Clearly Trump isn't bright enough ...

to know what documents to steal and which to return, while keeping others. This was clearly done to lilne his pockets and/or cover his enormous debts, so the docs had to have high value. Someone who understood what was what had to have selected them. *General* Flynn, looking at you.

1. Trump just looked at everything in the White House and said "mine! "

2. Yeah, there's that

"Looks like it might be important, pack it! I want it all!"

3. That's the scenario I imagine. Michael Cohen said as much

5. Yes, it so matches his personality

Even if he doesn't want it, he has to have it. It doesn't matter how much he has, it is never enough. Meanwhile, anything that undercuts the Biden administration is worth pursuing. He is such a sick person.

12. That would have required large truckloads of materials

Millions of documents, he had to know which had monetary value, and which did not. That took an understanding of the contents of what was taken

4. Nope. Looking at Jared. He had full security clearance.

7. That's an interesting possibility

And he knew more about what was going on than his clueless father-in-law with no attention span.

10. And absolutely zero military knowledge

Nope, it was someone who knew what to select, someone who has already dealt with Russian covertly. Kushner was involved certainly, but he didnít select what was important.

6. Also, they would have to be selected and transported--

to the White House?

Axios suddenly brought up the name of Molly Michael, Trump's assistant, who apparently took the day off Jan 6 (or most of it). She would have been the one who kept handwritten notes of his calls during that time.

She and Cassie Hutchinson were apparently involved in packing up Trump's things (not personally, maybe directing it) and taking them down to Mar-a-Spyo.

Axios article:
https://www.axios.com/2022/03/31/trump-molly-michael-jan6-white-house-call-logs

Honest question-- why wouldn't he burn the documents? "See! I don't have them!"
(Of course, they said that about Nixon and the tapes.)

9. Interesting question

And I've wondered the same thing. I know there is the possibility of selling some of them, but I also wonder if even Trump was afraid to go too far. Maybe he was a bit intimidated with the label "Top Secret".

13. If it represented money, power, or appealed to his narcissism he had it packed up.

Did Donnie do the packing, not a chance in hell. He wouldn't stoop even to keep it on the down low.

Someone did it at his direction. I don't that he had to conspire with anyone though. Maybe Bannon, Flynn and others pitched into to decide what was most lucrative.
