 

‘How do you pay something if you’re not guilty?’ Trump rails against New York AG Letitia James for ‘vicious’ $250M campaign against his family business and says he was expecting her to SETTLE the case – as he chats with Sean Hannity at Mar-a-Lago

Former President Donald Trump revealed on Wednesday he had thought New York Attorney General Letitia James would settle her case against him, which he said he had problems with because he is not guilty.

The remarks came as the ex-president railed against James’ $250 million lawsuit, claiming Trump lied about his property values when applying for loans to expand his real estate empire.

Speaking with Sean Hannity from his home in Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday, Trump doubled down on his assertion that his property values are high, pointing to the decadence of Mar-a-Lago.

That is when he revealed: ‘I actually never thought that she would bring a case, and she brought it. And the reason I thought was because she didn’t have a case. 

‘I was of the impression that she wanted to settle,’ he claimed. ‘But I had a problem because how do you pay something even if it’s a small amount of money if you’re not guilty.’

The former president also noted that in his loan applications, he puts in a disclaimer telling creditors to appraise the values themselves — an apparent defense against the suit. 

He then went on to refer to the lawsuit as ‘just a continuation of a witch hunt that began when I came down the escalator of Trump Tower,’ and suggested that James had been after him since she first ran for office.

‘She campaigned on it four years ago, it was a vicious campaign,’ Trump said. ‘And she just talked about Trump and ‘We’re going to get him, we’re going to indict him, we’re going to get him.’

‘She knew nothing about me,’ he claimed. ‘I never heard of her, but I saw this woman, I saw this statement she was putting out without knowing anything.’

‘She said, ‘We’re gonna get him,’ her whole campaign was based on that,’ Trump continued. ‘Then she came after us, we have been going over this for years.’ 

‘We came down the escalator and it started,’ Trump claimed.

The FOX News host then asked the former president whether he ever filled out a loan application when he was running the Trump Organization, to which Trump replied: ‘Well, you know, we make loans, but I have very little debt.’

He added: ‘They have demeaned me for years with this stuff, and now they find out that I have very little debt, very, very little, a lot of cash — we have a great company and we have among the best assets anywhere in the world. 

‘I went through, they were demeaning me constantly these people. There is something wrong with them,’ he said, apparently referencing Letitia James.

‘I really believe that they hate our country.’

Hannity seemed to offer the former president a defense at one point, noting that loaners have 'a fiduciary responsibility to determine what the value' of each property is

 At that point, Hannity seemed to offer Trump a defense — saying loaners have ‘a fiduciary responsibility to determine what the value’ of each property is.

In response, the former president claimed that he has a disclaimer on each of his loan applications.

‘It basically says, ‘Get your own people, you’re at your own risk. This was done by management. So don’t rely on the statement that you’re getting.’

‘It basically says to an institution: ‘You’re going to loan money, you’re going to have to go out and get your own appraisers, your own lawyers, everything.’

Trump added that he does not have a mortgage on most of his properties, but if he did, appraisers would come in and compare it with nearby homes. 

New York AG Letitia James announced Wednesday that her office is suing former President Donald Trump and his adult children

Trump quickly hit back against the Attorney General, accusing her of being ‘racist’

Trump’s remarks on Hannity come just hours after he called James, who is black, ‘racist’ and accused her of bringing forward the lawsuit to help her ‘really bad poll numbers.’  

‘Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who failed in her run for Governor, getting almost zero support from the public, and now is doing poorly against Law & Order A.G. candidate, highly respected Michael Henry,’ Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social. 

‘I never thought this case would be brought – until I saw her really bad poll numbers. She is a fraud who campaigned on a ‘get Trump’ platform, despite the fact that the city is one of the crime and murder disasters of the world under her watch!’ 

In a follow-up post minutes later, Trump added: ‘Attorney General Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, a total crime fighting disaster in New York, is spending all of her time fighting for very powerful and well represented banks and insurance companies, who were fully paid, made a lot of money, and never had a complaint about me, instead of fighting murder and violent crime, which is killing New York State.

‘She is a failed A.G. whose lack of talent in the fight against crime is causing record numbers of people and companies to flee New York. Bye, bye!’

