Mark Meadows Just Complicated Donald Trump's Defense in the Classified Docs Case
By Bonchie | 7:39 AM on August 21, 2023

News of what Donald Trump's former chief of staff told special counsel Jack Smith regarding the classified documents case in Florida is spreading. According to reports, Mark Meadows testified that he was not aware of any standing order to declassify any materials that the former president took with him to Mar-a-Lago.

Appearing to contradict former President Donald Trump's primary public defense in the classified documents case, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has told special counsel Jack Smith's investigators that he could not recall Trump ever ordering, or even discussing, declassifying broad sets of classified materials before leaving the White House, nor was he aware of any "standing order" from Trump authorizing the automatic declassification of materials taken out of the Oval Office, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

In Government, "official" actions are usually documented and communicated in writing to create a permanent, archivable record for posterity.

Government does not use psychic communication or Vulcan mind melds to conduct official business.
