Trump is spiraling out of control and confirming potential criminal activity by claiming that Obama kept nuclear documents.
After admitting that he kept top secret nuclear documents in the morning, by Friday afternoon, Trump was claiming that Obama kept lots of top secret nuclear documents.
Trump said in a statement, “President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!”
Trump’s lie that Obama kept classified documents has been widely debunked. Obama did not take and keep documents. Former President Obama moved documents for his presidential library through the National Archives.
Barack Obama followed the law and worked with the government to get documents for his presidential library.
Trump ignored the law, stole classified and top secret documents, and then lied about being in possession of the documents.
Former President Obama didn’t keep nuclear documents.
Trump is digging the hole deeper by admitting that he committed crimes and is now spiraling out of control as he tries to justify his potentially criminal behavior.
