President Donald Trump was asked during an interview on Real America’s Voice if his campaign would be affected by a conviction and sentencing from one of his indictments, and he replied, “Not at all.”
During the Friday morning interview, he said, ”There’s nothing in the Constitution to say that it could.”
President Trump also decried the questionable charges, stating, “These people are sick. What they’re doing is absolutely horrible.”
He noted that Presidents Obama, Bush, and Clinton took documents with them upon leaving the White House and that this is a commonly known behavior that has been accepted for decades.
President Trump then laughed at the Bill Clinton socks case. He said, “Take a look at Bill Clinton off the socks case. Where he took them out in his socks.”
All joking aside, he pointed out the severity of the situation. “Nobody’s ever gone through this. This is crazy.”
He then cited the Presidential Records Act. The courts interpreted this after Bill Clinton stored classified information recorded on audio tapes in his sock drawer.
Judicial Watch weighed in on the current legal troubles President Trump is facing and reminded Americans that the judge presiding over the Clinton case, Amy Berman Jackson, paved the way to exonerate Trump.
She is quoted stating “that the president had an absolute, unreviewable right to take any records or documents that he wants when he leaves office.”
“No one can come back and second guess or double think or ask questions about what the president elects to take with him,” she added.
Jackson also wrote in her ruling, “the President enjoys unconstrained authority to make decisions regarding the disposal of documents: ‘[a]lthough the President must notify the Archivist before disposing of records . . . neither the Archivist nor Congress has the authority to veto the President’s disposal decision.'”
President Trump is aware of this and stood firm in his position to maintain his innocence and his 2024 presidential campaign. He said, “At most, they have a civil case.”
