You initially said, "the documents." That infers all the documents because you didn't make exceptions. And "some" of the documents could mean two that weren't classified. I don't know that. The keys and codes have a lot to do with a SCIF. Had you ever worked in one, you would know that. Again, you're talking about stuff you've never worked in. The closest thing you've got "knowledge" of is TV and movies.
AGAIN, I'm not arguing or defending anyone or anything. If the case is what you say, what I said before, still stands. If he's wrong he's wrong. Period. End of fukking story.
Regarding the "declassification" issue. This is new territory for the US. Typically, the declassification process is a rather lengthy one, and very selective.
Can the "president" do that? Yeah. it's "legal." Why any president would do that post-president is a mystery to me. And if it's not marked appropriately, it doesn't matter anyway. I'm "assuming" that neither (legally) declassified anything at this point. That's my starting "assumption." And has been since the start. You're getting wrapped around the wheels about something that doesn't really matter in the big scheme of things. You're cutting down the saplings to get to the forest.
