Looks like the National Archives is a member in good standing of the liars club.

National Archives dismissed claims of mishandled Obama-Biden documents weeks before first batch was found | Fox News

 

There's a big difference between a mistake and a lie. 

More importantly, what does this have to do with Trump's document scandal timeline?

Actually I agree with a lot of what that article said, especially:

".....any prosecution of Trump will be narrowly based: not on the possession of secret documents but on obstruction of justice."

Which is the point I have been making all along.  It represents the crux of the difference between the two cases.

Like I said, had Trump behaved like Biden and cooperated with the Archives directory, we'd only be discussing the general problem of politicians taking documents they shouldn't be. (Which is apparently, quite common.)

As it is, if Trump is held accountable, it will be because  - unlike Biden - he resisted returning them (aka obstruction).

It also expresses that the whole mess is beneficial to the GOP which you disagreed with in an earlier post.

As a side note....if you what to play the down vote game I'm in:tease:

You do believe a mistake is not the same as a lie don't you?

But you posted it as a response to my post which was about  the time line for Trump.  You should have just posted as an independent statement since it had NOTHING to do with my post.

Well, the GOP will certainly try to make it beneficial to them by trying to equate them. 

But my point is they cannot push for a thorough investigation of Biden without including the same sort of investigation of Trump.  

Biden will get a pass on simply taking the documents (as would have Trump without his resistant response.) 

The Trump investigation will focus on that resistant response.  This also opens up the question of intent - why did he not want to simply return them?

Furthermore, the quantitative - if not qualitative - differences in the respective document troves will come out. My understanding is that Trump kept far, far more than Biden did.

Bottom line, Trump - who is running for the Republican nomination - is way more vulnerable legally than Biden on this.  Both were wrong initially, but Trump's subsequent behavior was much worse, criminal in fact.

So, if Republicans think they are going to come out ahead on this, they are mistaken.

I guess we are now at $139,000 dollars now instead of $400,000:

 

I wonder if this is doubled for couples.  I guess we’ll find out.

Pssh...details. Knowing trivial stuff like, oh, actual Cabinet positions (for which he purportedly submitted nominees) doesn't matter a whit.

I mean, hell, Secretary of War would have been better, and that position was abolished over 75 years ago to create the current SecDef spot. That was back when Joe was driving 18-wheelers and telling Corn Pop what was up.
