Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said on Friday that former President Donald Trump should be indicted because he already “confessed” to taking highly classified documents to his Mar-a-Lago home after leaving the White House last year.
“…It is long past time to arrest Donald Trump for his obvious crimes, his ongoing crimes. Crimes to which he has confessed,” Kirschner said in a video he posted to Twitter. “He actually said ‘I took these documents’ more openly and more transparently than other presidents. It is not like there is some challenge in proving that Donald Trump took the documents openly and transparently.”
Kirschner said that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is treating Trump differently as it continues to investigate his mishandling of classified documents, which were seized by FBI agents in August following an approval from Attorney General Merrick Garland. Meanwhile, Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in regard to the documents and said that any classified documents that he took had already been declassified.
“You need to treat the former president, the way you treat every other American who commits crimes,” Kirschner added, referring to the way the DOJ is handling its investigation. “And Donald Trump is being treated better than and different than everybody else who commits any kind of crimes that are comparable, mishandles classified information and it’s wrong and it’s gotta stop.”
