President Trump Lawfully Handled His Presidential Records But VP Biden Violated Espionage Act and Other Federal Statutes Related to Theft of Government Property Per Attorney Mike Davis

Joe Biden broke the law while President Trump did not.  There is a big difference between their handling of classified material according to attorney Mike Davis.

Attorney Mike Davis, who worked under Senator Charles Grassley and Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch knows what he’s talking about on this subject.

Davis wrote a report that was published in Newsweek.    In the article Davis shared:

As a matter of clarity, let’s contrast Biden’s theft of classified documents with Trump’s lawful handling of presidential records. As the commander-in-chief under our Constitution, the president of the United States has the absolute power to declassify records as he sees fit. In addition, under the Presidential Records Act, a departing president can take a personal copy of any of his presidential records—classified or not. The vice president is afforded neither of these privileges.

That’s not all. Trump stored his personal records at a federally funded office with federally funded staff with the appropriate security clearances and access to a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (usually referred to as a “SCIF”) to handle such sensitive material. The Office of the Former President also receives lifetime protection by the Secret Service. Congress has statutorily granted former presidents the ability to take their classified presidential records when they leave office. On the other hand, then-Vice President Biden stole President Obama’s classified presidential records and put them in his personal files in an abandoned office, his home office, and a garage with none of these precautions whatsoever. That violates the Espionage Act and other federal statutes dealing with theft of government property.

Davis shared this on the War Room yesterday:
