This is the same infraction, a "strict liability" crime, over which the FBI raided former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. More importantly, it appeared to be one of a few crimes on which House Democrats and Biden's DOJ were hoping to indict him.
That seems less likely to happen now.
Some points on which we expand in this video: our system has an issue with over-classifying documents; as VP, Biden lacked the power to declassify documents; Trump, as president, enjoyed that power, although it's unclear if it occurred to him to exercise it in a punctual manner; the press immediately granted Biden the "benefit of the doubt", assuming nothing nefarious in his retention of documents; the same press immediately accused Trump of purloining and trading the codes to our nuclear arsenal; Trump's recalcitrance v. Biden's compliance; Hunter Biden's involvement; etc.
Toward the end, we discuss Tesla's announcement that it would be reducing the prices of its two cars: the Models 3 and Y. My Dad, a close follower of automobile trends, provides some clarity on the situation.

What is Finneran's Wake?
Finneran’s Wake – where the ART OF CONVERSATION lives. Where no topic is untouchable, no idea inadmissible, and no one too heretical to be heard.
In this age of ineloquence, this dark decade of intolerance, we’ve all forgotten how to talk and, more importantly, how to listen. I hope, on this channel, to rehabilitate and refine these two neglected acts.
As the great French essayist Montaigne once said, “To my taste, the most fruitful and natural exercise of our minds is conversation. I find the practice of it the most delightful activity in our lives”.
I agree. And so, I welcome you to join me. Let us exercise our minds together. Let us practice this delightful activity as friends. Let us engage, now and forever, in the art of conversation.
