    It seems many GOP congressmen and candidates are defending Trump's actions regarding the indictments just to play to Trump's base for votes. Trump's niece, Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist knows her uncle quite well. This is what she says about how he will react about the legal proceedings if they don't go in his favor.

    "Donald Trump will "burn it all down" if he doesn't get his way, after being indicted on seven counts related to his handling of classified documents, according to his niece and critic Mary Trump.

    In a blog post titled "On the Precipice of Worse," Mary Trump, 58, wrote there is "nothing he won't do to get away with his crimes," adding that "it will get worse before it gets better."
    Donald Trump, the first former U.S. president to face federal charges, has been ordered to appear before a Miami courthouse on Tuesday. Earlier this year, he was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in a separate case, connected with allegations he orchestrated the payment of hush money to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels in 2016, which he has denied.

    Polling indicates Donald Trump is the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, meaning the court cases could play a major role in the upcoming presidential election campaign. Legal experts have said he can still run for office, even if convicted.

    In her Substack blog post, Mary Trump wrote: "Donald Trump has been indicted again, for the second time in less than two months. This time the charges (seven counts—at least for now—will be read in Federal Court in Miami next Tuesday) are more serious, relating as they do to the fact that Donald stole classified and highly sensitive documents that belong to the United States government—that is, to the people.

    "I didn't use the word 'allegedly' before 'stole' because we know he took the documents from the White House after he no longer had legitimate access to them; we know that he refused to return them even [though] the National Archive asked him repeatedly and deferentially; we know that he lied about having returned everything; and we know that if anybody else in this country had done something similar—or even significantly less egregious—that person would have been arrested, handcuffed, and imprisoned a very long time ago."

    Donald Trump has denied any wrongdoing in his handling of classified documents, describing the case as "election interference" and "a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time," on his Truth Social website.'

      Must point out this as misinformation ---  "I didn't use the word 'allegedly' before 'stole' because we know he took the documents from the White House after he no longer had legitimate access to them; we know that he refused to return them even [though] the National Archive asked him repeatedly and differentially;"

      The timeline that offers the dates the boxes of documents left the White House, arrived at Trump's Golf Club Home, and when Trump notified the Archives that he had the documents show that Trump did not hide the facts he had taken documents. … -timeline/
      Jan. 14: Six days before the presidential transition, movers are photographed wheeling boxes out of the White House complex and placing them on nearby trucks.

      Jan. 18: CBS Miami reports moving trucks are observed at Mar-a-Lago.

      Jan. 19: Trump tells the Archives that he has designated Mark Meadows, Pat Cipollone, Pat Philbin, Scott Gast, Steven Engel and Michael Purpura, who served in his administration either within the White House or Justice Department, as his representatives to handle matters pertaining to records from his presidency.

      His niece using the word stole indicates her uncle intended to steal documents.   He most certainly notified the Archives that he did take Presidential documents. So, is it fair to post such a quote?  I realize it is her view, but her view does not reflect facts as we know them.

      If he stole them he certainly would not have notified anyone that he took them --- that would make little sense. The Great of her statement is
      open to view, but yet to be proven by the defendant.
