From President Donald J. Trump:

The official who triggered the federal probe into former President Donald Trump’s handling of classified documents opted against doing the same concerning Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

David Ferriero, who served as the director of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) from November 2009 until he retired this past April, said in a February letter to House Oversight Committee leadership that his staff had started communicating with the Department of Justice (DOJ) earlier this year.

In January, Trump returned 15 boxes of documents from his time in office to NARA after the agency notified him the material belonged to the federal government.

“Because NARA identified classified information in the boxes, NARA staff has been in communication with the Department of Justice,” Ferriero wrote in his Feb. 18 letter.

After negotiations regarding additional documents broke down between Trump and federal investigators in recent months, the DOJ obtained a search warrant to obtain additional missing documents. On Monday, FBI agents raided Trump’s southern Florida home seeking the documents.

  1. Hmmm, would this David Ferrero, be the same archives official that let Sandy Berger access the Bill Clinton archives to remove any damning paperwork with regards to 9/11 etc?

    Sandy Berger was never raided, because doncha know? “Sandy Berger is such a nice absent-minded character, he’s always forgetting where he puts things”, paraphrasing a chuckling Bill Clinton back in the early 2000s.

    So absent minded; he forgot that he had stuffed documents in his socks and trousers.

    Punishment for Sandy was a light slap on the hand by being barred from practicing law for a few years. In the end, Sandy, like all others in the Clinton circle would “die” prematurely.
