Trump’s Hollow ‘Empty Folders’ Defense

Trump’s Hollow ‘Empty Folders’ Defense

Former President Donald Trump’s latest defense for having classified documents found by FBI agents at his Mar-a-Lago home is that many of them were simply “empty folders” stamped “classified” on the outside that Trump kept as mementos. The FBI says it did find dozens of empty folders, but it also found 103 classified documents.
