As he understands it

Sometimes the alibi just makes the crime worse. Trump on his “declassifying” prowess:

In his first TV appearance since a court-authorized search of his Florida home last month, Donald Trump reasserted Wednesday that any documents taken from the White House to Mar-a-Lago were declassified while he was in office, adding that a president can carry that out “even by thinking about it.”

“There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Well, as he understands things isn’t a very good measure of the things. Also it’s the kind of thing he should have been very sure about, not the kind of thing he qualifies with a “could be wrong” disclaimer.

“If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified,” the former president added.

“You’re the president — you make that decision.”

Yeeaahh no that’s not it. It’s not a perk, like you get to use the pool whenever you want to. It’s not something you get to do so that you can brag to your friends. It’s not something you get to do just because you want to take the documents with you in the golf cart.
