Trump Sends Letter to National Archives ‘In Defense of Office of the Presidency’

( Former President Donald Trump heard the news that the National Archives and Records Administration is being ordered to release privileged information and documents from his time in office – and he’s taking action.

The 45th president, who is widely considered to be preparing another run for office in 2024, sent a letter to the administration recently “in defense of the Office of the Presidency, the Constitution, vital principles of separation of powers, and on behalf of our great Nation.”

It’s not just a reference to the way that the administration has treated many historic documents, slapping trigger warnings on online versions of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence warning readers that the documents may contain upsetting content, but it’s also a reference to the recent White House order to presidential record keepers to publish a huge collection of Trump administration documents to the January 6 House Select Committee.

In the letter, Trump referred to the ongoing Russia Witch Hunt – the failed attempt to prove that he colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election – as well as the two failed impeachment trials. The requests, Trump said, are “not based in law or reality” and that it’s “just a game to these politicians.”

The statement was issued from his Save America PAC, and slammed politicians for being “drunk on power” and issuing dangerous assaults on the Constitution and legal precedent.

The House Select Committee demanding the documents is far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s ultra-partisan “January 6” committee, which is attempting to prove that the former president incited a violent riot. They have not yet been successful.

“This Committee’s fake investigation is not about January 6th any more than the Russia Hoax was about Russia,” Trump said.

The former president also warned that he will now allow the radical Democrats or the Biden administration to “get off without accepting blame for their incompetence and failures.”

He might be right, but is any government agency – ie, the swamp – going to listen to Trump on this one?
