(PALM BEACH, FLA) — Did former President Trump use “Jedi mind-tricks” to declassify sensitive documents he had stored inside his Mar-a-Lago estate?
The answer is yes. This is what he told FOX’s Sean Hannity last night.

Trump told Hannity that a President can declassify documents just by “thinking about it.”
As it turns out, Jedi mind-tricks are real. They are commonly known as the art and science of persuasion.
If you are sufficiently skilled in persuasion you can pull an Obi-Wan on the scary Stormtroopers in your life, and turn them to your way of thinking.

The DOJ is asking Trump’s attorneys for proof that the former president had officially declassified the top secret documents as he has stated.
So far, his attorneys have not provided proof, waffling by saying that if Trump is indicted they will need to keep that information for his defense.
Also, a federal appeals court yesterday permitted the Justice Department to resume its examination of the records in question as part of its ongoing criminal investigation.
