A case of audio tapes hidden in former President Bill Clinton's sock drawer is coming to the forefront and could have huge implications on the situation around the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's residence in Florida.
As Trump's legal team prepares to take on the FBI, the decades-old story has suddenly become relevant in a development that no one saw coming.
The important part of the story was the decision by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson that the Presidential Records Act did not compel the National Archives to seize records in the possession of a former President.
That decision could be used by Trump's legal team as they continue to go on the offensive against the FBI and President Joe Biden's Department of Justice.
Jackson wrote in her decision, "Under the statutory scheme established by the PRA, the decision to segregate personal materials from Presidential records is made by the President, during the President's term and in his sole discretion."
That decision could very well become the cornerstone of Trump's argument that no records in his possession were classified as he had unclassified them. Bill Clinton being the source of Trump's best weapon against the FBI would be ironic indeed.
