    I'm not making an argument, just thinking out loud. Everyone else seems to 'know' details that I can't possibly 'know', so I'm trying to provide food for thought while we await more information.

    The mainstream news showed him taking boxes of documents out of the White House as he was moving out? I must have missed that.

    Shit happens, I'm sure you remember Obama telling Medvedev on a hot mic to make sure Putin knows he'll have more flexibility after the election.

    Lots of high ranking government officials have SCIF's in their residence. I'm guessing some portion of Mar a Lago was designated as a SCIF while he was in office.
