CHINA/CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS/IRAN: “Donald Trump’s lawyers provided a more detailed explanation in a court filing Thursday evening [November 10, 2022] as to why they say the former president had the authority to personally declassify sensitive government documents, though they again stopped short of saying Trump actually declassified materials that he kept after leaving the White House…

The president, they said in the filing, would be considered the supervisor of whoever classified any of the documents, some of which deal with the most sensitive government secrets involving countries including Iran and China.”

-Perry Stein, “In filing, Trump lawyers again claim he had right to declassify documents,” washingtonpost.com, November 11, 2022
