Brandon on Friday spoke with reporters as he prepared to depart the White House for another vacation in Delaware.
A reporter asked Brandon if Trump could have declassified all the documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.
President Trump recently described the declassification process in a statement to John Solomon of Just The News.
“He had a standing order that documents removed from the Oval Office and taken into the residence were deemed to be declassified,” Trump’s office said in a statement to Just The News. “The power to classify and declassify documents rests solely with the President of the United States. The idea that some paper-pushing bureaucrat, with classification authority delegated BY THE PRESIDENT, needs to approve of declassification is absurd.”
According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, the FBI seized documents related to its Spygate scandal.
Brandon scoffed at Trump’s declassification claims in response to a reporter asking questions about the affidavit.
“Could he have just declassified them all?” the reporter queried.
Brandon mocked Trump as he declined to comment on the unsealed FBI raid affidavit.
“I’ve declassified everything in the world. I’m president. I can do it all. Come on! Declassified everything,” Brandon said in a snarky tone.
“I’m not gonna comment because I don’t know the details. I don’t even want to know. Let the Justice Department take care of it,” Brandon said.
Brandon expects the public to believe he had no clue his DOJ/FBI was going to raid Trump’s home after Brandon himself eliminated Trump’s executive privilege.

Brandon’s corrupt Justice Department on Friday released a heavily redacted version of the Trump raid affidavit.
20 out of the 32 pages are either fully or partially redacted.
Brandon’s DOJ is so corrupt that it redacted their reasons for redactions in their justification for raiding Trump’s home!
DOJ and FBI are so corrupt that they’re redacting their reasons for redactions in their justification for raiding a U.S. president’s home.
