This is why Trump isn't included in group photos of ex-presidents or invited to any former president get-togethers.

In August, after the FBI recovered classified documents and numerous other presidential records from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and resort in Florida, Trump declared that Obama had taken millions of presidential documents to Chicago. The National Archives and Records Administration quickly debunked his assertion, explaining it was NARA itself, not Obama, that took the documents to a NARA-managed facility in the Chicago area.

Then, at a rally in Arizona on Sunday, Trump not only repeated the false claim about Obama but added near-identical dishonesty about previous presidents George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Most dramatically, Trump said, “George H.W. Bush took millions of documents to a former bowling alley and a former Chinese restaurant; where they combined them. So they’re in a bowling alley slash Chinese restaurant.” Trump added, “A Chinese restaurant and a bowling alley. With no security and a broken front door.”

Trump also claimed that “Bill Clinton took millions of documents from the White House to a former car dealership in Arkansas” and that “George W. Bush stored 68 million pages in a warehouse in Texas.”

Facts First: All of these Trump claims are false.

    Trump clearly isn't sane. He also lies every time he says that those documents are "mine" when in fact they never were his. Donald Trump a total nutcase - always has been.

    ***

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Monday spotted the moment he believes Donald Trump essentially confessed to illegally storing classified government records at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

    At a weekend rally in Arizona, Trump admitted: “I had a small number of boxes in storage at Mar-a-Lago guarded by Secret Service and my people and everybody. I mean it’s safe.”

    The former president later added: “There is no crime. It’s not a crime and they should give me immediately back everything that they’ve taken from me because it’s mine, it’s mine.”


    O’Donnell said that with those comments, Trump has “in front of thousands of witnesses … proved beyond a shadow of a doubt his criminal intent to continue to illegally possess government records, including classified records.”

    “Donald Trump, with that statement, made it clear that he had the criminal intent and planned to never return the government’s property to the government,”
    he continued.

    Trump’s rally comments blew apart his potential defense that he simply didn’t know the documents were there, said O’Donnell, who pointed out that the excuse may have created “enough reasonable doubt in the mind of a jury” to acquit Trump if he’s charged.

    Trump was essentially “taunting Attorney General Merrick Garland to indict him,” said O’Donnell.
