It appears that new developments are arising on a daily basis in the various legal cases involving former President Donald Trump.

One significant development this week, as reported by Fox News, was the discovery of an Obama-era Defense Department memo that could potentially dismantle Special Counsel Jack Smith’s case involving classified documents against Trump.

America Legal First (AFL) unearthed this “never-before-seen” memo, which indicates that the justification for the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate may have been unnecessary.

If even a fraction of the information revealed in the memo is accurate, it could be described as nothing short of a bombshell.

The AFL, a conservative legal group, released the Obama-era DoD memo “confirming the government may have already had originals of the alleged classified documents involved in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s sham prosecution against President Trump.”

Fox News noted:

The document, titled Memorandum of Understanding Entered into by Presidential Information Technology Community Entities, is from 2015, and followed an October 2014 Russian breach of the Executive Office of the President’s network. Then-President Barack Obama took executive action to create the Presidential Information Technology Community (PITC) to better protect the executive branch from such attacks, according to AFL.

The AFL and others have asserted that the memo provides evidence that the Department of Defense has been responsible for “operating and maintaining the information resources and information systems provided to the President, Vice President, and Executive Office of the President.”

In essence, the memo strongly implies that any classified documents found at Trump’s private residence were already within the DoD system, rendering a raid on Trump’s home unnecessary and potentially unwarranted.

A conservative legal group stated in a press release that the government already possessed “a substantial amount, if not all, of President Trump’s classified documents.”

If this is confirmed to be true, Smith and his prosecutors will face significant challenges in explaining their actions, as will the White House and President Joe Biden.

The AFL, in a statement, pointed out that the law only protects those of a certain political party.

“What America First Legal has uncovered after months of investigative work paints an unfortunate picture of the rule of law in Washington,” America First Legal Vice President Dan Epstein said.

He added, “A former President of the United States — the most democratically accountable officer under our Constitution — was subject to a politicized referral concocted by the Biden White House that led to an armed FBI raid of his home — where his wife and youngest child live — and is now subject to prosecution.”

“And to now realize that the Biden Administration could have avoided an illegal referral process to recover records the government already possessed, that it could have used normal means to ensure that records the former president believed should be housed in his presidential library (not yet built because of the hordes of investigations aimed at silencing him) were subject to a temporary hold for purposes of Archives’ review — yet didn’t — speaks loudly to America: the law protects only those who follow the norms of one party.”

It remains to be seen whether any additional steps will be taken in response to the recently discovered memo. It has the potential to significantly impact the situation.
