If everything that Trump did with classified documents was legal and proper, why is Team Trump lying about it?
The email exchange between GSA officials and [Trump aide Beau] Harrison is one of more than 100 pages of emails and documents newly released by the GSA that debunk claims from Trump and his allies that the government agency is to blame for packing the boxes containing classified documents that were later recovered by the FBI during the search of his Mar-a-Lago resort in August.
[The] new cache of emails adds new detail showing how documents from the Trump administration made their way to Florida -- and directly debunks attempts Trump and his allies have made to defend the former President by blaming GSA.
In an interview on Fox News on August 12, four days after the FBI search, former Trump defence official Kash Patel claimed the GSA was responsible for the documents being at Trump's Florida home.
"Even if (the documents were) classified ... they'll never meet the burden of intent because the president didn't pack it up and take it out himself, the GSA has said they did it and they made a mistake," Patel said. The GSA has never said they packed the boxes.
"They packed them," Trump said in an interview with Sean Hannity on September 23.
