Last night, the Mar-a-Lago resort was searched as a result of an investigation by the FBI into whether Trump moved secret documents from the White House to his Florida club.
At a long statement, the former president claimed that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) had broken into a safe in his residence to look for records.
The agents recovered a total of 15 boxes containing secret material, but did not elaborate on their contents.
According to the National Archives, Trump should have given over the documents upon leaving office, and it had sought an inquiry by the Department of Justice.
Multiple federal laws regulate classified records and sensitive government papers, including rules that make the removal and retention of such materials illegal.
As this has never occurred to a former president before, Republicans are understandably outraged, whilst Democrats are ecstatic and Hillary Clinton is capitalizing on the issue.
According to the Daily Mail, “Hillary used the opportunity to cash in on sales of the hats which bear the slogan ‘But Her Emails.”
The $32 each accessories were sold out online by mid-morning.
It is a sarcastic reference to Trump’s repeated references to the fact that she was investigated for deleting thousands of emails from a secure server during her time as Secretary of State, prior to her running for president.
Hillary tweeted the following on Instagram: ‘Every “But her emails” hat or shirt sold helps Onward Together partners defend democracy, build a progressive bench, and fight for our values.
‘Just saying! Link to get yours in my profile.’

She put a photo on her Instagram story, also, including a link, telling users to ‘get your hat.’
Onward Together is a PAC that Clinton founded in 2017 after she lost to Trump.
According to the Mail “It donates to left-wing groups such as Swing Left, Run for Something, Texas Civil Rights Project and Color of Change.”
There are several items for sale that use the slogan, including the hats. CONTINUE READING…