At a news conference on Wednesday, James said her suit comes after she reviewed 'millions of documents' with a team of investigators

She claimed that the president and his three adult children, Eric, Ivanka and Don Jr 'persistently' inflated the value of assets

She claimed that the president and his three adult children, Eric, Ivanka and Don Jr ‘persistently’ inflated the value of assets

James had said earlier in the day Wednesday that Trump and his children engaged in ‘numerous acts of fraud’ in a dramatic press conference as she announced the suit against the former president.

She cited documents that accuse Trump and his three adult children of pumping up property values when seeking lending to expand his real estate empire. 

‘Claiming you have money that you do not have does not amount to the ‘Art of the Deal. It’s the art of the steal,’ James said, referencing Trump’s famous book. 

The New York Attorney General specifically named Trump and his three adult children, Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump, and said they ‘persistently’ inflated the value of assets. 

She said she reviewed ‘millions of documents’ with a team of investigators, and told reporters she was suing Trump for ‘violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family and his company.’

James said he did so ‘to cheat the system and to cheat all of us,’ and is seeking $250 million – while asking a judge to bar Trump and his adult children from serving on boards, obtaining lending in the state, or engaging in real estate purchases for a period of five years. 

Trump would maintain his financial interest in the property even if a judge rules against him in the suit.

And although her suit is only a civil matter, James said she would refer evidence she uncovered to other authorities. 

She said Trump inflated his net worth to 'deceive banks' when seeking lending to expand his real estate empire

James said Trump’s financial statements were ‘greatly inflated, grossly exaggerated, and objectively false,’ and went on to detail many of those valuations that he claimed.

She accused them of creating ‘more than 200’ false and misleading asset valuations.

Among his alleged misdeeds, she accused Trump of ‘intentional and deliberate fraud’ by tripling the size of his Trump Tower penthouse apartment, thereby goosing its value.

She Trump claimed the apartment was 30,000 square feet. ‘In reality, the apartment had an area of less than 11,000 square feet.’ Based on the inflated square footage, the apartment was valued at $327 million.

‘To this date, no other apartment in New York City has ever sold for that much,’ she said.

 

Mar-a-Lago at $730M when it should be $75M, apartments inflated by 65 times and $127 M for a golf course losing money: The breakdown of properties New York AG claims Trump inflated and how he did it – as he claims SHE is the fraud

By Morgan Phillips, Politics Reporter For Dailymail.com

After a three-year probe into the former president’s finances New York attorney general Letitia James filed a civil lawsuit against Donald Trump on Wednesday for alleged ‘numerous acts of fraud.’ 

Following a review of ‘millions of documents’ with a team of investigators, she told reporters she was suing Trump for ‘violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family and his company.’  James specifically named Trump and his three adult children, Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump, and said they ‘persistently’ inflated the value of assets. 

The attorney general, who is running for reelection in November, claimed the financial benefit from the scheme in total was $250 million, including interest savings and transaction profits, and came in financial statements from 2001 to 2021. The former president, in turn, claimed James, who is black, is ‘racist’ and she herself is the ‘fraud.’

Here’s a breakdown of the lawsuit’s biggest accusations: 

Trump claimed his Trump Tower penthouse apartment was three times its actual size – and worth a whopping $327 million

According to James, Trump claimed his penthouse in Trump Tower in Manhattan was 30,000 square feet when in reality the place was only a third of that size – 11,000 square feet. Based on the inflated square footage, Trump valued the apartment at $327 million, a price which James called ‘absurd.’ 

‘To this date, no other apartment in New York City has ever sold for that much,’ she said.

Trump valued Mar-a-Lago at nearly 10 times what it was worth at $739 million

Trump’s Florida golf resort was valued at $739 million ‘based on the false premise that it was unrestricted property and could be developed for residential use,’ according to James. Her office pointed out that Trump donated the residential development rights of the property and sharply restricted making any changes. She claims that the property should have been valued at $75 million and brings in about $25 million in revenue per year. 

Trump valued his Park Avenue based on the units’ market value, though they were rent stabilized and worth far less at a total of $84.5 million

The Trump Organization received a valuation for Trump Park Avenue, a 32-story condo building with 120 apartments and eight penthouses, in 2020 at $84.5 million. 

On a 2020 statement of Trump’s financial condition he listed the property being worth $135.8 million. 

James’ team found that in 2011 and 2012, Trump ‘ignored legal restrictions’ listed 12 rent-stabilized units in the building by what they would be worth if they could be rented out at market value. Trump claimed the units were worth $50 million, over 65 times the $750,000 those units were appraised at in 2010. 

