(FeaturedNews.com) – Leo Terrell, a civil rights attorney, stated during an appearance on “Life, Liberty & Levin” that former President Donald Trump’s attorneys were capable of filing one motion that would completely lead to special counsel Jack Smith’s case being over. Terrell was questioned about what he thought about the Presidential Records Act, especially in relation to the resignation and behavior of former President Richard Nixon.
The act specifically instructs presidents on how they are supposed to handle the official records and documents from their administration. Then-Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., also introduced a revision in 2014 that made the Act more transparent and relevant in the digital age.
The National Archives also notes that the PRA has set the responsibility for the management of the “records with the President.”
Host Mark Levin argued that Trump’s team should look into citing Democrat-appointed jurists like Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s ruling in the 2010 case against the transparency watchdog Judicial Watch which was looking to gain access to the cassettes that former President Bill Clinton had allegedly kept in his sock drawer.
Terrell argued that in his opinion this was the most important motion that Trump’s legal team could potentially file. The PRA would completely exonerate Trump, and this type of filing would mean that the prosecution would not have a viable response.
As he pointed out, Trump had the right to declassify all of the documents that were in his custody, and hands and prosecution would not be able to respond with anything to that.
