Espionage Act is being used.this is why.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espionage_Act_of_1917

...almost impossible, if not impossible, to mount a defense" against charges under the Espionage Act.
Defendants are not allowed to use the term "whistleblower", mention the First Amendment, raise the issue of over-classification of documents, or explain the reasons for their actions.

"I was the president of the United States. The entire power of the executive branch was vested solely in me. Any documents in my possession were declassified, by me, prior to leaving office. So please suck a fat dick."

That's a pretty powerful defense.

This is what happens next at trial: Your honor my client declassified this information prior to leaving office.

DOJ: the material we recovered was not declassified and contains still classified information

Attorney: your honor my client can identify the documents he declassified

DOJ: object, defendant cannot review or identify these documents they are classified

Attorney: how can my client defend himself if the documents cannot even be reviewed

Judge: I reviewed them and determined they are classified and cannot be objected to, we accept the FBIs statements as fact please confer with opposing counsel in regards to a negotiated sentence.

Comments like this make me embarrassed. Especially when it’s so upvoted. Certain classified documents presidents do not have the power to declassify, and that includes things related to nuclear

It's simply an incredible coincidence that, according to the FBI, Trump had the one kind of documents that guarantee he committed a crime.

Cite it. Cite the specific laws because from my research and understanding classification/declassification falls under executive orders created in the past thus giving the President broad authority. I will concede that only the nuclear codes are the ones the President cannot declassify. They fall under the Secretary of Energy.

Mother_of_gains 7 points ago +7 / -0

Correct. An executive order is an order from the executive to his organization. He is not bound by it. Sorry.

Mother_of_gains 10 points ago +10 / -0

Because the rest of the executive branch is bound by them.

And this isn't just my argument. This is the argument of constitutional scholars.

The president IS the executive branch. If any member of the branch has authority to do something, so does the president.

This applies to Biden as well. Sorry if you don't agree. Go back to your make believe word of it makes you feel better.

I was just reading something that because the power of classification comes from the executive powers in the constitution, that no agency under the president (because they draw their power from him) or legislative body can put any restrictions on it as it would create a constitutional crisis. The senate can't tell the president he can't unclassify something, even if they pass a law saying so, because the law itself would be unconstitutional.

There are no checks on the president within the executive branch. The president is the executive branch. All of the departments derive their power from him.

That's why the president can't be arrested for a federal crime while in office. Because the justice department derives their power from the president, and ultimately he would just overrule their decision to indict.

None of the standing departments in the executive branch hold any power that the president himself does not hold. It would be a logical absurdity if they did, because their power is derived from his power.

I don't think he can declassify nuclear codes under 42 U.S.C. §§ 2011-2021, 2022-2286i, 2296a-2297h-13

Everything else is completely fair game

11
Mother_of_gains 11 points ago +11 / -0

Please try to follow along. The president isn't the head of the executive branch. He IS the executive branch. If anyone in the executive branch is authorized to declassify, the president himself, by definition is authorized to declassify.

There is no power that someone in the executive branch holds, that the president himself does not hold. All power held by every position in the executive branch is derived from the authority of the president. There is no executive authority that is not the president's authority.

Hope that helps you out.

Mother_of_gains 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yeah, you're not getting it. People at the DOE are authorized to declassify nuclear related documents.

The DOE is part of the executive branch.

Any employees of the DOE have authority delegated by the president, who IS the executive branch.

It is impossible for Congress to delegate powers to the executive branch, and NOT delegate them to the president. He isn't a specific member of the branch. He is the ENTIRE executive branch. Authority held by any member of his organization is also held by him.

I'm not sure why you can't understand that. Please show me the section of the constitution where it says the DOE is it's own branch of government, with authority that supersedes the executive branch.

Oh wait. That doesn't exist.

-4
TrueFlagPatriot420 -4 points ago +3 / -7

Man if you want to be in denial then whatever that’s up to you. I have a line, trump hasn’t crossed it yet, but if this is true this is where my line is crossed

But honestly I think it’s not only sad but scary that you are defending this. You are defending a president taking top secret nuclear information. If that was true what do you think his purpose in having it would be?