Trump valued his Seven Springs estate nearly ten times what it was appraised for only a few years prior at up to $291 million

In 1995 Trump purchased his 213-acre estate in Westchester County, New York  for $7.5 million. Two decades later in 2006 it was found to be worth $30 million, but Trump’s statements of financial condition from 2011 to 2021 found the property to be worth $261 million and $291 million.

Trump tears into ‘racist’ New York Attorney General Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James after she files suit against him

‘I never thought this case would be brought – until I saw her really bad poll numbers. She is a fraud who campaigned on a ‘get Trump’ platform, despite the fact that the city is one of the crime and murder disasters of the world under her watch!’

Trump listed the value of 40 Wall Street at over $300 million what it was found to be worth at $530 million

The Trump building at 40 Wall Street, where Trump owns the ground lease was valued at $220 million in 2012. The Trump Organization listed the property’s value at $530 million in 2013. 

Trump told Nevada tax authorities Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas was worth far less than what his financial statement showed at $108 million

 Trump owns a 50 percent stake in a hotel condominium tower together with businessman Phillip Ruffin. In 2015 the Trump Organization submitted a $24,950,000 valuation to contest taxes they owed to Nevada, but the same year his statement showed the property to be worth $108 million. 

Trump did not factor in escalating rent expenses for his Niketown valuation in the mid-$400 million range

Trump owns two ground leases for a space that adjoins Trump Tower that for many years he rented to Nike. In 2020 and 2021 Trump reported the value of the property was in the mid-$400 million range, while James’ office found the property to be worth $225-$250 million range, arguing that Trump had not factored in ‘escalating scheduled rent expenses.’ 

Trump used ‘deceptive techniques’ to list the value of his golf and social clubs 

James’ office found that Trump used a number of ‘deceptive techniques’ to estimate the value of his 12 clubs. The first is a ‘fixed asset scheme,’ where she says Trump valued the clubs based on fixed assets without factoring in any depreciation. Others schemes listed involved factoring the value of memberships into the valuation while listing Trump’s liability for those memberships as zero. A ‘brand premium scheme’ entailed the Trump Organization adding a premium to inflate the value of golf courses and clubs, often up to 30% for the ‘Trump Brand,’ while claiming that brand premiums were not included. 

Trump valued his Turnberry golf course on a fixed asset scheme at $127 million even though it has been operating at a loss 

In 2017, Trump’s golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, was valued at nearly $127million. But James insists it has operated as a loss since then, and says it was ‘false and misleading’ of Trump to use a valuation of the course based on a fixed asset scheme. 

 

Donald Trump tears into Joe Biden for ‘dismantling’ what he did in the White House and slams him for not finishing southern border wall – despite the ‘millions and millions’ of migrants crossing into America

Former President Donald Trump appeared in an interview with Fox News‘ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night and slammed President Joe Biden for ‘dismantling’ his achievements in the White House

Trump listed his accomplishments while he was President and said he was ‘so proud’ of what his administration did, including tax and regulation cuts, energy independence and the border wall. 

He went on to say ‘we did things nobody ever thought possible’ and then tore into Biden and his current administration when they ‘came along and just dismantled that.’

He said Biden’s reluctance to deal with the border crisis has allowed an influx of drugs into the country, and said ‘we were doing great, and now you’ve got drugs pouring into the country at a level that nobody has seen.

Trump claimed ‘we had drugs down 19% from what they were the previous year’ and also said the border crisis has allowed ‘millions’ of people to pour through. 

He also said the country ‘would have been energy dominant in a very short period of time,’ in a way that would have been ‘larger than Russia and Saudi Arabia put together.’

‘We really have a country that is going downhill,’ he said, calling the US a ‘country in decline’ that has ‘new problems.’

Trump said the country is 'in decline' but would have 'been energy dominant' if he had continued leading

Trump went on to claim his move to fill the country’s oil reserves would have meant ‘we would have been supplying China, we would have been supplying everyone.’

‘We had 500 years right under our feet,’ he said.

The interview comes after a federal appeals court is allowing Justice Department lawyers to continue looking at the documents marked as classified that were taken from Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago during the August raid.

DOJ says the FBI obtained about 100 classified documents in the search, for a total of about 300 documents marked classified from Trump’s Florida golf club.

It’s unclear if Trump will appeal the ruling, which was a victory for the Justice Department and its investigation into the records Trump took with him when he left the White House.
