Former President Donald Trump said Wednesday on FNCs Hannity thata president of america can declassify any documents with out a process.
Hannity said, A president gets the capacity to declassify.
Trump said, Correct.
Hannity said, You have said on Truth Social, several times, you did declassify.
Trump said, I did so declassify yes.
Hannity asked, That which was your process to declassify?
Trump replied, There doesnt need to be a process, when i understand it. You know, theres different people say different things. As I understand, there doesnt have to be. If youre the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, Its declassified. Even by thinking about it. Because you are sending it to Mar-a-Lago or where ever you are sending it. There doesnt have to be a process.There can be a process, but there doesnt have to be. Youre the president. You make that decision. So when you send it, it is declassified. I declassified everything.
He added, I would say thattheres a very good chance thata lot of those documents willnever be seen again.
Trump added, They spied on my campaign, so whydid they come in and do that? Especially since we were havingsuch great conversations.
