Furthermore it really grinds my gears when I see shit on Twitter along the lines of "The President automatically gets a clearance, and his cleared even after he is no longer President."
NO and NO.
The President gets access to classified info BECAUSE he is the president. That privilege expires upon leaving office.
Secondly, just because you have (for example) a Top Secret clearance DOES NOT give you immediate access to anything categorized as Top Secret. There is still a "need to know" basis. You are only granted access to Top Secret information IF you have the clearance AND it is pertinent to your job.
SCI (Sensitive Compartmentalized Information) is even more stringent. Once you get Top Secret, you have to apply for SCI, and the owner of the information will grant access if they want, and more often than not this requires an even more in depth background check than Top Secret, including lie detector tests. It can take over a year of investigation to get TS or TS/SCI.
Trump does not have a clearance. Not for Top Secret, sure as hell not for TS/SCI. And he sure as shit does not have a need to know for anything in those documents. Doubly so for nuclear information.
I'm tired of people defending this shit or ignoring that it's happened. Trump spent all of his presidency accusing others of treason, yet he blatantly commits it and all the right fucking says is "But Her Emails blah blah blah Hunter Biden's Laptop blah blah blah".
Enough. Enough of him already. Toss him in a deep hole or send him back to his handlers.