If Biden did that you would want him to pay and you know. And you would be right

You're denying that the DOE cannot have power the president doesn't also have.

Which makes you delusional, or you don't understand that the president is the entire executive branch. Like, conceptually you're not getting it.

You're the one making the claim, it is your responsibility to provide the evidence for it. A direct link to the act and paragraph to support your claim therefor is incumbent upon you and not the person who you are seeking to educate.

TrueFlagPatriot420 -3 points ago +1 / -4

Think about what you’re saying also. You would be fine with them having these documents… why? If Biden declassified top secret classified information just so he could take it with him after being president you would be pissed, and rightfully so

Mother_of_gains 5 points ago +5 / -0

Me being pissed and him having the authority to do it are two separate things.

-2
TrueFlagPatriot420 -2 points ago +1 / -3

He didn’t have the authority to do it, that’s the thing man.

I’ve been rooting for him, but I think (hope) everyone has a line, and this would be mine

3
Mother_of_gains 3 points ago +3 / -0

He absolutely had the authority. Members of the DOE have the authority to declassify.

The DOE is a part of the executive branch. All of their power is derived from the power of the president. No member of the DOE can have authority that the president himself doesn't also possess.

Sorry. Those are facts jack.

https://sgp.fas.org/othergov/doe/rdfrdhtm.html#I3

“ With the advent of nuclear weapons and their enormous destructive capability, the United States recognized the need to establish a special classification system to ensure that its nuclear secrets were well protected. On August 1, 1946, President Truman signed the Atomic Energy Act of 1946 which established the category of classified information known as "Restricted Data" (RD). This Act gave the Atomic Energy Commission (now the Department of Energy (DOE)) unilateral authority over this information. The 1946 Act was superseded by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 which established another category of classified information known as "Formerly Restricted Data" (FRD) for which DOE and the Department of Defense have joint responsibility. This pamphlet provides a brief orientation to the RD and FRD classification system.”

King5150 2 points ago +2 / -0

so where exactly is the paragraph which outlines the Executive/ President can not declassify any document relating to the Atomic Energy Act.

2
Mother_of_gains 2 points ago +2 / -0

Hey, jack. This might be hard for you to comprehend.

But I'll talk real slow.

The department of energy is a part of the executive branch.

The president IS the entire executive branch.

All executive branch powers are vested solely in the president.

Any authority that the DOE has, is derived solely from the executive power of the president.

The DOE cannot have review power (or any power) that the president himself, as the embodiment of the executive branch, does not also hold.

You are claiming that the DOE has power separate, distinct, and higher than the power of the president. Which is a logical absurdity, because any power the DOE has is derived from the president.

Basic shit.

It’ll be the same as Alex Jones - documents that don’t exist. So he destroyed the documents. They will then charge him with destruction of classified material. After that he “can’t hold office” which scotus will overrule because constitution is clear you can’t bar someone for running for president for that.

The FBI makes this kind of argument all the time. In cases both mundane and political. They say if they ask nicely for the evidence then the parties would probably destroy it. So normally, they come in guns blazing. Anyways, this is always the excuse for raids. And courts always buy it.

FWIW, normal cops do the same thing with utterly mundane drug busts, often resulting in someone getting shot for no good reason.

1
TheSuperStableGenius 1 point ago +1 / -0

"There is no question that the former President has no authority to retain classified material and that the government has a legitimate right to retrieve such material."

Zerohedge assumes the material is classified. If it is not then the government has no right.

There is no "CONFIDENTIAL HUMAN SOURCE", the source is the FBI agents who thumbed through it like they were looking at old magazines at a yard sale back in June they don't need a source.

1
Bonami 1 point ago +1 / -0

The real question is why any raid at all because as Trump said, there was a standing order that ANY DOCs taken from the WH to Mar-a-Lago were automatically declassified.

They have nothing on him and they are losing their minds, crazy people are very, very dangerous.

The FBI would have found 'the red button' if they rang the door bell instead of breaking in the side doors.

Biden was looking for 'the red button' and everyone went into panic mode when he couldn't find it. They told him he could push it 2020.
