Appearing on Hannity Wednesday night, President Trump declared that he doesn’t see how the Justice Department could prosecute him because as President he had the power to declassify documents by just thinking about it.
Hannity asked Trump “is there a process” to declassifying material and “what was your process?” to Which Trump replied “There doesn’t have to be a process as I understand it.”
“Different people say different things. If I understand, there doesn’t have to be,” Trump continued, adding “If you’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified. Even by thinking about it because you are sending it to Mar-a-Lago or wherever you’re sending it.”
“It doesn’t have to be a process,” Trump further claimed, adding “there can be a process but it doesn’t have to be. You’re the president, you make that decision. So when you send it it’s declassified. I declassified everything.”
Elsewhere during the interview, when Hannity talked about the potential of prosecuting Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, Trump pivoted the conversation back to himself.
“I don’t think this is prosecutable. Under the Presidential Records Act there is no retribution or prosecution. You’re supposed to negotiate,” Trump stated.
He continued, “We’re talking about documents. We’re talking about documents that actually are being watched over to a certain extent and I would say to a large extent by the Secret Service if you think about it. But I can imagine. You mention the word prosecution. I don’t hear the word prosecution.”
“I don’t see how they could prosecute me,” Trump reiterated.
