Why did Trump take top Secret Nuclear documents?

    Following the FBI raid it has emerged that Trump had taken multiple boxes of top secret documents relating to the US nuclear weapons program and kept them at his golf resort.

    When Trump was asked to return them, he deliberately failed to return these documents.

    Why did he do this?

    So the answer seems to be either immense hubris that recklessly endangered us National Security, or treasonous intent.

    Neither are a good look for Trump or his followers.

    The legal consequences of this remain to be seen but I'm just baffled that he thought he could get away with it. Is this just more of his 'I could shoot a guy on 5th avenue and get away with it' mentality?

    I mean if he had even just photocopied the files and returned them he would have had a better chance of getting away with it than just taking the documents and keeping them...

    Don’t discount the possibility they WERE photocopies. Which would be a dead to rights situation. Making copies of TS/SCI? Snowden did this.

    Lolz no they don't look at Obama he didn't disappear, neither did Clinton or Bush.

    One has to be quite simple minded to think that "Trump had taken multiple boxes of top secret documents relating to the US nuclear weapons program and kept them at his golf resort."

    He would have to be complete crackhead to keep incriminating evidence on his laptop and then willingly hand it over to total stranger...

    Oh nevermind, that is different story. Yeah, is he a crackhead to keep "nuclear weapons program" documents in his safe? Trump's safe is boring. I would be more interested to see what was in Epstein's safe.

    I don't know what you're trying to say here at all

    But Hunter Biden/Jeffrey Epstein seems to be the gist of it

    Funniest post I've read in a while :) - genius!

    Would have worked even better if you'd said Hilary Clinton though.

    If this post contains the phrase "we're done here" it means I've proven what I set out to prove and I don't want to keep going round in circles.

    It's not about "winning" it's about illustrating a point.

    Fox: “Judge who signed warrant had ties to Epstein case”

    Fox: “here to talk about Trumps political persecution please welcome Alan Dershowitz”

    Can you link where the story of nuclear documents were found?

    imagine he was arrested .. be unbelievable

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,528 ✭✭✭✭Strumms

    None are front and centre every few days in the national and international media… they disappeared in the national and international context…did work, certainly, not courting publicity and espousing critical views on subjects of national and international importance non stop.

    Well, Biden's laptop supposedly held a lot of "evidence" about whole family shady dealing not to mention juniors drug and hookers escapades but somehow nothing happened to anyone... Epstein's safe also rumored to be stuffed with video and pictures of his visitors engaging in some shady business with his underage "friends and employees" - nothing of that ever seen light of the day... Now Trump's cellar supposedly holding boxes of nuclear weapons documentation, someone even mentioned nuclear "codes"...Throw in Loch Ness monster for good measure which supposedly exists according to latest "news"...

    This all show how most of the public is gullible and lap up every craziness spouted around because "if it was in the news it must be true" :)

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,617 ✭✭✭✭duploelabs

    Investigations happen because of evidence, there is nothing yet to be seem from a credible source about this supposed laptop with evidence . Still yet to hear anything but whataboutery from the right in defence of trump potentially trading top secret documents with adversary nations

    Ex-presidents can make hundreds of thousands of dollars per speech on the after dinner circuit. True, it's not as much money as you'd get selling classified intel, maybe, but it carries no legal jeopardy either.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,617 ✭✭✭✭duploelabs

    Given trump's well documented inability to fill a venue, I doubt that's a bread winner for him. And he doesn't have much to say bar the debunked stolen election, the longevity of his speaking circuit wouldn't be great

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,815 ✭✭✭✭briany

    It's not like he's getting a percentage of the box office on those kinds of speeches. It's a set fee for speaking at private dinners and gatherings. Considering Trump got more votes than any other Republican presidential candidate in history, I'd say he'd be able to get enough offers to speak for big money to make it worth his while.
