Fox News reports that classified, Top Secret documents have been found missing from National Archives from the time period 1977 through 1981.  After a thorough investigation by the FBI, it was discovered that former President Jimmy Carter had them in his possession at his home in Georgia. 

 President Carter, who turned 98 back on October 1, 2022, claimed to have no knowledge of these documents being in his possession and denied removing them from the White House when he left office after serving one term as President.  The documents were seized by federal agents under a warrant issued by the Department of Justice.  They were found in President Carter’s master bathroom on the top of the toilet tank along with a couple of old copies of People Magazine and a Playboy from 1966.

 When returned to the National Archives it was discovered that the Top Secret documents related to some research on peanut allergies.  The goal of the research was reportedly to develop a peanut allergy toxin that could be used as a weapon of mass destruction.  Carter vehemently denied this assertion and said the goal of the research was to find a cure for peanut allergies.  Of course, as Fox News’s Tucker Carlson pointed out, Carter stood to benefit greatly if a cure was found just in peanut sales alone.  Interestingly, the Playboy magazine, has somehow mysteriously disappeared since being removed from the toilet.

 Attorney General, Merrick Garland, announced that prosecution of this case would supersede the cases against former Vice-President and now President Joseph Biden and former President Donald J. Trump, because of the heinous nature of WMD’s and the fact that anyone with access to Carter’s toilet could have easily seen this classified information and used it to their advantage; especially if there was no toilet paper left on the roll in that tiny room.

 Carter and his minions will face a grand jury summons and possible criminal indictment.  Republicans from the new Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, to M. Taylor Green leaped to the forefront to criticize Carter for his egregious actions while claiming that the charges against former President Trump should be dropped because he clearly declassified the hundreds of Top Secret documents found at Mar a Lago, even though there is no proof available.  Laura Ingraham of Fox News claims to have personally seen the magic wand Trump used to accomplish these declassifications, while CNN reported that it was actually just a short stick that Trump would use to pick his teeth.

 Former President Donald J. Trump has asserted not only that he declassified all of the documents he took to Florida when he finally left the White House, but for over a year presented one roadblock after another to prevent the National Archives (NA), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from retrieving the classified documents in his possession.  He sighted arguments that ranged from “I don’t have any documents” to “The documents I have were declassified because I thought about doing it in my mind” to “Executive Privilege”. 

 In the context of these inaccurate privilege assertions by United States presidents, law professor Michael Dorf has written: "In 1796, President George Washington refused to comply with a request by the House of Representatives for documents related to the negotiation of the then-recently adopted Jay Treaty with the Kingdom of Great Britain. The Senate alone plays a role in the ratification of treaties, Washington reasoned, and therefore the House had no legitimate claim to the material. Therefore, Washington provided the documents to the Senate but not the House."  

 Interestingly, history does not record where former President Washington stored the classified documents he removed from the White House, but unverified witness accounts claim there were classified documents at his Mt. Vernon home, in the outhouse and even on the boat with him when he crossed the Delaware River. 

 Washington was never investigated, assigned a “Special Counsel” to oversee an investigation, or charged with a crime.  Washington was not a member of any political party, he ran as a non-partisan candidate in the elections of 1789 and 1792 and remains the only President to get 100 % of the electoral vote.  However, some current day Republicans, behind closed doors, are discussing the possibility of exhuming Washington’s body and burning it in effigy for his flagrant disregard in securing classified material.
