In a vehement defense of the former President, Tucker Carlson said that Donald J. Trump’s possible theft of nuclear secrets “pales in comparison” with Hunter Biden’s possible use of his father’s Netflix password.

“Let’s be clear: we don’t know if Trump stole nuclear secrets, and we don’t know if Hunter stole his dad’s Netflix password,” the Fox News host said. “But, if both of these things happened, what Hunter did was far worse.”

Expanding on his argument, Carlson said, “No one knows what Trump would do, if anything, with nuclear secrets. But Hunter Biden could have only one use for his father’s Netflix password: illegally obtaining streaming content for free.”
This is a direct quote from the New Yorker. And this is the umpteenth time. What's up Hobie?

Yeah, nah.


Mister Minister, you want perhaps to try dishing out some other malarkey?
Seriously? I put up a link from the national archives about classified documents in presidential libraries. I made no mention of Trump, Obama or Bidden. It makes no reference to how these are controlled in any presidential library or other facility.

It might show where Trump came up with the 30 million figure he wrongly cited but it does show that 30 million classified documents are a part of presidential libraries.

Whatever the hell you think you were responding to is something you pulled out of your own ass with your own shit stained fingers.

Yep,
Dark money gone and the education spend even if the R’s would get behind it (they won’t, they like their base dumb and easily manipulated) means you’ve got a dumb generation oozing through pipe right now with no real ability to clear the stupid.
Think it’ll get worse before it gets better.

Only thing to fix it will be more than a few State voters as pissed off as Kansas.
R’s need a serious ass kicking at the polls and the maturity to recognise it’s all their fault, of course they won’t.
It’s like meth addict you can’t help them till they hit rock bottom and then they plead for help.
For the R’s that’s a sign of weakness with hints of socialism and god forbid .......empathy.

The positive is that half the active members of the R party may be eligible to be excluded from running for or holding public office and a number might actually end up with stays of varying duration at a graybar Hilton near you.
This is worse. The Republicans have plummeted right thru rock bottom many times. They laughed and said "Watch this!" If you want to compare to drug addicition, the only thing to to do is let them OD and die.

Unless Team R! gets a serious ass-kicking at the polls, this country is in for some very tough times and probably the end. And as of now, I don't see that happening.

Trump could totally own the libs if he would just release the MAL surveillance tapes to show the search. Let everyone see exactly how it happened. Transparency! Why won’t He take the fight to America’s enemy and release the surveillance tapes?

The truth will set you free...

Obama issued an executive order give the POTUS and Veep exclusive rights to declassify documents... I think it's wrong headed and a bad idea but it is allowed...

Reading is fundamental.

...

No, Obama didn't grant the P+VP exclusive rights to declassify documents. For example, if Joe Blow classifies a document, as per Part 3.1b1, Joe Blow can declassify the document. So, no, the P+VP do not have exclusive rights.

Congress allocates budgets and grants authorities but the details are left to the agencies or in the case of something overarching, to the Executive Branch. What you have to show by actually reading it is where the EO varies from the authorities granted by the National Security Act of 1947, etc.

Why would TFG (or any former actual President of the US) have more than one valid passport?

Who issued the other ones?

I think this is his passport, his expired passport and his diplomatic passport (ex-presidents get these).

Damn.

This sounds great but how do you see it actually being carried out, or happening?? Especially when their comrades have so much power?

Transparency BEFORE the search!
Simultaneously released Warrant and Affidavit
No problem!

Your link, at the bottom, says

Declassifying these documents and making them publicly available is an important function of the Presidential Libraries and Materials staffs.​

Those people work for the Archives, not Obama's library. Are we done here?

If anyone else did this, what would the penalty be? He should be treated the same.
The problem lies in that this is uncharted water. Joe blow could never be in this position, and as far as we know, no previous former POTUS has taken classified materials home as a souvenir, or bargaining chip for sale.
