‘He didn’t like to read’: Missouri paper highlights a ‘particularly curious’ element of Trump’s document stash

The news, Louis Post-Dispatch, called out former President Donald Trump’s well-documented distaste for reading, raising the question of why a former president who doesn’t read would want boxes of documents at his home.

The Post-Dispatch made reference to a series of surprising reports published last week that included nearly two dozen boxes of federal government-related documents and top-secret material allegedly leaked by the FBI last Monday at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. was found in , were found in.

Given the former president’s tendency toward boredom, a general lack of interest in reading and love for TV, the editorial board writes against the background that the Mar-a-Lago basement contains 25 boxes full of government documents containing top-secret is the material.

Seems particularly curious why Trump would want them at his private residence when he didn’t like to read and had no legal right to keep them? Referring to Trump’s relentless 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton on his personal email saver, the editorial board stressed that Trump must understand how serious it is to illegally maintain classified documents.

When the FBI collected 15 boxes full of documents at Mar-a-Lago earlier this year, Trump must have had a good reason to hide the existence of the other 10 boxes. Only after a federal judge authorized the search last week.

The editorial board criticizes Republicans who are adamant on the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago, but remain silent on Trump’s decision to take down documents that never belonged to him.

Regardless of the justification, the documents were never his and Republicans who are against the FBI’s finding should first ask why it was okay for them to break the law in the first place.
