They are so stupid. They think the raid might be justified! But there are no secrets to keep classified by a President. The role of the lower level people is to kept secrets and respect classification (like Hillary) until the President gives the direction to the country. A President is the commander in chief and doesn’t have to keep secrets. If Trump decides to bring one of his love letter to Kim Jung Un in a box, it is not classified. Nothing is a classified document to him. The raid at mar a lago cannot be justified in any shape or form. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/eric-trump-gives-clearest-indication-yet-possible-trump-2024-run-following-fbi-raid

In terms of letter of the law, you're right.

But in terms of de facto power, they stripped Trump on Jan 6 and didn't listen to a thing he wanted after, and that's their story and they're sticking to it.

Doesn’t work. President Trump had that declass power until January 20th. The law is the law and the unelected bureaucrats cannot « strip » any power from the President. Look below for my comment on impeachment. This power doesn’t belong to this crazed General Mark Milley or the chief legal counsel Pat Cippolne. They failed to follow the Constitution and learn about the objection process in dubious elections. The breach of the capitol was under investigation and they decided to get influenced by rumors that Trump launched it. That was not for them to decide and to take over the Presidency over rumors. And of course the trial has shown that Trump wasn’t aware that people would go inside and never asked or wanted that.

He had the de jure power, but if all agencies ignore him then it is obvious that he didn't have de facto power.

It doesn't matter what the book says if the ones who hold de facto power doesn't care. If it not a matter of law or principles to the left, they don't care about being hypocrites because it is a power game to them.

And I would go even further than DrCowboyPresident, they became open about Trump not having de facto power on January 6th but he clearly didn't have it for much longer.

Absolutely right. It was just made fully overt then.
